THE South African Council of Churches is planning to prevent Lady Gaga from performing in South Africa.
Report by News24
Lady Gaga is set to perform two stadium shows in South Africa and will be in Johannesburg on November 30 at the FNB Stadium and in Cape Town on December 3 at the Cape Town Stadium.
The church group has now raised its concerns, stating they are in fact worried about the “destructive impact” Lady Gaga can have on South Africa’s youth.
This is not the first time the pop star has been slammed by a prominent group, and has also faced allegations that she is Satanist.
During her tour to the Philippines in May, a group of Christian youth protested against Lady Gaga’s Born This Way tour, saying the pop star’s music mocks Jesus Christ and God.
Reverend Mxolisi Sonti, secretary of the youth forum, said they are afraid of the extent of Satanism in South Africa, and Gaga’s visit could lead to an exponential growth of Satanism.
He also claimed that if the government could stop the Dalai Lama from coming to South Africa, then they can stop Lady Gaga as well.
The Dalai Lama failed to attend the 80th birthday celebration of fellow Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu as a capitulation to China, one of South Africa’s most important economic partners and a strong opponent of the Dalai Lama.
The group is currently planning a march to the department of Arts and Culture in Pretoria on Friday, where they will be handing over a written request to the department in a bid to stop Gaga from coming to South Africa.
