In the early hours of Thursday morning, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” on CBS featured a guest musical performance with vehemently anti-religious lyrics, including a line wishing the mother of Jesus “would’ve had an abortion.”
Kristeen Young was host Craig Ferguson’s guest, performing her song, “Pearl of a Girl,” which takes all three of the world’s major, monotheistic religions to task for allegedly repressing women.
I never knew I was a girl until they stopped to tell me
I never knew I was disturbed until they dropped three volumes on me
But in the Bible/Torah/Quran there are really no good roles for me except concubine and wash woman
I used to be the sad one now I just wanna stab them it’s so severe its brutal….
They’ve needed to have the law so they can legally bind us
They’ve needed to have the church so they can morally ground us
They’ve needed most of the dough they must be so scared of us
So their stories are of ghosts I only wish the virgin would’ve had an abortion.
