too far?

Why do christians take love songs and turn them into songs about Jesus? Colette just heard a song on christian radio covering Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed." Good choice in music, but why did they find the need to replace or add "Jesus" into the song. (Not metaphorically but literally). What would happen if we continued this to other art forms? I'm thinking of selling this to christian book stores. What do you think?

I totally agree... in fact I think there's a South Park about them becoming famous christian musicians from taking easy listening songs and replacing "baby" with "Jesus". Brody will have to tell you about that...

Also, he had a guy open for them somewhere who sang the song, "Give me the beat Lord, and free my soul, I wanna get lost in your rock in roll...." ha ha ha

South Park is awesome, and so is that guy but for a completely different reason.

One of these days the secular world will strike back with the poem "Footprints in the Sin."
