Madonna Would Like To Have Tea With The Pope, Maybe Tell Him A Few Jokes

madonna_rebel_heart_vazadaI have a long relationship with the Pope, with the Vatican, with the Catholic Church, with my excommunication. Anyway, you know, I was raised a Catholic, and no matter what spiritual path I might go down, I always feel some kind of inexplicable connection with Catholicism. It kind of shows up in all of my work, as you may have noticed…

I’ll state the obvious and say that he seems like he’s a much more open-minded individual, who seems to be moving outside of the dogma of the Catholic Church that has been set in stone since the days of Constantine. So I think it’s good.

It’s good to look out into the big, wide world and see that we have changed, and at the end of the day the message of Jesus is to love your neighbor as yourself, and so that means not judging. And to do that, you have to be more open-minded and accepting of people who have lifestyles that you perceive as unconventional. So I think it’s good, yeah. And I also believe that he’s the kind of Pope you could sit down and have a cup of tea with, and/or that you could make a joke about something and he would laugh about it.”

    Oh thank heaven! I finally know how Madonna feels about the Pope. I will rest easy tonight knowing that one more life quest has been conquered!

    @FnameLname: LOL too funny. She needs to stop acting as though we in the LGBT community owe her anything just because some gay men rush out and buy her new music and think it’s fine that she’s old and acts like a teenager which makes her look even more foolish than she already is.

    Madonna and the Catholic puppet are both jokes. Just let each of them look in the mirror…

    Ohhh My God. She can do no wrong.

    Sure, the Jewish convert/Kabbala cultist can tell him why wearing a rosary is “sexy.”

    OMG. That photo is so retouched that Madge looks one dimensional.

    Madonna hates Catholics, she’s been engaging in petty mockery of other people’s religion since the beginning. I dare this cu*nt to mock and ridicule Islam. She wouldn’t make it.
