2. I think of bigotry as prejudice. It's not bigotry to speak out against people's actions. Nor should we tolerate defamation and blasphemy against Christ and His Saints, sexualizing and trivializing them, which I would say this is:
I thought this was supposed to also be an impersonation of Madonna and her old boyfriend - Jesus:
She wasn't confused... she did this on purpose. Sexualized imagery and full nudity mixed w/ Christian symbols and figures... is a mockery of Christianity and the teachings of the Church which adjure us to eschew sexual immorality and the lusts of the flesh.
If anything, the most apparent reality is that she has a deep respect for Jesus.
COUGH! What? If she had a "deep respect for Jesus" then why would she do this? She does it for the 'shock factor' which = $.
Once again: where did she mock Christ?
"In the video, Gaga plays a modern-day Mary Magdalene, riding in with motorcycle gang Jesus and his apostles. Sleekly sexualized, it places her, among other things, writing in a bath with both Jesus and Judas, who share intimate moments, as well.

After the single was released during Holy Week, Catholic League spokesman Bill Donohue slammed Gaga for the song.

The video concludes with Gaga as Magdalene being stoned in a white dress.”
