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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
