Lady Gaga in SA ‘will increase Satanism’

2012-11-29 00:00

THE South African Council of Churches Youth Forum said Lady Gaga performing in South Africa would lead to the growth of Satanism in the country.

The Born This Way singer landed in the country on Tuesday at Lanseria Airport and will perform in Johannesburg tomorrow and Cape Town on Monday.

The Reverend Mxolisi Sonti, the secretary of the SACC Youth Forum, mentioned a poster of the controversial American artist bathing in blood.

“If that is not her, she should say who it is,” he told The Witness, adding that they were not going to try to prevent her from performing.

“She says she does not expect children to have sex, but her actions speak otherwise.

“We will have children who want to be like her,” said Sonti.

“You are the society that you represent. Look into your character, your behaviour and your actions. You can’t be somebody you are not representing.

“What actions are you showing us?” he asked.

There have already been two protests — in Cape Town and Pretoria — ahead of the arrival of the bizarre superstar.

Lady Gaga was protested against in South Korea, where Christians there felt she promoted homosexuality and pornography, and in Indonesia, where conservatives said her sexy clothes and dance moves would corrupt young people.
