A bit of musical hypocrisy

I really dislike the song "Imagine" by John Lennon. Horrid false doctrine - the song drives me nuts.

And yet, I really enjoy the song One Vision by Queen, which includes the following lyrics which are just as heretical:

No wrong no right
Im gonna tell you theres no black and no white
No blood no stain
All we need is one world wide vision

Of course, isn't One Vision sort of the LCMS theme. . . not the song or the ideals. . . mostly. . . but the phrase "One Vision"?

It's a good thing I wasn't elected to go to Convention this time around -- I might have yelled "Fried Chicken!" at the top of my voice at the end of the opening presentation.

That's not so bad. They might throw you out if you started making those breathy demonic synth noises at the beginning. :)
