Riff: Brad Paisley – “Those Crazy Christians”

Apr 8, 2013

No, they ain’t the late night party kind/They curse the devil’s whiskey while they drink the Savior’s wine

from Those Crazy Christians lyrics by Brad Paisley

Churchgoer Paisley doesn’t seem an obvious candidate to examine the contradictions of his faith. But sung from the perspective of a sceptic, he doesn’t pull any punches, questioning everything from TV preachers to those who see a funeral as merely an excuse to bake another casserole.
