More evidence that exorcism is trendy. Not news: the Catholic Church does not like Madonna.
Now her music and shows will come under the scrutiny of priests trained in the art of defeating demons, treating satanic possession and looking for the devil in a section of the conference dedicated to finding evil in popular culture.
“Part of the conference is dedicated to the hidden subliminal message in communication, and the choice of this subject was inspired by the woman who dares to call herself Madonna,” said Father Andrzej Grefkowic, an exorcist and one of the organisers of the conference. “We’ve been worried about her concerts.”
Father Grefkowic also warned of a growing risk from Satan, highlighting the increasing popularity of tattoos, body piercing, horoscopes and magic shows as ways evil could corrupt people.
This is not the first time Madonna has been put under the spotlight by the Catholic Church. They rallied against her back in the 80s and 90s for her sexually-laden concert shows, promoting promiscuity and anti-religion.
The Polish conference will also take a look at subliminal messaging, something that has no real evidence of working or even being a legit thing. Silly. Let’s get with the program. None of these songs are popular anymore. Show me some evidence that Satanism is running rampant let alone attributable to Madonna. It’s ridiculous, out of touch notions like this that make us laugh at any opinion from religion. It may be faith-based but it’s moldy-oldy thinking.
