The whole point of GWAR is pointing out the foolishness of middle america, the religious right, and this ridiculously sensitive, morally facist
culture in which they live and which they seek to codify in law, thereby forcing it upon everyone. GWAR creates this immeasurably, gloriously
offensive fiction around themselves, and revel in the fear and hatred heaped upon them by the people who don't get it.
If you get the chance, and you like them enough to sit through it, check out "The Next Mutation"; it was a DVD GWAR released a while back,
consisting primarily of television interviews with the band and various talk shows. A distinct pattern emerged-- intelligent, classy hosts with senses
of humor got the joke, and enjoyed the hell out of the interview. Bigoted or small-minded ones responded to them out of hand with confusion, derision,
and general assholeishness; they, unlike GWAR's fans, took the band at face value, failing to recognize it for the art that it truly is.
These bible-bashers and their ilk accuse metalheads, stoners, video game players, D&D fans, and pretty much anyone else who doesn't go to church of
not knowing the difference between fantasy and reality. I don't know whether it's funny or it's sad that the religious are the only ones who really
believe that their stories are ultimate truth.
