Britney Spears has had her Kabbalah tattoo removed.
The ‘Toxic’ star had a Hebrew tattoo on the back of her neck bearing one of the 72 words for ‘God’ found in the texts of Kabbalah, a mystical off-shoot of Judaism.
However, when the 26-year-old singer was spotted out shopping in Los Angeles earlier this week, it was clear she has had the tattoo removed. (SOURCE)
Don’t take this as a sign of the end times or a new direction for Per Christum. Britney watching will not become a sport here… Before today I wasn’t sure if she spelled her name with an “e” or an “a”… (And no worries, I can’t tell Lindsay Lohan and Hillary Duff apart… My roommate ran into Jessica Simpson today – in town for a wedding – and all I could say was “How did you know which one she was?” Apparently “She’s the hot one,” and she is “shorter than you would think,” I digress…)
At any rate, did it ever occur to Britney that when getting involved in Jewish spirituality and mysticism that getting a tattoo in Hebrew for the name of God is tacky to begin with… but the general Jewish consensus on tattoos since the forced tattooing of Holocaust victims in the Nazi Concentration Camps made it doubly inappropriate?
No, probably not. In Hollywood trendy is trendy.
Prayers for Miss Spears… May we hope this is that much less of the influence of the cult of the trendy? We are of course obligated to pray that she become involved with the religion of the original Madonna. Let’s do.
