You know I pride myself on being mostly a live and let live sort and I’m one of that mostly BS filled group that claims to be ” spiritual but not “religious”. I DO believe in God, I think when you lose a loved one it either strengthens or erodes any sort of “faith” in something greater than yourself. For me when I lost my parents I think it was the former, so I do believe in God, I say my prayers, and find this to be a personal choice that gives me some comfort. I often joke about all the good bands belonging to Satan, because God doesn’t have time to concentrate on music. He’s busy, HE’S GOD, he’s got his hands full creating things like tsunamis, the Grand Canyon, and miracles like low carb beer, and Jessica Alba!. Satan is more committed to the rock, he’s got more time, he’s out in the clubs, he’s listening to demos, he’s singing bands, THAT BEING SAID, it never ceases to amaze me when these religious kooks make statements like the following which I would like to preface with a statement of my own: I grew up in what is perceived to be one of the most “liberal” cities in America, I studied acting at NYU, lived in Greenwich Village for a good six years, in short I’ve known many gay people over the years, and have no problem with anyone who might be, listen I have my own love life to destroy, I do not have time to concern myself with what anyone else does in their boudoir. However Love God’s Way, “a faith based ministry with the goal of spreading god’s love through teaching and healing” (Oh God, here we go….) has published a list of “gay bands” and “safe bands”. Oh wait, it gets better… This is the verbatim introduction that the group has posted as an introduction to their “gay bands” list online:

“One of the most dangerous ways homosexuality invades family life is through popular music. Parents should keep careful watch over their children’s listening habits, especially in this Internet Age of MP3 piracy”. They go on to list “Bands to watch out for”. Here is a selection of the bands they have pronounced “Gay” and their reasoning which appears in parentheses, again, I could not make this up!

Metallica, Ghostface Killa, Cole Porter, Eagles of Death Metal, Interpol, Twisted Sister (jj) .Erasure, The Grateful Dead (drugs too), Marilyn Manson (dark gay), The Doors. Phish, The Strokes, Morrissey (?questionable?), Judas Priest, The Village People, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Jay-Z, Kansas, John Mayer, Barry Manilow, Eminmen, Nirvana, The Killers, Lil’ Wayne, Motorhead, DMX, Wesley Willis, Ted Nugent (loincloth), Dogstar, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Lil’ Kim, Frank Sinatra, Hinder, Nickleback, Audioslave, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Panic at the Disco, The Cure (makeup), Spin Doctors, Lindsey Lohan, The Smiths, Beck, Tom Waits, Cannibal Corpse, Britney Spears(kissed Madonna), NoFx (gay punk), Soup Dragons, Elton John (REALLY GAY!)

I,…… I’m,…… I’m speechless!

I wont bore you with the infinitely shorter list of “Safe bands” except to say that this is what they preface it with. Again the verbatim text from their web site: “We know that it can be difficult to differentiate what is good or bad for your child. With that in mind Love God’s Way has created this powerful tool to let you see some bands and entertainment that is safe for your children” One of the first bands on the “safe” list is the Dresden Dolls. Along with Cheap Trick, Flyleaf…. and a handful of others mostly “Christian rock” dribble like DC Talk.

I would love to see these guys tell DMX, or Metallica to their faces that they are promoting the “gay” lifestyle and or agenda. Its things like this that make me want to turn in my running pants and get out of the human race!

That is all,
End Transmission.
