Recently, some Nashville musician folk (Jars of Clay, Mercy Me, Thousand Foot Crutch, Matt Maher, etc.) posted a video to YouTube covering The Beatles’ “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” live I might add. The hubs has worked with some of these folks before, and we’ve been lucky enough to call some of them and their families friends. They’re good peeps–trust–talented musicians, and clearly, funny to boot. The lighthearted, silly video has been getting some major playage and (some angry) comments. Where’s the harm in such a video, you might ask? What’s the big deal?
Did I mention those crazy kids in the video are from “Christian bands?” Though I’m pretty sure they’d be happier to just be called a “band,” seeing as Christian music isn’t actually a genre. Details, details.
So they made this great video while on tour, and some people don’t like the video because some of the people in the video are Christians. More like they hate the video. Well, actually, they dislike the video and hate Christians. OR maybe they just hate God. Or all of the above.
Sad that so many have been judged and alienated by Christians. Sad that Christians are being judged and alienated in turn. Sad stuff all around.
Which is funny, considering how funny the video is. Maybe we should all just lighten up a wee bit and don a fake mustache. I’m game.
It’s just a funny video, so enjoy! The Kool-Aid comes later…
