GAGA: Some don’t get her anti-bullying message

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” tour arrived at the Tacoma Dome, and what did we witness? No problems with the adult and teen concertgoers, but a group from Florida funding an airplane to fly a banner “Not Born This Way” and bringing protesters to harass the peaceful line of attendees.

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” message is a message for any kid who is bullied for any reason. That does include gay kids. It also includes overweight kids, skinny kids, kids of all races, girls, boys, nonathletes, artists and kids with any other imperfection perceived to make them different.

Even I, now considered to be elderly, was bullied as a child for a obvious defect, and yes, I was born that way.

I suggest the protesters follow the “Love One Another” message that Jesus delivered. And then use their funding for the airplane and travel to follow another of Christ’s messages – “Feed My Flock” – and use their money to do just that.
