Madonna and the Gays: Together Forever
Madonna and gay people will be linked forever. Their latest intertwined moment: bringing calm and unity to the major religions of the world. The Jews, the Catholics and the Muslims all hate each other, but hatred of gay people was enough to bring them all together and condemn a gay pride parade in Jerusalem. Now, Madonna has done the same thing in Rome: Catholic, Muslim and Jewish leaders have all condemned her tour and the scene where she is hanging on a disco ball-like crucifix while singing "Live To Tell" and urging people to fight AIDS. hey, I understand the Catholics and the Muslims (Jesus is a major prophet in the Koran, alongside Abraham, et al) but why do the Jews care?
