If Madonna is trying to be like Jesus than I will kill her next time she is near my area. I will carry a gun with me and kill her on stage, then I will throw some holy water on her and watch her disintigrate into hell. If she was trying to connect herself to God to try and be edgy than she really has lost all self respect and is performing out of desperation. Her life is worthless then anyway. I'm sure God wouldn't mind if I ended her life.

But it stands to reason that most people who feel strongly that they are happy the cross will not be shown in her act would also feel strongly it should be BANNED from being shown.

That's a non sequitur for the reasons previously outlined.

Unfortuantely, not everyone is going to reason it out like you have. Most people simply let THEIR biases have them say "They should just ban that", instead of the distinction we are making.

I don't have any data to support it....so you can called it biased. But I still think I'm right.

It's true that we're all beholden to our biases to a certain extent; I've never denied that. The best we can do is try to reason things out and make informed judgments based on the available evidence.

Now that's just stupid. I'm hoping that was poor satire.

Madonna has just fallen off and is trying to get some form of attention directed towards her. She should just commit suicide now. Why the **** would you do that anyway. She is just doing it because she knows she can get away with it. If she did this to Islams they would be outraged. 95% of Christians are just going to take this like it is nothing. I don't bull**** like that. I take offense when my religon is insulted.

your religon? i sure hope you arent talking about christianity! because you are doing a really good job of promoting our image....not really. what would it help to have christians protest this? it would just put her in the spotlight even more, that what she wants..if she is ignored and dont the attention that she so craves, maybe she will go away and spare my eyes from seeing her in a retro 80s workout suit ever again!!!!!!!!!!!

Who cares? Neither Madonna nor the Christian right should ever be taken seriously. This is a non issue to me.

Wake me up when Jesus shows up to prove the Christians right.

I will not sit back and let my religon be trashed. **** that. If we let her do whatever we want than she has won too. Its a double-edged sword. I would rather take the half that stands up and defends our religon, than take the half that does nothing.

What makes me laugh (even tho it is sad) is the arrogance of mankind....Supposed followers of the most powerful entity in all of creation have the gall to think that God (who is supposed to be almighty) needs you to protect his name

Good one....

god doesnt need you to threaten violence against other men on his behalf.... He is already more powerful than you could ever imagine....

Religion has definitely poisoned man and corrupted God's message to man....

he doesnt need you to stand up for him... he has giving you a gift and has given you guidlines on how to live and how to treat others... Yet we still dont get it...

if you look around the world at all the war and rumors of war, hatred and destruction...it becomes obvious that we have lost our way..
