Music pop icon Madonna says, don't worry, the Kabbalah Center is not a cult...
In an interview to the New York Daily News, pop singer and Kabbalah devotee Madonna defended her interest in the teachings of the Kabbalah, and said she was angry people found it to be so disturbing.
"It would be less controversial if I joined the Nazi Party," Madonna said.
Madonna's increasing pursuit of Kabbalah has inspired much hostility toward her, which the singer found hard to explain.
"'What do you mean you study the Torah if you're not Jewish?'" she asked rhetorically. "'What do you mean you pray to God and wear sexy clothes? We don't understand this.' It frightens people. So they try to denigrate it or trivialize it so that it makes more sense," Madonna said.
Sorry Madonna, we do understand this, it's called a fraud. Everyone is welcome to study the Torah and learn. But even if you dress up a pig, it's still not a cow and it's not kosher.
I've actually had some e-chats with some people that have attended Kabbalah Centre events with Madonna in attendance. Being the superstar and huge donor, naturally she's treated like a princess and honored guest at all occasions. Word is the dedicated volunteers are not treated very well.
