Madonna And The Crucifixion

It looks like the Queen of Shock is at it again. The Material Girl has brought her Confessions Tour to Rome. She even invited the Pope as the guest of honor at the Rome concert.

Madonna lives to shock people with her acts. I honestly believe she does it for the fun of it more than the money. So, I'm not surprised with the 2006 Madonna. After all, she's the Material Girl. Any shock that brings more ticket sales and pisses off many people, she'll be all over it.

The Washington Times reports:

Vatican officials have suggested Madonna -- the U.S. pop singer, that is -- should be excommunicated for re-enacting the crucifixion in her new stage show.

Madonna is scheduled to bring her Confessions Tour to Rome this Sunday, complete with the scene in which she wears a crown of thorns and appears to be hung on a cross, The Telegraph reports.

Cardinal Ersilio Tonino called the scene "an act of open hostility."

"It is nothing short of a scandal and an attempt to generate publicity," he added.

That's EXACTLY why she's doing it. As for ex-communicating her, is she still a Catholic? I thought she left Catholicism a long time ago.

I've always thought Madonna was overrated. The Vatican really shouldn't have gone for the bait she was holding out. It would have been much more dignified to ignore the whole thing.

Liam,

She's taking her tour to Russia. The Russian Orthodox Church is really furious about this show.

As you said, churches should ignore her tour. That's the best message they can send to her.
