‘How Many Divisions Has the Pope?’
The so-called Queen of Pop brings her show to Rome on Sunday, and Roman Catholic leaders are furious at part of her performance in which she wears a crown of thorns and is apparently crucified.
Cardinal Ersilio Tonino, speaking with the Pope's approval, said: "This is a blasphemous challenge to the faith and a profanation of the Cross. She should be excommunicated. To crucify herself … in the city of popes and martyrs is an act of open hostility. It is nothing short of a scandal and an attempt to generate publicity."
Sometimes, just sometimes, I wish the Vatican acted a bit more like our Mahometan friends. I bet there is one old slapper who wouldn't be so "brave" then.
