Christians rally against Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga's tour of Asia has come up against another stumbling block - with a group of Christians protesting against her planned shows in Manila.

The singer has taken her Born This Way Ball tour to Asia and has already had to scrap a concert in Indonesia following protests there from conservative Muslims.

And now the singer faces criticism in the Philippines, where about 70 Christian youths in the Philippines have held a rally calling for the singer's shows in Manila next week to be cancelled.

Members of a group called Biblemode Youth Philippines said that they are offended by Lady Gaga's music and videos, in particular her song Judas, which they say mocks Jesus Christ.

Protest leader and former Philippine Congressman Ben Abante says his group plans to file a case against Lady Gaga and concert organisers if she sings Judas at her Manila gigs on Monday and Tuesday.

Former Manila mayor Jose Atienza said the singer and organisers can be punished for offending race or religion.
