Entertainer Madonna Creates Negative Stereotypes of Christians at Current World Tour

Anti-gay protesters are shown just before Madonna’s face morphs into that of the pope; at the point where the pope’s face appears, protesters are shown to hold gay-bashing signs up. The accompanying lyrics, which include the refrain, “Won’t let a stranger give me a social disease,” ties the pope to hate speech directed at homosexuals. Moreover, photos of gay youths who recently committed suicide are also shown during this sequence, suggested that Christianity drove them into suicide. This sadly creates negative stereotypes and prejudices against Christians.
