No zombie/priest chases on Scuzz
The UK rock TV channel Scuzz has refused to show the video of Deicide’s “Homage For Satan” because it is too “derogatory”.
A spokesman for Scuzz declared:
The lyrical content is religiously offensive, derogatory, and can be read as improper exploitation of any susceptibilities of the audience
In fact, as you can hear for yourself, the lyrics are completely incomprehensible.
Regarding the content of the video, the spokesman added:
[…]the inclusion of a priest or religious figure in any belief system is always a very touchy subject, but the possession of one such person, and the disparaging respect for the Christian Bible is in direct conflict with Ofcom regulations
The cheaply-produced video depicts a number of zombies, one of whom chases a Bible-carrying priest through the streets. Eventually, the black-clad sky pilot is cornered, attacked, and becomes a zombie himself.
The most offensive thing about this preposterous video is that, as any fool knows, zombies cannot run. They can only shuffle.
