This was what passed for edgy twenty years ago. Poor Vanity Fair and Madonna missed a memo. It’s still offensive but it’s so common that this barely raises an eyebrow. Look, we are seeing churches and pro-life centers burned to the ground and vandalized. Pro-lifers are being arrested. The government closed churches for months.
Anti-Catholicism is the last acceptable prejudice. And to be honest, it’s not just acceptable, it’s encouraged and applauded.
So what Madonna is telling everyone here along with Vanity Fair is that they agree with pretty much everyone they know. This is not rebellion, it’s conformity. It’s the “elites” agreeing how much they despise the oogedy-boogedy believers.

It seems to me that she is trying to stay relevant the same way she tried to stay relevant in the 90’s. I would like it to when a parent or grandparent tries to be “hip and cool” for the kids but it falls short because it is so outdated.

Seeing what she has turned herself into, today, is sad. Very sad.
She has become comically grotesque.
May her cry of desperation lead her to the Lord. Time is passing rapidly for all of us.

When a child plays grown up and dresses in adult clothes and make up it’s called cute. When an adult tries to play youthful and dresses in child’s clothing it’s called ….well not cute. Time for adults to act their age.

Have we noticed how many ‘rock stars’ have been dying lately? We aren’t what we were anymore. I’m 70 and I know I won’t live forever. I’m close to going home…

I see a person who has defined herself by the attention she gets. Now that her youth, beauty and talent seem to have gone, she tries the electroshock of attention-getting…controversy. Associating herself with THE image of woman. Yet, the world has gotten so offensive against the images, words and acts of our holy faith that one wonders if it even registers in the eyes of the secular anymore. In fact, do they even know what she is mocking? Probably not. Just ‘something Catholic’.

The point is to profane the name with herself. Like with the antipope.
