Ok, maybe The Bible Says is going to turn out to be a parody, but it still seems pretty bizarre. I wrote Donnie Davies earlier in the day and asked:
“I cannot tell if you mean your song as a parody or not. Could you please explain?”
He wrote back and said
No, no Sir. We’re very serious. We made the video for serious reasons. Some people seem to think it is funny. I guess we can understand that but what’s been happening in this country isn’t funny unless you have a really dark sense of humor.
If have to have people in authority, we think they have to be trustworthy and honest. We hate what homosexuals liar like Ted Haggard, John Paulk and Mark Foley are doing. We hope that our song can help just a little bit to run sick creeps like that out of town on a rail. We hope people will learn that they can’t trust people so easily.
I attempted to post a video response to his video but I doubt he will post it.
Mr. Davies has a new video on YouTube which says God Hates Censorship and lists the two websites.
UPDATE: 1/24/07 – Andrew Sullivan thinks it is satire. Truth is, no one knows but Mr. Davies and his band mates, and they aren’t talking.
Except here, Mr. Davies has issued a comment on his MySpace blog about YouTube:
Video on MySpace
Well friends, YouTube took down the video that Evening Service and I have worked so hard on. I don’t know what hurts more; being censored because of my message or people making fun of my weight. Hopefully MySpace believes in freedom of expression more than Google does. Maybe China isn’t the only country Google is censoring.
Spread the Word
Keep the Faith
ps. If any of ya’ll post the video anywhere else please tell us!
