Extreme Christian Groups Out To Get Johnny Depp!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooJohnny Depp

johnny depp babybird

So instead of leading by example and spreading joy and peace this Christmas season, some Christian groups are focused on controversy — specifically stirring the pot when it comes to a Johnny Depp tune they denounce as blasphemous.

As soon as some little birdies told Christian Coalition and Focus on the Family to listen to Jesus Stag Night Club by Babybird, they went ballistic!

The song is a story about some men hiring a Jesus look-a-like for a bachelor party. At the end of the night, the Jesus twinkie ends up passed out drunk. But ohp! Come to find out, this is the real Jesus. Dun dun duunnnn….

Now, what does any of this have to do with Johnny Depp?? Well he lent his voice to the tune. So now leaders from the groups are saying:

I'm sure he thinks he's being very funny, but he's simply a disgrace. One day, Johnny Depp and his cronies will face the judgment of our Lord and they will burn in hell for this filth. We are sickened by Mr. Depp's behavior. Why did he need to record this song? It's a slap in the face to Christians all over the world.

But Babybird frontman Steven Jones rebutted:

Christians go to heaven. Sinners go to hell. This is their message of peace. Oh yes and gays can f–k off too. It's a beautiful world, Jesus.

Every song I've ever written is full to the brim with meaning, and this song takes the idea that if Jesus was around today, he would probably be laying low, like I was, in a Days Inn single room, staying incognito to prevent fueling any religious hatred.

If they were true Jesus lovers, they wouldn't own CD players and iPods, they would be wandering the world preaching love and understanding.

Well said, Stevey!!

If they really wanted to show Johnny the gospel, acting as the judge themselves probably isn't going to do anything for their case!

    And this is why I'm not religious.



  2. 2

    These Christians need to take a step back and realize how much damage they have done by forcing people to believe what they believe. I'm Jewish and damn proud of it cause you don't hear us going on about gays can't get married or you need to do this in order to go to heaven. Its called freedom of speech its in the first amendment you know you the christians made it. I applaud Johnny Depp for expressing his true feelings in his art since thats the best form of art.

    Re: J.rose6 – These Christians need to take a step back and realize how much damage they have done " As compared to the Muslim religion who TODAY are murdering their own men women AND CHILDREN in Allah's name. While i'm not supporting either side of this story, I believe that truth should be told. PEEREX has always been actively anti christian church, don't say otherwise. He like many leftist leaning people believe in free speech as lomg as it is thiers. However when groups dissagree with his agenda he ridicules and berates then for excercising their rights.

    they do have a life, just one that you don't agree with.

    As a Christian, why would I expect someone who doesn't believe in God/Jesus to be respectful towards Him? They don't know any better, and they don't care. So to blatantly say, "He's going to hell!" and make all Christians look awful and judgmental, how about loving others as you love yourself? Which is the greatest commandment God gives us.



  7. 7

    Re: J.rose6 – EXACTLY!!!! I am a christian and it is ridiculous and embarrassing how some Christians jump on everyones shit because they feel offended!!! Not all of us are like facists, I believe that every religion preaches the same - BE AGOOD PERSON and there are bad ones in every religion.

    christians are haters,,,they all need to be crucified…today.
    the romans had it right.



  10. 10

    No one knows who's going to "heaven" or "hell" except God. It's stupid to speculate.



  11. 11

    Unless you are Jesus or God don't speak for Him. And BTW children make mistakes… and are forgiven - be a fisher of men, not a bludgener.



  12. 12

    I'm sure Johnny Depp has other, far more important, issues to think about than a few ranting, rabid extremists who think their feelings are hurt by this song. Religion has a lot to answer for - it has been responsible for more deaths than all wars put together. And now they're going into wailing hysterics about a song? They should get a life.



  13. 13

    Re: becky411 – I totally agree with you! I'm Jewish, but I still agree.
    I don't understand why these Christians are so mad…if they think it's a blasphemy, they shouldn't listen to it. They can't make everyone think the way they think, this is life, everyone has his own opinion.
    Besides, I don't see this song as a "blasphemy" or whatever. They should calm down, it's just a song.



  14. 14

    The Christian Coalition & Focuss On The Family drank the koolaid!
    Where I live they would NOT be considered good Christians.
    We would NOT condemn them to hell like they are doing to others.
    They definitley are in need of some religious teaching.



  15. 15

    It is this kind of ignorant superstitious crap that makes me PROUD TO BE AN ATHEIST.



  16. 16

    I have to say, I love you Perez, and think you're awesome, but I have to call bullshit on you.

    ANY time ANY other religious group feels slighted you defend them. You rage on Mel Gibson constantly, you berate people who express anti-Muslim sentiments and yet you continually bash on Christianity. NOT ALL CHRISTIANS DONT BELIEVE IN GAY MARRIAGE. I am a Christian, and conservative AND have petitioned for gay rights.

    I think its really awful that someone can blatantly put down the religious beliefs of Christians and you defend them, and yet if it's the Jewish faith or Islam, you condemn the offenders. Believe what you believe, but all I'm saying is be fair. If you want to protect people's religious orientation, you gotta protect everyone.



  17. 17

    Re: J.rose6 – I have a question. If someone expressed anti-Semetic sentiments, would you still claim its their freedom of speech?

    I for one, believe that yes we have freedoms, but there is responsibility that comes with them. No one should be put down or mocked because of their faith, be they Christian, Jewish, anything.

    Johnny Depp never said he was a born again christian. His tattoos can speak for that if you read them. All the CC has done is made him alot of money as he laughs and cashes the checks. As far as moonlighting thats his company that recorded babybird at unison and they are so happy about all this great Publicity. So thanks to the bible bumpers they just made him a lot of money. Maybe he will next make a song about child molesting. Opps he already did wait for the next tracks suckers. I assume this is the only song most of you have heard yet. The other CD had failed suicide and babybirds song you're so gorgeous is about someone taking advantage of an underage teen. That was Johnny Depps favorite song before. Wonder why?

    Re: sxy
    SXY or NEOSXY: YOU YOURSELF ARE JUST TOO SCARED & COWARDLY TO GO INTO DETAILS OF YOUR SMEARCAMPAIGN AGAINST JOHNNY DEPP! I thought your comments were "interesting" but meanwhile those have been turned out into ANNOYING charges now. Why don't you change your nicknames into "SHITTY" or so. For you really are NOT "SXY" AT ALL, but EXTREMELY SILLY ONLY!

    Re: sxy – I agree, they wouldn't live out the year if they sang a song about the Islam religion

    Re: FAITH03 – Well Faith dont worry he wont be seeing your comment and thanking you for it. HIs frist rule to himself is not to read post or stuff about himself online. So try as you might the only people are going to see your devotion is the people who post on here or perez. I am sure your name isnt Faith but could be changed to delusional fanatic. I live in West Hollywood and you are probably still in Kansas. The ones that didnt see the Rum Diary and wait for the dvd to come out. Dont judge me and point fingers to me unless you do the same things like the CC does. If he can have freedom of speech then so can I. You only wish you knew and how I know what I know. Tend to your family since you dont know mine. But he does.



  28. 28

    Things are getting a little heated here. Sxy, I think some people don't understand why you don't like Johnny Depp; after all, we see only what the publicity machine allows us to see. I know that no one is perfect, but having read a load of interviews and a couple of (unofficial) autobiographies, I have to say I'm struck by his loyalty to his family and friends, and his kindness - often to complete strangers. I know you have your reasons for feeling the way you do, and of course, that is your business - no one else's. But please, don't let it hold you back from moving forward with your life, or enjoying living where you do - I envy you! I would love to visit Hollywood. I wish you well.

    Re: HumiliatedGrape – Meh, I wanted to send you a private message but apparently it's impossible to do that in Perez Hiltons' site. ]: I wanted to tell you something in private but apparently I just can't.



  30. 30

    Re: iGotNoIdea – Do you belong to any other sites where private messaging is possible? If you do, I'll join so you can contact me. If not, I will set up a temporary email account and post the address here so you can email me. I'll do that tomorrow, as it's 1.45 am here at the moment - a late night because we've been decorating the christmas tree! Have a good evening…



  31. 31

    Re: HumiliatedGrape – I'm sorry I don't belong to any other site, only Israeli one's. If you'll be able to make an Email account it will be great. I really appriciate it! and have fun in your Chritmas preperations (:



  32. 32

    Re: sxy
    Do not challenge me, SXY, and STOP your DIRTY GOSSIP campaign against Johnny Depp, unless you want me to tell the world online what I know about YOU, YOUR MOTIVES of your hatred for Depp, and YOUR HIDDEN IDENTITY…..
    I am not devoted nor a "delusional fanatic". Freedom of speech is quite a different thing than INTENTIONALLY causing damage to somebody's imago. I don't want to offend you but I already know that English is not your mothertongue and you'd a primary schooleducation only. Should I might have hurted you in any way in my irritated comment(s) I herewith DO APOLOGIZE, for I know how profound your feelings of powerlessness is in this really complicated & awkward affair……..But there's also a "third party" at stake who obviously refuses to let go "the big money", so why don't you call that person to account??…..Don't let yourself be MANIPULATED! And again please: stop your harmful comments on Depp or just come out with the REAL truth, the whole issue! No more malicious suggestions, nasty taunts and foggy accusations only. That is "playing with fire" and you finally will burn down YOURSELF! Ehm…oh yeah, Depp is surely surfing on the Net, don't you KNOW that???



  33. 33

    Re: iGotNoIdea – Hello iGotNoIdea - I hope you're having a good day. Here is a new email address I've just set up - please contact me any time you like. Yes, we finished decorating the christmas tree late last night; it's one of the best parts of christmas for me!

    Re: HumiliatedGrape – Never experienced Christmas, but I'm sure it's wonderful. (:
    I'll contact you soon, thanks a lot!



  35. 35

    Well said perez..you are right!.dont judge nobody because you gonna be judge one day too .Byt he way Johnny didnt write and sing this song…he only played the guitar!And that pastor is not a good christian for saying that..he is a FAKE ! The pastor has to forgive him and pray for Johnny…

    Re: FAITH03 – I speak the Kings English. Sure and I bet your name is Faith and you have never been close to Hollywood CA or Hollywood Florida. So Faith just so you know he spends time reading books not your post. He will never thank you or contact you nor will he ask Perez for your email So give it up. If he can have freedom of speech with his music then I have the same right to do so. Seems like you have a agenda yourself which you will never have. He is taken and would have no interest in some fanatical fan. You should listen more and talk less your horns are showing. I can bet you are some fourty something lady with a big weight problem. Not his type lol You might learn something and I can tell you this you wont learn a thing from fansites or those books. If only you did know who I was then you would drop your mess and listen.



  37. 37

    Re: FAITH03 – I'd like to hear the truth about "sxy". Or perhaps, "sxy", why won't you stop saying foggy "facts" and tell everything? aren't you tired of saying crap in so many sites? you really need to find some friends or a hobby…it's just annoying.



  38. 38

    Re: iGotNoIdea – I don't find it annoying, I find it entertaining, it's like reading a Harlequin novel.



  39. 39

    Re: FAITH03 – Like iGotNoIdea, I would also like to hear the truth about sxy. She makes vague, ambiguous statements about Johnny Depp - nasty, malicious insinuations that are just on the edge of being libellous, but never quite making an out-and-out accusation. And when someone challenges what she's saying, her reaction is usually to accuse them of being a 'fanatical fan', and suggesting that they are trying to get close to Mr. Depp. Not so - he has a myriad fans all over the world who love his work, and enjoy his films, as well as admiring what he's done with his life and respecting the man himself because he's a good person. And because I hate hearing these malicious insinuations about him, I would like to know exactly who sxy is, and why she is bitter enough to risk being prosecuted for defamation of character and/or libel. It's time she either tells us the truth about all this, or stops this hate filled campaign against him.

    Re: iGotNoIdea
    Comments 37 & 39: True, it is (MOST) ANNOYING (& harmful for Depp…)! Poor, POOR "SXY"……"Listening" to the written "Kings English" (…w.t.f. is thàt?!) of this mental defective creature I'm getting more and more confident that some mental hospital in "West Hollywood/CA" meanwhile must have beaten to alarm of a patient's breakout…
    It's annoying too because the sites, which have the BAD LUCK to be troubled by this idiot, are already become irreparable filthy with those many malicious SXY-comments.
    I really like to (and I wish I could), but unfortunately I cannot and will not tell you too much about this so called "SXY" for I realize that such might harm other people also, who are mixed up in the matter. And that's the CRUX: "SXY" knows that goodwilling people will be most RESERVED to unveil the whole issue by reasons of some other people's privacy. (To be continued.)



  41. 41

    Re: iGotNoIdea
    Comments 37 & 39:
    But I can ASSURE you that, despite the attempts of the mud-slinger to let us believe so, this "SXY" (a MALE!) is NOT AT ALL a "victim" of Depp! On the contrary, this person is desperately trying to VICTIMIZE JD (with a certain object in view!) And the ONLY ONE who can clarify the whole matter is Johnny Depp himself.
    The only thing I can do is to combat that sick mind with his SAME weapons of sneaky "hints"…..
    However, tell me WHAT EXACTLY you'd like to know: I'll see what I can disclose WITHOUT being injurious to some parties involved.
    Regards from "some fourty something lady with a big weight problem - not his (Johnny's) type"…….(What a bad joke, huh?)



  42. 42

    Re: FAITH03 – Hi there FAITH03, me and HumiliatedGrape thought of a way for asking you some stuff without putting you in an unpleasant situation. We wondered if you would like to send us both emails with any detail you'd like to share with us, so it will be more private. If you don't mind sending us emails, I'll post our email-adresses. Thanks in advance. (:



  43. 43

    If SXY is telling the truth and some of you know who he/she is … I would be very careful how this game is played out… My favorite quote from Benjamin Franklin; "Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead"



  44. 44

    Re: Annie0415 – The only person playing a 'game' is sxy, with his nebulous, malicious comments about Johnny Depp. Those remarks are, as Faith03 says, harmful to Mr. Depp, and sxy has an unfair advantage because Johnny Depp can't respond. Some of the allegations are disgusting, and all are slanderous, but sxy never actually makes the reasons for his hatred clear.
    iGotNoIdea and I appreciate Faith03's responses, and since we don't want to put her in a difficult position, we feel a private conversation might be easier. But in any case, sxy's allegations are not going to pass without being challenged.



  45. 45

    Religion's overrated. Johnny, just tell them to fuck off.



  46. 46

    Re: HumiliatedGrape – I have been reading this thread and I am well aware of SXY's remarks - My comment #39 was more of sarcasm then actually caring about Johnny Depp's personal lifestyle.. I understand your concerns but I think Johnny is more then capable to handle anyone who may try to slander him. My #43 comment was more about being careful how everyone of concern handles this situation.. Secrets can be broken, I don't care how careful you may be in keeping a hot topic secret, someone eventually slips. For example, Faith claims she knows who SXY is, how did she find out? Did someone else have a secret and told her? Looks to me that anyone in the world will soon know SXY's identity is, it's just a matter of time.

    Re: Annie0415 – Correction comment my comment #38

  49. 49

    Re: iGotNoIdea
    Comments 42 & 44: I don't know who you both are (your true identities), so what I can confide to you about the matter is not different than on the Net. (Responding to Annie0415's post: no one is more careful than I am as this affair (in detail) actually is JD's business only and no one else's!) But since I can't stand the "CALCULATED character-assaults" upon Depp by such a SNEAKY creature I'm willing to go that far to "lift a corner of the veil". So if you'd like to "privately" get SOME further information you can post your email-address, but don't expect more than I can say to you.
    And WHAT EXACTLY do you want to hear? Or don't you have any idea yet of what is going on "back-stage"?? In that case I will carefully consider as to how far I can tell you more.
    (HumiliatedGrape & Annie0415: why do you assume I'm a "she/her"?? Do you believe that idiot's deliriousum of a "forty something lady"?! Thank you……)



  50. 50

    Re: FAITH03 – Very true - it's not easy figuring out who is male/female on the net.. so forgive me if I assume wrong… my email is Agravity99@aol.com

    Re: FAITH03 – Hello FAITH03, if you'll send me an email I'll tell you the things I'd like to know exactly. My email is lotan_6@hotmail.com , thank you in advance.



  52. 52

    Re: Annie0415
    Excuse accepted, but did you invited me to contact you at your email-box?? I can't remember so. It's not my intention to send emails to EVERY interested person for (who knows!) he/she could also belong to the "enemy's territory"…..
    Anyway I'll mail to comments nr. 42 & 44 as they seem to be sincerely concerned & sympathetic to Depp.



  53. 53

    Re: FAITH03 – You can make your own judgement call, But I am no enemy. I can and will even give you my full name in email and my background if need be.. If you do send a email please make sure you identify yourself to me so I don't think it's spam… By the way, my name fits what I am .. :) … I am a "she" :) … Thank you!



  54. 54

    Re: FAITH03 – Hi FAITH03, I sent you an email, hope you'll see it soon.
    HumiliatedGrape's email is summercloud@btinternet.com . Thank you for sharing the info with us!



  55. 55

    Re: FAITH03 – Thankyou for your response. I'm sorry I assumed you are female - I just saw the name 'Faith' and came to the (probably wrong) conclusion! iGotNoIdea has posted my email address, so I look forward to hearing from you if you would like to contact me. The last thing I want to do is put anyone in an awkward position, and I certainly don't want to be the cause of any discomfort to anyone connected with this issue. But I would like to see an end to the malicious comments and allegations made by sxy; it isn't fair to slander someone who is not in a position to refute those allegations publicly.



  56. 56

    Re: FAITH03 – I've been thinking about this situation and I would rather not get in the middle of a possible mess.. So please do not send me any emails … Thank you!!

All I state is the facts nothing more nothing less. All of my predictions have been confirmed by his behavior as of lately. Also emailing each other is so outrageous. Believe me Johnny would freak out and think you are more insane and sick they he and I are. LOL At least I am in direct contact with him. You all have got off the subject and the fact is he didnt write the song he only played the guitar.

    Re: iGotNoIdea – I find it funny and outrageous that I have sparked some interest so much so you and a few others have decided to build a hate fanclub on me. Whatever Only the mad ones for me. If you noticed he has left his hankie code alone here lately and traded up to full out events and his college visits only prove my point. Even his friends are worried about his actions of lately with the Vanity Fair to his choices of visiting clubs and openly having a really gay old time. Within a month I can bet his sales of the Rum Diary dvd won't be what he expected. His movie didn't do well since he missed his target audience which is the forty something ladies and he focused on the colleges to promote his movie. His advisors should be fired. Just wait until April when more will come out about what is really going on. Shock and awe I would say and some I told you so.



  61. 61

    Re: sxy – Just when I thought things were calming down…here you are, back again with your nasty insinuations about Mr. Depp. As for your remark about not coming to this site again - well, it would be wonderful if true, but I don't think you can help yourself. Don't concern yourself with Johnny Depp's life - what he does and how he lives is his business - and his alone. It is certainly not yours! My personal opinion is that you are stalking him. I'm sure his security staff have dealt with others like you, and you should be viewed as merely a vindictive little nuisance.



  62. 62

    Re: sxy – I really don't think they have a case of accusing you of stalking.. LMAO I don't think posting comments and opinions on here is considered stalking JD - Don't allow anyone to bully and threaten you.

    Re: sxy
    Look who's talking in his "Kings English"! (I'm "most impressed" of course….)
    I wish NOT EVER AGAIN to hear from you on any site: the only one who's POLLUTING cyber space is YOU!!
    How MANY DAYS did you need to formulate your smutty talks in proper English, hm? Are you already going to have icy feet now?…If you're really "in direct contact with Johnny" THAT ONLY PROVES HOW UNTRUE, SNEAKY & WICKED YOU ARE! For OBVIOUSLY JOHNNY DOES NOT KNOW YET HOW PERFIDIOUS YOU ARE! (Oops, did you made a slip of the tongue perhaps??….)
    Lets hope that JD will soon CRUSH you, for that's exactly what you've deserved.
    And why "waiting until April" since you are so eager to kick this wonderful man to pieces already now! I don't even THINK your intrigues will last out till April….POOR sxy…"the big money" is flowing away from you….isn't that DISASTROUS for your small, VILE ego…



  64. 64

    Re: HumiliatedGrape
    I'll VERY SOON mail you (& Lo) further info; it's like sixty said really "shock and awe" indeed, far worse than stalking…Read that first and henceforth you'll know as to how far you can express your horror and indignation…
