Lady GaGa Takes On The Pope Over Gay Marriage
She says Catholic leader's opinion on issue 'doesn't matter'...
Lady GaGa has dismissed the Pope's opinion on gay marriage and told the supreme leader of the Catholic church that his opinion "does not matter" in the debate.
Being interviewed by French radio station Europe 1, the pop star addressed comments made by the pontiff on Friday regarding plans to legalise same-sex marriage in France.
Pope Benedict XVI had 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."
GaGa has been in a combative mood this week, only yesterday she was settling scores with people who had criticised her weight.
