Is Barbara Bush Aleister Crowley's daughter? Is Arnold Schwarzenegger a nazi? Set to Non-Phixion's song, "God is an Athiest", Los Angeles-based film-maker Claude Zachary's atheist anthem posted on YouTube last August doesn't pull any punches. (Warning: not for the faint of heart).

Zachary tells LAist, "I made it by google-image searching for 'evil (fill religion name in here).' I guess I tried to show the connection between Satanism, Western religions and the US government. I was also showing how Obama is a false hope, working for the exact same people as Bush. Or it could just be that all this conspiracy stuff is bullshit and the New World Order really began with the release of Xanadu."
