Muppet Heresy That Borders on Blasphemy (not a joke)

Today I ran across this video of a fan-made simulacrum of Kermit (not to be confused with Simula-Kerm) singing “Gethsemane” from Jesus Christ Superstar.  I hesitated to post it, even–especially–on Easter Sunday, because I felt that doing so bordered on blasphemy.  I may be a heretic, but I am not a blasphemer; a subtle distinction, but one that’s extremely important to me.

But there was one particular line in the song that struck me as poignant as it relates to the Schism:

Show me there’s a reason for you wanting me to die.
You’re far too keen on ‘where’ and ‘how’…not so hot on ‘why.'”

It’s been approximately a year and a half, Disney.  Still waiting for you to show us the reason.

  1. I feel the tears, and somehow this has great meaning to us now, and knowing how wonderfully @TedNeeley sings this, I also say Kudos to Kermit’s performer for taking the chance, and bringing this to us, Muppet Christ Superstar. Who would think this is possible. Think not of this as Blasphemy but as another of God’s Creations wondering about life and death. Poor frog, becomes a sheep.
