ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer, songwriter, guitarist, stage and film actor, Phil Ayliffe has been involved in many aspects of the arts for more than 40 years.

Regarding Churchianity Blues:

"Under the Bill of Rights, Christianism is protected under the non-establishment clause of the First Amendment. But, sadly, as many of us know, it is not a reciprocal agreement with regard to freedom of speech (or thought) under that same amendment. The religious right will stop at nothing in its obsession to have control over your life.

"Churchianity Blues reveals the essential fraud of this 'gawdthink,' an Orwellian doublethink implant given to us all at birth and a cultural baggage we are forced to carry all of our lives.

For those who have been hurt by the effects of a god who basically is saying 'love and obey me or I will kill you,' along with a creation myth that is a curse on all humanity (!), my offering here will hopefully, bring a smile to those of us who continue to endure."

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this single will go to http://stopbaptistpredators.org. and also to SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) http://www.snapnetwork.org/.

Initally, I found this song disturbing. When I realized the intent, it I began to realize it was very humorous. I began nodding and smiling as the lyrics expressed how seriously the religious right takes itself when it is actually rife with hypocrisy. Ayliffe's warm, melodic voice makes this funny song one you can listen to over and over, again.
