What Matters More?

So a friend of mine told me about this video by Derek Webb that he thought that I would like/find interesting.

The lyrics and video are below; what do you think?

Here are the lyrics to the somewhat controversial song:
What Matters More lyrics

You say always treat people like you’d like to be
I guess you love being hated for your sexuality
You love when people put words in your mouth
about what you believe
make you sound like a freak

'Cause if you really believed
what you say you believe
you wouldn’t be so damned reckless
with the words you speak
you wouldn’t silently consent
when the liars speak
denying all the dying of the remedy

tell me, brother what matters more to you
tell me, sister what matters more to you

If I can see what’s in your heart
by what comes out of your mouth
then it sure looks to me like being straight
is all it’s about
it looks like being hated
for all the wrong things
like chasing the wind
while the pendulum swings

'Cause we can talk and debate
till we’re blue in the face
about the language and tradition
that He’s coming to save
and meanwhile we sit
just like we don’t give a shit about
fifty thousand people who are dying today
