too long, didn't finish it.. those two seem competent but not too focused on discussing the actual song, anyway..

The guy pretty much nails it around 21:20. The song- especially by BR standards- isn't anti-Christian. It's more about refashioning Jesus into a nationalist, capitalist figure to sell war and Pop Tarts. At least that's how I always viewed the song. 

Having a "white nationalists react to American Jesus" video would probably bring more drama.

Also, don't askciv to interpret a br song but now I'm thinking... I can stand to say i just don't care. If weed wasn't legal here you'd know the rest.

These two are poor spokesmen for Christianity.

Glad to see, though, that even after 26 years, BR songs are still thought provoking.
