Man, that Kabbalah Center must be some cool place for kids. I’ve never seen children so happy to be attending a meeting at a radical religious organization. When I was a kid my mom took my brothers and I to a church ran by the Salvation Army in the Bronx, NY.

Talk about oppression.

The rigid nuns who ran the church considered logical reasoning and free thinking to be tools of the devil. Within no time I was booted out of Sunday school and asked never to return. My mom eventually found a new church home for us where questions were encouraged in Sunday school.

Maybe Kabbalah is the same way. They’re doing something right in there ’cause Madonna’s kids look downright giddy – like they’re going to Disney World. I wonder how much of Madonna’s finances is tied up in the Kabbalah. Can anyone just walk in off the street and attend whether they have money or not?
