I think you lost them at "if" ...

(From a NYTimes article about NBC contemplating airing a concert in which Madonna mimicks the Crucifixion with herself the victim.)

Madonna also issued a statement on Thursday saying that the performance was “neither anti-Christian, sacrilegious or blasphemous.”

“Rather,” it went on to say, “it is my plea to the audience to encourage mankind to help one another and see the world as a unified whole. I believe in my heart that if Jesus were alive today, he would be doing the same thing.”

(picture: Madonna confers with Jesus at a popular watering hole.)

    Madonna's latest rationalizations aside, I'm having a little trouble believing that even if Jesus were alive today, the guy who made the point about the separation of God and commerce to the point of (the only known incidence of) violence (in his life) would be mounting himself on mirrored implements of torture for fun and (mostly) profit...

    (Make that "religiously significant and sacred to some faith mirrored implements of torture". But you knew what I meant.)

    IF? IF? Again with the IF?

    How about "... if Jesus were down here walking around on earth ..."
