I’m not going to lie. I won the 1995 Mr. Berry contest by singing “Watch the Lamb”
I even took a knee half way through the song…
At first I tried to resist him, Then his hand reached for his cross,
So I knelt and took the cross from the Lord,
I placed it on my shoulder, And started down the street,
The blood that he’d been shedding was running down my cheek.
I freaking owned that song.
Well the feather curled man who wore that mullet better than any Christian artist of the 80’s, has come out of the closet.
I hope Ray feels loved in this time.
I have lots of gay friends, family, and former co-workers.
I know the struggle it is to choose to come out to the world when you have been living a lie.
I wonder, will this allow Ray to write and sing again?
Will he feel God’s love in a bigger way now that he has freed himself from his double life?
Or will the Christian funeral business have to find another theme song?
