Sweet home, Jesus

Think of Sweet Home Alabama, but instead of the lyrics "Sweet Home, Alabama, I'm coming home to you", these guys are singing, "Sweet Jesus, Sweet Jesus, Lord I'm coming home to you". Oh yes, and please "give your life to jesus, I'm coming home to you". Indeed.

It's the Stand & Be Counted Music Festival. Christian music - all christian, all the time, lest ye burn in the pits of brimstone and fire. And if you don't support the concert, you don't support the troops. Fact. I'm currently supporting the troops from now (5:15 pm) until 5:30 pm, at which point I will be driving to a friend's house. I worked all day (and didn't support the troops). I shall be back after 10 pm (I hope) and the concert will be over. I hope.

That is all. (Mind you, I think Christianity is a fine religion. I just don't want it shoved into my ear drums at 800 decibels with a bass that is shaking my entire apartment).

Just sayin.

We just had a "Jesus Jubilee" in my neighborhood. Although by "neighborhood" I mean "it was six miles away at a farm house that looks like it's just WAITING to be on the evening news as the site of a serial killing." We have a big definition of "neighborhood" out here.

The conflation of being a fundamentalist Christian and supporting the troops disturbs me. You can support the troops all you want and be any religion you want while you do it. In fact, if you would like to support the troops while simultaneously supporting animals, there's a program out there that accepts donations to help get unit mascots out of Iraq and back to the US with their soldiers.

If you have ever thanked a troop for their service, you supported a troop in a way more meaningful manner than a crowd of Jesus people playing loud music, let me tell you. If you would like to thank a troop, I can give you e-mail addresses. :)

I feel strongly that root canals are better than Christian rock. And I'm Christian.
