"I only wish the Virgin would've had an abortion," was belted out in a song by musical guest Kristeen Young on CBS's The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. "The song," according to Young, "is about the centuries of religious persecution of women."
It's ironic that a radical feminist rails against Christianity on national TV when it was Christ who elevated women in ways that have led women in the West to enjoy more freedom and opportunity than what women in non-Christian nations could ever imagine. Can you imagine a woman singing an anti-Mohammed song in Saudi Arabia?
Young last week performed her song, "Pearl of a Girl," which attacks Judaism, Christianity and Islam as if they are all the same in so far as the treatment of women. In the first verse of her song, Young sang, "But in the Bible/Torah/Quran, there are really no good roles for me except concubine and wash woman. I used to be the sad one, now I just wanna stab them."
In the second verse she explicitly rails against Christ. "They've needed to have the law so they can legally bind us/ They've needed to have the church so they can morally ground us/ They've needed most of the dough, they must be so scared of us/ So their stories are of ghosts; I only wish the Virgin would've had an abortion."
Young also designs her own stage costumes and said, "I felt like wearing and making something satanic." The skirt she wears in the video for "Pearl of a Girl" has the symbols of three major religions, but they are all defaced. There is an upside-down cross and she wears high heels shaped like upside-down crosses. This is a symbol commonly associated with satanism.
