Oh Holy Night–ruined!

Curse you, Wikipedia!

Did you know that “Oh Holy Night” was written by a French anticlerical socialist?  That song is now ruined for me forever.

  1. The music was added by John Sullivan Dwight, a well-known Unitarian minister

  2. I just got back from Midnight Mass, and a lovely rendition of the hymn in Korean. I’d say the hymn need not be ruined for you, if you accept the postmodern tactic of divorcing author from text. We have to at least give postmodernism credit for countering modernism.

  3. All right. Unitarian ministere is a little better.
