Epatering les bourgeoisie yet again

I saw this headline on Drudge:

MADONNA WARNS: ALL WILL GO TO HELL IF DON'T TURN FROM WICKED BEHAVIOR; 'MOST PRIESTS ARE GAY'

And I thought it must be a new message from Bayside, or something. Because we've all spent the last 20 years separating "Madonna" from "THE Madonna", right? But, no, it's the one who bore a son named Rocco, not Jesus:

The former Material Girl now believes "the beast is the modern world that we live in!"

"The material world. The physical world. The world of illusion, that we think is real. We live for it, we're enslaved by it. And it will ultimately be our undoing," Madonna explains in her new documentary film, I'M GOING TO TELL YOU A SECRET.

In the movie, which will premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City on Tuesday, Madonna warns how people "are going to go to hell, if they don't turn from their wicked behavior."

The singer, who is also promoting the upcoming release of her new music CD, declares: "Most priests are gay."

"I refer to an entity called 'The Beast'. I feel I am describing the world that we live in right now. To me 'The Beast' is the modern world that we live in."
What??? Is this, um, "kosher" for that red-string modernist-Kabbalah stuff she's been doing? I mean, it's not like she says, "Priests having gay sex is bad," and the truth is more that a small, but visible, minority of priests are gay, or seem homosexual or just effeminate. And then there's that whole "the world of illusion, that we think is real" - well, that's not Christian philosophy, so I suppose we're not looking at a re-conversion experience here. I guess after the last few stunts (becoming British, becoming "Jewish", becoming a children's book author), she had to find some way to get back in the spotlight. This is shocking enough, while being vague enough . . .
