DHAKA: Christian young people in the Philippines protested on Saturday against upcoming concerts by Lady Gaga despite organisers’ assurances that her performances would not threaten morality.
About 200 Christian youths marched in Manila for a second straight day, holding placards urging the pop singer to `respect our faith, stop the blasphemy`.
The Biblemode Youth Philippines members plan to hold a vigil starting on Sunday near the concert venue.
They said they are offended by Lady Gaga’s music, particularly her song Judas, which they said mocks Jesus Christ.
Authorities in the conservative, majority Roman Catholic country approved the concerts, set for Monday and Tuesday, but said they won`t allow nudity or lewd acts.
