    She's a bit of a nutter... Has she been at the mercury again?

    This shocks people now? Anyone remember back in the 80's when she was REALLY controversial?

    It doesn't "shock" me. I'm just surprised to see her disgrace another religion so shamelessly...given that she has her kabala spirituality side and all that. I would never mock a different religion, simply out of respect.

    It must be nice to have such cooperative religious organizations out there, willing to do all the advertising your tour needs.

    Why do you assume she's mocking it?

    First, because of where she was -- Russia. The dominant Christian group is Eastern Orthodoxy, arguably one of the most conservative branches of Christianity.
    Second, her past. The "Like a Virgin" video comes to mind.

    She knew she was angering Christians in Europe, but proceeded to do it in Russia.
    You don't wear a crown of thorns in a concert.
    Finally, it's Madonna.

    How does that make it mockery?

    How does "Like a Virgin" mock Christianity? And the fact people get angry because of it doesn't mean it's mockery.

    A crown of thorns and coming down on a cross is clearly trying to show her a Jesus. At least I can't think of any major figures in history having the same treatment and being known for it.

    She has extremely bad taste for doing such a thing.

    Well obviously. But how is that insulting?

    Yeah - a non-news story, just like all the others. I don't remember the Hindu reps getting all up in arms over the movie 'The Holy Grail' when a cow was launched over the castle walls.

    Oh right. Because they have understanding.

    I guess I must take a little personally, since she's doing whatever she's doing to my religion...

    If she's seriously a threat to your religion you should probably find a more robust religion.

    That requires independent thought and logic...two items that are not required for faith. Not taking a shot at you specifically, bg1256, just at the whole idea of being offended because the media tells you that you should be.

    Bunch of hypocrits. Hollywood routinely makes fun of Buddhist and Islamic symbols, and no one thinks anything about it.

    I loved that scene.

    @ bg1256 she's pretty much an attention whore. I do think that what she did was pretty disrespectful, and I'm not trying to be blase about it, but I pretty much just wrote it off in my mind as a publicity stunt, and left it at that.
