Don’t Need No Heathen Jesus: Everclear Punks Bill O’Reilly

I guess it was part of O’Reillys’ “War on Christians” schtick, but check out this interview with Everclear lead singer Art Alexakis. Or maybe this is O’Reillys attempt at being hip?

O’REILLY: All right. Joining us now from Portland, Oregon, is the front man for Everclear, Art Alexakis.
In this video, Jesus is portrayed as having an orgy, meeting strippers, knocking out an old lady, stealing her necklace, stealing from a homeless man, drinking, driving at the same time. What’s the point?
ART ALEXAKIS, LEAD SINGER, EVERCLEAR: He was drinking holy water.
O’REILLY: Whatever. What’s the point?
ALEXAKIS: Actually, brother, to be honest with you, that’s not Jesus.
O’REILLY: OK. So the horns on and — yes.
ALEXAKIS: Your assumption that it’s — Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill, it’s not Jesus. That’s a representation of my idea — first of all, this is a breakup song, right? This is a song, went through a divorce a couple of years ago. The whole work is dealing with that breakup.

This next bit cracks me up:

O’REILLY: But that’s your crew watching this thing. The video features the heathen version of Jesus, dubbed Hater Jesus?
ALEXAKIS: Where did you get heathen?
O’REILLY: Well, this is just a description of it. And the video is dedicated to Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson.
ALEXAKIS: That is true. You finally said something honest and true.
O’REILLY: I’m just trying to get to the bottom of this. A little confused.

There you have it, dedicating a video to Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson makes Jesus a heathen! Sounds like a superhero in the making “Heathen Jesus, making the world safe for Cthulhu minions”…

  1. Good gracious, does anybody listen to O’Reilly anymore.

  2. All I can say is “WTF”?
    Sometimes I think O’Reilly is like one of my random computer programs (http://www.seventhsanctum.com/). Just combine a few words and phrases and bam – he gets people riled up. I don’t know if he can speak about something normally.
    Makes me want to see the video though.

    I don’t know about that, but I didn’t think anyone but me was still listening to Everclear.

    It is rather amusing.
