The Whore of Rome - aka - Whore of Babylon -


aka - Madonna

Madonna - thank God I never liked her music - it belonged to gays and teenie-bopper girls - still does.

She's in Rome with her "Confessions" concert, not far from the Vatican I hear. This girl has made money, big money, flying in the face of Roman Catholic teaching. Now hitting the big time in Rome, with her offensive in the heart of the Eternal City. Not bad for a Catholic school girl still in rebellion of Catholic morality. You know the type, the slutty girl in school the nuns reprimanded for too much make-up. The defiant little spoiled brat that surlied her way around school, snapping her gum, hiking up her uniform skirt. She's still battling the rules, trying to shock. It's pretty adolescent and very gay. Nevertheless, she's rolling in the dough - her plan. So that qualifies her as a smart business woman - wow! She's not a dumb blonde! She's way more savvy than Paris Hilton?

Poor Fr. Benedict Groeschl may be the only one praying for her conversion. (He says he is doing that.) Disgruntled Catholic public sinners love to flaunt their sin in front of the world. It's pretty shallow. They are miserable, and their misery is exhibited as mockery, parody, and rebellion. Can't her so-called fans see through that? That's right, they are gay and teenage - kind of the same thing. If you tell me that her audience are adults, I will tell you about what is called "arrested development" that of which she is the Queen. (Sorry Elton!) Here is the story of her invitation to the Pope - how vulgar:

"Madonna Invites Pope To See Her Crucified On Stage

Madonna has invited Pope Benedict XVI to be the guest of honor at her Rome, Italy, Confessions concert on Sunday, which features the mock crucifixion of the singer. Religious leaders in Italy and The Vatican have united to publicly denounce the singer's controversial stage act, in which she is 'crucified' on a diamante-studded cross, while wearing a crown of thorns.

Ersilio Cardinal Tonino, speaking on behalf of The Pope, said yesterday, "This concert is a blasphemous challenge to the faith and a profanation of the cross. She should be ex-communicated. To crucify herself during the concert in the city of Popes and martyrs is an act of open hostility."

Madonna's spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg tells the New York Daily News, "I think the Pope would enjoy the show and would applaud her performance. He has an open invitation to see for himself the eloquence and beauty that Madonna expresses for humanity while performing her poignant* song 'Live To Tell.'"[snip]

*"poignant" does anyone believe she's at all sincere?! She is a dumb blonde - ambition or not.

    Harsh? Well, hey, it might seem that way. But a public taunt definately invites public response. Sometimes you just have to shine a bright light on something so you can see it for what it really is: Madonna's taunts are calculated to be revolting.

    The woman's soul is seriously in danger, and so are the souls of those who applaud her. I surely hope that Fr. Groeschel is NOT the only one praying for Madonna! (I know you do, Terry.) Even such a woman--making a thoroughly public display of filth, degradation, and blasphamy--can be redeemed.

    There must be something about the Church that attracts her, even though she rebels against it. That something must shake her pretty hard when she lets her guard down, considering all the bridges she's burned and all the roadblocks she's still throwing up to impede her conversion. She's so like a petulant child, stamping her foot: "I don't WANT to! You can't MAKE me!"

    Most people who are angry with God and/or His Church will get up on a soapbox and rant now and again. But poor Madonna is so gripped by that Catholic "something" that everything about her life is focused on it: a career built on deliberate public blasphemies and sexual sin in defiance of Church teaching; the rejection of Catholicism, yet still seeking ritual and mystery through the Kabbalah; even the very naming her own children, Lourdes Marie (Our Lady) and Rocco (St. Roch).

    As for excommunication, what for? We really don't need to kick her out since she has already removed herself from the Church's life. Why should we provide more grist for her publicity mill?

    Let's all of us keep praying for Madonna. All it takes is one trigger event to turn a soul back from the brink. Just ask St. Pelagia or St. Margaret of Cortona.

  5. Actually, Madonna would be the first to admit that she has excommunicated herself. To publicly excommunicate her would foment greater ridicule of the Church - she's proved herself in contempt for the Church and the Holy Father - nothing else needs to be said. It's a cultural war and attack against Christianity - it's all pervasive throughout the world, to single out a lapsed Catholic who has made it obvious she is an apostate would serve no good purpose for the Church.
