Superstar Lady Gaga demonstrated this past weekend the vast gulf that exists between conservative Christianity and her own, unique brand of “Christianity” by claiming that Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence are “the worst representation of Christianity.”
Wow. And this comes from a pop icon who has made a career out of telling people to not judge.
The singer and performer brought her Las Vegas concert to a sudden, screeching halt by stopping her singing and throwing an F-bomb at President Trump for his role in the government shutdown, according to Vanity Fair.
As the crowd cheered her political commentary, she then launched into Mike Pence because he “thinks it’s acceptable that his wife work at a school that bans LGBTQ. You are wrong!”
Karen Pence has been heavily criticized for returning to her art teaching job at a Christian school that, like many schools of various faiths, does not allow the promotion of homosexual or transgender lifestyles on its campus. The school makes it very clear upfront in their biblically-based statement of faith that it is not the best fit for students and staff members who want to live those lifestyles.
But liberals have acted like the idea of a Christian school upholding traditional Christian values is something entirely shocking and unprecedented.
“You said you should not discriminate against Christianity,” Gaga continued. “You are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian!”
“I am a Christian woman, and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome,” she added. “So you can take all that disgrace, Mr. Pence, and you can look yourself in the mirror and you'll find it right there.”
So...what exactly is Gaga’s religion?
Leftist activist and religious commentator Guthrie Graves-Fitzsimmons, writing for the Washington Post, describes her as a Catholic schoolgirl who has grown up and now champions self-acceptance and writes LGBT hymns.
She sees God as a “whoever, whatever” being who affirms everything about her and does not judge, according to the Christian Post. And it’s her part of her mission to spread her brand of religion to others.
“I'm quite a religious woman but very confused about religion,” Gaga, who identifies as bi-sexual, once admitted Larry King.
Graves-Fitzsimmons considers her “an influential Christian leader.”
Twitter took issue with Gaga judging the Pences:
