In a battle of Madonna versus Jesus, NBC has taken the side of everyone's favorite savior.

Under pressure by advertisers, the network finally convinced the controversial star to cut a crucifixion scene from an upcoming concert special.

Mel Gibson celebrated the triumph of Catholic values with a beer.

During the song "Live to Tell," Madonna is shown on a mirrored cross wearing a crown of thorns, a visual statement meant, she's maintained, to illustrate a theme of confession. Shockingly, not everyone saw it that way.

Therefore, NBC has little choice but to censor the concert more than a nude Nicky Hilton model shoot.

So tune in November 22 and see what stunts the Material Girl was allowed to broadcast. Also, don't expect NBC to ever air the Screech sex tape.
