Jonathan Davis is back with the latest episode of "Through the Black Labyrinth," his 13-part video series detailing each song on his first-ever solo album, Black Labyrinth, out now. The fourth installment chronicles the making of the record's "Everyone," which finds the Korn frontman stepping into a pastor's shoes ... just to unleash a screed against hypocritical Christians who preach tolerance but practice the exact opposite. "It's me being a preacher," explains the singer. "I'm pounding it over your head, preaching to you just like they do."
"It just pisses me off to know that in Christian churches, gays are persecuted, and people who are different are persecuted," Davis vents in the new clip. "In the whole scheme of things, if you're just trying to put a group of people together who care about each other, don't single out a person because they're gay." He goes on to speculate on the origins of Christian homophobia. "The only reason it says in the Bible, 'gays are going to go to hell and don't do it,' is because if two gay men get together they can't have children, and if you have children, you can't assimilate them into Christianity. That's the only reason they don't like gay people. Come on."
Despite the song's anti-religious stance, Davis maintains that he's a spiritual person, nonetheless. Describing his worldview, he offers, "I believe in a higher power, obviously: I believe sometimes that this universe might be a simulation of some kind, and it might be designed by someone intelligent. But we'll never know until we'll die, really, will we? This is my journey trying to figure it out."
