Madonna is fond of controversy, and she knows how to stir it up pretty well. Now, the "material girl" has posted a photo of a (presumably) gay Jewish man and a gay Muslim man about to kiss on Instagram.
From The New Civil Rights Movement:
Jewish news agency JTA describes the image as showing "a Jewish man with side curls and wearing a large white knitted kippah of the Breslover Hasidic movement and an Arab man wearing a traditional Arab keffiyeh."
Regardless, the Material Girl knows how to spark controversy, discussion, and debate, and what a great way to do it.
For millennia the Middle East has been a war zone of intellectual, spiritual, and physical battles between Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, and their adherents, followers, and advocates.
For millennia, and increasingly, homosexuality has been part of this debate.
Commenters on the image took all sides, but seemed overwhelmingly positive.
The responses have been mixed, but mostly positive. I think it's wonderful and sweet myself.
And, check out this video.
