Over the weekend, Senate majority leader Harry Reid tweeted Lady Gaga following the passage of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The Nevada Democrat exclaimed, “We Did It.” He also reportedly cited her in a note about the nuclear proliferation treaty.
Bill Donohue e-mailed the following letter to Reid’s office today:
I read with interest your communications with your close friend, Lady Gaga. Perhaps you can use your networking skills to service Roman Catholics: Tell her to cease and desist with her nun-bashing antics.
In June, Ms. Gaga was seen in a video squirming around half-naked with her half-naked buddies, all the while abusing Catholic symbols. While performing “Alejandro,” she was shown dressed in a glossy-red nun’s habit while flashing the cross and swallowing a rosary. Oh, yes, she was also depicted getting raped by her S&M boyfriends. In August, Gaga donned the nun’s habit again while performing in Tacoma.
As the leader of the U.S. Senate, Americans expect you to conduct yourself in a manner commensurate with the status of your position. But now that you have befriended this woman, Catholics expect that you will use your influence to rehabilitate her, with an eye towards treating nuns with the kind of respect she affords homosexuals.
