The video for the pop star’s new single has outraged many Christians. But it’s no sin to sing about the climate crisis
And the Bible said: “God did not spare the angels when they sinned” (2 Peter 2:9). Nor, it seems, did God spare Billie Eilish.
The 17-year-old pop star’s unsettling new video finds her a fallen angel, ejected from Heaven and landing on Earth to find it a deserted, fiery hellscape. “Peter’s on vacation, an open invitation,” she sings, against jaunty keys, suggesting that “even God herself … will want the Devil on her team”.
