The provocative faith of Lady Gaga – The Washington Post

In an American context where the media equates religion with social conservatism, Lady Gaga represents a welcome, non-fundamentalist Christianity. She is the closest pop culture version, in values if not tone, to her fellow Catholic, Pope Francis. She champions Christian values not of exclusion and discrimination but of empowerment, grace and self-acceptance.

A terrific article about one of the great performers of this day. She is inspiring and hits you in the heart and soul like a good songwriter should. I am a fan of this person who does more than many in the faith of Christianity to build bridges of acceptance and hope for those who have been made to feel they aren’t worthy.

  1. I can’t say I am a big fan of her music (some songs I like, some I don’t – I am not a fan fan). I do appreciate all the things she does and says and preaches about equality among people. We are all just people but often forget that. And for someone as known and famous as Lady GaGa to step up and stand up for equality… I applaud her.
