Everyone is blogging about Derek Webb's song from his new album Stockholm Syndrome. The song is 'What Matters More?'. It's getting lots of press in the Christian realm because of the two dirty words that are used in the song.
I first listened to the song when it was posted on my friend Ben's blog. And true to form, Ben's post got me all riled up. Not because of the swear words. *gasp* But because of the subject matter. The song addresses the churches treatment of homosexuals in a rather 'in your face' kinda way. I never expected that song to strike such a deep chord with me, but it did. Below is the paraphrase of the comment I left on Ben's blog where the title of his post was: WE NEED THE CONTROVERSY.
Wow. The thoughts behind that song really ticked me off. I didn't even know I really had an opinion on the matter. Thanks Ben for turning me on to that song. :)
You can listen to the ever so 'shocking' and controversial song here. But be forwarned!!!! You will here the nasty versions of the words Darn and Poop. Really!
And if you do listen to the song, honestly ask yourself "What matters more to you?"
