Yay, the return of the letters to Madge! I love these.

Spring

I nearly died at the "I'll have one box for 'YES' and one box for 'NO'" part. Those were the days...

The NEW, real Madonna

Boy George's assumption that since "Special K" is anti-gay that Esther Madge must no longer support homosexuality is like assuming all Christians must hate gays or all Mormons support George Bush (ask Ken Jennings about that one).

That being said, there are a great many religions (and so-called political activist groups) that as of late have been pounding the gay bashing drum - complete with a right-wing group attacking the AARP, claiming they "support gay marriage", solely to try to paint them as "un-American" to the masses.

As a result, I scratch my head a bit over Boy George lashing out. After all, didn't he see the irony - or was he bothered - when she was openly Catholic, yet was also supportive of gays? Why is it any different? Why is she now "using" homosexuality because she's following another (possibly) anti-homosexual religion?

Is "Special K" anti-gay? I don't know. It'd be amusing if it were, considering how many liberal entertainers have joined the cult in the last couple of years.

And, that's the thing. I think it's a cult, and like so many cults, people who become turned on by it are blind to what's REALLY going on with the "religion". I think Esther Madge is so blinded by the aspects of Kabbalah that appeal to her that she doesn't see the whole picture. I think she's been "blinded by the light", and if/when she ever wakes up and sees everything, she's probably going to feel like a real fool.

You know what I love, "New, real Madonna"? That you just started calling Kabbalah "Special K" so seamlessly...

I agree with you about the cultishness, though. Let's just appreciate the good to come out of this fight: a return to my "Letters to Madonna" series...

Madonna

Thanks. It was quite easy, especially since I could detect a touch of sarcasm in the term "Special K"....

And I like sarcasm. Not that it's too obvious in my writing....

I for one am glad to see the return of your Letters To Esther Madge, though. Should be a lot of fun..

HELLO SPECIAL K IS A DRUG DURRR!!!!!1

Spring, honey, Madonna used that whole "I like Gays and I'm Catholic" thing as a way to express her oppression.

In recent years, she came across as a woman who has figured it out...and who CHOSE to go with Kabbalah after her soul searching (Ray of Light). Remember?

So, actually, someone was sleeping during Kabbalah classes...or, forgot to stamp out that little homophobe tidbit in her created religion.

Because, let's face it, you're not huge until you're a Christ. TOM CRUISE!

OOOPS...that was addressed to "The NEW, real Madonna," not "Spring."

Andres
