Lady Gaga has criticized Pope Benedict
XVI's opposition to gay marriage, saying that his views don't matter.
On Friday, Benedict called on Roman
Catholics in France to “defend marriage,” telling a group of
French bishops that the institution would harm society.
Lady Gaga made her comments on Sunday
in an interview with Europe 1.
“I think that gay marriage is
something that is going to happen, it must. We are not truly equal
part of humanity if we are not allowed to freely love one another.”
“What the pope thinks of being gay
does not matter. It doesn't matter to the world. It matters to the
people who like the pope and follow the pope. It's not a reflection
of all Christians. It is not a reflection of all religious people.
It's a point of view of one person,” Lady
“And to all the gay people here. May
you live and love each other until the end of time. And I hope you
will have the human right to breed as an entirely equal, valuable and
special member of society.” (The video is embedded on this page.
