Specializing in suggestive costumes and outraging moral traditionalists, Madonna became the biggest female star in popular music as an outspoken champion of self-expression through uninhibited sexuality. Now the erstwhile Material Girl is a 47-year-old mother of two, children’s book author and devotee of Jewish mysticism. The new Madonna preaches an approximation of old-time morality centered around monogamy, distrust of popular culture and firm parental discipline. At times, the new Madonna sounds almost like a … social conservative. Skeptical? Then tell us: Who made the statements below? Three are from Madonna, and the others are from traditionalist stalwarts Michelle Malkin and James Dobson. (Answers at bottom.)

1. “My kids don’t watch TV. We have televisions, but they’re not hooked up to anything but movies. TV is trash. I was raised without it.”

2. “Parents who are concerned about ‘privacy’ ought to think about protecting their kids before they walk out the door half-naked.”

3. “I’m convinced the human spirit craves this kind of unconditional love and experiences something akin to ‘soul hunger’ when it cannot be achieved. I’m also certain that most couples expect to find intimacy in marriage, but somehow it usually eludes them.”

4. “The best thing to do is find one person in your life and try to love them unconditionally. If you’ve accomplished that, you’ve accomplished a lot.”

5. “It’s not easy having a good marriage, but I don’t want it easy. I thank God every day that I married a man who made me think. That’s my definition of true love.”
