Satire, or the real thing?
I’ve been trying to find out whether or not this is actually parody, but it seems that Poe’s Law is in full effect yet again. His website gives no clear indication as to the intent of the music, and no one has actually come out clearly stating whether or not it’s real. The problem, as you might have guessed, is that some people go so far with their parody it’s almost impossible to distinguish satire from the real thing. I regard this kind of ambiguity with a bit of disdain; if you can’t make it obvious that you ARE satire, then what exactly is the point? You may think yourself terribly clever for tricking people, but your message will be interpreted differently by different people. It’s why gay groups still find this video offensive, even if it was meant for parody, simply because the message is not significantly different from what Evangelical Christians already preach. I’ll let you decide what category this falls on. Either way, it’s pretty damn hilarious!
