Folks, the controversial part was at the end. Certain people (rabid fundamentalists, no doubt) argued that at the very end, the song said, "Jesus of Nazareth, go to hell....".

Of course, that was really Mutt playing around, saying, "Yes it does, it does, bloody hell".

Of course, our new friend Chaos is just fucking around with The Eagles, which is kind of amusing, if a bit forced, but.........if I may get on my soapbox for a sec:

I think reading more into songs than is actually there can be very seductive for certain people. If you're a fanatic and think devil worshippers are running rampant, then it'll make you feel good to identify The Enemy. Christian or Catholic fanatics are very prone to trying to find that sort of thing. I think it's a load of dung. Granted, many musicians are devil worshippers indeed, but 99% of theses guys are just blatant about it and will go to death metal with lyrics explicitly expressing their satanic thoughts.

Personally, I think it's wonderful to have religious beliefs that express love towards a higher being and your fellow man, etc, etc. I believe in God and so on - in principle, religion is awesome. But I think that the people who take it too far and become aggressive and insane (i've met my fair share) are some of the lowest lifeforms this planet has to offer. They try to fill intellectual or emotional voids in their lives by latching on to extreme notions they try to impose on others. There's tons of these ignorant people, tons...but it's a far more veiled form of insanity since they try to portray themselves as operating within the framework of established religion. And that, my friends, is a worse form of poison than a handful of crazy devil worshippers.

Cheers,

Jack.
