Controversy Over Madonna's Bible Quote

January 12, 1991

Madonna made an incredibly naive statement when she said that because the passage is in the Bible there is nothing wrong with her using it. Obviously, Madonna has never seriously read the Bible, as she'd be well aware that it is filled with hate, bigotry, cruelty, blasphemy, prejudice and vulgarity and not mere peace and love.

Now that Madonna has "justified her love" it is high time that she either justify her words or make a formal apology, as the lyrics are clearly irresponsible and could easily fuel anti-Semitic acts.
