Lady Gaga Criticizes a popular Catholic Blogger who said she had done “obscene things"

Musician Lady Gaga has criticized Becky Roach, a Catholic blogger who said that the singer had done “obscene things".

Gaga prompted surprise among her fans when she posted a photo onInstagram on Sunday of her and a Catholic priest and wrote: “Thank you Father Duffell for a beautiful homily as always and lunch at my pop’s restaurant. I was so moved today when you said … ‘The Eucharist is not a prize for the perfect but the food that God gives us.’ – Father Duffell, Blessed Sacrament Church Nourishment."

Becky Roach of also responded with a blog post entitled “Five Things To Remember When Celebrities Share Their Faith" and commented: “Sometimes we hold these celebrities to a higher standard than we do ourselves. Yes, it’s true that [the] celebrities…don’t always live out Christian values in their actions at all.

“Even in cases such as Lady Gaga, a woman who has unfortunately done a variety of obscene things, let’s see how we can take advantage of this opportunity to make it clear that anyone can turn back to the faith and that even amongst such a lifestyle the desire of God continue to be present. Making hate-filled comments about them over social media is not going to convince them of their wrongdoing and it definitely won’t attract others to Christianity."

Roach also added: “It has become somewhat of a trend for celebrities to share their faith," wrote Roach.

“Many celebrities are sharing Bible verses, quoting priests, and singing Christian music while at the same time still leading a typical Hollywood lifestyle void of Christian values such as modesty and purity."

But Lady Gaga replied on Instagram, saying that celebrities were human too. She said: “Dear Becky Roach, Mary Magdalene washed the feet of Christ and was protected and loved by him. A prostitute. Someone society shames as if she and her body are a man’s trash can. He loved her and did not judge. He let her cry over him and dry his feet with the hair of a harlot. We are not just ‘celebrities’ we are humans and sinners, children, and our lives are not void of values because we struggle. We are as equally forgiven as our neighbour.

“God is never a trend no matter who the believer," the singer wrote.

    St Mary Magdalene also repented and changed her sinful life. Yes, we are all sinners in need of forgiveness but that can not happen until we have a firm purpose to turn from our former sins and live our faith thru holy actions. I’m not judging others, but I do judge myself, and if I say that I’m sorry for my sins I also must NOT remain in those sins.

    Lady GAGA should not be so defensive in reacting to the bloggers’ personal opinion as she is freely entitled to it., but as a Catholic Christian she should be humble enough to admit that her artistic showmanship DID include some obscene interpretations and must apologize for offending the audience for these thoughtlessness, because her blog merely stated some facts., in the same manner that Madonna blasphemes the symbol of the Cross and Crucifix in her stage paraphernalia’s in the name of art., which is a direct contradiction of the true expression of the Catholic faith that holds such symbols with love and utmost respect. Lady GAGA did express her artistic talent onstage by actions that were not pleasing or disgraceful to the Catholic audiences…instead of a defensive reaction, a humble apology with a vow to uphold the Catholic faith and the promise to use her celebrity status to spread the faith by becoming an excellent role model would have aced her the respect in my opinion (as I and the rest of the world including her, celebrity or not are entitled )… for these trying times, as true Catholics, we are all called to be saints, celebrities or not!

    Jesus also told her go and Sin No More! Total forgiveness comes when our daily Prayer is to ask for help to turn away form our daily Sin. Not just ask for forgiveness, and go right back to the same life style, true you can look at it as if Jesus did not Judge Her! But the truth of the Matter is that We will ALL Be Judged God and the end of our Time here on Earth…. Continued Prayers for your Total Conversion, You could help in savings so many Souls.
    God Bless You

    Mary of Magdalen was told to go and sin no more. She gave up her adulterous ways and followed Christ. How about you Lady Gaga? I pray that you do the same.

      In Rome right in front of the Vatican .. things sold are naked pictures of people side by side with religious items. I asked the vendor why is he selling get those with items from the Vatican? It’s art he said.. and the Vatican don’t ecmven get out of their doorstep to criticise the vendors.. is it more obscene to sell In theVatican door steps?

      Why are we to criticise..

    Yes. Jesus is always loving us. We should love him back repenting of our sins, going to confession and changing our life. It’s not so simple as to say he loves me any way, and keep living a sinful life. At the end he will say. “I don’t know you”

    Jesus uses the foolish to confound the wise…Love and Mercy triumphs over all!
    Jesus was never scandalized by the sinner…Only those who felt they were without sin!!!
    Love, Mercy and Compassion are the key’s to the Heart and Heaven:)))

    I am so tired of Mary Magdalene as being pilloried as a prostitute! The ONLY thing the bible says about her was that she was a follower of Jesus, that he healed her of 7 demons, and that he chose her for the honor of appearing to her first at Easter morning, when she went to the grave to finish anointing the body. That’s it! The woman who wept over her sins and anointed his feet, drying them with her hair? Nameless. The woman who was caught in adultery and forgiven her sins? Nameless! NEVER was there ANY reason to think that they were Mary of Magdala! None, other than centuries of cruel propaganda! She was honored by Christ, healed by him, and left her entire life behind to follow him. That’s all we know. And isn’t that wonderful enough? Yes, Jesus forgave that other woman, and that was so amazing, in that day, and that time – what a great example. Yes, the other unknown woman, who shall never be forgotten, wept over her sins and gave him honor before all the guests at table, honor the host had not given, by the way. And that was a great lesson. But these were all different women. And I am actually grateful for that – because it shows how much MORE loving, and MORE accessible Our Lord was! So, St. Mary of Magdala, pray for us! May we trust in the healing touch of the Lord as you did, may we give over our lives to the Lord as you did, and may we love him always, as you did, Amen!

    One of the many wonderful things of being a devout Catholic is the gift of the Sacrament of Confession. As Christ instructed his apostles when he instituted the Sacrament of Confession, “Go and forgive sins. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them. Whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.” There is no sin that cannot be forgiven if thee things are fulfilled: Confess the entire sin, have true remorse for the sin and accept the penance and the firm purpose of amendment not to commit that sin anymore. Lady Gaga can do that as can we all.

    With respect to Mary of Magdala Jesus most certainly did judge. Mary came to Him repentant and Jesus forgave her and told her to “go and sin no more.”
