Earlier this week, Red State‘s Alex Parker wrote about how left-wing pop star Madonna has a game plan for convincing the Pope that he and the Catholic Church are wrong about abortion.


Here’s a brief recap of what the pro-choice “Material Girl” singer had to say in a recent interview:

Madonna revealed she would like a meeting with Pope Francis in a wide-ranging interview with Andrew Denton, which aired on Tuesday night.

In a candid episode of Andrew Denton’s Interview, the 60-year-old told the Australian journalist that she’d be interested in sitting down with the head of the Catholic Church at the Vatican to discuss what Jesus thought about women’s rights.

If she had a chance to speak to the pope, Madonna said she’d ask: ‘Let’s talk about Jesus’ point of view about women. Let’s talk about it.’

‘What do you really think he thought of women? And don’t you think Jesus would agree that a woman has the right to choose what to do with her body?’

While what she said during the interview certainly got people’s attention, something else from the interview also got people talking : Her eye patch:


This prompted Texan News writer Holly Hansen to ask a very important question:

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX-2) saw the tweet, and humorously responded:

The reason Madonna is wearing the eye patch is not due to any type of medical issue. She’s wearing it as a fashion statement which, according to Yahoo News, “is part of the Madame X persona she created for [her new] album.”

Crenshaw is a former Navy SEAL who lost his right eye after an IED explosion in Afghanistan in 2012.

The freshman Congressman has not been shy about talking about his eye patch and the glass eye he wears since being elected to the House.

He tweeted this picture of a new eye patch he debuted at the State of the Union back in February:


Perhaps the biggest high-profile moment where his eye patch took center stage was in March, when he took it off to show “Captain America” star Chris Evans what was underneath it:

“A VERY cool use of vibranium,” Evans tweeted back to him.

As to the question of who wore their eye patches better – Madonna or Crenshaw – I think there is a very clear winner here, but we’ll leave it up to the readers to decide.
