David Koresh was a crazed Madonna super-fan... who dreamed of killing her



David Koresh claimed that God promised to "give" him Madonna.


The Branch Davidian leader, who died after a 51 day siege at the cult's HQ in Waco, Texas, is the subject of a new Netflix documentary - but there's a lot more weird trivia about the Jesus-loving guitarist not included on the show.


According to LitHub, a former cult member revealed that Koresh was obsessed with Madonna - and even told his army of followers that God had promised her to him in a dream.


The site quotes one of the cult members as recalling: "He also loved MTV, 'especially if Madonna was on,' [David] Thibodeau recalled. Koresh believed that after his preaching made him famous, his favorite pop star would join his harem at Mount Carmel. He claimed God had spoken to him in a dream, saying, “'I will give thee Madonna'."


In 1993, shortly after his April 19th death, The Houston Chronicle reported that Koresh talked about killing the Vogue star.


The paper cited a report by ex-members which stated: "former cultists said Koresh's fixation on Madonna ranged from a passing obsession to a desire to kill her, and that he had vague plans to assassinate an unnamed 'high ranking' politician."


The Washington Post spoke to another Branch Davidian escapee, Robert Scott, who shared a vivid description of live at the compound - and mentioned Madge.


They wrote: "Another former member, Robert Scott, recalled the marathon Bible study sessions he attended in Waco in 1989, where cult members -- including himself -- sat spellbound hour after hour listening to Koresh's rambling doomsday interpretations of the Scriptures.


"'It's not just that he was enthralling. It's that everyone else was enthralled, and that made you feel that he must be special, that his message was Divine,' he said.


"Scott likened the nightly Bible study sessions to a roller-coaster ride, with Koresh racing through the New Testament at breakneck speed, interspersing rapid-fire rhetorical questions one after another.


"Then, Scott said, Koresh might abruptly launch into a disjointed monologue about what he said was the dyslexia he suffered as a youth or about his frustration over not being able to lure pop idol Madonna to Mount Carmel."
