BY NOREEN FAGAN – Lady Gaga is loved by the gays but hated by the Catholics. Her latest single, “Judas,” has thrown the Catholic League in the United States off-kilter and tied their rosaries into knots.
The song is about Judas Iscariot and is sung from Mary Magdalene’s perspective. Wearing nuns' robes, Gaga swallows the rosary and delivers lyrics that have offended the League’s Christian sensibilities.
The Catholic League's president, Bill Donohue, called the single a blasphemous stunt, but added that his group would be more offended if Lady Gaga had more talent.
Gaga’s creative director, Laurieann Gibson, came to the song's defence. Although she admitted it did have some shock value, Gibson said it was “about the inspiration and to never give up… We've created a new Jerusalem."
The kiss-in held outside a London pub didn’t create a new Jerusalem, but it certainly created a stir.
