Posted on 08/04/2006 4:48:57 PM PDT by NYer
Madonna has invited Pope Benedict XVI to be the guest of honor at her Rome, Italy, Confessions concert on Sunday, which features the mock crucifixion of the singer. Religious leaders in Italy and The Vatican have united to publicly denounce the singer's controversial stage act, in which she is 'crucified' on a diamante-studded cross, while wearing a crown of thorns.
Ersilio Cardinal Tonino, speaking on behalf of The Pope, said yesterday, "This concert is a blasphemous challenge to the faith and a profanation of the cross. She should be ex-communicated. To crucify herself during the concert in the city of Popes and martyrs is an act of open hostility."
Madonna's spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg tells the New York Daily News, "I think the Pope would enjoy the show and would applaud her performance. He has an open invitation to see for himself the eloquence and beauty that Madonna expresses for humanity while performing her poignant song 'Live To Tell.'"
Just ignore her. She'd hate that.
Actually, now that I think about it, Madonna being crucified is not such a bad idea.
The last gasp of her career....next she'll set up a political blog, like BraBra.
That hag has jumped the shark.
She's a pig-slut, but the girl still has a hell of a body.
My husband wants to know if she's going to use real nails!!
Isn't this the same kind of thing Sinead O'Connor did when she tore up the pic of the pope?
How far is Madonna gonna go before people just can't stand to hear her name? (I'm already there...)
Let's just burn her at the stake.
Gotta hammer? I've got the nails.
Madonna thinks she's controversial because she can descend to every level of depravity and offend people with her despicable behavior. Those that encourage such behavior disguise such disgusting actions as "controversial". Watch this word. Whenever it is mentioned in the media, you can bet they are trying to balance out the debate by covering for one side by portraying their actions as "controversial". It's a pitiful tactic. Madonna's never done a single controversial tactic in her life. Try crucifying Mohammed, Madonna. See how that flies. That would be truly controversial.
I give her 5 years before she decides she's a muslim. However her conversion won't last long once muslims start calling for her head.
Let's start a campaign to taunt Madona into doing a Mohamed slam concert or "song". If we "dare"her it will do two things...1) it will make her present stunt look lame and passe 2)it will push her fans to demand she do it.
I wonder if she would even make it through ONE song against the MOOOSlims.
Oh, yes, and let her invite the leaders of Hezbollah.
Now THAT would be controversial.
she's a witch! she turned me into a newt.
Liberals are bullies and cowards at heart. They repeatedly attack the Christians and Jews they know won't react with violence.
I for one challenge liberals all the time to treat muslims with the same venom they treat us with. Cowards all.
She's more in need of an exorcism than an excommunication.
You're exactly correct. As I said on another thread, this sort of blasphemy is not daring or edgy -- it is dull, trite, vapid, conventional, safe, unimaginative and conformist.
What a skank!
She needs Jesus.
True rebels will always be the ones who rebel to ascend to a higher place. Like you say, Madonna descends. She doesn`t accomplish anything, except to sell herself and her plastic discs. A true rebel is someone like this.....
Or this heroic 16 year old girl who gave her life for what she knew was right....
Madonna is not a rebel, Madonna is pond scum. I respect her no more than the cockroaches in my sewer. Not because I choose to, but because she demands it.
And the main reason the media is such a cheerleader for "entertainers" like this is because they tear down the moral fabric we, as a Judeo-Christian culture and society, once held dear.
Jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge is always a good one too.
Is it OK to hope that's next?
Unfortunately, this creature sold her soul a long time ago.
In a Flannery O'Connor short story, this "scene" would end with a bolt of lightning from heaven increasing her body temperature to about 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit for a few milliseconds or so...
Frank the budding novelist
Perhaps the Lord will grant her the Stigmata as an invitation to know Him as He is.
That you should mention Flannery. An absolute master in her own right. Her short stories, The Misfit. Wise Blood. The Strong Bear it Away and A Good Man is Hard to Find. I digress, as I usually do.
Another scenario though. A small boy, his mind twisted and warped by crude interpretations of the bible. He sets fire to Madonnas mansion. He believes he has purified Madonna.
Seriously though, I care not for the woman, or whether she goes smiling to the grave. I do care for what example she has set young women. They do not get away unscathed, that SHE has, defies logic.
Her "sex" period demonstrated that at heart she is an exhibitionist who wants to be noticed no matter what it takes.
What a sad existence.
Utterly vile and classless skank.
But if he does,my guess is that "Madonna" will wish that he hadn't.
When all she really needs is a holy confessor.
It has always baffled me why anyone would pay attention to this mediocre, irrelevent, non-entity.
I have never seen her appeal.
Madonna, "I'm an attention whore. LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME!!!"
I have to ask... Are you related to Nacho Libre?
Madonna is one of those subjects for which I would like to employ DU language standards. That is the only way to give full expression to my thoughts on this succubus.
A flurry of Wikipedia this morning. I have who he is. The answer is unfortunately, no relation to the flying fellow. (laughs).
I enjoy listening to a lot of old music, but the Beach Boys, getting off dialysis to sing about surfing with Betty Lou at the beach is vaguely pathetic.
What an evil person she is.
Actually, I was going to add that, but to obtain the spiritual results necessary would require sincerity on Madonna's behalf. I don't know if she wants or cares to cleanse her soul?
