How “Christian music” is like “heliocentric dog loving Buddhists”
Apropos our ongoing conversation about the mediocrity of “Christian” art and music, a call to abolish “Christian” music:
[H]aving a Christian music section is as silly as having an “heliocentric dog loving Buddhist” section. So why does it exist? Why is there only one section of a music store that is defined not by the genre of the music (certainly, KJ-52 does not belong in the same category, musically as Sandy [sic] Patty), but by something else…
And what is that something else exactly? Is it really the lyrical content? Bono straight up quotes the Bible sometime in his songs. Bob Dylan used all sorts of biblical imagery along with countless other mainstream writers and artists, and none of these albums are found in the Christian section. Furthermore, there are albums in the “Christian” section that certainly have nothing about them that would make one think that they are Christian..
