    Default Koreans pray against Lady Gaga

    Scores of South Korean Christians staged protests yesterday as US singer Lady Gaga arrived for a concert in Seoul.

    About 300 Protestant church members were to gather in downtown Seoul last night to hold a group prayer against the concert in the capital.

    "We will pray to God that the concert will not be realised so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the country," prayer organiser Kang Ju-Hyun said

    I'll make mistakes, jump to conclusions, be one sided... But I am willing to learn from this and turn it into an experience rather than a delusion.

    Knowledge is power. Power corrupts. Study hard. Become evil.

    If they would pray against Justin Beiber or One Direction I could see a point, but Gaga ...

    From Wikipedia:
    David Yonggi Cho (formely known as Paul Yonggi Cho) is a Korean Christian minister. He is Senior Pastor and founder of the Yoido Full Gospel Church (Assemblies of God), the world's largest congregation with a membership of 1,000,000 (as of 2007[update]).[1] Cho still conducts two services of the seven the church holds a day; they are so heavily attended that people often must arrive an hour early to have a seat.

    And they could only manage to get 300 to the prayer meeting? Pathetic.

    In many ways I think this demonstrates the problem with news these days. I have this view that the quality of news is deteriorating, but perhaps that is a myth. Stories like this, that effectively say that a fringe religion holds silly views only make the news because they'll create strong responses in people. Actually we know fringe groups exist, and we know that they'll do silly things. Giving them attention seems only detrimental to society, and with no benefit (other than, perhaps, entertainment). Imagine what would have happened, for example, if that pastor in the US who burnt the Koran just wasn't given any news coverage. It's like the theory of why you shouldn't negotiate with terrorists - it's just giving undeserved legitimacy to their concerns.

    I find it hard to disagree that it is deteriorating, commenting only that reading back over a couple of centuries it is equally hard to tell when it was not.
    There are no good arguments for gods.

    What, indeed, is an atheist? He is one who destroys delusions which are harmful to humanity in order to lead men back to nature, to reality, to reason. Baron d'Holbach

    _____

    If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men. Baron d'Holbach

    shouldnt they be more worried about the psycho to the north of them instead of a entertainer?
    Evil is Evil, lesser, greater, middling it makes no difference. The degree is arbitrary, the definitions blurred. If iam to choose between one Evil or another, ild rather not choose at all - Geralt of Rivia - Killing Monsters
