Curious: Seeking opinions (if applicable) or facts (if available).
The song, "What If God Were One of Us?" is a particularly ironic choice for the show, since it is specifically about a God who is distant, cold, and detached from us. One who does not understand our problems and suffering.
The show, however, aims to show that God is no such thing, that He really does care, but that we don't always see the basis for it due to our own limitations. That it all really does have a "deeper meaning".
So my question is: Was the choice of the song cluelessness on the part of someone on the production staff (hey, it might have been mandated from on-high by some idiots at the studio), or was the very strong irony unintentional? If it was cluelessness, that would seem unusual for the producers, who usually show an impressive level of talent.
If anyone actually knows of any "official" commentary about this, it would be nice to read it. If not, feel free to chime in your thoughts or opinions.
