The Vatican is wasting its time and giving her all the attention she wants. This is a great advertisement for her tour. The religious leaders are acting like a bunch of idiots, which, frankly, doesn't exactly shock me.

She's just trying to revive a flagging career. Been out of the spotlight too long. Really, I don't see what she has to worry about...it's not like Britney is giving her any musical competition these days....

No. That's not an excommunicable sin. She's barred from the sacraments because of her re-marriage as a divorcee rather than her divorce per se. I know if I did that I would be told not to communicate, but since I haven't I'm still taking Eucharist. This whole thing is so stupid.

I agree.. and as a Catholic I think they have better things to worry about

Well bugger Jesus with a Pitchfork I am sure that this will put Christendom in flames just like the Mohammed Cartoons.

Is this how religion should be?

I know, why waste time on Madonna when there are all sorts of problems within the Church?

Only one person, Cardinal Ersilio Tonino, has suggested that she be excommunicated - and that as part of a personal expression of disapproval for Madonna's act. It didn't appear that any official action has been considered.

She's not Catholic. She was raised Catholic. Quite a difference.

No, they won't waste their time on her.

What is the difference? I know plenty of people who were raised Catholic and consider themselves a Catholic. Is there anything specific that must take place to make it "official"?

No. There's the old saying "once a Catholic, always a Catholic". Officially, since she's divorced and re-married, she can't get sacraments. But something tells me Madonna doesn't give a damn about sacraments.

How is she "not Catholic"? Is it based on her unwillingness to follow Church doctrine?
