As expected, Madonna is ticking off people with her stage act.
Madonna's tour just began on Sunday, but she's already making people irate. Who's pissed this time? The Catholic League, who takes exception to the segment of her show in which she wears a crown of thorns while she's hanging from a crucifix.
“Knock off the Christ-bashing,” Catholic League president Bill Donohue said in a statement Monday. “It’s just pathetic.”
Though Donohue said that Madonna “has been spicing up her act with misappropriated Christian imagery for a long time,” he thought that her faith in Kabbalah might inspire new respect for religion.
“I guess you really can’t teach an old pop star new tricks,” he said. “Poor Madonna keeps trying to shock. But all she succeeds in doing is coming across as a boring bigot.”
Madge's “Confessions” tour continues through early September with dates throughout North America and Europe.
