A Bit Late?

The Vatican is outraged with Madonna after she performed a mock crucifixion onstage:
Cardinal Ersilio Tonino, speaking with the approval of Pope Benedict XVI said: "This time the limits have really been pushed too far.

"This concert is a blashphemous challenge to the faith and a profanation of the cross. She should be excommunicated."
This would be the Madonna who has been practicing the Jewish Kabbalah religion since 1997? The Madonna who is thinking of buying a house in Israel so she can see the coming of "the Messiah" firsthand? (It seems St. John addressed the issue of Christians who apostasize in I John 2.) The Madonna who "made out" with "Jesus" in her "Like a Prayer" video 19 years ago and whose entire career has been mockery of the Mother of God? Ya think maybe it's time she should be excommunicated? (And despite the fact that a papal representative has spoken, one can rest assured if Madonna showed up for communion this Sunday in England, the priest would commune her.)

If only the papal legates had had such reticence to excommunicate in 1054....
