Crucified in the Media

OK, so there's plenty of serious news to report:

There's a major religious symposium going on at CC.

The Center for Christian-Jewish Dialogue talked about chaplains last night.

James Dobson is dedicating a two-part radio show to the elections.

And a priest has come forward to say that he frolicked naked with a young Mark Foley.

But it's Friday, and we deserve to talk about something lighter. Like Madonna.

Apparently the Material Girl is pulling a controversial scene from her upcoming NBC concert, where she climbs on a cross while singing "Live to Tell." The concert will air Nov. 22.

The move was done under pressure from a host of religious groups who felt the scene (wherein Madonna also wears a crown of thorns) was mocking Christianity. Madonna begged to differ, saying, "I believe in my heart that if Jesus were alive today he'd be doing the same thing."
