A quick update: I posted something a couple weeks back about Madonna’s television concert that’s set to air on Nov. 22 on NBC. Madonna has been “crucifying” herself during her world tour and several Christian groups did not want to see this part of her act on national TV.
Well, a few days ago, Madonna’s spokeswoman told Reuters that NBC decided against showing the mock crucifixion — she sings suspended from a giant mirrored cross, wearing a crown of thorns — and that the singer had relucantly given in.
Madonna’s still going to do the bit, but the TV cameras will look elsewhere until she’s done.
Still, Bill Donohue, the president of the “Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights,”:http://www.catholicleague.org/ isn’t quite satisfied. “NBC did the right thing, but the fact that it did not say why the offensive part of Madonna’s concert was cut shows cowardice,” he said.
