South Korean Christians are trying to pray away Lady Gaga.

According to AFP, a group of Christians gathered Sunday night to pray and protest Gaga’s concert, scheduled for April 27.

From AFP:

About 300 Protestant church members will gather in downtown Seoul Sunday night to hold a group prayer against the concert in the capital, Kang Ju-Hyun, a prayer organiser told AFP.

"We will pray to God that the concert will not be realised so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the country," he said.

The concert originally had a 12-and-older age limit, but the Korea Media Rating Board raised the age restriction to 18.

Lady Gaga’s tour will feature many hits off of her May 2011 release Born this Way.
