Subject: RE: Are racist, but traditional, songs OK?
Actually I'm a little surprised that there's been no fundamentalist objections to "The Bitter Withy," which could be interpreted as disrespectful of Jesus and denying his innate moral perfection.
On the other hand, that kind of rigid literalism may be more typical of some American denominations, and the song here is hardly known at all.
