I watched the SNL parody on the television of ICP's song Miracles before I was aware of the actual song. After discovering the source of the parody, I was beside myself at how little SNL had to do to parody this. It is so ridiculous, that it is its own parody. But it also worried me in that I know far too many people who not only embrace ignorance, but seem to celebrate it as a virtue.
The religious right is in the mainstream pushing their anti-intellectual and anti-science agenda. I see the effects on my family and friends, where reading a book is a boring waste of time and learning is considered dangerous and unwholesome.
Watch the video and beware of the NSFW language.
The SNL skit didn't have to do much to point out the absurdity of this song.
Maybe I am being too sensitive. I have seen one of my nieces drop out of high school and another niece constantly complains about school on her Facebook page, ironically asking why she needs to learn "stuff" in sentences riddled with terrible grammar and misspellings.
ZJemptv gives a good analysis of this video. Also some NSFW language contained in her video.
