Madonna Gets Religion

I certainly hope Madonna internalizes something besides the worship of Madonna from this latest fad in the ever-changing kaleidoscope of new identities and personas. It would be a step, however meager, from her almost total self-absorption if she did. But one gets the impression that this is simply the latest fashion accessory, as much in the service of her rapacious ego as everything that has gone before.

“All said and done, my friends, it will be an ill day for us if what most humans mean by “Religion” ever vanishes from the Earth. It can still send us the truly delicious sins. Nowhere do we tempt so successfully as on the very steps of the altar.” – Uncle Screwtape
