Since Lady Gaga‘s “Judas” video was released Thursday, it’s been very controversial for its proposed religious innuendos. It’s not surprising, is it?

Lady Gaga tweeted, “The Cultural Baptism cannot be stopped.”

Co-director of the video Laurieann Gibson told MTV, “To the religious groups, I don’t even know that there’s religious [stuff in there]. I’m like, you know, Jesus did have a crown of thrones, he did die for my sins. I’m a believer, so I say to them, those religious people, personally, I can’t speak for Gaga, but as a director, a choreographer, as a believer, I say, ‘Take a look at yourself.’ For me, I would never [defame] my savior and the love and the non-judgment of what Jesus means to me. So I say, ‘Take a closer look at why you’re judging.’”

Also Gibson said about the process of creating the video, “The discussions were massive, the concepts were many prior to landing on a place. They were just exciting, full of passion. It was a magical process and we’re really proud of where we ended up.”

    Controversial, perhaps, to only prude Christians and the extremely bored backwoods redneck hics living in Wyoming! When the strange becomes commonplace, I crack a beer and watch Tosh.0. By the way, Jesus had a wife, was probably black, and God is most-likely gay (considering there is no Mrs. God).

    Hello – Nice site, just looking around some pages, it appears to be a pretty nice looking platform you are using here.

    Great post Brat!! Thank you.Ya know Los Angeles should really reconsider this boycott of Arizona. Do they sincerely want a trade war with them?Arizona controls most of the water that flows into the LA basin. If I were that dumba** mayor in LA I'd be very, very careful how I proceeded.What is most disturbing about this entire debacle is that all the lefty collectivists creating an uproar over this have yet to read the damn bill and if they have they are so profoundly stupid I am at a loss finding the correct words to describe them.You just can't fix stupid…

    Great article and so true…followers of the “The Messiah” resent having the facts pointed out to them. Voters for Obama have made up their mind and really don’t want the truth to get in the way. H.L. Mencken was right about the general stupidity of American voters.

    Francisco, muchas gracias, pero realmente no es cuestionable que falten los votos de un solo candidato? hace más de veinte años que voto y nunca me sucedió.Y respondió el 14 de agosto de 2011 a las 16:02:Stella: Por eso soy partidario de la boleta única. Más barata que un sistema electrónico, cualquiera lo entiende, igualitario para todos los candidatos. El sistema actual, para los partidos chicos es muy oneroso.Puede leer, la (para mi lamentable) del juez electoral de la provincia de Buenos Aires sobre varios temas, entre ellos el que le preocupa.
