Sit down. I know this is going to shock you, but Madonna's new arena show is, er, offensive to Roman Catholics. Not every crooner crowns her head with thorns and perches herself on a mirrored cross, but let's be real -- it's so ten years ago. Even the equestrian bondage stuff is a throwback to the 70s Equus phenom.
Madonna is a very effective evangelist for her cause. This, I think, is the essential problem. We're jealous. Christians, on the other hand, are lousy evangelists when it comes to communicating the gospel. Our message is massaged to accommodate young people, old people, genxers, church shoppers, and other barbarians. Barbarians find barbarism attractive. Christians find christianity attractive.
A worship center in our town proclaims boldly on its sign, "God's not mad at you, no matter what." They arrive for the experience dead, and leave the same way.
