Anti-Gay College’s A Cappella Group Sings George Michael’s Coming Out Anthem

The singing troupe from Tennessee’s Lee University, the Christian college that bans any displays of same-sex intimacy, sang “Freedom! ’90” on NBC’s stupidly-titled The Sing-Off, which is ironic because it was written and performed by homosexual George Michael and is essentially a hymn for coming out.

    Guy on the far left is a homo if I ever saw one. I don’t care if he is married with 14 kids… he sucks cock. I swear to sweet Christ almighty, I will go to church every Sunday for a year if he hasn’t taken it up the pooper at least once in the past 60 days.

    Jake, when I read your post I almost choked to death laughing. You really should be nominated for Funniest Queerty Post of 2009! Oh, and I think you’re gaydar is 100%, too! Cheers, mate!

    It’s not surprising that these Christian morons would sing a song by the fairy godfather of tea room trollers. The far right is not known for it’s sense of irony. Hence the whole “tea-bagging” mess…

    They have a facebook page. I’m tempted to go over there and thank them for singing George Michael’s song about the struggles of being a closeted gay man. I’m certain they have no idea what the song is about.

    So, the bottom line is don’t hire anyone with a degree from Lee University in Tennessee. There are plenty of better universities in Tennessee and elsewhere for employers and students to select from.

    Over at The A Cappella Blog, we have not been big fans of Voices of Lee’s performance on this show, but this adds a new wrinkle to our issues with the group. Thanks for sharing this insight.
