Hopefully Miss Gaga will use the free time to develop a greater appreciation for the virtues of appearing in public fully clothed.

Would they let her play if she promises to not come out of the egg?

Hey , Lady GaGa, how’s the ‘’tolerance’’ thing working out for you?

From the picture, it would seem they are calling Lady Gaga the N word.

Or am I wrong about the word KAFIR ?

I actually like some of her music. (covers head and ducks)

She does write her own stuff, I respect that.

She seems really intelligent.

She doesn’t party, and she will get rich off of those that do. She is Capitalist/Conservative, just keep it hush-hush.

I have heard every song thanks to my future bride (a 42 y.o. woman).

This is Madonna on steriods.

She is cool in my book. (ducking and running for cover)

Lady Gaga is even more fully clothed than your average Muslim Burqa-wearing woman

This will be an interesting FR thread to see who is hated more, Muslims or Lady Gaga.

With one F, that’s the Arabic word for ‘infidel’.

RE: Or am I wrong about the word KAFIR ?

Generally the word kafir means ‘unbeliever’.

A Muslim friend tells me that it is not meant as a derogatory label (unless it is used against Muslims by another Muslim).

Muslims, hands down. Lady Gaga will be gone and forgotten in a few years. Muslims will still be butchering people to show how much they love Allah.

Capitalist maybe, but conservative?

Heck she’s openly FOR Gay marriage.

The word ‘infidel’ is, by definition, a derogatory term, by anyone who would use it in a serious sentence.

Can you really think of a non-sarcastic way to use the word ‘infidel’ without meaning it as an insult?

If she had naked little boys dancing around her, the islam faggots would welcome her with open arms. No Sh!t.

And hotdogs, real hot dogs on a bun. Just ask obama.

South Korean Christians protested Lady Gaga for her portrayal of homosexuality and pornography in her concerts...



It did not do a darn thing.... 45,000 Korean fans showed up at her concert anyway.

We all know rad muzzies are uptight and way too inhibited but Lady CaKa is a bit too trashy on the eyes and senses. No loss either way. Why dont all gay marriagers take their honey’s moon to Jakarta. Visit the shrine of the boy Bam while they’re at it.

I don’t like Eninem, but I feel bad for him having to stand next to that thing.

Members of a religious group give thumbs-down signs as they shout "Stop Lady Gaga Concert" during a rally near the venue of the pop diva's upcoming concert Saturday, May 19, 2012 in suburban Pasay, south of Manila, Philippines. They said they were offended by her music and videos, in particular her song "Judas," which they say mocks Jesus Christ.

Postscript: Protests didn't do a darned thing in Manila either... her concert show was SOLD OUT.

Can you really think of a non-sarcastic way to use the word ‘infidel’ without meaning it as an insult?

Jeff Dunham, via his puppet Achmed the Dead Terrorist seems to do a hysterically good job of it.

“Can you really think of a non-sarcastic way to use the word ‘infidel’ without meaning it as an insult?”

I’ll start my multi-part mini-rant by responding to this first: The word, printed in both Arabic and English on my tee shirt and ball cap, is not an insult, but a source of pride.

Onward: A good friend of mine is a Chinese man, from a merchant family, who grew up in Indonesia. The history of their barbarism to the Chinese there - who keep their economy afloat, except when they are all killed of and looted by the natives every few years - is chilling to hear about. If this is a “moderate” Muslim country, I’d hate to be in an extreme one.

Lady Gaga. If she is a lady. Typical clueless showbiz phenomenon, probably unable make the connection between her in-your-face deviance and her support for would-be political tyrants who would round up and liquidate her kind if they finally came to power.

She is a great snake oil saleswoman, but that does not make her conservative. Algore is also a hustler, but I would not dare to call him conservative.

Police officials had originally said they were worried about potential violence and didn't approve of the pop star's message or outfits.

Who can blame them?

Business acumen has absolutely nothing to do with being conservative.

Zero, nada, zilch. Why do you think the wealthy are Obama supporters?

"I actually like some of her music."

I too was surprised at how talented this young woman is...saw her sing with Tony Bennett...was amazed at the class act with a real class act. Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, un huh that's her...is no worse than some of the haute couture designers for both men and women....and they all show some degree in exhibitionism - some fun....some sick.

HaHa, not. She is astute and intellectual, more so than most on this site.

I can’t believe I am defending her here. She is a smart lady. That is all.

Sometimes psuedo-Libs know what they are doing, even if they walk on the backs of others.

Ethical? Not.
Exploitative? Indeed.
Conservative? Maybe.

I give her kudos for her business acumen.

Flame away. I can take it.
