Madonna’s crucifixion stunt “close to blasphemy”

Filed under: Madonna — by celebreporter @ 3:58 pm

Madonna has managed to do what political leaders all over the world have failed at – unite Rome’s Catholic, Muslim and Jewish leaders.Unfortunately for the singer the religious leaders have united to slam her decision to continue with plans to perform her mock-crucifixion during her show at the Olympic Stadium in the Italian capital.

Father Manfredo Leone of Rome’s Santa Maria Liberatice has branded the move as being “disrespectful, in bad taste and provocative” and said that it was “close to blasphemy”.

“Being raised on a cross with a crown of thorns like a modern Christ is absurd. Doing it in the cradle of Christianity comes close to blasphemy,” E!Online quoted him, as saying.

Mario Scialoja, the head of Italy’s Muslim League, also added that Madonna’s new stunt was in “the worst taste”.

“I think her idea is in the worst taste and she’d do better to go home,” he said.

Riccardo Pacifici, the spokesman of the Roman Jewish community, agreed with both and said that the ‘Hung Up’ singer should pull the offending routine from the Rome show.
