SINGAPORE (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – If it were up to a Roman Catholic archbishop, people should go to church instead of attending Madonna’s Sunday concert in Singapore.
Archbishop William Goh reminded Catholics that it was their “moral obligation not to support those who denigrate and insult religions, including anti-Christian and immoral values promoted by the secular world”.
“There is no neutrality in faith; one is either for or against. Being present (at these events) in itself is a counter witness. Obedience to God and His commandments must come before the arts,” he said in a statement issued by his office on Saturday.
Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour, which has an R18 rating here, has been altered slightly for the Singapore audience, with religiously-sensitive content removed.
However, The Adobo Chronicles
can confirm that the rumor that Madonna is changing her name to Lucifera (female for Lucifer) just for the Singapore concert is just that — a rumor.
The queen of pop will hold two concerts in Manila this week before flying to Singapore.
