Johannesburg - Ban Lady Gaga – her performances in South Africa will lead to a degeneration of the youth’s moral values. This is what the SA Council of Churches has asked the Department of Arts and Culture to consider before the US star’s concerts to be held later this month.

A handful of council members marched to the department’s Pretoria offices to hand over a memorandum. In a petition on its website, it said Lady Gaga was a self-confessed “Satanist”. “The name Gaga is the name of a demon. Her lyrics denounce the name of Jesus. The tickets… are sold out, all for devil worship while over 30 million children are hungry.”

This is not the first time the star has been slammed. A group of Christian youth in the Philippines recently protested against Lady Gaga’s Born This Way tour, saying her music mocked Jesus Christ and God. - Saturday Star
