Christian groups in South Korea call for Lady Gaga to stop ‘pornographic’ concert

Christian groups gathered outside a venue in Seoul on Friday to protest against the holding of Lady Gaga’s concert saying it was ‘pornographic’ and promoted homosexuality, Reuters said.

Yoon Jung-hoon, a reverend who organized the "Civilians Network against the Lady Gaga Concert," said “some people can accept this as another culture but its impact is huge beyond art and debases religions. Even adults can't see her performance which is too homosexual and pornographic."

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has been in Seoul for almost a week as she kicks off her Asian “Born This Way” Tour sponsored by Hyundai Motor Co, South Korea's largest car-maker.

But the singer’s hit song ‘Born This Way’ was viewed by many in South Korea to ‘celebrate’ empowerment of gay men and women which was an immoral lifestyle.

The Christian Council of South Korea with 12 million members and 55,000 churches, said in a statement they “will take all kinds of measures such as boycotting Hyundai Card to root out this kind of obscene culture."

It appeared, however, that the concert would still push through despite the massive protest because Yoon said he would attend the concert to "monitor" the performance for homosexual content that could corrupt young people.
