Cee Lo, Noooooooooooooo!

Man, I love Cee Lo Green’s music.  What was he thinking last night?

Charged with singing Lennon’s famous solo-era tune on NBC’s New Year’s Eve show shortly before the ball dropped in Times Square , Green changed the lyrics from “Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too” to “Nothing to kill or die for, And all religion’s true.”

You don’t draw a mustache on the Mona Lisa because you think you know better.  If you’re going to sing Lennon’s song, sing Lennon’s song.

The change didn’t go unnoticed, and to preempt criticism, he soon tweeted, “Yo I meant no disrespect by changing the lyric guys! I was trying to say a world were u could believe what u wanted that’s all.”

Then say that.  Saying someone has the right to believe whatever they wish is completely different than saying it’s true.  We already get enough of religious people bellyaching about us opposing free thought every time we say, “You’re wrong about god’s existence.”
