Madonna Defends Her Stage Show's Mock Crucifixion Scene



Madonna has finally spoken out about the controversial mock-crucifixion scene in her "Confessions" world tour.

Pop superstar Madonna came to the surface Thursday September 21st, set the record straight on the "misinterpretations" of her stage show's mock crucifixion scene. The "Material Girl" issued a statement that day, following the final date of her record-breaking Confessions tour, which wrapped up in Tokyo, claiming the stunt as "neither anti-Christian, sacrilegious or blasphemous".

Unlike the many "spiritual crisis" judgment addressed to her, the singer on the other way around said the crucifixion scene was meant to send a message of unity that Jesus would appreciate. "I wanted to explain it myself once and for all", Madonna explained. "It is no different than a person wearing a cross or 'taking up the cross,' as it says in the Bible."

Also she added, "It is my plea to the audience to encourage mankind to help one another and to see the world as a unified whole. I believe in my heart that if Jesus were alive today he would be doing the same thing." Furthermore, Madonna revealed that she did the stunt because she wanted to draw attention to the plight of children in Africa.

"I wanted to bring attention to the millions of children in Africa who are dying every day or are living without care, without medicine and without hope. I am asking people to open their hearts and minds to get involved in whatever way they can."
