The daughter of Lucifer, otherwise known as Lady Gaga, has landed.
The Council of Churches are probably deep in prayer – at least those who are not watching Dallas, CSI reruns or Clifton Shores. Those that are not praying for the souls of our youth are probably painting their protest posters.
The Council of Churches are objecting to the Lady Gaga concerts in Johannesburg and Cape Town on the basis that Lady Gaga promotes Satanism amongst our youth. I typed: “Is Lady Gaga a Satanist?” in the interweb bible (i.e. Google). This, like randomly flipping through the collected works of the Divine Creator, yielded some interesting results. The most interesting result was this one (just a word of warning – follow this link at your own peril – the brilliance of the thought process displayed by the writer is remarkable and will either leave you in stitches or convert you into a Lady Gaga fan):
Another article claimed that Lady Gaga checked out of a hotel in London and left behind a bath filled with blood. The article then concludes that the only explanation for this is that Lady Gaga had participated in a satanic ritual. Again, the logic is astounding. Has it occurred to anyone that she uses a dress made out of meat in her shows? Presumably, she does not keep the fresh meat overnight in her wardrobe?
Anyhow, if we accept for a moment, hypothetically speaking, that Lady Gaga is indeed a Satanist, then it follows that the Council of Churches are entitled to be less than Gaga about Lady Gaga corrupting our susceptible youth.
The thing that I do not understand is why the Council did not act in similar fashion against other artists and celebrities of non-Christian persuasion who have visited our shores. Why are they picking on the Satanists and not the scientologists, the Buddhists, the Muslims, the Hindus, etc? Were the council of churches behind us not letting in the Dalai Lama?
This smacks of discrimination. And we all know that in South Africa, discrimination is the eighth deadly sin.
