Women's March On Washington

Last week, pop icon Madonna made headlines with her profanity-laced address at the Women's March on Washington. Screaming “F**k you!” at opponents of the cause, she admitted that she had “thought often about blowing up the White House.”

And while many thought that the Material Girl ought to be arrested:

And at least one radio station banned her music in the name of patriotism:

The pro-lifers who attended the following weekend's March for Life took a different approach: prayer.

They prayed for the Supreme Court:

And they prayed for each other:

Several even offered up a prayer for Madonna — the very woman who had verbally attacked them from a national platform just one week earlier.

NY Mag reported:

Speaking to the crowd, author and radio host Eric Metaxas implored the marchers to pray for the singer’s salvation. Calling himself “outraged” by remarks Madonna had made about how she had considered “blowing up the White House” after Trump’s election, he decided to channel his anger into a shared moment of prayer:

Yes, I have not thought a lot about blowing up Madonna’s house. And the reason is because the Lord I follow commands me to love my enemies. Because I and many of us here are Jesus freaks — we follow the Lord of life. I would like you to join me right now in praying for Madonna — Madonna, Jesus loves you. And we’re going to pray that his love be revealed to you and everyone who was at the Women’s March.

We can only assume that this wasn't really the kind of prayer Madonna had in mind.
