"We're all in a cult," Madonna says.
"In this cult we're not encouraged to ask questions.
And if we do ask questions,

"It's that old cliché," Madonna explains, "when the world gets you down, you need to be lifted up. Look at the state of the world. People need to be inspired and happy.

"I find it very strange that it's so disturbing to people," she continues.
