As an artist and musician, I tend to be political in a somewhat roundabout way. Not that I avoid political issues, but for me, creating art is my focus; I spend a good deal of time reflecting on the delicate human ecology of which politics is part, and crafting those ideas into forms that have emotional impact. Politics, by my reckoning, is the art of acquiring and maintaining power over others, whether the scale be interpersonal or international.
But making a statement about political issue is itself a political act, and I'm fine with jumping into the fray as a gadfly. When my band decided we would take on organized religion through the ages, we didn't want to pull any punches. So we went to a good friend of ours: Jamie Dewolf: poet, filmmaker, and the great grandson of Scientology's founder, L.Ron Hubbard. He was the perfect choice to direct our music video "Sweet Shit of Christ". I hope it makes you laugh, think, or both. Feel free to share it with friends, or the hypocritical demagogue in your neighborhood.
