Christians threaten Madonna over "Terror Bride" costume...wait, what?

Actually it is Islam that threatens Madonna, and for that she has backed down...for now.

It is ironic that Madonna would back down in the face of possible Qur'anic violence, when she herself has spent years demeaning Catholicism.  I guess she never was threatened by Catholics, eh?

Madonna - Madonna backs down from wearing Muslim bridal dress

Madonna has decided against wearing a Muslim bridal dress in her new music video over fears for her safety.

The 54-year-old singer was planning to don a 'Terror Bride' outfit - a combination of a traditional Iraqi bridal veil and a US soldier's uniform - in the video for upcoming single 'Superstar' as a statement against oppression against women and war, but her advisers convinced her to ditch the political stunt because of the outrage it would be likely to cause.

A source said: ''Madonna had the outfit ready to go. She was really proud of it and said it was her 'Terror Bride' costume.

''She had paraded around in it and said she was going to wear it in her next music video.

''At first when people started telling her it was madness she just brushed it off.

''But when they mentioned that her actions could put her life at risk she decided to ditch it from her video and certainly won't be wearing it on stage.''

I wonder if there was an explanation of the doctrine accompanying the caution.  Probably not, as that would be "Islamophobic"

The 'Celebration' hitmaker - who is a devotee of Jewish offshoot religion Kabbalah - had already tried the costume on, and while she is said to be ''really disappointed'' about not wearing the outfit, she hasn't ruled out donning the attire in a music video at some point in the future.

Bummer that this story doesn't say why the life of Maddonna might be at risk.

If somebody told me my life were at risk, it would be meaningless unless I was offered an explanation.

Why are these people so afraid?

I smell a big fat elephant in the room...
