Yes well, the Church is always over sensitive anyways. I think the difference here is, Hyde uses a cross/crux while maddona WAS one. Still not that big of a difference but who cares XD

eh. people are mistakenly under the impression that what Madonna does matters, and possibly he's being intentionally blaspehemous. Hyde, on the other hand, will be written off as quicky Japanese who doesn't know any better. possibly not fair, but likely.

Random... I dont know if they use the same set all over the country/world or not. My bf's sister's friend's father made the cross on madonna's set. Because of that, my bf's sister got free row 6 seats to see her concert last weekend when she performed in LA O_O

I just now saw the video clip and *lol* You're right - I hadn't realized that Madonna was showing her Roentgen (XRay) Images while appearing on the mechnical 'cross'.

i duno why the cross things is still an issue after all these years, man it's Madonna's performance for god's sake! what do you expect anyway...it's only becoz the damn Church is still so sensitive about it so ppl keep on doing the blaspehemous stuff!

and Hyde...porbably he got inspired by Manilyn Manson or the other shock rockers...

The Church has never liked Madonna. I think the Church also needs to realize that not everyone finds it offensive. She's trying to shock. She's always done that and they're just feeding her cause by issuing statements.

Haha, yes, they do. You are right on.
The only ones getting shocked are the church and conservative groups... neither of which are likely to follow these artists.
I think all in all they are just going for the publicity that doing these things gets them. Easy and costless publicity.
All in all "I do it for the money" kinda fits them well.

"In 1990, the Pope called for a boycott of the Blond Ambition tour, in which Madonna simulated masturbation during Like A Virgin."

i guess they've never watched gackt's kagen no tsuki tour? lol
