    Anything by bill maher. He currently has a show on HBO. I think you would get a kick out of his movie Religiousity (something close to that spelling). It is a hoot! Bill is an unapologetic atheist and a pretty funny comedian. Also, I loved your ‘why I hate Jesus’ explanation on your website. Great stuff!

    I love “Dark Matter” and Randy Newman.

    Most True Believers lack any sense of irony or humor.

    David Bazan had an entire album devoted to his deconversion. Noteworthy songs were Hard To Be and When We Fell

    Bruce,
    Wednesday I went to see the movie ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, the story of the band Queen, focusing on their lead singer Freddie Mercury. Although I grew up IFB, at home I was permitted to listen to secular music, have ‘hippie’ hair and attend school dances. Thus, Queen was one of the bands that I really liked to listen to when I could.
    While doing some browsing in YouTube this week I stumbled across a channel called ‘Good Fight Ministries’ (link to their about page): https://www.youtube.com/user/goodfightministries/about
    Link to the “man of god” behind the ministry: https://www.goodfight.org/about/joe-schimmel/
    And finally a link to their ‘expose’ on Queen, Freddy Mercury and the Devil’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrIzs6v1HOA&t=875s
    Thought this would look good under the “Sounds of Fundamentalism” series and as you can see there are a plethora of ‘Satan inspired music performers’ covered by this ridiculous channel devoted to a mythical being!
    In the Queen expose there is reference to 2 songs that I’d like to submit under “Songs of Sacrilege” series.
    1. Great Rat King – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHC85XWII7E
    a. Lyrics
    Aah, aah
    In the land where horses born with eagle wings
    And honey bees have lost their stings
    There’s singing forever, ooh yeah
    Lion’s den with fallow deer
    And rivers made from wine so clear
    Flow on and on forever
    Dragons fly like sparrows thru’ the air
    And baby lambs where Samson dares
    To go on on on on on on
    My fairy king can see things
    He rules the air and turns the tides
    That are not there for you and me
    Ooh yeah he guides the winds
    My fairy king can do right and nothing wrong
    Ah, then came man to savage in the night
    To run like thieves and to kill like knives
    To take away the power from the magic hand
    To bring about the ruin to the promised land, aah, aah
    They turn the milk into sour
    Like the blue in the blood of my veins
    Why can’t you see it
    Fire burning in hell with the cry of screaming pain
    Son of heaven set me free and let me go
    Sea turn dry, no salt from sand
    Seasons fly no helping hand
    Teeth don’t shine like pearls for poor man’s eyes, aah
    Someone, someone has drained the colour from my wings
    Broken my fairy circle ring
    And shamed the king in all his pride
    Changed the winds and wronged the tides
    Mother Mercury Mercury
    Look what they’ve done to me
    I cannot run, I cannot hide
    La la la la la la la la la la la la
    Songwriters: Freddie Mercury
    2. One Vision – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OGd4gplxQM
    a. Lyrics
    One man one goal one mission,
    One heart one soul just one solution,
    One flash of light yeah one god one vision
    One flesh one bone,
    One true religion,
    One voice one hope,
    One real decision,
    Wowowowo gimme one vision
    No wrong no right,
    I’m gonna tell you there’s no black and no white,
    No blood no stain,
    All we need is one world wide vision
    One flesh one bone,
    One true religion,
    One voice one hope,
    One real decision,
    Wowowowowowo
    I had a dream,
    When I was young,
    A dream of sweet illusion,
    A glimpse of hope and unity,
    And visions of one sweet union,
    But a cold wind blows,
    And a dark rain falls,
    And in my heart it shows,
    Look what they’ve done to my dream
    Vision,
    Give me your hands,
    Give me your hearts,
    I’m ready,
    There’s only one direction,
    One world and one nation,
    Yeah one vision
    No hate no fight,
    Just excitation,
    All through the night,
    It’s a celebration wowowowo yeah
    One one one
    One flesh one bone,
    One true religion,
    One voice one hope,
    One real decision
    Gimme one night,
    Gimme one hope,
    Just gimme,
    One man one man,
    One bar one night,
    One day hey hey,
    Just gimme gimme gimme
    Fried chicken
    Songwriters: Brian May / Freddie Mercury / John Deacon / Roger Taylor

    In Atheist love,
    Jeff Brown
