Satire. Got to be. Follow me and together we'll C.H.O.P.S away the Gay.
No way is this guy serious. The song includes references to "going through the front door instead of the back" and getting on your knees.
Oh, and Frank Sinatra is on the gay list, as well as Elton John, who is listed twice because he's "really gay."
Also, from the band's homepage: We live not too far from the chemical plants in Baytown and sometimes being so close to that kind of industry creates intense self-reflection, which is what we are all about.
Yeah, I'm calling bullshit on this guy (he says he's from New Orleans, so I'm gonna ask around about him) just from this paragraph alone:
Oscar Wilde, my hero, was a reformed homosexual. He went to prison for his sins. Once he was alone with his thouhgts, in jail, he saw the errors of his ways and repented. He died as a Christian. While I'm not advocating jailing all Homosexuals, I do think it would benefit them greatly. It would be for their own good. When a person is forced to think they will generally be able to see their problems and solve them by themselves.
It's DEFINITELY a joke. The sites are professionally done with unprofessional content. A real organization would have a phone number and an address, not just a gmail account. The band site would have info about its members. There's not a single Bible verse quoted on any of the sites, and there are pictures of rosary beads. Most ex-gay organizations are evangelical, not Catholic.
Also, there are several little things that make me think it's a joke by someone who knows the evangelical world inside and out. If you read Davies' bio, he says his father was an "Anabaptist in Houston." There are very, very few people who would describe themselves as Anabaptists in Texas or Louisiana. Organizations like this wouldn't discuss corruption and scandal (and link to the Wikipedia entry on "Ted Haggard") in the GOP. No self-described reformed homosexual would list Oscar Wilde as a hero. Cyndi Lauper as a "safe band"? Lots of hipster indie bands that most evangelicals have never heard of? The band is called EVENING SERVICE (which may be the funniest double entendre ever)? Puh-lease.
