31-year-old Stanley Huang, a hip-hop singer and former member of the band LA Boyz, will release an album titled Atheist Like Me on December 29. The title track contains lyrics such as:
I hope we can be happy forever and never separate/
But I cannot go to heaven, so I cannot be with you/
Eternity doesn’t exist, (I) don’t believe in god/
Death is not the end, I won’t stop missing you/
Can’t kiss your face, no matter how I miss you.
Huang goes on to say he also doesn’t believe in reincarnation.
What does Huang believe in?
Apparently, that doesn’t cut it for religious people, who have protested the record company, forcing a temporary shutdown of its website. This is all according to the China Times, which also reports on the more than 100 protest phone calls and additional protest emails the company has received.That’s right… how dare a song promote love!
Seriously, the song is on the radio. Just change the station.
What exactly is anyone protesting? The mere mention that someone doesn’t believe in God? Do these protesters understand they can disagree wth Huang?
