MATERIAL GIRL STRIKES AGAIN

The singer Madonna kicked off her “Confessions” tour in Los Angeles yesterday. Between political statements and oral sex jokes, Madonna found the time to don a crown of thorns, hang from a mirrored cross and croon her ballad “Live to Tell” in front of a screen flashing images from the Third World.



Commenting on this is Catholic League president Bill Donohue:

“When the Material Girl first embraced Kabbalah, we thought her new-found faith would inspire her to show some respect for religion. It stands to reason that a woman whose faith is so important to her that she drags her rabbi to her concerts would not want to mock the faith of others.

“But I guess you really can’t teach an old pop star new tricks. Madonna has been spicing up her act with misappropriated Christian imagery for a long time now. Perhaps she can’t arouse any interest in her work without it. Poor Madonna keeps trying to shock. But all she succeeds in doing is coming across as a boring bigot.

“Do us all a favor, Madge, and stick to singing and dancing. Knock off the Christ-bashing. It’s just pathetic.”

Madonna has talent, as evidenced by her role in Evita. But I find her perversion of Christian imagery to be offensive.

It's just an easy way keep her name in the papers. Since the hippie era, many musicians have measured thier worth by how much they can shake up the establishment.

Kaballah is a Jewish version of the occult. There are numerous legends of people going insane while studying it.

The case of Shabetai Zvi is a great example. Shabetai was a dullard who convinced a Kabalist that he was the Messiah. In some messianic kabalist traditions the messiah obeys the biblical laws by breaking the code.

Zvi had convinced many Jews that he was the messiah. Well the Sons of Allah told Zvi that if he did not convert to Islam he would be a head shorter. Zvi was a dullard and knew it is far better not to lose your head while pretending to be the messiah.

The moral of the story Kaballah and mental illness are a perfect blend. I bet Weasie even has a dog eared copy laying arounf

She is getting old and shes a smart business woman. You know she is going to try to tap as much out of her career while she still has some youth left.

I knew that Kaballah was related to Jewish mysticism and meditation, but other than that I have no idea what it is really about. After reading your comment I looked it up at Wikapadia and still don't know much about it. I wonder why Madonna doesn't do the same routine with Allah instead?

This latest peccadilloe has already dissapeared.

She ain't news. Better to ignore.

*sigh*

Isn't she ready to retire yet?

Ducky, I think you've hit the nail on the head; best to deny her the attention she so craves!

Madonna's business is publicity and she is good at it (unlike her singing).

The occult is not as far removed as one thinks in Islam. Sufi Mystics have been practicing for years and there are odd beliefs on djinn.

Has the duck been reincarnated? This is the second post of his that I thought actually made sense. However, I have no sympathy, nor do I give any credibility to what the Catholic League has to say about any person who is anti-religious, or anti-anything that the Catholic Church represents. I say this as a Catholic person. The Church has been flirting with and entertaining leftism and socialism for as long as I can remember, and now all of a sudden it finds itself "abandoned" by most of the people who represent the hard left. Many of the "Catholic" universities are bastions of the radical left. I suppose this is a good example of "reap what you sow."
