There’s a billboard by the highway
That says ‘Welcome to’
But no sign to show you when you go away.
And our demolitions punctuate
All we mean to say, then leave too late.
So I’ll make my shaky exclamation mark
With a hand full of
The crumpled dark.
Fucking signal boost this shit
This is one of the most horrific things happening in the world and yet I can’t seem to find out any news about it.
Ambulances are being shot by tanks. Doctors, civilians, children playing on the beach and everyone else are all being killed.
This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.
But that requires reading. Why would people read when they can just shout out shit that they think they know instead?
Bret’s Muppets demos are amazing. I’m going to need him to do an entire album in his Miss Piggy voice now please.
I’m trying to avoid the soundtrack until after the film comes out, but I caved and listened to this demo.
Bret McKenzie doing a Miss Piggy impression is the best.
This is amazing. I think it’s a damn credit to Bret for doing ALL the voices. And you can (pretty much) tell who he was trying to be for each one, too. I laughed like a maniac in my car hearing him do the bridge.
Ugh. This is such a good song.
Jesus, this is perfect.
