Bad is bad
I wish I had thought of it first, but more than that, I’m mostly just grateful for having discovered this line from Madeleine L’Engle on faith and art, from her book Walking on Water:
If it’s bad art, it’s bad religion, no matter how pious the subject.
Henceforth, this shall be my reply to all joyful noisers who seek to excuse indisciplined music and sloppy performance with enthusiastic descriptions of how the offenders are really good Christians and just so full of the holy spirit. If it’s bad art, it’s bad religion, now matter how pious the subject.Email this Post
