Like a Virgin Birth

Current Mood: Cross

According to the Independent, and their survey on visible expressions of religious belief, 23 year old Kerlisha Allan tells us that she has been "wearing this cross long before Madonna made them fashionable." As far as I can recall this would be 'long before' 1984, 22 years ago. So even if Miss Allan was proudly wearing her crucifix in the womb she can't have had more than a two year head start on Madonna.

This all reminds me of the latest holy moley Madonna and child saga. That particular Immaculate Conception* seems shrouded in mystery, half-truths & rumours, much like the previous one. Did she, didn't she, will she, won't she? Yes she did, or will, or won't, depending on politics/money/emotions/fame/take your pick. Surely it would have been easier to just sponsor an African child, rather than adopt it. It's cheaper and you don't end up with a bloody poo machine screaming in your face at the end of it.

*I just did a bit of research and found out that in Catholic dogma the Immaculate Conception refers to Mary's conception, not Jesus'. What I obviously mean is the Annunciation and Virgin Birth, but I don't because that's not what happened here, unless it did and we are all witnessing the second coming, ooh.

Do you mean you are feeling cross, or that you have feelings about crosses?
