According to a new poll by Bookfinder.com, the Material Girl's shockingly explicit coffee table picture book is still proving popular.

Find: Why did 'Sex' cause controversy?

The limited-edition release caused outrage in 1992 and featured the singer in a series of pornographic poses with rapper Vanilla Ice and Naomi Campbell.

Next on the most wanted list is Nora Roberts' "Promise Me Tomorrow," followed by two Stephen King releases, "Rage" and "My Pretty Pony."

Also in the top 10 are Johnny Cash's "Man In Black," a Marilyn Monroe biography by Norman Mailer, and Kyle Onstott's "Mandingo."

  I read a lot of the posts and most of them are trashing Madonna and the book. One post goes as far as accusing her of corrupting children and quoting the bible. First, do you have the book and allow your children to see it and if not, how did the kids see it? Second, since when as Americans did we start putting people down for expressing themselves. I for one don't agree with everything Madonna has done but that doesn't mean I have to put her down for it. When you go to a gallery or museum do you like everything that's displayed, probably not. It's art people, like it or not that's all it is.

I have a life. It is the eternal life given to me through the Lord Jesus Christ by His death on Calvary.

On June 5th, 2005, Madonna & I showed up on the exact same street corner on 5th Avenue in New York City at the exact same moment. I was living in California at the time and Madonna was living in England, so I knew it was meant to be. I sang a song telling her off. Five months later, she released a new CD and the 5th song was "I Love New York" in which she told me off. The first song on the CD was "Hung Up" in which she says "waiting for your call every night and day, I'm hung up, I'm hung up on you." I then learned that she had an 800 number to call and I called her there in 2007.

I'm sure you don't know about the contingencies of existence and the contingencies of death: Chance cannot be the source of order. Order requires a directive mind. Higher intelligence exists. Order requires that there be finality, a final outcome. Today, August 28, is the day on the religious calendar of St. Augustine who taught me these things. You need to read "City of God" to be able to figure it out, until then it will not make sense to you.

I wish she would have ignored me, but she wrote the song "I Love New York" all about our incident on 5th Avenue. I could sue her for $ millions but since I work for Jesus Christ and our Blessed Mother, the Immaculate Mary, I don't.

As fate would have it, I'm up following Hurricane Irene as it storms up the East Coast and praying for all people in it's path and this story is on the web, three weeks after I sent Madonna's father a letter which mentioned this book.

Anything else you care to know?

P.S. I'm working for the salvation of the world and the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God on earth. Maybe you have something more important to do, but I don't.
