I’m not sure I can think of a better way to spend Mother’s Day than by going to a church to be turned on to a blaspheming rapper who regularly drops the F-Bombs, takes the Lord’s name in vain, and objectifies women in his music. I mean, isn’t this the kind of role model our children need in church these days?
Well, that’s Church by the Glades, again. Church by the Glades has gained notoriety for its provocative and secular performances, incorporating elements like the Stormtrooper Dance, Disney Medleys, and covers of Beyonce’s Freedom—and most recently, the church performed a live rendition of Kendrick Lamar’s profanity-laden N95, which is rife with obscenities, blasphemy, and objectification of women.
So why not sanitize a version of Lunch Money Lewis’s song, Mama, and feed it to the goats at Church by the Glades? If you’re brave, you can check out the lyrics of one of Lunch Money Lewis’s other songs, Bills, and you will instantly see that this is precisely not the kind of role model churches should be parading on stage for their kids. And while the song they performed was a different song, the original lyrics in the song still contained profanity. For example, they changed the phrase “whooped my a**” to “whooped my tail.”
But I don’t care if they sanitized the lyrics, you can put perfume on poop, it’s still poop. The problem is now kids will like that song, go home and YouTube this clown, and listen to his other blasphemy, profanity-ridden words of death when they should be going home and opening the Bible to read the words of life instead.
Here’s a clip of the performance:
