Hurricane Gaga to "damage youth" of SA?

08 November 2012, 10:08

It seems that the South African Council of Churches has become "worried about the 'destructive impact' Lady Gaga can have on South Africa's youth", and are now planning to petition against her entry into South Africa. Accusing someone who is open and forthright in their artistic expression, such as Lady Gaga, of being Satanic, is just ridiculous. Has everyone forgotten that she is a Catholic? And never mind the fact that she just pledged $1 Million to the American Red Cross to help with the relief efforts after hurricane Sandy?


Besides that, in Cape Town and Johannesburg alike, our youth are continually exposed to HIV/Aids, corruption, rape, murder, robbery, racism, xenophobia, and the like. What on EARTH can Lady Gaga “impact” upon South Africa's youth, that they have not already been exposed too?


As for the “satanism argument”, these over-religious clerics have conveniently ignored the fact that Satanic rituals are not unheard of in this country, and since long before Lady Gaga even became a pop-star. If her music contains religious connotations, why would she be Satanic? Or maybe it is all some huge elaborate cover-theme, and she is actually a member of the Illuminati? The SACC should be more receptive to what is known, rather than about what is being said.


To deprive the youth of her dramatic expression in style and music, would just be an exercise in futility. People are not going to like her less if she doesn’t come, so why deprive our tourism and entertainment sector and economy by not allowing her to perform here?
