Pop queen Madonna has no time for religious doctrines which discourage people from questioning their beliefs, because she has always sought her own unique path through life.

The LIKE A VIRGIN singer, who is now a devout follower of Jewish mystic writings the Kabbalah, was raised in a Catholic household.

But Madonna refused to adhere to her home's Christian values because she could see no meaning behind the strict religious rules.

The 47-year-old singer says, "The rules didn't make sense. The rules didn't give any answers, so I was being rebellious for no particular reason.

"I reject the attitude of any religious organisation that does not encourage you to ask questions and do your own exploration."
