Lady Gaga vs. The Catholic League

Via Today Show:

Lady Gaga’s best friend is controversy, so on some level the latest should come as no surprise.

In “Judas,” Gaga’s new single and video (which is expected to debut Tuesday), Gaga sings from Mary Magdalene’s perspective, with lyrics such as, “When he comes to me, I am ready/ I’ll wash his feet with my hair if he needs/ Forgive him when his tongue lies through his brain/ Even after three times, he betrays me/ I’ll bring him down, a king with no crown …”

The Catholic League President Bill Donohue issued a statement calling the singer out, saying, “This is a stunt … Lady Gaga tries to continue to shock Catholics and Christians in general: she dresses as a nun … she swallows the rosary. She has now morphed into a caricature of herself.”. . .

I guess Donohue has to comment, but at some point shouldn't we just ignore her and her ilk? - Greg Pollowitz
