Madonna Is No Savior

I just came across an interesting article at MSN News. The opening paragraph said the following:
Madonna wants the media to leave Britney Spears alone. "They need to step off," she told the "Yo on E!" satellite radio show. "For real ... Let's go save her."
I agree with Madonna with regard to the media. However, in spite of Madonna's religious-sounding name, I've got news for her. She is incapable of "saving" Britney Spears, or anyone else for that matter. Only Jesus Christ can do that.

Then again, Madonna seems to think that she and Jesus are very much alike, judging by her stage act of a year or two ago, when she hung from a glittery cross, in a move which left many committed Christians feeling offended, appalled and outraged.

I guess that's what happens when a person such as Madonna is the recipient of undeserved adulation. Such a person sometimes develops an ego as large as the legendary Jumbo the Elephant. On other occasions, such a person becomes as much of a dysfunctional train wreck as Britney Spears has become. Sometimes both phenomena can be seen in the same person.

It seems to me that Britney and Madonna are both equally in need of salvation. But then again, the same thing could be said about you and me.
