Madonna will performing in the Italian capital on Sunday and she is not welcomed. Rome’s Catholic, Muslim and Jewish leaders have united to condemn Madonna’s decision to stage a mock-crucifixion. She never fails to create national news. Madonna owns the word “controversy” . How does she create controversy this time? wears a crown of thorns and descends on a suspended, glittery cross as part of her worldwide “Confessions Tour”.
Cardinal Ersilio Tonino, speaking with the approval of Pope Benedict XVI said:
“This time the limits have really been pushed too far.
“This concert is a blashphemous challenge to the faith and a profanation of the cross. She should be excommunicated.”
Â Madonna can still sell records and create headlines, but radio continues to ignore her.
