Is This For Real?

Jim Burroway

January 23rd, 2007

Oh my God. Either it’s a parody that’s too subtle to be obvious, or it’s for real and disturbingly hateful. If it’s the latter, then hateful’s the word — his word, not mine:

Lord help them hear me and
make clear my voice.
‘Cos being gay
is nothing but a choice.

God hates a fag.
God hates a fag.
God hates a fag.
If you’re a fag he hates you too.

Here’s the video. What do you think? Is Donnie Davies for real?

Looking over his website, Davies looks pretty serious. Although I got a laugh when I saw him divide several popular musicians into “safe” and “gay” categories. Cindi Lauper? She’s “safe”.

Update: The video has been removed from YouTube due to a terms of use violation. But you can still see it at Google Video. Also, Warren Throckmorton confirmed that, no, it is not a parody. Sick. It’ll be interesting to see how many anti-gay activists distance themselves from this revolting stunt.

Update 2: Andrew Sullivan concluded that it’s “a brilliant piece of performance art. So brilliant it illuminates what it satirizes more deeply than any argument could.” If he’s right, my hat’s off to Donnie Davies. That Cindi Lauper reference may be our clue. On the other hand, it could be just another example of Davies’ cluelessness. Meanwhile, his website promises another video this evening. Genius or madman? We’ll find out soon.

Update 3: The video has now been removed from Google Video as well. And it looks like his MySpace page has been deleted. So if anyone knows where I can get a copy of the video, please let me know. Meanwhile, you can find the full lyrics here:

The Bible Says (God Hates A Fag)

Tell me straight to fight temptation.
Lord, lead me into your salvation.
The Bible says as plain as day,
with a man you shall not lay.

Lord you are my strength.
Fill me with your love.
Help me fight these feelings,
help me rise above.

Lord help them hear me and make clear my voice,
‘cuz being gay is nothing but a choice.

God hates a fag.
God hates a fag.
God hates a fag.
If you’re a fag he hates you too.

Read the Bible and you’ll be sure
to enter Heaven, there’s no back door.
Righteous man, get on your knees.
There lies no virtue in sodomy.

Lord you are my shield.
Sustain me through the fight,
a shelter from the urges
and help me see the light.

You filthy sinners should just let me be,
cuz Jesus, my Savior’s, the only man for me.

God hates a fag.
God hates a fag, yes he does!
God hates a fag.
If you’re a fag he hates you too.

Lord you are my strength.
Fill me with your love.
Help me fight these feelings.
Help me rise above.

Lord help them hear me and make clear my voice,
‘cuz being gay is nothing but a choice.

God hates a fag
God hates a fags
God hates a fags
If you’re a fag he hates you too.
He hates, he hates you too!

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
