The ADDITIONAL outrage by Madonna

We all know she's been touring the world with a concert that includes her number "Live to Tell," in which she stages a " mock crucifixion of herself on a glittering cross and wearing a crown of thorns. Despite objections from Catholic, Muslim and Jewish leaders she performed it in Rome, only two miles from the Vatican.

However, I just learned today that during the number in Rome she included background video in which she mixed images of Pope Benedict XVI with those of Hitler and Mussolini.

I read it in a report published today by Elizabeth Lev who writes from Rome for Zenit.org.

Fr. Stephanos, to say that I'm appalled is the understatement of the year. This woman needs psychiatric help ... and probably an exorcism.

What in the name of all that's holy did the gentle, loving and gracious Joseph Ratzinger ever do to this woman for her to do this abomination to him? What???

How could anyone stoop so low? How?

Ouch.
Good thing we can take or leave her concerts.
It's just... sensationalism and money making. You don't have to subscribe to her point of view, nor give it any more thought. Discard what insults your soul, said Walt Whitman. I think he's right.

Father, your post on smoking should have a similar address to those like Madonna, only the title should be blaspheme now, burn later.

This is so sick. We should pray for those formerly Catholic entertainers who do things like this.

Simply put, he exists and is faithful to the teachings of the church. Something Madonna isn't.

I'm a big supporter of free speech, but German prosecutors will be watching Madonna with a close eye at her upcoming concert.

A stunt like that could violate their strict law against insulting religion, and she could be arrested. One source I read said they are prepared to take her off the stage.

That should be interesting.
