In a bid to get back into the limelight, Madonna has said something that has sparked outrage among Christian everywhere. Despite taking her name from the mother of Jesus Christ, Madonna has come out and claimed that she finds there to be something “sexual” about the way Jesus Christ is often portrayed hanging from the cross. Not only has her controversial statement about Jesus’s “sexuality” gotten her into the spotlight, but it has also gotten people talking about Madonna again after years of being off the radar for most Americans.
Do you want to read exactly what Madonna said regarding the image of Jesus on the cross and what she thinks Jesus’s views would be surrounding abortion? Well, this was the quote from the superstar singer.
“There’s something really extreme and dramatic about the idea that you know, in any church you go and you see a man on a cross, practically naked, bleeding from his wounds, and everyone genuflects and prays to him,” she said, according to Newsbusters. “I find that so intriguing, poetic, and sometimes sexual, sensual. And the idea that people are – in a way – it’s pagan because people are worshipping a thing.”
While Madonna’s views are controversial, they have also been refuted by many Christian sources. However, Madonna was eager to express what she would have to say if she ever got to speak to the number one Christian out there today – the Pope.
“Let’s talk about Jesus’ point of view about women. Let’s talk about it. What do you think he thought of women? And don’t you think Jesus would agree that a woman has the right to choose what to do with her body? I think he would be open to having that conversation with me.”
Although Madonna would not mind a conversation with the Pope to discuss Jesus and his views on abortion, the singer has also had to admit that the possibility of such a conversation is nearly impossible as she has been “excommunicated.”
“I’ve been excommunicated by the Catholic Church a few times,” she admitted with a grin back in an interview in 2015. “But I also feel like this new pope is kind of groovy, and I think we might be able to get together and have a chat about sex.”
