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.
