The Worldwide Religious News website reports today (June 7, 2011) that Lebanese authorities late last week intercepted and impounded boxes filled with Lady Gaga's newest album "Born this Way" at Beirut's international airport, because the album may be offensive to the country's Christian population.
Despite having sold millions of copies worldwide, Lady Gaga's album is not for sale in Lebanese music stores. Instead, cartons of the new release are stacked in police offices.
Lady Gaga -- who received a traditional Catholic upbringing -- is infamous for her provocative music, drawing on themes of religion and sexuality.
The video above is for one of the album's songs, "Judas," which was banned from Lebanese radio stations last April.
