Sufjan Rove

From his song, Come on! Feel the Illinoise!
"Oh God of progress.
Have you degraded or forgot us?
Where have your laws gone?
I think about it now."
It's clear. Pat Robertson has infiltrated the hipster cutting edge music scene, and convinced Sufjan Stevens to try and subconciously get us to legislate morality by lyrically blaming the degredation of the world on the loss of Godly morality. I see right through you Sufjan.

Ummm ... I think he MAY be talking about the Old Testament God here and how Christians tend to look for rules instead of embracing the "new law" of Christ. Or something.

Man, I hope you're not currently leading a Bible study.

Seriously, if you're gonna be outraged by what Sufjan has to say, there are plenty of better lyrics to use.

Man, anonymous really took you seriously. Woooooshhhh...

(on a side note, I think Sufjan is brilliant for somehow reinventing Christian rock into Christian indie folk and making it cool, all at once.)

If you didn't read my follow up on my blog about his Christmas album, I said it's got a handful of great songs (mostly on Disc V, called "Peace"). Either buy that disc on iTunes or get the whole box set with fancy artwork at your local music depot.

Man, how on Earth can someone read that without sarcasm? That is wild. Yes, Jeff, your tip caused me to go out and get the Christmas box set that day. It's amazing. That cat is crazy.
