Can you buy her albums online? I don't like black metal, but I kind of want her to have my money.
This. I don't like black metal, and the production on the recordings is extremely bad, so I'd never listen to it, but I'd buy the CD in a heartbeat.
Sorry, can't agree. I mean, standing up for a cause you believe in under threat of death can be admirable. But not when the cause is simply bashing/disrespecting something that is sacred to millions of people.
As I said. Burning the Qu'ran - hardly productive, not a solution, don't want to burn it any more than I'd want to burn the Bible. But however pointless the act of aggression, I think the most important thing is that she should be allowed to express it, and she's not. Under penalty of death.
That's bollocks - I wouldn't want anyone killed for saying it any more than I'd want anyone killed for saying "burn the Bible."
I don't like what she's saying, but I have so, so much respect that she's willing to risk death to say it. It shouldn't be that way, and to take a stand and call such a monumentally corrupt regime on its bullshit is ultimately something I hugely approve of. She should be making a fuss. If someone is so irrational that they're willing to kill
over that lyric, then that person absolutely deserves to be offended, again and again and again, and repeatedly called on their bullshit, until such time as they're either reduced to a gibbering husk or learn that they can, against all odds, carry on with their life without even commiting a single murder.
Honestly, though, the woman just sings. Admittedly, that's taking a fairly loose definition of the word sing, but she doesn't kill, she doesn't maim, she doesn't injure. That's more than can be said of the people who use the teachings of that book to manipulate people. And she should be allowed
to sing it. Muse - composers of the official song of the 2012 Olympic Games - sing "aim, shoot, kill your leaders" in one of their songs, and that album reached number one. This shouldn't be an issue. The fact that it is
punishable by death means that the song needs to be sung. I admire it not for its message - which I agree is very crude and quite crass - but as a much-needed symbol of defiance.
It's not about the opinion, it's about her having the right to express it.
