A serious question for the group Flyleaf:
I should state up front that I own their debut CD and actually like most of the songs on it, so I'm not being facetious. I also seriously doubt that anyone in the band, let alone Lacey Mosley will ever see this post or answer me.
How do you feel about the song "Cassie" now in light of the Salon Feature article entitled 'Who said "Yes"?'
I understand that a lot of young people have had a religious experience because of the story about Cassie Bernall, or was it Rachel Scott...or maybe it was Valeen Schnurr?
Some would say that a religious experience is a good thing, but is it still a good thing when it's based on a lie? An untruth poisons the whole stew. I want to make it clear that I don't believe there was every any intentional falsehood on the part of anyone involved, but turning someone into a martyr based on erroneous information is wrong.
Lacey, in the song "Cassie" you sing that she pulled the trigger, when in reality it was one of the two psychopaths who were shooting people. How do you reconcile this with religious sources condemning suicide? Saying yes in this case would be akin to killing yourself.
Okay, now that I've probably pissed a lot of people off, let the hate mail rain in...
