Pop provocateur Lady Gaga has come under fire from a right wing group which claims she is responsible for turning people gay. The star was slammed earlier this year by a group called the Florida Family Association which claimed she was encouraging teens to turn to homosexuality and demanded Office Depot rescind a $1 million (£637,308, €810,766) donation to the star’s Born This Way Foundation. The FFA said: “Lady Gaga’s Born this Way Foundation will influence many teens to embrace homosexuality for their lifetime who may have otherwise worked through their crisis with straight results.”
Now the singer is facing similar criticism from another group known as Mission America, who described her Born This Way video as “complete and utter perversion and really a demonic caricature, frankly, of God’s creation.”
According to Linda Harvey of the group, the song Born This Way is “not just about a deviant view of gender and sexuality, but it is occult in spirituality.”
“Of course she has the usual distortion, including that homosexuality and gender confusion that they’re similar to race or ethnicity, and that’s another big lie,” she said. “The thing is just full of lies.”
She also slammed the singer’s foundation and anti-bullying campaign. The foundation seeks to create a ‘kinder, braver world that celebrates individuality and empowers young people’, but Mission America is having none of that.
“That’s part of this whole incredible anti-bullying campaign that the homosexual community is putting out there, trying to make it seem as if traditional values leads people to harm kids who are behaving homosexually or gender confused and so on and that traditional values causes this, it doesn’t.” Harvey said. “Traditional values is a help and not a harm. Troubled kids are the ones who bully, those bullying incidents need to be punished. We need to get our heads straight about this and not be manipulated and let our kids not be manipulated into embracing homosexuality as a byproduct of thinking we’re being kind.”
