Rebecca Black has generated a lot of buzz with her stage parent induced fame on Youtube. While some jerks in the opinion columns have trashed her, I think she's just fine singing about age-appropriate things.
However, just like everything else, her song Friday has been exploited to commercial ends by others. While Rebecca has participated voluntarily in a comedic portrayal for funny Or Die, someone else has taken her work and twisted it into something entirely different.
Community Christian Churches has released an unauthorized version to promote their religious organization. The CCC are a group of ultra-fundamentalist preachers that believe in a triune God and early indoctrination of children that includes teaching them to tell others that non-Christians go to a literal, fiery Hell. They also believe that the End is near and that Jesus will return in the flesh to guide selected worthy believers into the gates of a very real physical heaven. Additionally, members believe that the Christian Bible is absolutely literal, from the beginning of the world in 6 days 6, 000 years ago to Noah's Ark and more.
These folks are the child-confusing, evolution-denying, megachurch that scares the crap out of sane people. And they are violating one of those Big Ten Commandments by STEALING something from someone else. What's more- they're proud of it, bragging on their website about the number of hits their video has received. Naturally, they call it a comedic portrayal to justify their theft, but I see nothing funny here. I feel sorry for "Sadie Black" here because you can tell she's never had a free thought in her young life. As for the real Rebecca, I wonder if this multi-ethnic offspring of two scientists is thrilled with being pirated by an extremist group.
Watch it if you can stand it and don't forget to make a *huge* donation to the offering bag.
