MADONNA’S NEW CD TRASHES CATHOLICISM
Catalyst May Issue 2012
Madonna’s new CD, MDNA, broke no records. Her single, “Girl Gone Wild,” didn’t make the Billboard 100 was called “the worst single she’s ever released.”
That was too kind. The song’s obscene video shows the 53-year-old tramping around in black hot pants and stiletto heels while gyrating with well-greased topless guys in tight black pants. The homoerotic show is so vulgar that YouTube says the video is unfit for those under 18 and even asked Madonna to recut a video for the teeny boppers. Good luck.
She is also a notorious Catholic basher. “Girl Gone Wild” starts with Madonna reciting the first few lines of “The Act of Contrition.” She must have known it was Lent. She prances around to a light-show resembling a cross. A guy wearing a crown of thorns was another Easter present.
The CD also featured “I’m a Sinner.” With lyrics like “I’m a sinner, I like it that way,” Madonna made clear that she always has Catholicism on her mind: “Hail Mary full of grace” was followed by a quip about Jesus, St. Christopher and St. Anthony.
Madonna likes narcotics. She admitted that MDNA was chosen to reference her name and the drug MDMA; “I’m a Sinner” has a line referring to “magic dust,” the PCP drug. The open-minded gang tolerates this. In their moral universe, Catholic bashing is cool; homosexual themes are beautiful; and drugs are fun. But there is one thing that Madonna does while performing “Girl Gone Wild” that will tick them off: she is shown smoking a cigarette.
