From the dept. of “as others see us”
Via NG, an interesting review of the Gaither Vocal Band from the Pueblo Chieftain Online. Money quote:

When I looked for samples on You Tube of the Gaither Vocal Band, I found what I thought was a sanctimonious group of posers, probably using Jesus, who I came to know under a strict Catholic upbringing, like the charlatans who sell indulgences on cable TV to the poor folk in single-wides reading the Book of Revelation like it’s the word of God.
So I was primed for some uptight, preachy, look-at-how-holy-I-am concert at the Colorado State Fair Events Center on Wednesday night. What I and more than 4,000 other souls were treated to was a talented, warm, funny group of excellent singers and musicians who treated their fans to a night of Jesus-inspired entertainment without the fire-and-brimstone blarney.
