Satanic or simply shocking?

ABS-CBNNews.com reports that Filipino religious groups Intercessors for the Philippines (IFTP) and Biblemode Youth Philippines are actively campaigning against the staging of Lady Gaga's upcoming concert. The pop star is set to perform on May 21 and May 22 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. Both groups are set to hold a 72-hour prayer vigil to protest Lady Gaga's scheduled performances. The report, however, did not indicate if the groups would be doing it jointly in the same venue. The exact schedule of the prayer vigil was also not revealed. The report only said that anti-Lady Gaga protesters would stage a "Jericho March" to the SM Mall of Asia sometime on Saturday, May 19.

According to the report, the IFTP, in particular, believed that Lady Gaga was propagating "Satanic rituals" in her videos. (They were presumably referring to the video for her song, "Judas.") The report quoted IFTP's Pastor Joel Bataclan, who said, "Yung kanyang paggamit ng mga imageries (sic) at mga lyrics na direktang lumalaban sa Panginoon (She uses imagery and lyrics that are directly against God)."

Meanwhile, the Commission on Youth of† Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines' Fr. Conegundo Garganta said that Lady Gaga's brand of entertainment violates the tenets of Christianity. Garganta lamented that the youth are being corrupted by Lady Gaga. "Kinokopya nila lahat ehóang pag-iisip, ang pagkilos, ang paggalaw (They mimic everything she doesófrom the way she thinks, moves, and acts)," sabi ni , executive secretary ng Commission on Youth ng CBCP.

    I just hope Lady Gaga addresses the growing phenomenon of pedophile priests during her Manila concert. What a way to lay the gauntlet down on these glory-hounding clergy(men?) - by having the CBCP conduct a Corona-sized investigation of cocksuckers in cassocks.

    Pansin ko lang may kainitan na naman si Glad to be Pinoy dito. Hehehe! sablay talaga lagi si Glad pag nag comment lagi na lang. Para kasing googled lahat at walang insight ang mga isinusulat eh. Puede namang mag google kaya lang lagyan naman ng personal na insight para naman hindi ma-plagiarism. Tapos, dito naman puro America, America. Para ka tuloy isang pinoy na nakapunta lang ng ibang bansa, ng magbalik puro na reklamo at kumpara ng kumpara sa ibang bansa. He surely lost his lucky charm, dati naman intellligent ang mga comments nya, heheh . Glad, sorry. Huwag mo na sagutin ito, yung iba na lang sa ibaba,yung ibang comments. Napadaan lang ako dito at nabasa ko mga comments sa feed na ito hehehhe!

    @Glad to be Pinoy,

    Alam mo ang studies na sinasabi mo ay pang American. Bakit mo gagamitin ang study ng America sa Pilipinas at Pilipino? Iba ang kultura ng pinoy sa americans. Hindi mo ba alam na ang mga Amerikano ay mas inclined sila sa leisure kaya ang mga activities nila ay leading to pleasure at sila mas malaki ang suicidal tendency. Ang pinoy ay considered na happy people kaya hindi masyado malaki ang suicidal tendency. Mayron pero, natuturuan sila at nagagabayan unlike sa America kasi nga culture nila ang may problema.

    Bakit ba mas marami kang alam sa America? May ibang klase ng mentality ka ba? Pilipinas at Pilipino ang pinag uusapan dito. Huwag ka masyadong maka uncle Sam, Gald to be Pinoy pa naman ang username mo. Siguro nasa America ka, ganyan ang nangyayari sa mga Pinoy na walang masyadong pagmamahal sa bansa, madali mabuyo sa ibang lahi at kultura, nagkakaroon ng identity crisis habang tumatagal

    oo nga pero sa paglabas pa lang ng ating maganda at magarbong simbahan, puno ng mga pulubing hindi nila maasikaso, Mga seminaryong puno ng homosexualida(hindi nila kinukwento yan). Mga paring uunahin ang mayaman kays abutin ang kamay ng mahihirap. Ang vatican na ulo ng simbahang katoliko abay magugulat kayo at punong puno ng mga symbolo at rebulto ng "PANINIWALANG EHYPTO) . Yan ba ang turo ni Kristo? Kung si Kristo ay buhay ngayon... matagal nang durog ang mga simbahan.

    The Church is not God, Dont ever make that mistake.

    @glad to be pinoy: you are so obobs, ever! those studies have long been discredited. there's a correlation, but not a causation between listening to "satanic" songs and suicide.

    people who commit suicide have been depressed in the first place-- it's not the songs that pushed them to kill themselves, but their depression. you're so obobs!

    alam mo, in case you dont know your music history, yan din ang sinasabi nila about Elvis's and the Beatles' music. but our parents and grand parents survived... and are here criticizing Lady Gaga.

    I dont find her music satanic. just plain cheesy.

    @Gina: i admire your self-righteousness. (insert sarcasm here) How very typical of so called Christians.

    it's just music people. if you dont like it, dont listen to it.

    Ano na naman itong mga katarantaduhan nitong mga right wing fundamentalists at CBCP? wala ba kayong magawang matino ,like giving away the wealth of the church to the poor? gimmick lang iyang ki Lady Gaga at props para dumugin siya ng mga fans, at na te-threaten kayo? na te-threaten ba ang limos sa simbahan? C'mon! dapat ang pop culture eh secular at hindi hinahaluan ng mga kademonyuhan ng CBCP!

    I agree with IFTP. I'm a Christian and I cringe everytime I see her and hear her songs. An insult to our faith. I can't wait to see her and her m*ronic followers and f*g fans experience their perpetual commeupance in h*ll

      @gina...i do not know lady g*g* or any of her songs so i am not in a position to say if she is satanic or not. but allow me to share with everybody what i have read about the effects on listening to songs that are considered anti-christ:

      1. studies show that most of the people who committed suicide listen to rock or satanic songs. this is the reason why there was a proposal in one of the states in america to ban rock concerts.

      2. rock and satanic songs may result to negative subliminal seduction.

    Whenever i click on Gaga's vids it's like '85 all over again. Like watching a campier version of Madonna. And they say she's evil?! Pedophile priests are evil because they rip off their victims' souls. Gaga? She just wants to rip off your cash money for you to buy her CDs and jump around at her concert! Frackers.
