Philippine Christians rally against Lady Gaga

Philippine Christians rally against Lady Gaga

About 70 Christian youths in the Philippines have chanted “Stop the Lady Gaga concerts” at a rally calling for the singer’s shows in Manila next week to be cancelled.

Members of a group called Biblemode Youth Philippines said that they are offended by Lady Gaga’s music and videos, in particular her song Judas, which they say mocks Jesus Christ.

Protest leader and former Philippine Congressman Ben Abante says his group plans to file a case against Lady Gaga and concert organisers if she sings Judas at her Manila gigs on Monday and Tuesday.

Former Manila mayor Jose Atienza said the singer and organisers can be punished for offending race or religion.

Lady Gaga scrapped an Indonesia concert following protests there from conservative Muslims.
