whatever happened to kabbalah?

the ancient religion, passed down through thousands of years of religious scholarship?

adopted by madonna, and her family by proxy, it was trendily passed along to the likes of britney spears, lindsay lohan and paris hilton who were all, at one time or other, seen sporting the red string around their wrist as a sign of their true learning of the mysticism.

ashton kutcher and rocco ritchie followed the rites, possibly only as followers to their wife and mother, respectively. we all remember the photos of ashton in white, rocco with long hair.

what the heck happened? have celebrities turned even an ancient religion trendy? has kabbalah HAD it's 15 minutes of fame? after being in existence for thousands of years? the shallow celebrities have turned it into a mockery, amongst outdated fashions like bubble skirts and zip-ankle jeans.

for shame, for shame.

Madonna makes me sick. Remember when she was a Hindu? I guess the big thing in Hollywod is Scientology. They never seem to stray from that, do they?

Remember when religion was about worshipping your god? haha Or am I just kidding myself.

Is that the one that involves chanting? I am rebelling against all religions at the moment. Maybe I should look into Kabbalah.
I told my hus we should try being Wiccan because we worship nature so much. He said only if they change the name.

I agree with beenzzz, Scientology seems to be the rage in Hollywood at the moment...has been for a while. Madonna seems to think that every time she brings out a new album she needs a new religion to go with it.

I'll tell you what happened. They made KABBALAH water and packaged it like Red bull. Then people got bored.

Anything to do with Madonna makes me want to wretch!

I agree with Beenzzz on the Scientology thing.

Don't worry, I am sure Tom Cruise and his crew are all over it!

Excellent question. Wasn't there something about your name having some deep meaning? I'm rather glad it's gone to be honest.

Not sure what happened to those religions...but I know most of these people have went down the wrong paths recently....

I think the next Hollywood A-list religious movement should be Snake Handling.

I do not like her and I agree with Lotus every time she brings out a new album she needs to adopt a new religion.

Stay Beautiful..!!

agreed...I was thinking about kaballah recently too...and how it got out-shined by scientology.
you know ashton kutcher & lindsay lohan were banging their heads against a wall muttering, "we should have picked THAT one!"
