Madonnas lustful performance offends God, says retired cardinalDecember 11th, 2008 - 1:30 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Dec 11 (ANI): Queen of pop Madonna has earned herself the ire of a retired Roman Catholic cardinal, who says that her performance on stage provokes a wild and lustful enthusiasm which is offensive to God.
Cardinal Jorge Medina told a congregation on December 10, during a mass for the late Chilean military dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet, that Madges performance brought about impure thoughts and deeds.
The singer had performed in Santiago on the Latin American leg of her Sticky and Sweet Tour to promote her album Hard Candy, reports the China Daily.
The atmosphere in our city is pretty agitated because this woman is visiting and with incredibly shameful behaviour provokes a wild and lustful enthusiasm, Medina said.
Thoughts of lust, impure thoughts, impure acts, are an offence to God and a dirty stain on our heart, Medina said in his homily marking the second anniversary of Pinochet’’s death.
The conservative prelate is reviled by some Chileans for his close ties to Pinochet, who died in 2006 without facing trial for the fate of 3,000 people who died or disappeared during his 1973-1990 rule. (ANI)
