Madonna on NBC - You decide!

I don't know if you have heard or not but NBC is going to air a Madonna concert in November and many people are up in arms about it. Not the fact that it is a Madonna concert, but what Madonna is supposed to do in the concert.

I received an email from a friend put out by the American Family Association. Here is an excerpt:

NBC, Madonna Set To Mock The Crucifixion of Christ

Following the lead of Rosie O'Donnell and ABC, NBC has decided to join in the bashing of Christians by airing a Madonna special in November. A specific date has not been released.

In the show, Madonna, wearing a fake crown of thorns, descends on a suspended mirrored, disco ball-type cross. When some Christian leaders complained about the mockery, NBC ignored their concerns.

If you would like to see a video clip of it go here.
The AFA has a petition started to send to NBC. They are trying to get 1 million signatures to try and convince NBC to not air this show.
Am I going to call NBC or pass the petition around for signatures? Probably not. It does offend my senses as a Christian but I will show my dislike for it by chosing to not watch it if it does air.

Should you call or sign the petition? That is up to you.

I think Madonna thrives on shock value and this is another one of her pathetic attempts to do something new and shocking to keep her career going. I think it is plain tacky but am strong enough in my faith that I don't feel I need to convince NBC to not air it.

What are your feelings about this? Feel free to talk amongst yourselves.
(a little "Coffee Talk" reference there)


  1. Nothing Madonna does shocks me...unless she decided to go full on fundamentally Amish.

  2. ha ha, that would really be funny!

  3. I agree with you. She does these things for publicity, and boy does she get it. As they say, there is no such thing as bad publicity. I think it is best to ignore her and not support the frenzy...good or bad.

  4. Like it really matters. Everybody already thinks Maddonna is a hoe in the first place... I really don't think she'd be getting any publicity from this anyway if it weren't for the angry Christians. Just ignore her...

  5. I really admire this woman ! She came from far far away and made it just by provocating people ! I always remember I have seen a Madonna show on TV in the States while I were visiting my aunt (american) and she and I had a lot of fun about the reaction of all these moralistic people. That's just what Madonna wanted. When she was wearing a cross around her neck, that already shocked people but became very fashionable. I think it comes out of her italian catholic education. (My husband is italian) And that, I can tell you is something special ! So I don't wonder AT ALL that she behaves like that.

    Why is it tacky? I don't understand? Are you sure you are strong enough in your faith?

  7. The wonderful thing about America is that you can choose to turn it off if you want. It's about choice.

    Besides, isn't this the Like a Prayer video all over again?

  8. i find it interesting that the one person who questions your beliefs and your strength, is the only person not courageous enough to put their name to their comment.

    This might explain why she has to leave the country to find a baby to adopt?
