GODLINESS (profanity alert)

Nick Cave on Christ and the Devil: Has religion become a form of rebellion? (NICK CAVE AND FREDDIE SAYERS, 4/08/23, UnHerd)

"In the old days, with The Birthday Party, they were extremely energetic, extremely (I would say) violent, aggressive concerts done by a not-fully-formed person, who held the world in contempt as a sort of default. That was the energy of those concerts -- and that has changed completely. Now I see the world in a completely different way, and see human beings in a completely different way. I see the brokenness of human beings, but also the unbelievable value of human beings. This is something that, back then, I could never have imagined I would have felt. I think it has something to do with becoming a more complete person, through a series of things that have happened to me through my life -- things that have happened to us all, probably."

The Culture Wars are a rout.
