First off, this is not a joke. This song (it is secular) has inspired hundreds of thousands of people to keep pushing through tough days at work. In an interview with Ze Frank (who presented Minister Ray with remixes and music videos for his song made by fans of Ze's videoblog, The Show), Ray said that he was trying to help his daughter through a bad day at work, one in which she almost walked out, when he came up with the song.
The interview is filled with some interesting bits. Ray speaks on such varied subjects as Egyptology, Cognitive Psychology, Philosophy, Equality and Animal Behavior. While the animal comments seemed somewhat segregationist to me, overall, his talk was moving and interesting. He spoke to the backlash he has felt from some other members of the religious community toward the language in his song. Ray said that people need to be real. He said that many of the folks that criticize him think things like this everyday, but won't share their thoughts because they wish to seem righteous. He says that more people can be helped if everyone just admitted that they were people as well.
Ray's song is awesome . . . and strangely enough, inspirational. Here are links to the interview and videos/remixes. Ray took a big chance by stepping outside of his ascribed social role to best help his daughter--for that, I think he deserves a round of applause.
