Pop diva Madonna has come into the ambit of religious controversy again,with a former president comparing her to the Satan.
Nobel Prize-winning former Polish president Lech Walesa has expressed his displeasure with the fact that Madonna’s upcoming show ‘Sticky & Sweet’ is happening on the same day as the Feast Of The Assumption,the day Mother Mary ascended to Heaven,Femalefirst reported.
“It is a Satanic provocation. I am a man of faith and ask for such events not to happen on such an important feast in my religion,” said the devout Roman Catholic.
Madonna’s scheduled concert was described as “an attack by the devil on our immaculate Catholic nation” by Father Stanislaw Malkowski who is leading the protest against the controversial pop star.
Madonna had earlier run into a controversy with the Catholic church for the controversial video of her song ‘Like a Prayer’ in 1989 and more recently with an on-stage dedication of ‘Like A Virgin’ to the Pope last year.
The impending concert has created a wave of protest in the Catholic nation with Parliamentarian Marian Brudzynski saying,”The concert of a highly perverse singer who calls herself ‘Madonna’ is deeply humiliating to Warsaw residents and Poles in general.”
The fact that the 50-year-old star is a follower of the Jewish cult ‘Kabbalah’ has added fuel to the fire.
