Lady GaGa “Petite”…with a Secret?

By on April 6, 2010

Does she? Or, doesn’t she? “SHE”…is the one and only, 5’1”, “Lady Gaga!”

I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about, right? By now, it’s an age-old question given how fast rants, raves and rumors fly through the Internet! What I’m referring to is…GENITALIA!

Does, indeed, this remarkably-radical songstress have a pent-up-penis? Well, let’s explore that for a moment (not literally, or course!). If she did, would it change how amazingly talented she is, or how.

“Finally, there’s a singer/songwriter with an eccentricity and boldness that NOBODY could ever copy!?” (I feel like I haven’t seen one of these since the petite-pop-queen herself, Madonna!).

In fact, “Madonna” is someone who inspired Gaga to go forward with her very expressively-artistic performances – and not bat a “false” eyelash!

MADONNA “Bye Bye Bye”

My 18 year old daughter, Alex (who is a very talented photographer/writer/artist, as well as a “petite” fashionista, herself…proclaimed by “mom”), absolutely loves and adores this singing oddity, and will be seeing her in concert later this year (unfortunately, she won’t let me go with her *sigh*…I don’t think the “valley-girl-Mom” works in this type of crowd, LOL!). Although, you couldn’t find a more opposite persona for my daughter, I believe Lady Gaga shows her not only how extreme and idiosyncratic “art” can be, but that individuality, no matter how unconventional it is, can bring you closer to your own authenticity. As a ‘Mom,’ I’m “totally down with that!” While not to this extreme, I’ve always taught my kids to express themselves through their art, their clothing, their character and personality – but mostly, through their words and ideas of what being “unique” means to them! You can hear me saying, a mile away, “You only have ONE life…this is NOT a ‘dress rehearsal’…make it count!”

This “tiny-monster-petite” (would this be considered a “triple oxymoron?”), Lady Gaga, has had to deal with the question about whether or not she is a “he-she, transvestite, or a hermaphrodite” since her album launched in 2008. In looking for the correct answer, I found 458,000-opinions, beliefs, theories, ideas, judgments, rulings and conclusions – but, no final “verdict!” After the first 30 or so posts, I figured it’s all the same – CONJECTURE! But again, WHO CARES!? Who cares if she has a package below her “package?” As long as she is doing her job – entertaining, singing, songwriting, performing…PROVOKING! That’s all I care about!

I will never forget her bloody-theatrical presentation at the “MTV- Music Video Awards” this past year! This eye-popping-petite had me mesmerized, instantly, by her frenetic piano playing, her “like-a-virgin,” white-on-white, scantly-draped costume (I didn’t know whether to cover my son’s eyes…or my husband’s eyes *yikes!*), her prophetic song “Paparazzi” (because we all know this eventually happens to celebrities), and by her most amazingly-disturbing, freedom of artistic-expression and choice, thought-provoking, intense, “you’ve hurt me with your intrusion and rumors, but I will continue to do what I DO,” performance/statement, that I’ve ever seen! (WHEW!).

LADY GAGA “PAPAZZI” 2009 VMA’S

“Oh bloody hell!” one might say – I say, “BRILLIANT!” At this point, we saw Lady Gaga leaving the stool of the piano, singing with a cry in her voice and grabbing at her bodice. Then, all of a sudden, blood began to ooze out, dripping down…down…down, ALL THE WAY DOWN…THERE! To some, so I read, it was shocking, “satanic behavior,” as well as, a purge of a “suicidal skew!” (OH PULLEEAASSE people – GET A LIFE! Did ya not THINK that maybe it had something to do with tragedies that occurred due to the paparazzo chasing celebrities…for example; let’s just say, um, LADY (Princess) DIANA?)

To me, it was a cathartic journey sending me not only in several directions of meaning, guided by the faint indirect suggestions of my own senses, but leading me to hit the rewind button, over and over, and over, again! If an artist can make you do that, then clearly, (in my opinion), there’s a deeper message in that performance, in those words, and in the actions of the artist than just the shock-value of the “blood,” or whatever prop being used to convey that message – look DEEPER people! I’d like to see “Beyonce” do that! (I know…I know, we all know by now – Beyonce has LEGS, and sends a message to “All the Single Ladies,” but I’m SO bored with “those kind” of messages, aren’t you?).

BEYONCE “ALL the Single Ladies”

LADY GAGA has “reinvented” the second leg of her upcoming, 2010, North America “Monster Ball Tour,” starting June 28th at Montreal’s Bell Centre. This peculiar-petite promises to provoke a lot more emotions during her eccentric and atypical performances at 31 top arenas in the U.S. and Canada.

LET THE SHO…err…um, DEBATE…BEGIN!!

    Doesn't like Lady Gaga.. and You shouldn't write about her having a male genitalia, the fact that shes a puppet from the ellite, and how many symbolism is in her videos, and how she is not a good role model for our younger generation, like she claims she is.. just my thoughts..

      Okay, “with all due respect,” it’s SO annoying to me how people attach “artists'” ways in using different symbolisms, words, costumes, etc., as “DEVIL WORSHIPPING!” Like, OMG! How many artist have been accused of this in the past…um, say — CENTURY?? I know everyone thinks because Gaga using the “goat” symbol or poses like Baphomet, she’s behind some devilish occult — there are so many theories behind the “imagined idol” Baphomet, and so many stories that it is ridiculous to attach one meaning to Lady Gaga using this in her artistic-imagery.

      So I guess when my 14 year old son dresses up like a devil for halloween, or wears his SKULL ring, necklace, bracelet, shirts…wears his hair coving up his left eye (ETC.), means he must worship the devil too — Oh yeah…he also listens to Marilyn Manson (which that one, I do not approve of, but I allow my children to think for themselves and have their OWN identity…not mine), and he listens to heavy metal, iron maiden, etc…..OH yeah, and he listens to JOHN LENNON — who, as I’m sure you know, was associated with “devil worshipping” because of the lyrics in his songs AND the lyrics and sounds his songs made/said when played backwards…ewwwww!!!

      Oh pullleeaassee!!! This kind of “rumor” has been going around for years and years, and years, about a myriad of singers, actors, songs, performances, etc. — funny how “their” concerts are always sold out within seconds. If you’re not an artist or have any creative thoughts going on in your brain, then usually people NEED to associate the BOLD with it being some kind of occult, satanic dealings and evil. It makes me sick!

      I don’t know why “people/parents” get their panties in a bunch when they “think” singers like Lady gaga are “role models” for their kids — I’ve raised my children to know better…me and their dad are “their” role models (isn’t that how it’s supposed to be?); that doesn’t mean they can’t be influenced by what they hear and see out in the world, but I raised them to have their OWN mind, smart and to call upon their COMMON SENSE! When they have a question, they come to US — I believe my children listen well to us because we have always listened well to them. UGH…I can go on and on. Please — back up your “theory” of what you write above…THEN, let’s have a debate.

    Tana, you are si blind to the fact. When it all hits the fan, you won’t be able to say you weren’t aware of these things. You seem pretty well versed in them already. Keep ridiculing and stay in that matrix you’ve created for yourself.

    The Bible says that in the last days ALL things would be revealed. Read the Pseudo Occult Media blog & other sites like it that are waking people up. The reason why we know so much about this occult stuff is b/c those who were in it & found Christ are revealing it. These are insiders, but yet you still deny. You won’t even look into the possibility that these artists are programmed.

    Well, all we have to do…our responsibility really… is to tell you what the deal is. It’s just like when we tell people the gospel of Christ. We have a duty to tell you the truth, even if we know in the end you may totally reject it. This way no one can bring forth the excuse at the end of days that no one ever told them.

    What’s sad is that I was just like you say, 5 yrs. ago. Thank the Lord my eyes have finally been opened! I hope the Lord will soften your heart so you will some day be receptive to the things that are written here.

    P.S. Francine Bay, I want to send you some encouragement. You make sure you keep doing what you’re doing; keep getting that word out there. You’ll be able to reach some people, not everyone, but some. Satan wants us to be discouraged. Remember: God will always send someone behind you to give you that extra support and push that you need. May God continue to bless you and keep you.

    God bless

    Honestly I don't want to have a debate, because people will say we are crazy, and only people with open minds will realize what is going on in the world.

    I'm not religious, nor atheist, im in the middle, ( i do have my reasons for this) I do thank you for your encouragements.

    But I do believe people have strong believes and want others to be taken down, by doing the occult, * i dont believe in the occult, nor practice it* but others really do believe in this, and maybe all through history and music industry there are signed, because it is true, and most things that are true are right in front of our noses, and people still ignore them

    and good you dont have ur children see her as an idol.. because if most people were really religious, they shouldn't idolize these false heros and characters cause that is a sin. to put somebody on a high stature like Jesus, or other religious figures, that you can't deny we humans do all the time. when mearly they are just like us, but with an over abundance of money. My problem IS she does want to be a idol for all children, in her own words.

    btw, things are a coincedence, one action has a reaction, and has a rippple effect in the world. like butterfly wings, everything is connected.. EVERYTHING, if you really look into this stuff, u see it everywhere, the all seeing eye she does it's even on the dollar bill, she does a lot of free mason stuff, which is on a lot of buildings, like portland art museum is a masonic temple, people just need to really open their eyes and see! it is right in front of us.

    No your son is not a devil worshipper for listening to music, because I'm sure he doesn't realize what he is "really" listening to, and again I don't believe in all the occult and high power really. but others have strong believes in it.. and again.. its halloween, which is a Pagen holiday, like most other holidays are based on.. and Pagen is not bad, all believing in mother nature and such.

    again with this huge threat of "terrorism" it shows them being radiculs and killing people in a dinner, and that is a good role model correct? I just think there are DEEPER MEANINGS in the music and videos.. in EVERY ART, you aren't suppose to take things to the "cover of the book" when you create art you put hidden things in it, makes better art and more intersting.

    "The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."
    Aristotle (again everything is connected)

      Hi Francine (PART-1): First of all, you can’t expect to speak your mind on a topic/article, then say you don’t want a “debate.” It just doesn’ work that way Secondly, I want to thank you for commenting on my articles and for sharing your thoughts (good and bad) — that’s what keeps places like Bella Petite going!

      I appreciate the soft tone you conveyed in your response and a lot of things you stated, I feel, are valid (not that you were looking for validation, lol). I think “debate” is very healthy; even a little controversy is healthy. Nobody would learn or understand anything, or how others “feel” if there wasn’t dialogue or the exchange of ideas. Of course it can get loud and out of control sometimes, but that’s okay…it’s human emotion, something we should not deny.

      There’s never a rainbow without a storm, and our personal authenticity, our truths and the legitimacy of our beliefs, (our pot of gold), can come from that storm when we least expect it! I absolutely love it when I “think” I’m totally right about something and I’m toe-to-toe with someone (…and believe me, a pissing contest with me is long and arduous) and suddenly I hear their point-of-view, facts and/or opinion, and it seeps into my soul like roots reaching down into the earth, and suddenly I’ll “feel” that theirs is well-founded, and probably right! There’s nothing better than humbling oneself to the fact that you’re not always right or correct in your assessments or views, and that there is always something to be learned. We are imperfect, and life is a journey to be discovered – communication and speech is a rite of passage…one that I totally cherish and admire!

      My asking in my first post, whether or not my son was a “devil-worshipper” since he wears skulls, listens to radical music, etc., was a rhetorical one. But I thank you for commenting on it and confirming my same opinion. My son, since he was 5, fell in love with classical music ever since the Montessori school took him on a field trip to see the Denver Orchestra. Now, almost 15, (in two days), he loves a range of music that includes Jazz, Rock, Metal, Techno, R&B and some Rap (his least favorite).

      Believe me, he “does” know what he’s listening to. That’s because we talk openly about everything. I’ve shared with him my “rocker” days, my underground Raves, my “Woodstock-ish” escapades (no, I didn’t go to Woodstock, just a reference, lol)…all of it. My children totally know what I’ve been through in my life; the hills and valleys I’ve climbed and slid through, the wrongs that I’ve made right, but more importantly, that there’s a yin and yang that one always runs into in life. They know that my sins of the past don’t have to be their sins of the future – my almost 19 year old (in 9 days) proves that to me every day. My parenting style may be unconventional, but proof is in the pudding, and I am amazed at the hearts of my children (I know, I’m a mom and my point-of-view is biased, I’m sure…but I think by now, I know a good quality human being).

      Of course people have strong beliefs and want to take others down, but who are we to judge “who” goes down? And I’m sorry, but it doesn’t have only to do with people with money – remember, it’s the “love” of money that’s evil, not money itself. Some of the very performers, actors, singers, etc., who have been accused of the same thing you guys are accusing Gaga for, have helped raise money for some serious causes (i.e., hunger, natural disasters, homelessness, poverty, to name just a few). How can this be part of a make-up or framework of “evil?” I don’t get it. There ARE a lot of bad people in this world, but there are MORE people that are GOOD – why not focus your efforts on them and positive causes instead of jumping on the bandwagon of others who are pointing the finger, twisting their artistic expression and blogging their way to purgatory? (continued below in PART-2)

    • Tana

      April 25, 2010 at 10:53 pm

      PART-2 (to FRANCINE): You know, it’s funny how people talk about others being “programmed” – but isn’t that what we do to our own children, whether as a conformist or not? I mean, we set things in motion for our kids, placing in them some sort of “belief” system, whether as a puritan or free-spirited hippie (or anything in-between), it’s just the way of life. But no matter what we do, no matter how much time we spend with them, how much we think we know them…we really don’t and won’t know “all” of them because we transform as we get older. No matter how close you are to someone, there are those little secret idiosyncrasies that come out when they’re not around.

      As I stated in my previous post, I’ve always taught my children to think for themselves (of course with safety boundaries and on age-appropriate terms), to confront people and/or situations (that are affecting them in a negative way) with civility; to command respect, not demand it, and to “teach” people how you want to be treated, as well as, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” And last, but not least, for them to never be afraid to express themselves, whether it be through writing, appearance, art or the words they speak. They, like us, have one life to live…and this is no rehearsal.

      There will always be “idols” or things “idolized” in this world – it’s been that way since cave-man or the days of Adam and Eve (whichever way you believe). Again, one can only worry about themselves and conduct behavior according to one’s own beliefs.

      I am a bit confused by your statement that you are NOT “religious,” but write as if you follow some sort of religious philosophy, citing “sins” and all. When you say you’re in the “middle,” and that you’re not “religious” or an “atheist,” that tells “me” that you must be “spiritual” and believe in some sort of greater being – is that true? By the way, are you Republican or Democrat? (Or, are you “in the middle?”). At some point, people have to take a stand, one way or the other, politically and ethically.

      I’ll have to disagree with you that things are a “coincidence.” No way could you ever convince me of that – I have too many episodes of so called “coincidences” that have happened in my life…all that have pertained to something that has happened critically bigger and better, some that have led a greater magnitude of value or significance…ah, it blows my mind every time – I get ducky-bumps just thinking about it! I think it’s a shame when people think it’s “coincidental.” I feel you’re missing out on some really important lessons and rewards – but then again, that’s just my opinion.

      I also wouldn’t worry about Lady Gaga inserting herself as an “idol” for our children/teens. If the moral groundwork has been set by their parents, and whether or not they view Lady Gaga (or anyone else, for that matter) as their “idol,” (during this inquisitive time in their lives), they inherently will come back to those moral teachings, and, at some point, lay them down as their own foundation. I just strongly believe in that because as “kids,” we all grow up idolizing some new artist, person, place or thing, get caught up in the frill and frenzy of all our emotions as a whole, but once “in” life, come to the realization that it’s just not the “right” thing to do, nor important enough to “idolize”…it settles down, and more than likely, just goes away.

      You quoted “Aristotle,” but you didn’t enlighten us as to what that quote “means” to you, personally…? As I read it, I can take it literally or figuratively – art can be abstract, it can be literal, it can be imaginative, it can be lies, it can be truths…no one knows but the artist, and even then, they may not know.

      Pablo Picasso said: “We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies.” Like, seriously – what the hell does that mean exactly?

      Last thing – you basically contradict yourself by first saying “things are a coincidence,” yet end your post with “everything is connected.” So, which way is it? I'm genuinely curious!

    TO VERSION: Oh holy night! Are you kidding me? This is the best you can do? Your homily is lacking and factually empty. What I asked for were FACTS, not hearsay, not speculation…not links to other “blogs” containing “bloggers” who have the mind of Swiss cheese (as I read some of them). There have been many followers of the occult and of religious and/or other types of “cults” for Centuries now (perhaps the biggest one going on is Obama and his followers…there’s where you should be putting your idle time in – hey, I’m American…I’m entitled to “free speech,” and an opinion). Hmm,“What Would Jesus Do?” Definitely not speculate or judge – “Thou shalt not judge lest ye be judged.” Did you forget that?

    And girl, let me tell you – you have no idea of who I am, or where I’ve been in life…or the miles I’ve walked. My eyes have been WIDE open, and for longer than 5 years (and I didn’t have to get to the “bottom” to open them…because I’m smart…and because when you’re a true child of the Lord, they never close in the first place). But I’m very glad to hear yours have been “opened.” Now, if only you can “see” what’s really going on, and learn to give your sermon that edifies people instead of making accusations and judgments, you’ll be adding to your cause instead of deterring the “lost sheep” away.

    Indeed, I will be laughing my way to the “end,” because I have true “joy” in my heart and I take ownership in all I do, good or bad (didn’t you know? I’m not perfect!). Laughter is God’s best medicine for us, and once you’ve procured the kind of laughter that tickles you from the inside out; the kind that causes you to take a deep breath, allowing you, for that moment, to taste the fruits of your labor (whether it be finding your truth, your wisdom, your call of duty), then exhaling knowing that the corollary of these “fruits” are all part of a bigger picture. My husband and I have created a great environment here – one without conformity or rigidity (thank God!). One that allows my children to be part of a better society; a society that doesn’t judge or spread hate, who shows “love” (being the most used word in the Bible) and compassion towards the “angels” of our world.

    The “Bible” says a lot of things, and yes, much already has been revealed. But it sounds as though you need to read more of the Bible instead of these “Pseudo” Occult blogs. I’ll bet you spend most of your time scampering about on the Internet, scolding and lecturing as many as you can find, huh? Yes, I’m speculating, but that should tell you right there that the message you’re conveying is not the message “God” had in mind. I’ve been a messenger of God since the day I was “dunked,” except my messages are about the “love” of God, the freewill he granted us, the journey we each have to take to find out our, and His “truth,” (because “we” can’t save anyone)…and last, but not least, the pursuit of happiness, which should never end because it comes in all forms. I am a defender of people, children, and the “underdog;” just as Jesus was (and before you get in a tiff, I wasn’t trying to compare myself to “Jesus.”). However, molding your actions after Him is what it’s all about.

    I’m sorry if I sound rude, but your reasoning for “why” you must preach your “message” is mind-boggling. Perhaps your eyes are not fully opened, yet? Stop worrying about the “end days,” and whether or not people got the “message,” or what their “excuse” is going to be – their blood is not going to be on your hands. You can’t control that – speak your mind, tell your truth, be consistent towards God’s will, and plant those seeds with ACTIONS, not talk. Matthew 7:21-23 says, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who “does” the will of my father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’” (“does,” means “doing,” means “actions,” not “talk”). But, if you “read” the Bible, I’m sure you know all this anyway.

    We all need to take the plank out of our own eye before trying to remove the sawdust out of our ‘brothers and sister’. Sorry for the delay in this response, but I’ve been busy helping my daughter get ready for the Lady GaGa concert!

        Ah, that’s a bummer — I would have loved hearing your “facts,” (which I’m assuming is what you were writing to me about…?)…maybe it’s a “sign?” Regardless, it’s just all “opinion.” The main thing is that you stood up for what you believe to be true…and I stood up for what I believe is true. Unless we personally know Gaga…we don’t know the “real” truth — but it does get annoying how when a new artist comes about and they’re “different,” unique and a bit risque, they get tagged with the “devil-worshipping” crap. I like to work with FACTS, and I don’t like thinking of spreading ugly rumors about someone…especially when it’s none of my business.

    You say that I am judging…no, Tana, I am not. I am simply stating what is obvious in my eyes. You mentioned that you don't believe in coincidence and yet when you see different artists come out year after year with the same symbolism with little to no variation you don't seem to think that there is some kind of "plan" going on there. If anything Gaga and others like her have my sympathy. I believe w/o a shadow of a doubt that she is programmed (programmed people don't have a mind of their own) and she needs prayer and deliverance. She's a victim. Google Josef Mengele and the daisy game to learn the beginnings of MK Ultra Project Monarch. Read about the atrocious, disgusting things that victims are put through. It's hell. If you read those blogs you will see that they never blame the artists. They simply expose the conspiracy that is driving them and how they are being used to forward their sick agenda. Cathy O'Brian is one survivor whose written books as well as others.

      Okay, we’ll go step by step (I haven’t read ALL your posts yet…going to respond to your May 3, at 11:10pm first. VERSION, you ARE “judging.” What else would you call it? You still have NOT given me any “facts” to support your accusation towards Lady Gaga. I understand that you’re all riled up inside and you have your own agenda (to free the enslaved programmed thinkers of this world…I get it!), but you need to supply me with facts ABOUT your accused before I can agree or rally with someone. For all you know, Lady Gaga could be the sweetest, most caring person around…someone who NOW has a platform to help others (which most entertainers do…charities, donations, etc.).

      I KNOW that there are “victims” of devil-worshippers, and of brain-washing and all that kind of stuff. Omg, who doesn’t know that? But it’s the innocent people, performers, artists, etc., who get tagged by this kind of garbage…when it’s all speculation (because of symbolisms and materials ussed) and rumors. You say that there is not a “shadow of doubt” in your mind that she is INDEED a “programmed” evil-doer…well then — give me the damn proof and FACTS. If you know this with all your heart, then it should be simply enough to show.

      Oh Holly Night! What in GAWD’s name does “Josef Mengele” have to do with LADY GAGA?!? Come on now Version…stay on track with me — we are talking about ONE person (for now)…actually, you are starting to freak me out. You sound like you’re “programmed” yourself!! All kidding aside, in all fairness, I can send you a thousand “links” implying tons and tons of things that can easily attach to “people,” lots of “people” in general…not just performers, and celebrities. I used to wear “symbols” on my uniform for work…different kinds that would imply “naughty & nice,” because I knew if I were to appeal to “all” of the crowd, instead of only part, I would make MORE money…and working IS about making money; and, I used to go to seminars that would teach you how to be a more “positive” person — “people living synergistically involved.” Believe me…now that’s MIND PROGRAMMING. And really, if you want to get technical…what the heck do you think CHURCH is? It’s the same darn thing, but because it’s “church,” we don’t think of it as something “evil,” or that IT will “brain-wash” us.

      Welcome to the world — LIFE is a series of brain-washing events…starting when we leave the womb and attach ourselves to the boob! Manipulation is ALL around us each and everyday…whether we know it or not, or like it or not — you do it…I do it…we ALL do it in one way or another. But, we are the deciding factor in which line we draw in the sand…and how far we cross over. Okay…I’m heading to part 2!

    Now, I'd like to expand on that rock bottom comment. You say you didn't have to hit rock bottom to have your eyes open because you're smart. Please explain to me what that has to do with anything.?There are people who have been hopelessly depressed, lost loved ones and suffered a whole myriad of societal ills and in the last hour reached out to Jesus to help them climb out of it. Sometimes it does take a tragedy for someone to decide they can't do it on their own anymore; They realize @ that moment there's only ONE who can help them. Look at what it took for Saul of Tarses to turn from his evil ways. Either way, its a blessing.

      Well, I guess you’re right – each person’s “rock bottom” is very subjective, which is why I was only talking about MY “personal truth.” I didn’t have, what you would call, a typical “rock bottom,” (i.e., drugs, alcohol, legal issues, etc.), and I was being a bit pompous and vague when I said, “Because I’m smart.” But, in my truth, I was “smart” by the choices I made. Don’t get me wrong, I was definitely in the “fire” many times…I just never fell into the PIT – whether that’s by “smarts,” or just plain old common sense, I don’t know..I’d like to think of it as having “smarts.” My comment was not meant as an attack, especially towards anyone else; I was posting to YOU and your comments about ME, only!

      In thinking about the term “rock-bottom,” I guess I would identify mine to the loss of my mom (while I was a teenager) and knowing that the last words out of my mouth…the last words she ever heard from me were, well…let’s just say they weren’t “I love you.” In fact, they were terrible, hateful words…words of fear and regret, I’m sure. I had no idea what “cancer” was at that time, nor did I have anyone explain to me what it can do – I just saw my mom fading away, and I think it was very scary for me. Plus, the environment that we grew up in & lived in, caused me to always be aggressive, protective and in survival mode; even as a young child. It’s taken MANY years for me to forgive myself and understand that, again, it’s just all part of the bigger picture; all part of shaping the person I am today (when it most matters since I have children) — what makes me, ME…adding to my character, to my personality, to the intensity of my OWN integrity and convictions (which is RADICAL to me…I love the whole idea of it!) – “Cause and effect, cause and effect,” it’s what makes the world go ‘round!

      You can’t show me ONE person who hasn’t been through “societal ills,” or who doesn’t have their own story to tell – whether it be a friend, a counselor, a pastor, a parent…there’s always someone to reach out to (which is of God)…and if it’s in God’s will, you’ll climb out of it. If you don’t, then there may be a greater purpose and reason.

      Tragedies, depression, sadness, lost loved-ones, suffering, etc., are a part of life (as I’m sure you know) – how would we ever learn to love, to forgive, to learn the meaning of God’s love/and the love of one another, and about the meaning of life, if it weren’t for all these things? Heck, I believed in “statistics” until my 12 yr old son was diagnosed w/type 1 diabetes in ’07. I first…for a MOMENT, asked God, “Why? Why is this happening to MY son?” Then, as fast as that thought had entered my mind, the words of praise and thanks came out of my mouth…thanking God that it isn’t “cancer,” or something that couldn’t be “managed.” I no longer believe in statistics – it can happen to anyone.

      One never knows who they are judging, what their walk of life is/was like – I try to remember that anytime I get irritated or confrontational with someone (doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen, but I try) – that’s why I don’t like that you’re sitting in judgment. At this point, all you have are assumptions, speculations and rumors…oh, and websites that have nothing to do with Lady Gaga (until you prove otherwise). But, even if you did have proof…so what? Who are you to judge? And where does it all begin? Do you ever ask yourself that?

  9. Version

    PT. 3
    You are obviously a MATURE Christian (can I say that?) and a "true child of the Lord". I, on the other hand, am a babe ( I guess that means I'm not as true). I don't worry about deterring the lost sheep away because the great thing about God is he uses even our mistakes to His advantage. I pray to be a blessing to people and not to be a stumbling block to them. If I am, I ask forgiveness. It is always my prayer never to make one foot to go astray. I am not afraid of chastisement or reproof because God will speak through anyone. No matter how many mistakes I make I will continue to cleave to Jesus & as long as He's by my side he will set the crooked paths straight.
    Second,
    How are we to talk about the love of God and not his sense of justice, righteousness and hatred of sin? There are countless examples in the Bible where Jesus convicted people of sin and then shared the gospel. One has to know WHY God loves them and WHAT he came to save them from. He used the Law or ten commandments to do this.

      May 10, 2010 at 9:06 pm

      Yes, indeed, I am a child of God, (at least I like to think I am), but I am no way NEAR being a “Mature Christian;” I just follow what my heart says most of the time. However, there are those rare incidences when I listen to my head…that’s when I seem to go wrong (again, my opinion).

      I think we all are “babes” in the knowledge of the Lord – how can we ever really grasp what happened…the full story, every detail, every drop of blood, every tear shed, every heart saved? We can’t…we take what we’ve read, process it in our minds, then, hopefully, execute action through our hearts from the meaning of what we just learned…not sit and judge. (I tell my kids before they read the bible, to pray and ask God to bless them with the MEANING that HE wants them to have since the devil occupies our minds).

      If you want to be a true “blessing” to people, then that should mean ALL people…not pick and choose amongst the sinners of the world; whether it’s online or in person, be an example of the “Christ-like” person God wants you to be – it’s a tall order, and not one to be taken lightly. You’re human; you’ll make mistakes, you’ll learn from them (hopefully), and then pass it on. However, I must tell you, if I wasn’t right with God, or knew what I know, reading your judgment call of Lady Gaga, and even your approach towards me about my post would not turn me on to know MORE about what you know (meaning, about God). If you need further clarification, let me know and I’ll write more.

      If you really want to cleave to Jesus and His word, then don’t make excuses about “crooked paths,” or “stumbling,” or not caring about being “chastised,” because we all know about life’s adventures, the ups and downs, the ebb and flow…blah, blah…and that we WILL inevitably make major mistakes throughout our lives.

      Instead, why not be more productive and positive about what you know & what you can share, and what you know how to share with others? Ugh, I’ve always hated the brimstone and fire speech (not saying that’s what you’re doing), but I also can’t stand when a “Christian” approaches me weak and full of excuses. Use YOUR words along with the spoken words…put YOUR personal touch in there and trust that God gave you that “touch.” I don’t know how old you are, but this IS 2010! People think, act and do differently nowadays than before…Christians definitely need a new approach to catch the many, internet-info-seeking folk out there; different times calls for different CHIMES!!

      As you know, the Bible is full of contradictions from the Old Testament to the New – “an eye for an eye,” in the Old, yet in the New, Jesus says, “Turn the other cheek.” I’m no scholar, but in all the years I’ve read, I feel I’ve read many contradictions; but the New Testament freed us from the Old, unless you’re Jewish…so really, how do we know? We know by “faith,” right? By faith, you should give people the benefit of the doubt; and if you…say, did know Lady Gaga, and she was not right with God – is this how you would approach her?

      Gosh, I remember back in ’95 when AOL came out, I used to go into their devil chat-rooms and preach the word; but I would preach how much Jesus loved them and all the positive stuff about being saved, etc. Of course, I would always get kicked out of the room by a moderator, but no matter what, I would always have ONE person write down my screen-name and suddenly send me an instant message – from there, we would ‘chat’ for hours, he asking questions, me with my concordance trying my hardest to answer. Truth of Love, I believe, is what pieced through their evil façade.

  10. Verse22

    May 4, 2010 at 1:05 am

    PT. 4 __When you realize you have broken the law, can't live by it and you are a sinner who is going to hell…deserves hell even, it is then that the gospel can be preached EFFECTIVELY and one will ask, __"My God, my God, what can I do to be saved?" Then they will understand the magnitude of God's love for them, be grateful and want to live a life that is pleasing to Him. Many times people talked about the love God had for me, but it didn't register…It went in one ear and out the other. You must give them understanding. One must know the degenerate state that they are in and that they need saving. The Bible says no one is good, not one. You also know works can not save us. So, just because you see people doing good works means nothing. John Wayne Gacy did lots of good works until the evil he kept was brought to light. It is the fruit we ought to pay attention to. Many do "good works" to cover for the evil that they do. It's all part of the deception.

      God gave us “freewill,” correct? It is your duty, as a Christian, to spread the Gospel, but that’s all you can do; do good unto others and spread the word. So, what happens if you approach a deaf and blind person, how do you tell HIM? Would he go to hell because someone never figured out how to spread the word to a deaf/blind person? I used to speak in tongues when I was 13 and throughout my 20’s…but I realized it only edified myself because nobody could understand what I was saying.

      I think you need to follow your heart…take a deep breath and know that God will use you for His purpose if you so let him. All you need to do is plant the seed, he will make it grow. Use your “gifts” to “effectively” bring people to God, if that’s what you want to do…but I’m telling you, damning someone for what they’re doing at this point in their lives, doesn’t do anything but make people (as well as non-believers) question YOU. Be an example of what a “child of God” stands for. Remember, it’s all about God’s timing…perhaps Lady Gaga isn’t “there” yet?

      I just scanned through your next couple of posts – EEE WHOLE LAY! You truly need to take a chill-pill and just relax – who are you to “save” everyone? You’re a farmer…plant the seed and water it from time to time…LET GOD!! As far as all the continued garb that you’re spewing, I’ll have to comment tomorrow…I’m feeling “old as Moses” and need some down-time!”

  11. Verse22

    May 4, 2010 at 1:44 am

    I have a desire to spread the gospel, wherever that may lead me, whatever I may have to endure. I'm not trying to be overly righteous or anything. I just want to spread the truth. You don't believe there's any kind of conspiracy, even though there are those who were a part of it, are speaking out about it and say that there is (Springmeier actually has a tape of one of Madonna's underground films where she is performing one of their sick rituals). That's perfectly fine. I'm glad you use the verse from Matthew 7:21-23 because that applies to all of us doesn't it?/ We all have to examine ourselves. I want to stay saved, not fall from grace…that is why this is a walk. I intend to stay in this race AND if by some chance I don't make it in, it was well worth the ride. But, I'll leave that to the author and finisher of my faith if that's OK with you.

    • Tana

      May 11, 2010 at 4:37 am

      IN RESPONSE TO VERSION 5TH POST (I THINK) OMG, stop being a martyr…spread the Gospel, don't "spew" it! There are many "truths" about many topics from God's word…if you're not ready for this, don't push it, or else you'll push people away; start with an easy subject like being saved or about the "love" of God — everything comes in God's time; you can't run until you learn to walk…same goes for others living in SIN.

      By the way, you don't lose your salvation — have some faith for crying out loud…have FAITH in yourself as well. If you walk in FEAR…FEAR is what you're going to convey, and trust me, you sound very "fearful" right now.

  12. Verse22

    May 4, 2010 at 2:22 am

    (A post is missing…)____I want to warn people about things they are probably not aware of. For instance, did you know that the peace symbol is actually satanic…but don't take my word for it research it for yourself.____I do read my bible, Tana, thank you very much (probably not as much as I should) and if we're not here to warn people about the wrath to come then why are we here and witnessing in the first place? That's always on my mind, it's my main motivation. I do go on certain blogs but I only comment occasionally. Usually, I visit to read what's new and the striking observations. I can assure you, these ladies and gentleman don't have minds full of swiss cheese. I don't pretend that I am better than anyone else…if anything, I'm foolish and weak, but God said that he would use the foolish and weak to confound the wise, that way, people will know it is He that works through me and it can't be attributed to any specific talent or righteousness of my own.____

    • tana

      May 11, 2010 at 4:45 am

      Really? The "peace" symbol is EVIL?? OMG…what can we expect next? Did you know that my middle finger sticking up from my hand means to "F*Off?" How ridiculous is that? SOMEONE, out in this wonderful world of ours, decided to create a meaning for our middle finger — how funny is that? It's the INTENT, not the finger.

      VERSION – I'm sure if you search long enough on the "good old" internet, you'll find many meanings to many things…good and bad, old and new (this is NOTHING new). Now I'm annoyed, thanks a lot!

      I'm sorry, I can tolerate ignorance, but plain "stupidity" is a hard one for me. You should feel ashamed of yourself for even referring and connecting "evil" to a symbol that, perhaps, millions used to signify the end of an arduous battle…a battle where many "loved-ones" were lost.

      You NEED to get off the Internet…

  13. Verse22

    May 4, 2010 at 2:37 am

    Lastly, Francine…the Bible says there is no such thing as neutrality…you are either for Jesus or for Satan. See, that seems kind of harsh, judgmental, accusatory, but…it is the truth. But, like I said, that goes with the territory. Jesus had some pretty strong words for the Pharisees (Vipers!), but there was no one on in this world more loving than Him. He's quite an example to follow. I fail at following his example everyday, but he is perfecting me, thank God.
    I'm really tired and I don't think I addressed everything…(these posts are pretty drawn out) but that's my POV and where I was coming from. Tana, you obviously didn't like the "tone" of my post. Well, look at your first post and tell me whether it didn't follow in the same vein. Sure, the text wasn't addressed to me, but I sort of took my cue off of that. If I offended you, I apologize, but it's very obvious we are not going to see eye 2 eye on this.

    • Tana

      May 11, 2010 at 4:54 am

      It's a rarity to "offend" me — I think that's called "maturity," but hell…what do I know?

      Did you know that "assuming" makes an "Ass" out of "u" and "me?" I don't like that. I never said I didn't "Like" your "tone" in your post…and you're right, it wasn't "addressed" to you — but that's what these "blogs" are for…for comment and debate, ideas and commentary! But, if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen, right? And boy, do I see you running!

      If you would like to continue this…post actual FACT that connects Lady Gaga since that's what the topic was originally about. And omg, please, please stop taking verses and text out of context…you HAVE to look deeper, read more…understand BETTER; it's always "cute" to me how new "babes" use as many bible quotes to fit their agenda, as possible…no, no…I think it's great, but really, put YOU into it…show people what God has given you and taught YOU…stop HIDING! Come out, come out, wherever you are!!!

      Authenticity will SET YOU FREE!!!

      One last tip:

  14. Verse22

    May 4, 2010 at 2:39 am

    So maybe this will settle things…

    As a MATURE Christian you obviously have the Holy Spirit resting in and upon you. Ask Him if a conspiracy such as this exists. It may take a while, but I believe you will get an answer.

    Good night and God bless

    • Tana

      May 12, 2010 at 9:05 am

      VERSE — Well of course “conspiracy” exists, that’s a really dumb question; it’s existed since time! I don’t need to “Holy Spirit” to give me an answer about that. The Holy Spirit is usually never “resting” in me, I strap it on like armor everyday and become the vessel HE uses.

      FEAR and PARANOIA is of the Devil — it really sounds like you have a weak spirit…a spirit of “fear,” which I totally understand. Your “seeking” of this knowledge of brainwashing and devil-worshipping will only bring about negative feelings and emotions. Remember — “Cause and Effect?” And don’t forget the laws of attraction…if I were you, I’d stop staulking these websites…instead engulf your mind with the “Gospel” as you say you want to be a pillar of, huh?

  15. Verse22

    May 4, 2010 at 3:17 am

    Oh and I almost forgot…

    Since people think this baphomet stuff is imaginary (like Satan, demons, etc). Anyone with a UK or German passport should look at it very carefully. The chakras and the head of baphomet is displayed quiet clearly. Why put these particular images on a passport?

    I also want to make one thing absolutely clear: Everything I do is for the love of my fellow man. Everything I do is to bring glory to his name. I will not talk about things I've done or anything because the Bible warns OTHERS should say nice things about you and not to toot your horn. If I "do" anything it is to try to obey God. (Thank God he gives us the power even to do that). Do I always…no, but I am a work in progress. I do my fair share, often to my detriment, but I do what I can.
    I have to ask the Lord for discernment now b/c I can get carried away, but sharing the gospel is the greatest gift I can offer.

    I'm out….

  16. Version

    May 3, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    OK, here are your FACTS:

    Fritz Springmeier (ex-illuminati programmer, wrote books)
    Svali (ex-programmer, victim. Interview called "Svali Speaks" is actually online as well as excerpts from Springmeiers books )
    John Todd (wrote a book; also illuminati insider) They tried to disparage him of course, lots of info on him on web and You Tube.
    Father Alberto Rivera (former Jesuit Priest; revealed a lot of the evil doings going on in the Catholic church.)

    The reason I referenced those blogs was because it was a compact version of the info they and many others revealed. They are simply expounding on their work. I consider their work FACTUAL because it is their own personal account. Whether you believe this to be so is up to you.
