Madonna's Crucifixion Cut

Madonna on the Cross (2006)NBC has cut out a mock crucifixion scene from a recording of Madonna's Confessions world tour, due to pressure from religious nutters in the USA. The scene was intended to persuade audiences to demonstrate Christian charity toward AIDs victims. The backdrop to the scene shows images of third-world poverty and a count indicating the 12 million African children orphaned by AIDs. So much for Christian charity at NBC. The main complaint in the UK seems to have been the astronomical price of tickets, which made Confessions the highest ever earner for a female artiste, according to US Billboard magazine. Next time, luv, try riding a fish - the earliest symbol of Christianity - and see if you draw as much flak. Madonna on fishback ... mm ... yummy. Banksy?
