Finish Eurovision representatives Lordi confess their faith
OVER THE last few days, Eurovision winners Lordi with their song "Metal Hallelujah" have caused much controversy amongst churches. Lordi (who represented Finland on Saturday 20th May) were at the centre of much rebuke with their act which was perceived by some believers to be "demonic". However, in an interview after the show, the group's lead singer Mr Lordi confessed, "I am a member of a church and our drummer Kita actually wrote and played some church music. I don't want to burn in Hell, I want to go to Heaven."
Commented Dave Williams, organiser of Christian rock and metal event
Meltdown, "It's not about looking at the image, it's about looking at
the spirit. If what they are doing and saying agrees with the Bible,
then there's nothing to complain about".
