This off the wires today.
SANTIAGO, Chile — Madonna is causing "crazy enthusiasm" and "impure thoughts" on her first concert visit to Chile, a prominent retired cardinal complained on Wednesday, as he paused in a tribute to a late dictator to denounce the pop star.
Roman Catholic Cardinal Jorge Medina criticized the flamboyant singer during his homily at a Mass in honor of the late dictator Augusto Pinochet, who oversaw the deaths of some 3,200 dissidents during his 1973-1990 rule.
"This woman comes here and in an incredibly shameless manner, she provokes a crazy enthusiasm, an enthusiasm of lust, lustful thoughts, impure thoughts," said Medina, the cardinal who was chosen to announce the election of Pope Benedict XVI.
Where to begin?
First: a mass to CELEBRATE Pinochet?
Second: Madonna causing crazy enthusiasm? Provoking lustful thoughts?
Are we talking this century or last? During the reign of Pinochet or after?
While I should be the last person in the world to criticize people for odd sexual interests, my first thought as a heterosexual male looking at this recent picture of Madge.
Everyone has the right to their opinion about this, I suppose. I did like the line of Guy Ritchie, Madonna's estranged husband, who said that since her exercise mania, having sex with her was like "cuddling with a piece of gristle".
That's what I like about the Limeys. They are cruel, but fair. When they insult you, you know you've been insulted.
