The Soundtrack to Phelps' Brain

So I was out on MySpace, checking on a friend's page. He posted about a website listing music that promotes being queer, or is otherwise homo-friendly. It lists safe groups and dangerous groups.

Among the naughty groups/artists: Cole Porter, the Grateful Dead, Barry Manilow, Morrissey, The Doors, and Frank Sinatra. (And of course Elton John, Indigo Girls, Melissa Etheridge, Madonna, Cher, etc.)

Among the safe groups: Dresden Dolls, Blondie, Cyndi Lauper, Cheap Trick, and Evanescence.

Someone had commented on the blog post, and mentioned that Donnie, the "gentleman" that is maintaining the list, also has a music video out there. Since I believe in keeping friends close and enemies closer, I thought I'd be a sport and take a listen. I'm not sure Fred Phelps could have written a better (read: more bigotted, horrifying, insane, etc.) ditty. It's called The Bible Says. Warning: If you're not ready to hear "God Hates Fags" done as Christian pop, do NOT follow the link. I admit...there's something disconcerting about a sugary beat proclaiming "If you're a fag, he hates you too..."

This is proof that the human capacity for stupidity is truly limitless.
