Madonna To Imitate Jesus on NBC

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:49 am by blog

NBC has approved airing a Madonna concert that features the singer hanging on a cross wearing a crown of thorns. I have to wonder if it would be aired if it were a concert where muhammed was being mocked. The show is set to air in November.

NBC has given the green light to include Madonna-on-the-Cross footage in an upcoming November Sweeps concert special!

    I guess the Christians will be out in the streets burning cars and effigies of Madonna…oh wait, Christians don’t typically do that since we’re civilized and don’t want to revert back to the Second Century like another religion, who will remain namless (Islam), does.

    I think Madonna (and Kanye West for that matter) has let the bright lights of the stage fry her brain if she thinks she is to be compared to Jesus Christ. Madonna is a 40 something pop star trying to keep her career alive as long as possible, and while I dont fault her for that, I dont think it is appropraite to do it by being offensive to Christians. I think she should go back to her “Like a Virgin” days and stay away from the “Like Jesus” thing until she really decides to actually be like Jesus.

    God can work wonders in people’s lives, so don’t give up hope, but don’t hold your breath either. You might turn blue before Madonna becomes “Christ-like”.
