LOS ANGELES — Two Christian groups are denouncing Johnny Depp for participating in recording a song that they decry as blasphemous.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star evoked the outrage by contributing vocals to the song "Jesus Stag Night Club" by the British band Babybird.

The song, which recasts the Son of God as a booze-chugging party animal who revels in driving stolen cars and facilitating bachelor parties, begins with the lyrics, "Saw a man in a bar with his hair like a lady/ Bloody thorns round his ear like he was a crazy/ He had holes in his hands and a cross for a spine/ Crushed a berry in his Perrier and called it wine."

Christian Coalition spokesman Lee Douglas told British newspaper the Daily Star that the song is "blasphemy," adding that Depp is "simply a disgrace" for taking part in the song.

"One day, Johnny Depp and his cronies will face the judgment of our Lord and they will burn in hell for this filth," Douglas predicted.

The Focus on the Family organization was similarly condemnatory, telling the paper, "We are sickened by Mr. Depp's behavior. Why did he need to record this song?"

The song is "a slap in the face to Christians all over the world," Focus on the Family said.
