    Ok, ok, that's a blanket statement. And, know I'm not referring to any specific intelligence, excpet for the fact that they buy crap. I mean, Christian Rap (and there is Gansta Rap, figure that one out!!) to Goth Metal (how the fuck can you have Goth Metal and not sing about the devil and demons?!?!) but the one thing that really wins, besides actors that can't find work anymore and suddenly find Christianity and then it's "Hey, let's put you in an apocalyptic movie!!", is Britney Spear's mother was writing a book about parenting. And, published by Thomas Nelson publishers. (They publish the NIV Bible) I swear I should like come up with some stupid crap that no one else would buy and call it "Approved for Christian Use" I would be freaking RICH! Hmmm, maybe Christian condoms. Oh, wait I think Monty Python disproved that [​IMG]

    Actually, Monthy Python proves that Catholics can't use condoms. Other flavours of Christians, however, are free to do as they please regarding contraception.

    replace Christians with Muslims/Islam or Jews and this thread would probably be closed

    Best Thread Ever.

    You make stupid points.
    Who buys Christian Rap?
    Not me.
    Who buys Christian Rock?
    Not me.
    I'm Christian and happen to be listening to Lil Wayne rap right now. [​IMG]

    And what does Britney Spears mother writing a book have to do with Christianity?
    Nothing.

    this.

    EDIT:

    There are extremists in everything. Replace Christians with ANY "group" and there will be some sort of uproar. Honestly? I think Christians take the 'abuse' the best. But whatevs, naming a Teddy Bear Muhammad gets you years and in jail and 40 lashes. [​IMG]

    It doesn't even have to be a "religion". Replace it with, oh, I don't know, Feminists. The name itself is quite extremist. They'll buy anything.

    Perhaps that's called marketing to a key demographic.

    PS: I'm listening to Ska.

    Don't hate all Christians, this one had great performances.

    On topic: I don't see how the things you mention relate only to the so called Christians, I think stupidity has no religion.

    Gee, I don't know. Maybe some people like to listen to music where every other word isn't a bad word.

    Why such a harsh topic? Did Michael W. Smith touch you in a bad place or something? Why don't you try to live and let live? Judging people without knowing their individual motivations or intentions is just prejudice.

    And yes, Christians do buy a lot of crap. But so do atheist gamers.

    Topic title changed, there's no need for a religion debate flame war right now.

    A music genre is defined by the style in which the instruments are played, not their content.

    Rapping about Jesus. That's the coolest shit.

    Reminds me of those educational raps that they played in school in the 80s.
