The Catholic Leagues Takes Aim at Lady Gaga's "Alejandro" Video

Bill Donohue of The Catholic League has taken aim at Lady Gaga and her sexually explicit, religious imagery-heavy new video, "Alejandro," which is a damn catchy song reminiscent of ABBA. Donohue is reported as having said, "Lady Gaga is playing Madonna copy cat, squirming around half-naked with half-naked guys, abusing Catholic symbols—they're always Catholic symbols—while bleating out 'Alejandro' enough times to induce vomit. Dressed occasionally as a nun in a glossy-red habit, the Madonna wannabe flashes the cross, swallows a rosary and manages to get raped by her S&M boyfriends. Hence, she has now become the new poster girl for American decadence and Catholic bashing, sans the looks and talent of her role model. Like Madonna, Lady Gaga was raised Catholic and then morphed into something unrecognizable.
Shouldn't Catholic right wingers be worrying about children and dogs in orphanages as opposed to a pop star using their imagery in an inflammatory way? Do they not realize they are feeding her fire?
