PATER LEPPICH spricht auf der ReeperbahnPosted: March 6, 2008
One other special thing about religious records is of course that the people that make them are believers and want to spread that belief. When I hear Sister Rosetta Tharpe singing it`s so convincing, so inspired I want to be a believer myself. I don`t believe in any kind of god but I respect the belief of others. So many good things are done every day because people believe . What have I done to make this world better?
Pater Leppich on the other hand is outright creepy and scary. He means well and he talks about love a lot, but his voice is harsh and just sounds evil. He is also a really crazy anticommunist. Creepy, crazy and…quite funny!
