  • Filipino Bishop Advised People to Stay Away From Madonna as Her Music Is “Suggestive” And “Vulgar”

A Catholic bishop opposed Madonna’s concerts in the Philippines by labeling them as anti-religious.

57 year old Madonna is on her world tour these days. She will be performing in the Philippines this week. A Roman Catholic Bishop in the Philippines suggested on Wednesday that people should stay away from Madonna’s concert. He said that her music was “suggestive” and her clothes were mostly “vulgar” during her concert.

Madonna is promoting her 13th music album “Rebel Heart”. Her songs include lyrics that are her trademark and her performance will be sexually charged as well. She will be performing on Wednesday and Thursday in the Philippines. 

Ramon Arguelles, who is an archbishop said that all the God-loving people should avoid sins and the places where sinful activities occur.

Roman Catholics are a major part of the Philippines population making up to 80 percent of the total citizenry. They have a strong influence on the laws of the nation including divorce and same-sex marriages. 

Madonna’s concert and tour has been labeled as R18 rating and of “sexual references” by Singapore’s Media Development Authority. She also used many religious symbols in her previous songs which were found to be offensive by many Catholics along with people of other religions.

According to Reuters, Ramon also said that “Madonna” is not even her real name and she is using it just to taunt Mother Mary. 

However, no comments regarding this issue were released by Madonna or her manager. She is coping well with the situation. She will perform at Mall of Asia Arena on 24th and 25th February.

She is having a great time and even surprised her fans by visiting orphans in a local orphanage. She posted her pictures on Instagram in which she’s seen sitting with street children and orphans in her surprise visit.

Arguelles also opposed the concert of Lady Gaga that was held in 2012. He also declared this concert to be a work of Satan.

William Goh who is another Singapore archbishop said on archdiocese website that it is the moral duty of people to not support the ones who have anti-Christian values and those who spread immoral values.
