UPDATE: Leary Video Pulled From Youtube

Almost as soon as people started filing complaints, Viacom pulled the Denis Leary song mocking the Church from Youtube. Good work - but I think we still need to have our voices heard and file complaints with the people I listed in the last post.

For those who missed the video let me first set the scene. Leary is first of all visibly mad and angry. It is supposed to be a comedy show, but no one that you see in the crowd is really laughing. Someone wrote a review and asked a good question - what would you need to ADD to these lyrics to make them hate speech?

Here are some of the lyrics:

"Bless me, Father, for I have sinned--yeah, pull down my pants and put your penis in."

"Thou shalt not kill and Thou shalt not lie, and don't drop the soap when the pope is nearby. Cause they may hate gays but they do love the guys."

"Well, the nuns are goin' down on other nuns, and the priests are chasin' after altar boy buns, and the pope will move you when the damage is done."

"Jesus, Mary and Josephine, well this church is full of some giant queens, so break out the candles and the Vaseline."

...introduced by Pope Benedict proclaiming, "Oh yeah, I'm the f***ing pope, for Christ's sake, the god**** Führer."
