The so-called evil piano
2/13/2008 1:41:59 PM
I want to make a few remarks (about time, since I promised one of my reviewers) about my recent post "The Evil Piano."
I don't know what people felt when they read it, but I just wanted to explain why.
I was impressed when I heard the news that the piano John Lennon used to write the song "Imagine" was on display at the Murrah Building Memorial on April 19, 2007, the 12th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, and that it had been to places like Ground Zero in the past.
I am impressed because I felt this was a nice gesture. However, since I'm a Christian, I thought that there might be some consternation on the part of some beacause a) It was the piano used in the writing of a rock song and b) Some of the lyrics in "Imagine" might be frowned on by someone of my religous beliefs.
On the other hand, I have times when I thonk some of John Lennon's sentiments in "Imagine" are understandable. Were not incidents like the 9/11 attacks and the Oklahoma City bomibng spanwed in part due to twisted notions of religous devotion and patriotism?
Please accept my apologies if my words were misinterpreted.
Sometimes, I wish that we Christians could look in our hymnals and find some means of showing the more merciful side of our faith in these situations
