Born This Way Lyrics

It doesn't matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
'Cause you were born this way, baby

My mama told me when I was young
We're all born superstars
She rolled my hair, put my lipstick on
In the glass of her...

    love and accept who u r no matter what u believe in ...him spelled either way is your interpretation your beliefs no matter what your belief follows it is who you are you are born this way ....even the lyrics can be interpreted differently and will be there is no right or wrong she is saying be yourself no matter what your disability we all are created differently and she is even acknowledging that she is too different if you read the lyrics

    God makes no mistakes and he has a special plan for everyone. But just because you were born a certain way doesn't mean that you are still on the right track. Everyone is born with a certain set of blessings AND henderances that we have to learn to be thankful for and live through/learn from/grow from, respectively. Christians should be loving toward everyone (not just themselves and their friends- "just love yourself and you'll be set"- sorta selfish) whether they are straight or gay, but not peoples sin, and acting on homosexual feelings is a sin. I have struggled with feelings toward the same sex since I was 9, but I have complete peace knowing that I have been obedient to the life Christ called me to. It is a temptation, not who I am. What I am is a Christian and I am very happy with the life that Christ has blessed me with.

    She does refer to herself as "Mother Monster" as do her fans. Also, in the beginning, she is giving birth to something. I can't really tell. And the fact that Gaga seems very accepting and loving makes me think very much of how a parent loves their child. Maybe she is suggesting that parents should love their children like this, no matter what sexual orientation, religion, etc. As for the him or HIM, I believe that she emphasizes that because for many parents it can be the most difficult to accept. And, being a Christian, I do believe that acting upon your homosexuality is a sin, as it is stated in the bible. Of course I do NOT judge at all. I have several gay friends and my favorite teacher is gay. Okay, they haven't come out yet, but we all know XP

    I think she is trying to state that no matter what color, age, gender or sexuality you are you should love yourself the way you are and that god loves you no matter what, cause he made us all the way we are right now. I really like this song because I am Bi and I used to hide myself in regret and my feelings but this song made me realize I am no different than anyone else here and I started opening up to my friends and whatnot. This is the best song ever.

    I am going to put out a lot here and I hope you will just think it over, and check it all out, rather than just react.I think there is several meaning being put out in her music.Loving and accepting people of course are in agreement to treat others with respect and tolerance for our differences...BUT,it is not hard to see the evil entendres that come into play in her music, shows and videos, through costuming and intentions and lyrics. She talks about paws all the time and holds her hands in a claw like pose, which are animal hands, and listen to and watch the references.She used blood reference, and in this uses birthing freakish combinations. It is easy to love the tune and some of the lyrics in her songs...just don;t overlook what else is being slipped by you that you are not noticing. That is a clever way to gain fans, when they are taking what they like and not paying attention to the rest. I see people saying when she says HIM she is referring to God, but her videos and the claims that she does not believe in God, does not support that, rather the visuals and references indicate the opposite.

    My advice, don't go blindly into putting your full backing into anyone, if you do not really know what they are fully about.This is how someone can be deceptive and still have the masses behind them.
    I think she is very artistic, creative and I enjoy her music as well, but with some serious questioning and I do not give myself fully to it because there IS something very dark that is being passed along with it,which I think is meant to make you comfortable with and accepting of...kind of like the old tune that says" Satan is a liar and a conjurer too and if you don't watch out, he'll conjur you.That comes to mind when I see her as well .That is what makes her a conundrum.If you watch, listen and read about people who say that aliens have been taking our DNA either through impregnating women with their own and taking the babies from them, and the people that say she is illuminati, that there is a lizard race ...kind of like what Hollywood may be doing in their movies and series ,exposes us to in shows like V...ARE WE being made desensatized for what is to come , so we will accept it ???People just have to not give up their rational thought and go blindly into the unknown. KNOW your beliefs and values and be prepared to defend them.....All I am saying is think deeply and don't just give yourself over blindly to anyone and jump to defend or onto a band wagon, because you like some of what they do. You do not think evil comes running at you to win you over do you...it deceives you and grooms you to win you over.

    Rebirth was obvious! She giving her self in to the devil was a reborn spirit that is only here to serve the devil and deliver the message that the devil wants to get accross. shes trying to make herself feel better that she gave herself in, and now that she shouldnt feel so bad of what the devil made her be. Really people? what have we come down to? sodomites were burnt for that same reason, for sexuality and using their own sex as a partner. Lets look at the passage from Genesis 19;4,5 "all the men from every part of the city of Sodom - young and old - surrounded the house. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them." GAY= they are, what should we say now and when we keep reading look at what theangels say " The outcry to The Lord against its people is so great that He has sent us to destroy it." (Genesis 19:13)
    OF course GOD LOVES US SOO MUCH SENT HIS SON TO DIE FOR OUR SINS SO THAT WE CAN ALL LIVE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, BUT HE DOES HAVE THAT WRATH AGAINST THOSE WHO HURT HIM WITH THEIR IGNORANCE, WASNT THAT ENOUGH OF WHAT HE DID FOR US, SO WE CAN HAVE FREEDOM WITH HIM NOT TO THE WORLD AND NOT SERVE WHAT THE WORLD HAS FOR YOU.
    lady gaga SINGS THAT ITS OKAY TO BE THE WAY UR REBORN, OF COURSE SHE WANTS TO MAKE HERSELF FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHO SHE IS, AFTER THE DEVIL HAS BEEN TORMENTING HER, SHE REALLY WANTS TO KEEP THE FAME THATS WHY SHE GOES ALONG WITH THE MESSAGE THE devil OFFERS HER. IT SEEMS LIKE ITS TOO LATE, I JUST FEEL BAD FOR HER, THAT SHE WILL NOT STAND STRONG AT THE JUDGEMENT, BECAUSE SHE DID NOT LOVE GOD BUT GAVE HERSELF UP TO THE ONE WHO ROARS AND ALWAYS WANTING DEATH AND DISTRUCTION, =WHO IS THE devil. PEOPLE PLEASE WAKE UP. HOW LONG WILL U BE SOOO IGNORANT, REPENT AND BE SAVED. THE SONGS WILL BLIND U BECAUSE DEVIL IS THERE HYPNOTIZING U TO MAKE U BLIND TO THE TRUTH.Iam crying for all those people who will not believe the TRUTH.
    2nd peter 2;6,8 says and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— "using them as an example to those who afterward would live ungodly" Dear people please understand, i love people soo much and want everyone saved, so please turn from ur wicked ways so that u would not be like those sodomites burnt. and me like Lot, Iam opressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked. Iam not better than anyone, I was a sinner, now am set free:) God longs for everyone to be saved, after all He is the Creator He is the Savior and He is Ur Father, NO one will be able to escape the judgement day. You can live the way ur living in condemnation but just now at the end of the time, You will never be able to escape the Almighty and SEEING GOD!

    Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders...or makes a wrong use of men WILL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!!! PLEASE PEOPLE, AS MUCH AS I LOVE U ALL OPEN UR EYES TO THE WORD OF GOD, AND EXCLUDE URSELF FROM THE THE NETS OF THE DEVIL AND TURN INTO THE ARMS OF CHRIST THAT LOVES ALL SOOOOO MUCH :) LOVE U ALL. TAKE THIS AS A REMINDER THAT GOD IS THE LOVING FATHER THAT IS WAITING FOR THAT ONE LOST SHEEP. DO NOT NEGLECT THIS MESSAGE FOR IT COULD BE UR LAST DAY! THEN IS THE JUDGEMENT. GOD IS GRACE, HE WILL TAKE U IN AT ALL TIMES, NO MATTER HOW FAR U FELL.

    this song is about people who like different things to not be afraid of showing their personality. It's telling them that nobody should stop them from being who they are and being true to themselves.

    Forget about the video, this song is about loving yourself for who you are no matter "black white or beige chola or orient made". She's also fighting back about rumours about her being a man and being bi by saying she doesn't care what the world thinks of her because this is who she is and how she's meant to fulfill her destiny.

    this song is so demonic it is not alright to be gay, bisexual, lesbian or even transexual. this is not the way GOD made you to be, it was ur chose and you need to pray and ask god to show u the right way.

    So I agree with the general message of the song saying that everyone is born equal and deserves equal respect and rights. However if we are all born the same why do we end up different? It's because from the time we're born we all develop differently through different experiences and this affects how we act and react in different situations. Also, I know this will sound a bit contradicting to my first statement, but we are not all the same. We are born different physically and have different brains and hormone levels also affecting us.

    Also there is the topic of the Church and God. I am Catholic. You would assume that i have prejudice to gays and bi people because I follow the teachings of the Church. But i don`t have prejudice. I accept the people for who they are and actually so does the Catholic Church. We accept gays and bi people and it is individuals who have prejudice. We do however have laws against gay marriage. This is because we believe that marriage is the ultimate sign of love and that through it we can have sex which is also a great sign of love. But mainly sex is for reproduction, and this is love by wanting to bring new life into the world to share in the love. So there is big controversy about gays and bi`s not being to get married in the Catholic Church. That is because when we get married we can have sex to reproduce. But if gay people have sex they cannot. The point is that if you can`t have a loving relationship without sex then it really isn`t love. So the controversy isn`t about marriage or love it`s about sex. Currently society thinks that sex can be casual and is normal outside of marriage. The Church disagrees and promotes chastity. Some people might say that the Church is trying to control us but chastity is about having will power and loving the person enough to be able to be with them without sex. In truth it is society that is trying to control us and by telling us to have sex freely and without remorse they break our wills and make us weak mentally.

    Another important topic I’ve read about is that Lady Gaga says that people who worship Satan should love themselves and others too. (“capital HIM or Him”) Well technically that doesn’t work since the fundamentals of worshiping Satan revolve around hatred and prejudice. So they cannot love. But that doesn’t mean WE shouldn’t love them. We should not hate them and trample on them like they’re worse than we are. We should help them by showing them light and goodness. Now I would think of Jesus but not everybody is Christian or even religious. So find something else and help don’t hate.

    So overall I agree with Lady Gaga’s message to love yourself and that everybody deserves to be treated equally but I think you should also think where you can improve. I don’t like how she targets the Church as bad but I do think it can improve with individuals and as a whole. So love yourself for who you are but remember you’re not perfect. And sorry if I ranted a bit and didn’t mean to offend anyone.

    Born This Way is about acceptance. She is saying that no matter religion, race, sexuality, or anything else, you desrve to be accepted. "It doesn't matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M" means that it doesn't matter if you have mortal idols or worship a deity, you are just as good as anyone else. "No matter black white or beige..." is talking about prejudice due to race. And (obvioudsly) "no matter gay..." is talking about your orientation. GaGa has a great point in telling us that God has a plan for everyone and we are perfect in our own way.
