Madonna Invites Pope To See Her Crucified On Stage
Star News ^ | August 4, 2006

Posted on 08/04/2006 4:48:57 PM PDT by NYer

MadonnaMadonna 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.'"

Yeah, she has no problem inviting him because she knows he won`t kill her. Let`s see her do a show for once on Islam. Show me Madonna how rebellious you truly are.

Actually, now that I think about it, Madonna being crucified is not such a bad idea.

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...)

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.

I agree.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How do you say... "Desperate for attention"?

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...

Flannery O'Connor.

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.

Madonna (with a few momentary lapses) has conducted herself both personally and professionally throughout her life in a manner that is the antithesis of the tenets of the Catholic Catechism. She insists, however, to insert many of the most sacred aspects of the Catholic faith into her "act" in the most demeaning and disgusting way.

I think her behavior is a combination of a willingness to do anything for attention mixed with a healthy modicum of guilt. I contend she could keep several psychiatrists employed full-time.

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.

Christ ministered to prostitutes.As a result,I could see where the Pope might accept this invitation.

But if he does,my guess is that "Madonna" will wish that he hadn't.

Yeah, she has all the courage of the owners of Comedy Central. What I've always found kind of strange about Madonna is that she's not really any more depraved than 75% of the acts out there, but she gets a lot of press for having a pretty worn out act. Of course, I'm still surprised that the Stones, Paul McCartney and the Beach Boys still sell out wherever they go.

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.

Excellent point.

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?
