they made her what she is today

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 22, 2010

It’s revealing to see that the singer/military expert Lady Gaga cites women religious as having a “positive influence” on her development. You might say that the nuns helped to make her what she is today. She even has an idea of what the nuns who taught her in school are probably saying about her now:

She did a good job of using her artistic abilities to really create a new kind of pop.

It’s even more revealing that the editors of the Catholic Religious Vocation Discernment Guide felt that Lady Gaga’s endorsement of religious life* was worthy of inclusion.

 
* - Or is she claiming that the women religious endorse her?

    Her influences speak volumes to our culture. Just what do these religious stand for? Maybe Gaga misunderstood the lessons she had been taught that day.

    If you have any questions as to why we're in trouble as a culture and as a church, they've been partially answered. The term gag comes to mind.
