As a Pagan I believe it’s important to see the sacredness is everything. Stephen Colbert must be a god:
Anyone that can find an arrangement of “The Star Spangled Banner” which is worth listening to just has to be divine. Based on an English drinking song that is difficult to sing even while drinking, it’s not the kind of singalong that a national anthem ought to be. It’s also focused on our flag as an inspiration, which is an idea I support but too narrow for a national anthem. And did I mention is was based on a song written in the country that was, at the time of poem’s composition, was burning our cities?
So to perform such a beautiful rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” leaves me in awe. Stephen Colbert’s talents never fail to impress me.
