A religious group called Biblemode Youth Philippines is leading a campaign to have Lady Gaga’s concerts banned in the Philippines. It said it will start a prayer vigil on Saturday until Lady Gaga arrives in Manila for her two-night concert on May 21 and 22 at the SM Arena.
They are calling Lady Gaga the “anti-Christ,” the group criticized Gaga for her skimpy costumes and provocative songs, such as “Judas,” which the group said is a direct insult to Jesus Christ.
“The way she uses imagery and lyrics is directly against the teachings of the Lord, ” says Pastor Reyzel Cayanan of Biblemode Youth.
Renen de Guia of Ovation Productions Inc., the promoter of Lady Gaga’s concerts in Manila, quickly dismissed the group’s claim that the artist is the anti-Christ.
“There is no truth that Lady Gaga is anti-Christ. Artists constantly reinvent themselves and want to be controversial,”says de Guia.
People would do anything for fame and popularity….plus the fortune as a bonus.
