In yet another
harbinger of what we can expect from the New World Order, a group of
Benedictine nuns has lost the right use the name Madonna Rehabilitation
Hospital on its Internet site.
Rock-star "Madonna" Owns the Word
Says New World Order
by Christopher A. Ferrara
service recently reported (Nov. 8, 2000) that Louise Veronica Ciccone, better
known as the pop-singer Madonna, objected to the Internet site, claiming that
it infringed her exclusive right to use the name Madonna. The World
Intellectual Property Organization heard her complaint and decided in
Zenit, a hospital representative declared that What has happened is not
very Catholic. This would have to qualify as the understatement of the
decade. A woman who has built her career on blaspheming the true Madonna now
owns Her name for Internet purposes.
did a quick check of the Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals former website
and received the message access refused. Looks like
Madonnas lawyers have done their job. But this affair is even
more sickening. According to StatePaper.com, a Nebraska online journal (August
23, 2000), the internet domain name madonna.com was also owned by Internet
pornographer Dan Parisi, and Madonna wanted him to stop using
her name as well. Parisi, rather than giving in to Madonnas
lawyers, offered to donate the domain name to the Benedictine hospital.
spokesman told StatePaper.com that We would accept the domain name from
Mr. Parisi, but we do not want to be involved in any disputes between him and
Madonna the rock star. Madonnas lawyers have indeed threatened
to sue Madonna the hospital if the hospital takes ownership of
madonna.com. from Parisi. Anyway, the whole dispute ended up with the
World Intellectual Property Organization, and the Benedictines lost the right
to name their hospital after the Mother of God.
Intellectual Property Organization is a United Nations agency based in Geneva,
Switzerland. WIPO was not persuaded by the argument that the singer Madonna
was named after the Virgin Mary as was her mother and hundreds of
thousands of other people throughout the world over the past 2,000 years. We do
not believe that because Ms. Ciccone named her act after the Virgin Mary that
gives her the right to stop any other party from using the word
madonna as a title of their website. That makes perfect
sense. But dont look for common sense or justice in the tribunals of the
New World Order.
This is just one
small example of why the Vatican should have nothing to do with the United
Nations or any of its organs. You cannot get good fruit from a bad tree. Nor
will the Vatican ever accomplish anything by sending its diplomats to the Tower
of Babel on the Hudson in order to try their hand at pruning the rotten twigs.
