File this under Lost Causes: The Catholic League is calling on the NFL to ban Madonna from performing at the Super Bowl, which she recently agreed to do.
Bill Donohue wrote to the NFL, saying they "would do well to drop any plans it may have about having Madonna perform during the Super Bowl." Why?
Because in 2004, the NFL invited 'N Sync's JC Chasez to sing during the halftime of the Pro Bowl, only to rescind the offer due to some suggestive lyrics.
That was JC Chasez. This is Madonna.
"The NFL cannot expect Catholics to be treated any different," the group writes. "For decades, Madonna has blatantly offended Christians, especially Catholics."
"Her offensive lyrics, lewd behavior and misappropriation of sacred symbols are reason enough. Worse, Madonna has repeatedly ridiculed the heart and soul of Christianity: Jesus, Our Blessed Mother, the Eucharist and the Crucifixion."
She also hates hydrangeas. Don't forget that.
