what matters more to you?
i had a pretty interesting discussion about Christian music on this blog not so long ago and it's generated some extra traffic as other blogs linked to it.
have you listened to this tune? stop reading and go listen to it if you haven't.
this song is being censored and the label didn't release it with his album, he had to release it through his website. wanna know why? he uses the word "damn" in the song. honestly, that's the reason. the subject matter of the tune talks about Christians who hate on others because of their sexuality but it's getting censored because of the "D" word?
damn, damn, damn.
first of all, Christians need to stop with all the hate. i saw this one blog post at Emerging Thought in Montana where this one pastor was advocating that all gays be killed and my reaction to that, this is what someone thinks is Christian? this is not Christian. Jesus isn't a hater, and neither should you be.
let me go a little further though. this tune is an excellent tune but ... it won't get into the hands of as many people of faith because it's being censored for using damn. people who need to hear this sort of message won't hear it because we're a bunch of Puritanical PRUDES.
ease up brothers. let him (or her) who has ears, let them hear.
so what matters more to you? your hate or your faith? because the two are in opposition.
