Babylon is fallen, is fallen,...Come out of her, my people,
There seem to be some on the Streets of Babylon who think "Change" is good....
"Jesuit Father James Martin, who Pope Francis recently made a consultant to the Vatican, said on Good Morning America that he likes the “born this way” message of Lady Gaga.
The song “Born This Way” is widely used as an anthem for the LGBT lobby. It features lyrics like
“No matter gay, straight, or bi / Lesbian, transgendered life / I’m on the right track baby / I was born to survive” and “a different lover is not a sin.”
“I was born this way” is repeated about 30 times throughout the song.
“In your book Building a Bridge, you start with this psalm: ‘You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made,'” ABC’s Dan Harris said to Martin. “Some of my colleagues here at GMA noticed there’s some similarity here to Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way.'”
“I think she got it from the psalm, probably not the other way around…A little theology there,” Martin laughed.
“But you like the message she’s spreading?” asked Harris.
“Oh, I do!” replied Martin. “I mean, you know, the sort of shorthand I saw on a bumper sticker once is God doesn’t make crap, basically…We are fearfully and wonderfully made. We’re all beloved children of God and I think that’s one of the prime messages I’m trying to get across in this book to LGBT people.”
Lady Gaga dances in her underwear throughout the “Born This Way” music video. At one point she pretends she is a male masturbating.
Martin said “Pope Francis” and the fact that “more and more Catholics” are coming out as homosexual are “signs of change” within the Church. He told Harris that he thinks being nice to the Catholic Church is “a very bitter pill” for the gay community to swallow.
“I’m very clear in the book the onus is on the church because it’s the institutional church that has marginalized the LGBT community, not the other way around,” he said.." BFP
