Skip to comments.Interesting dig towards Christians during Boston Globe interview with Madonna

What's been Kabbalah's effect on you?
To me, the definition of religion is not asking questions. In England, soccer is the religion. In America, Christianity is the religion. It's really just what a group of people tends to do because everybody else does it. . . . If you want to talk about corruption and violence and pain, let's talk about the Catholic Church. Let's talk about the Crusades, when they annihilated anyone who wouldn't convert to Christianity. That's religion, but that's not what I'm interested in.
I'm relieved to hear that. The new book, ''Lotsa de Casha," is about a man who's rich but still miserable. Doesn't money make life easier?

Desperately bored, I read the Madonna interview when this little gem caught my attention. The italics are the interviewer's (Shanahan) questions. The bold was added by me.
"I'm relieved to hear that"????
Thoughts? Am I overreacting?
I certainly hope you've learned your lesson!
"Let's talk about the Crusades, when they annihilated anyone who wouldn't convert to Christianity."
Let's talk about today when muslims behead christians.
LOL!!! Believe it or not, I really have been having blood pressure problems lately. Perhaps you've pinpointed the problem.
Seriously though - don't you find it odd that a reporter is "relieved" that someone doesn't take religion seriously? I think that this is a big deal. Or am I wrong?
No, I don't.
Nor would I find it odd that this "jounalist" hates President Bush and went out of his way to fire off a barb in W's direction every chance he got.
I think "pathetic" would be a better term.
"don't you find it odd that a reporter is "relieved" that someone doesn't take religion seriously?"
It doesn't strike me as odd, it strikes me as being run-of-the-mill. And, it's one of the biggest reasons for the decline of mainstream media, and the rise of the various alternative media.
Why did the Crusaders sack Constantinople, the capital of Eastern Christendom?
P.S. You're an idiot!
If you want to talk about corruption and violence and pain, let's talk about Islam, Madonna.
Funny how she won't take on those guys, isn't it?
Who is the biggest fool? Madonna, anyone who interviews Madonna about her brain dead New Age kabbalah beliefs and the Berg scam/cult, or anyone (like me) who reads her moronic statements? I say Madonna.
I wouldn't be too concerned.
Her grasp of history seems to be just this side of nonexistent.
Why did Crusaders team up with Muslims to attack and kill other Crusaders teamed up with other Muslims?
P.S. You're a complete moron!
Would you really want to hear her answer to that question? I don't think I would!
Well - I guess by "odd" is that I think that the reporter and the Globe slipped up here and no one who matters has picked up on it because..well..it's a Madonna interview.
Of course I find Madonna's comments insulting, but she's an idiot and also, she doesn't claim to be unbiased.
The Globe and their reporter, however, would deny up and down his religious bigotry. I think they've been caught here
Should I fire off something to their ombudsman for giggles?
Madonna transcends politics...nobody cares to hear her opine.
Sure, give it a shot. Even if you don't get any results, you still have the opportunity to tick off some leftist. Any day you can tick off a leftist is a good day.
In my opinion, the Arts Section in the New York Times and the Boston Globe demonstrates equally corrosive liberal basis as the editorial pages. Nearly every review takes some kind of drive-by shot at mainstream America (including religion).
I've learned to stay away from Arts Sections altogether. I don't like being sneered at by pretentious twits. For me, that's not entertainment!
Did she even finish high school? Not that that would help her in the history department these days.
Kabbalah has been hijacked by liberals within the Jewish religion. There have been rabbis who have been kicked out for teaching Kabbalah. Kabbalah is not to be taught to anyone that is 1)Not Jewish and 2)Not doing decades long study of Judaism and most importantly 3)FEMALE.
A serious philosophy that was meant to filter out liberals has been taken over by arrogant ministers, making their own new rules and bastardizing time-old traditions What does this sound like?
Why, this sounds like the infiltration of the Mainline Christian denominations by the leftists! What a surprise!
