Scott Lively Got Himself a Song

Steve Martin famously sings a song called Atheists Ain’t Got No Songs, but deranged anti-gay bigots like Scott Lively? They’ve got songs. And he promises his followers that “you will be blessed” by this particularly terrible one that he’s promoting: The Rainbow Belongs to God. Oh, snap. He’s gonna get kneecapped by a leprechaun for that.

The Rainbow belongs to God – Part I and Part II from Med Grundlov Skal Land Bygges on Vimeo.

    Rainbows belong to the gods of Aesgaard. That’s what the bridge Bifröst is made out of.

    Sure, God. Good luck catching it.*

     
    * If you’re picturing God giddily hopping and skipping across a field, chasing a rainbow, congratulations. You’ve attained a state of…me.

    Only a state, Modus? I would have thought at least a world, if not your own continuum.

    Atheists ain’t got no songs?

    Well imagine that!

    Also rainbows = natural spectroscopes.

    I got to hear Martin perform “Atheists Ain’t Got No Songs” live when he was touring with the Steep Canyon Rangers. I’ll admit I laughed. (Also, great show, catch him if he tours near you sometime, he’s awesome.)

    If I was forced to sit through a live rendition of this Scott Lively tripe? My small intestine would probably leap up my neck and throttle my own brain in a desperate bid to end my suffering.

    Oh dear I watched the whole thing. The entire thing just begs for an MST3K treatment. I mean, they get to “Purple” and don’t use it to refer to it being the color of kings? This was written by the most unpoetic, banal, writer ever.

    Also: “Royal Rainbow Reign?” Lady, there’s only one Royal Rainbow, and the King of All Cosmos from “Katamary Damacy” would like to have his trademark back.

    Now I need to wash the bad taste out of my brain by listening to a GOOD song about a meteorological phenomenon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d09-oSVY9iw

    Oh, snap. He’s gonna get kneecapped by a leprechaun for that.

    Sigh… if only.

    But which god? Ninurta, a Semitic god of war and agriculture, crowned with the rainbow? Iris, an early Greek goddess who served as messenger of the Olympians, whose travels were marked by a rainbow? Rainbow Serpent, whom the Aborigines hail as the creator of all? Indra, warrior god of the Vedas, for whom the rainbow was, literally, a bow?

    “And a fucked up world it is too.”

    A sentence I think we can (nearly?) all agree on?

    And the the crap they believe.

    Hamas, you soon to be fucken dead douchecanoes I’m talkin’ bout you.

    Surrender now. Turn yourselves in, give up and fucken just FUCKING STOP IT!!

    Stop with the terrorism. Stop with the hateful brain washing. Stop with the fucking firing rockets at Israel. And stop blaming Israel for shooting back at ya when when you do this shit.

    You cannot and will not win. You;ll just take your own people with you along with many innocent Israelis and others.

    Just. Fucking. Stop.

    Idiots.

    I know they won’t.

    And so do you.

    But so many of you will still blame Israel.

    StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return! Destroy the Palestinians!

    There, fixed that for you.

    StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return!

    @ ^ jameshanley : I don’t want them destroyed but they sure at good at doing that to themselves.

    Look at their history and the choices they make and the things they do.

    Compare that to say the Tibetans, West Papuans and Chagossians. A few big differences there. Think about it.

    I get Steve Martin’s point, but yeah, we actually do have songs. Good ones, too.

    BTW, all I did to get that to inline was strip off the cruft (“&feature=kp”, etc.), and change the “https” to “http”. No tags, just typed the URL. I actually didn’t know it would inline until I posted.

    @4 I can’t listen to Imagine without hear this mashup anymore.

    It’s a song made to sound uplifting, but is really hateful garbage that is gleeful in the idea of torturing people forever. I couldn’t make it past the 3:10 mark where it started to show its true colors.

    I thought the implication that Yahweh was going to destroy the Earth with fire, along with all those children, in utero and not, that the wingnut profess to be so concerned about, because gays use the rainbow as a symbol, was a particularly nice touch … if you want to gauge just how fucking stupid and hateful these people really are.

    If God is so butthurt over teh geyz appropriating his intellectual property, let him show up and defend it. Letting his minions whine about it is just pathetic.
