Video: Finally, Westboro Baptist gets a theme song

by Jeremy Hooper

There is some debate about whether this is a horrible joke, or just a horrible vocal expression of horrible sentiment. Either way -- it's pretty horrible:

If it's a joke, then this man, Donnie Davies, has created an impressively elaborate ruse. If it's legit, then his delusions are just as all-encompassing. One thing, however, is for certain: "F***ed up" does not begin to describe the type of mentality that would lead to this video's creation!

Oh, and P.S.: Isaiah Washington's people want you to know he had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with this!!!

The Bible Says [YouTube]

**Oh, and be sure to check out Mr. Davies' website, where he recommends what bands and artists he thinks are "safe" for your kids, and which he views as "gay bands." Somehow we think the very pro-gay Cyndi Lauper would be quite distraught to learn that she's made the "safe" list. Perhaps Mr. Davies missed that time when Ms. Lauper turned herself into a human pride flag:



****UPDATE, 1/25: Have we found the real Mr. Davies?

Your thoughts

That's vile. I don't know...I went to the website, and it seems like it's a genuine bit of obscenity.

Can I get some Purell? Ewwww!

OMG! Seriously first reaction when i heard the chorus? Burst out laughing. WTF is wrong with this dude? For so very much hating gays, he sure seems like one, i dont think I can hit those notes. Yea- wow. I 'love' how it seems all like Christian and shit and then he bursts into the whole "God hates fags".....wow.

Posted by: Molly | Jan 22, 2007 6:18:49 PM

Dude, VILE and HILARIOUS. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. If it is real, damn. Damn, damn.

I watched the video and kept thinking "God, I hope this is a joke". I went to the website, and I don't think it is. Its one of those things that would be funny except for the fact that it affects the lives or real people. I have to say that I think even James Dobson and Pat Robertson would cringe from that song.

Did you catch who was on the list of bands who are homosexual influences on children? The Doors? Cole Porter?!!!!

Clearly not a joke - sadly I think. And WHAT is with his labeling Oscar Wilde as a "reformed" homosexual - what, because the man converted to Catholocism on his deathbed it makes him "ex-gay"? Not to mention including Metallica, which may be the most hetero band EVER, as a "gay band" - clearly clueless.

Posted by: CPT_Doom | Jan 22, 2007 9:24:58 PM

I almost said that he looked like a 'fag' on there, but then I would just be spreading the hate. Watch his other youtube vid, if he doesn't scream "MO!" then fairies will fly out of my ass.

Posted by: Paul | Jan 22, 2007 11:09:27 PM

Wow. It shows how truly far-gone the far right-wing is: you honestly can't tell a parody from the real thing anymore, and I thought O'Reilly/Colbert was bad...

I've watched the guy's other video on youtube, and I'm leaning towards parody, but it is dang close. He's not going so far as to make it obvious, which is makes it all the worse (better?).

Posted by: torrentprime | Jan 22, 2007 11:39:51 PM

Wow. this guy has serious issues. He actually thinks that his song is going to be a hit? I think only in his little world, it will be. I don't think his song will get any further than Youtube.

Posted by: Sam | Jan 23, 2007 12:21:23 AM

This is not a joke. Go to: http://www.lovegodsway.org

Ex-gays. Ugh.

What is amusing is their list of gay bands! Metallica made that list (is anyone actually gay in that band?).

Posted by: notl33t | Jan 23, 2007 7:58:58 AM

Come on people, you can't honestly believe this is serious. It's clearly a parody. Ravi Shankar and Frank Sinatra on the list of "gay bands"? I know it's a sensitive subject for us, but have we completely lost our perspective? (Not to mention our sense of humor?)

Posted by: ezwriter | Jan 23, 2007 4:43:18 PM

Unfortunately the song, the band, the websites--- it's just too complex to be a ruse. The guy is for real. You better believe it. The are indeed people out there like him.

Posted by: Bruce | Jan 23, 2007 4:56:27 PM

It is too elaborate NOT to be a ruse.

Posted by: tony | Jan 23, 2007 9:10:33 PM

Hey, i see the youtube video has been deleted. I uploaded it and only found it it was deleted today.
Its still hosted here though:

Posted by: Xihilisk | Jan 24, 2007 7:44:09 AM

Oh please, it's not serious. If it was for real it'd have a lot more concrete information on the website(s), like about the whole C.H.O.P.S. thing, a street address or at least a mailing address, probably a phone number and, of course, most oddly lacking, a request for financial support! What kind of oddball Christian ministry isn't looking for a hand out? There's stuff about a "national network of online Christian ministries" but no info on how to get in touch with them other than a gmail address. Jeez, how tough do you think it is to put up a few fairly decently designed websites anyway?

I'm not really sure what the project is all about at this point, maybe promoting some movie, or maybe just promoting the project itself in a more nebulous way (think lonelygirl15). There's clearly some money being spent on the thing, but to what end it's not clear. Anyway, bottom line for me: it's hilarious.

Oh, and the video can still be viewed here: http://www.eveningservice.com/Video

Posted by: andrew | Jan 24, 2007 8:34:23 AM

if you do a WHOIS on his website and the 2 others it links to, it's very clear it's all fake. For example, eveningservice.com claims they just signed with lovegodsway.org and if you look them up they were both registered the same day (oct 25th) using GoDaddy and domainsbyproxy.com to hide his personal information.

FAKE!

Posted by: Sean | Jan 24, 2007 10:37:53 AM

If you were singing "god hates fags" would you give out your address???

Posted by: Xihilisk | Jan 24, 2007 12:38:07 PM

oh and to the person who said "theres clearly been some money spent on this". Incorrect.
I found the video, and posted it on myspace and youtube. It was deleted off Youtube within 24 hours, but before that their myspace had less than 200 views total, and the video that was embedded on their site had less than 100 views. I posted it on myspace and linked it on a few sites like Digg etc and it went from there.
If this is fake, they were doing an extremely shit job in marketing it. Its new found fame is down to me.

Posted by: Xihilisk | Jan 24, 2007 12:42:37 PM

Obviously they're not spending money on promotion. With a song and video so brilliantly designed to offend everyone they can rely on people like you, Xihilisk, to spread the word for free. I suspect that this is part of the concept of the project anyway--to just let it happen in an ad hoc, "viral" way.

What I meant about spending money was the production costs for the song, video and websites. It's certainly cheesy but the song is well-produced from a technical standpoint, same with the video. These things usually cost money (musicians, studio time, engineers, video crew, editing, etc.). The websites, not so much, but someone probably got paid something to do it, even if they just used a template--check this out:

I'm actually quite curious about the time line of how this video has spread. Would you mind sharing when and how you first found it?

Posted by: andrew | Jan 24, 2007 1:58:29 PM

Folks, don't get too bent out of shape, THIS IS A JOKE. The point, I suspect, is to illustrate just how bizarrely the church deal with the subject at hand. If you think this is real then YOU are part of the joke and the illustration.
