Several polish nationalists have spoken out against Madonna for planning her first Polish concert on a Christian holy day.

Many have decried her plan to perform in Warsaw on August 15, the day that Christians commemorate the Virgin Mary's ascension into heaven.

A representative from a 'Pro Polonia' group said that the pop star is a "crypto-Satanist' who goes out of her way to offend religious believers.

"Madonna specialises in offending religious feelings... It is possible to suspect her of being a crypto-Satanist," Marian Baranski said at a news conference.

"Madonna sneers at Jesus Christ, the symbol of the cross and all Christians," added Zygmunt Wrzodak, a former member of the Polish parliament.

Former president Lech Walesa urged Madonna to move the date of her Polish concert, but she would not be swayed, reports Reuters.
