Lady Gaga’s ‘Judas’ is sacrilegious?

Lady Gaga - Judas

So Lady Gaga’s new single, Judas, was released last Friday, and … well, to be honest with you, I actually liked it. Sure, it sounds a bit too much like Bad Romance for me to really consider it an original song, but at least she’s ripping off her own songs. The good ones, specifically. But apparently, people just can’t enjoy good music anymore because here comes Catholic League President Bill Donohue, harbinger of all things old and crotchety, to shit on everyone’s good times with some bullshit about how the song is sacrilegious.

The suggestive lyrics have angered some, including The Catholic League, though, it should be noted, the organization hadn’t heard the song or seen the preview clip of the video before issuing a complaint. “This is a stunt… Lady Gaga tries to continue to shock Catholics and Christians in general: she dresses as a nun … she swallows the rosary. She has now morphed into a caricature of herself,” Catholic League President Bill Donohue said in a statement. SOURCE

Oh, put that card back in the deck already. Guess what? No one cares. I actually have a little jar filled with all the fucks I give, and guess what? It’s empty! I mean hell, this is probably the most exposure kids in America will get to the bible. Which is probably for the best, considering the good book promotes rape, slavery, murder, infanticide, bestiality, homophobia … yeah, don’t read the Bible. Just be good to people and believe in whoever or whatever you want to believe in, how does that sound?

PS This evening, Bill Donohue will appear on CNN Headline News’ Showbiz Tonight to discuss Gaga’s newest single Judas. He will appear at 5:30PM. Oh good times!
