CBS Airs Feminist Singer’s Violent Anti-Religion Song

Kristeen Young

CBS received a lot of flak after it aired a violent anti-religion track on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on July 17. Piano-banging rock artist Kristeen Young made her television debut on the show along with Foo Fighters stars Pat Smear and Dave Grohl. Young sang a song titled Pearl of a Girl that criticizes Judaism, Islam and Christianity, going so far as to say about Jesus that the Virgin should have had an abortion.

While the lyrics are not as clear in her rant-like performance on CBS, below are the shocking words of the song:

“I never knew I was a girl until they stopped to tell me
I never knew I was disturbed until they dropped three volumes on me
But in the Bible/Torah/Quran there are really no good roles for me except concubine and wash woman
I used to be the sad one now I just wanna stab them it’s so severe its brutal…
They’ve needed to have the law so they can legally bind us
They’ve needed to have the church so they can morally ground us
They’ve needed most of the dough they must be so scared of us
So their stories are of ghosts I only wish the virgin would’ve had an abortion.”

Speaking of the costumes she designs for herself, Young said that she is amused by things that are Satanic because music is “so not right now.” She explained that the patterns she painted on her skirt are religious symbols but she added them to her attire only so she could deface them. The cross and the half moon on her attire in the video have been placed upside down while she has replaced the Star of David with a blade-like weapon that is used in martial arts. Young defends her track as liberation for women from centuries of religious persecution.

Below is the studio version of the song:
