This girl is not in love with Judas, baby

This young girl is upset by the lyrical content and imagery in Lady Gaga's new single "Judas". I don't find this so much obnoxious or offensive as I find it tragic. It reminds me of when I threw out all my secular music for fear of polluting my mind with godless thoughts. It's also a great example of what Pascal Boyer said in his book Religion Explained: "If religion allays anxiety, it cures only a small part of the disease it creates." [p.20]
