Lady Gaga made headlines around the globe this week by criticizing Pope Benedict XVI’s comments against marriage equality initiatives in France.
According to MTV.co.uk:
“Pope Benedict XVIhad told French bishops: ‘Marriage and the family are institutions that must be promoted and defended from every possible misrepresentation of their true nature, since whatever is injurious to them is injurious to society itself.’
“But GaGa was having none of that, and retorted: ‘I think that gay marriage is going to happen. It must. We are not actually equal humanity if we are not allowed to freely love one another.
” ‘What the Pope thinks of being gay does not matter to the world. It matters to the people who like the Pope and follow the Pope. It is not a reflection of all religious people.”
“And The Mirror quoted her as saying: ‘This is not what Christians believe, those who believe in something, that have a religion.
” ‘It is the point of view of one person.’
