OMFG — watch this music video

[UPDATE 2: YouTube yanked it, Google Video just took it offline, but Myspace still has it up.]

Jeremy sent me a link to this and, well, there are no words to explain this “ex-gay” music video — The Bible Says (God Hates a Fag), by Donnie Davies and Evening Service (hailing from south Houston). This is so campy it has to be a joke, but he plays it straight — so to speak. 


The Bible Says

God hates a fag…Read your bible, and you’ll be sure — to enter heaven, there’s no backdoor. Righteous man, get on your knees, there lies no virtue in so-do-my. Lord you are my shield, stay me through the fight, shelter me from urges and help me see the light.

Just precious. Oh, if you go to the Love God’s Way web site, you can learn about Pastor Donnie’s list of “Bands to watch out for” — that promote homosexuality, because popular music is “one of the most dangerous ways homosexuality invades family life.”

Off-limits artists include: The Spores, Scissor Sisters, Rufus Wainwright, Cole Porter, Eagles of Death Metal, Polyphonic Spree, The Faint, Interpol, The Doors, Phish, The Strokes, Sufjan Stevens, Morrissey, The Pet Shop Boys, Metallica, Judas Priest, The Secret Handshake.

How in the hell did Queen and The Village People get left off of this list?

From his bio:

I am in fact a Reformed Homosexual and I’m trying to let people know that there is an escape from being Gay. By letting people know that “God hates a Fag” I am doing Gods work, I’m preaching.

When I was in highschool I kept having feelings for the boys I was in school with. Often I would let these feelings take over. I got into lots of trouble when I was Gay.

And he has a special reparative therapy program for those seeking a way out.

I’ve been researching for many years now and feel I’ve come up with a very strong program to help cure people of Homosexuality. Its called the C.H.O.P.S program and We’re running full steam ahead with it. C.H.O.P.S stands for:

  * C: Changing
  * H: Homosexuals
  * O: (into) Ordinary
  * P: People

Come on, this HAS to be a joke. It’s too close to the real-life “confessions” some of the characters I blog about (see James Hartline).

UPDATE: The complete lyrics to the song are after the jump.Thanks to Sinfonian at Blast Off! for doing the transcribing.

Mmmm … yeah, yeah

Give me strength to fight temptation
Lord, lead me to your salvation
The Bible says as plain as day
With a man you shall not lay

Lord, you are my strength
Fill me with your love
Help me fight these feelings
Help me rise above

Lord, help them hear me and make clear my voice
‘Cause being gay is nothing but a choice

CHORUS
God hates a fag
God hates fags
God hates fags
So if you’re a fag, He hates you, too

Read the Bible and you’ll be sure
To enter heaven, there’s no back door
Righteous man, get on your knees
There lies no virtue in sodomy

Lord you are my shield
Sustain me through the fight
A shelter from the urges
And help me see the light

You filthy sinners should just let me be
‘Cause Jesus my savior’s the only man for me

REPEAT CHORUS

Lord, you are my strength
Fill me with your love
Help me fight these feelings
Help me rise above

Lord, help them hear me and make clear my voice
‘Cause being gay is nothing but a choice

REPEAT CHORUS
