Someone Doesn't Get the Joke

Posted by: Deborah Remus (05/20/11)
Living With Lions' new record, Holy Shit, has caused some controversy due to the album artwork and because it was indirectly supported by the Canadian government through FACTOR.
From the Article“The content of this CD is offensive and the fact that it is clearly designed to offend a group of Canadians based on their faith is simply wrong,” James Maunder, Moore’s spokesman, said in a statement sent to The Vancouver Sun. “The Minister has called Duncan McKie, president and CEO of FACTOR to express his profound disappointment with this content.”

Oh Canada.....also can we get a US version of factor so that maybe the good bands can start making albums again instead of rebecca black?

an LA based blog jumps to the defense of Christianity in the face of (harmless) irreverence?

There are a lot of people out there that take things way too seriously.

Record is solid though.
