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:

Massive music fan, Johnny Depp, is launching Unison Music, his own record label, and has hired talent scouts to help look for new talent in the UK.
He made the decision after helping British band Babybird produce their new record by supplying the funds for studio time and even played on some of their tracks.
A source says that "Johnny has always been passionate about music. He's taking a really hands-on approach to signing acts. Obviously he can't get to as many gigs as he would like but he's got a good team around him and will personally vet any signings that they make."
Fantastic idea! We can't wait to hear who he lines up!

Ha! Damn right!
You don't mess with Captain Jack Sparrow!
Johnny Depp was apparently hanging with his friend, Babybird's Stephen Jones, when the two were almost mugged!
However, things took a pretty comical turn when the mugger recognized the SEKSI actor!
A source says:
"It was an extremely scary moment. This guy looked off his head. Johnny looked him straight in the eyes and told him to back off. The guy was OK. He looked at Johnny and said, 'I ain't stealing from Captain Jack' and put the bottle down. Johnny gave him a few bucks and told him to straighten up his life."
And Johnny gave him cash after?! Wow! That's the last thing we'd want to do for someone who just tried to steal our shiz!
What a stand-up guy!

Johnny Depp is apparently going to fulfill his dreams of rock stardom this summer by touring with the British band Babybird as their guitarist!
The group apparently was originally hesitant to have him, because of the crazy fandom that no doubt will ensue, but sources are now confirming that two former members of the special armed forces will be present to make sure no one gets too crazy!
The insider says:
"These guys are experts in restraint. They don't mess about and can handle any situation."
Wow! We wonder if Johnny will be able to keep up! He'll be playing gigs and festivals with the group during June and July!
What do U think?? Would U want to see Johnny break it down with Babybird??
