Bulgarian Orthodox Church In An Uproar Over Madonna Concert

Bulgarian Orthodox Church In An Uproar Over Madonna Concert

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Madonna fans are being urged to stay away from her forthcoming Sticky and Sweet tour date in Bulgaria by the country`s Orthodox Church.

Church of Bulgaria officials have accused the star of showing a `lack of respect` for church rituals.

A statement from the Church accused Madonna of displaying `a disrespectful and intolerant attitude` to the religious feelings of Christians on her ongoing tour."

Madonna doesn`t need to hire a publicity agent to promote her world tour, various Christian denominations are doing a terrific job of bringing attention to the Material Girl.

I wish a church would criticize my essays to increase my readership from thousands to millions. The pope looks like a clown with his dunce cap and red dancing shoes. Anyone from the Vatican reading this?

An entertainer is under no obligation to respect the rituals of any church, if a singer is worth her salt her songs will criticize the hypocrisies of political and religious institutions.

Madonna`s penchant for wearing leotards offends my aesthetic sensibilities, but girlfriend has a right to perform wherever she wants.
