I’m Josh Macuga with newsfeed. If you’re looking for something to do this weekend head out to Madrid Spain for World Youth Day, a 6 day festival held every year by the Catholic Church. Pope John Paul the 2nd, aka JP Deuce, started Catholic-a-palooza, as I’m calling it, back in 1985. The festival holds activities for children from all around the world including Capture the Heathen, Atheist Red Rover and Church Hymn Karaoke. Nothing like singing Ave Maria to get that crowd really revved up. World Youth Day is this summer’s ultimate 6-day getaway you know for youth… I’d still prefer to go to Hedonism, but I guess if I was a World Youth nothing would sound more fun and exciting to me than 6 days of religious preaching.
This is a transcript of Who is Mary Magdalene on Newsfeed...Lady Gaga is stirring up controversy after she played biblical figure Mary Magdalene in a recent music video for her song “Judas.” I’m not sure what the big deal is, this is the most clothes she worn in months… and none of it was edible. A number of Catholics have a problem with the video because it has a strong sexual overtone and they feel Gaga’s character misrepresents the teachings in the bible. But, they haven’t complained at all that Jesus and his disciples are portrayed as a ruthless biker gang, everyone knows that’s in the book of Harley. Lady Gaga said that the theme of the song and the video was about being able to forgive and love people in the face of betrayal, to which the Catholics responded with “We’re telling God on you!”
