    Thumbs up Johnny Depp pisses off Focus on the Family and The Christian Coalition

    Christians take aim at Depp for Christmas song

    Saturday, December 03, 2011

    Johnny Depp has come under fire from religious activists for a new Christmas-themed track they've branded "filth."

    The Pirates of the Caribbean star teamed up with British rockers Babybird to record The Jesus Stag Night Club, which tells a story of a boozing Christ-like figure in a strip club.

    But the track has caused uproar amongst religious groups including the Focus on Family campaign.

    A spokesperson says, "We are sickened by Mr. Depp's behaviour. Why did he need to record this song? It is a slap in the face to Christians all over the world."

    Lee Douglas of The Christian Coalition adds, "I'm sure he thinks he's being very funny but he's simply a disgrace. One day, Johnny Depp and his cronies will face the judgment of our Lord and they will burn in hell for this filth."

    Babybird frontman Stephen Jones has brushed off the controversy, insisting, "Some people have no sense of humour."

    I wish they would have included the lyrics in the article. They often get outraged over nothing and provide laughs.

    Saw a man in a bar with his hair like a lady
    Bloody thorns 'round his ears like he was a crazy
    He had holes in his hands and a cross for a spine
    Crushed a berry in his Perrier and called it wine

    He said, "There's great sadness in life, but don't sit there and blub:
    Here's some tickets for your friends to the Jesus Stag Night Club!"

    I can't remember where I was last night
    Think I was hanging naked off a church spire
    Tied by my ankles to a weathervane
    Felt like I was Jesus on fire
    Cuffed to the bumper of a big truck
    I begged my dad (?) to take me to a strip bar
    Drank kerosene slammers through my eyeballs
    Drove myself home in a stolen car

    Turn a bird upside down and it lies in your fingers like a dead man
    When you throw it in the air it's resurrected from your hand
    We went to a motel, he showed me his Bible
    I said, "Tell me the truth," while he looked me in the eyeball
    He said, "There's great happiness in life but don't just sit there in love:
    Here's some tickets for your friends to the Jesus Stag Night Club!"
    I can't remember where I was last night
    Think I was getting on a night bus
    Lyin' on the laps of my good friends
    Judas Priest and Lazarus
    I'm getting married in the big bad morning
    But it feels like I'm giving birth
    I feel so happy I could scream
    "This is my last few seconds on Earth"
    Saw a man in the street lying on the floor beaten up
    He had a fish finger sandwich and a yellow-handled (?) coffee cup
    I bent down drunk and tried to pick him up
    But when I turned around I could see...it was Jesus...


    I can't remember where I was last night
    Think I was hanging on a church spire
    Tied by my ankles to a weathervane
    Felt like I was Jesus on fire
    Cuffed to the bumper of a big truck
    I begged my dad (?) to take me to a strip bar
    Drank kerosene slammers through my eyeballs
    Drove myself home in a stolen car
    I can't remember where I was last night
    Think I was getting on a night bus
    Lyin' on the laps of my good friends
    Judas Priest and Lazarus
    I'm getting married in the big bad morning
    But it feels like I'm giving birth
    I feel so happy I could scream
    "This is my last few seconds on Earth!"

    It is call freedom of expression, the Christians need to mind their own business. Not all of us believe in Jesus.

    So the message is to eat, drink and be merry? They should really just learn to ignore these things. It's not like someone drew a cartoon of a drunken Jesus handing out tickets to his strip club.

    Slightly OT but I saw him on the Graham Norton Show last week and he was talking in the most bizarre Irish/Australian/Scandinavian accent. Strange guy.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    And by complaining about it they have brought attention to a "vulgar" song which I otherwise would have known nothing about. Idjits!

    The song doesn't even say anything to paint Jesus in a bad light. In fact, he comes across as very generous, what with all the freebies he's handing out.
