Madonna still manages to upset Catholics... even at a Purim Party

From World Jewish Congress site

Madonna and Ritchie under fire for Purim dresses

Madonna and her husband, the filmmaker Guy Ritchie, have infuriated Catholic leaders by attending a party dressed as a nun and the Pope respectively, at a time when Pope John Paul II is becoming increasingly frail. Madonna and Ritchie were attending a Cabbala bash in London to celebrate the Jewish holiday Purim. The president of the Catholic League in the United States, William Donahue, said: "It just goes to show you what a moral slug this man is, that he would get dressed up as the Pope at a time like this. We're quite disappointed. We Catholics thought we had finally gotten rid of the witch when she [Madonna] discovered Cabbala." However, Madonna's publicist said that "No disrespect was intended".
