Madonna to do Jesus in Rome



"The time will come when this woman will realise that Christ died on the cross for her as well, that he spilt his blood for her. I feel pity for her."

. . .

Another Vatican official, Bishop Velasio De Paolis, said: " Wizards and satanists use religious objects for black masses and she is simply following them.

"How this woman can take the name of the mother of Christ I don't know. Her show represents the rotten fruit of secularism and the absurdity of evil. What adds to the offence is that she is doing this in the city which is the cradle of the Roman Catholic faith.

"A few months ago there was fury at the cartoons of Mohammed. Here we have a blatant profanity of the cross and no one bats an eyelid."

Madonna, 47, who was brought up a Catholic, said in an interview with the Italian edition of Vanity Fair that her horse riding accident last year brought her closer to God.
. . .

She has insisted on a new lavatory which must be removed when the concert is over and destroyed so that it does not end up on an internet auction site.

I was going to write: "Shock value without a message".

I've reconsidered: There's no shock value in this. The piss Christ has this beat 10x over, in terms of shock value, and it was equally irrelevant.

The most that can be hoped is that people will stop taking the Cross more seriously as they take Madonna.

'Pity' is Christian for 'hatred'.
