    I don’t mean this comment in a rude way, however as a Jewish person since Hallelujah is in fact a Hebrew word, I find the funny mistake a little offensive. Hallelu mean Praise and Jah meaning G-d. In the first you sing it you mess up Jah, so you are messing G-d’s name.

    Leonard had at some point asked politely that people let this song be, that maybe it was too much that it had been covered. After his death, these fools make a show where they also interrupt it or whatever, making a supposedly "funny" atmosphere with a little sketch... But yes, show must go on, people like it! Fuck your world, seriously. How can you laugh with this shit? Glad we think differently.

    God is real and wants to make life better for all. He is peace, protection, comfort and guidance as well as rules, so life is fair to all. People reject Him because they don't want the rules part or because so many of us misrepresent Him. That gets us to irreverance that just makes the situation worse. I ache for all of us.
