Madonna is no stranger to Christian backlash but her recent pole dancing on a cross and blasphemous lyrics has some calling her down right "satanic".

During her performance for the song "Holy Water" she compares her bodily fluids to what Catholics regularly use to bless themselves. "Don't it taste like holy water (Yeezus loves my ***** best)" she sings while her dancers adorn their heads with nun clothing and she pole dances on a cross.

When the striking footage hit the web immediately many took to social media to share their disapproval.

"I love madonna and her music but this particular performance of holy water crossed the line. Literally Madonna is Lucifer mocking Jesus and the Holy Spirit," one supporter said.

Another added, "I find it so ironic, hypocritical and dumb-founding how she preaches about being respectful, accepting and thoughtful towards people's race, sexuality, religion and color... yet completely does the opposite of that as an artist disrespecting and mocking millions of people's religion,"

The pop diva has often defended her controversial actions by saying that it is an expression of art but people say it is deliberately demonic.

"Madonna fans (if you haven't figured this woman out by now)... her work (she calls it "art" and "freedom of expression" and "pushing peoples' buttons") is satanic," someone else noted.

Just this year in 2015 Madonna's Grammy performance was pegged as another on-camera "satanic ritual" by Illuminati conspiracy theorists. Her catalogue of work throughout the years has always contained religious imagery and continues to do so.

The 1989's hit single "Like A Prayer" was condemned by the Vatican for its disrespectful scenes in the church. Madonna was not put off at all though and as seen in her 'Rebel Heart Tour' she has maintained her methods to promote herself and her music. In the past she also emerged out of the stage on a mirrored cross while wearing a crown of thorns.

Madonna was raised Catholic and was later excommunicated from the church. In her latest Rolling Stone interview she says she regularly uses Christian imagery because of her strong connection to the Catholicism.

"I always feel some kind of inexplicable connection with Catholicism. It kind of shows up in all of my work, as you may have noticed," she told Rolling Stone.

Do you believe Madonna is deliberately attacking Christianity under satanic influence or is it just a form of artistic expression?
