Bishops in Philippines ask officials to halt Lady Gaga concert tour
May 21, 2012
The Catholic bishops of the Philippines are asking government officials to cancel concerts by Lady Gaga.
Bishop Arturo Bastes of Sorsogon said that the American pop singer would "promote godlessness" during her sellout tour of the Philippines this week. Bishop Broderick Pabillo, an auxiliary of the Manila archdiocese, pointed out that authorities in South Korea and in Indonesia had refused to allow Lady Gago to perform "because their government saw that she is not a good influence."
