No doubt when all you have ever listened to is sex-driven junk, really spiritual music feels like a bucket of cold water to a copulating canine.

I think church music sucks, too.

I've never been a copulating canine so I wouldn't know.

Actually, there are a few highly theistic songs that I'm very fond of - I still think the underlying Christian symbolism is based on mythological bullshit, but it has inspired some powerful visuals and stirring music. Some examples might be the Battle Hymn of the Republic, and good old Jerusalem. Damn fine tunes, moving imagery. Not any more likely to convert me than straight, rational discussion with neither metaphor nor musical accompaniment would be, though, and that hasn't so far. I remain a cynical, atheistic Brit. Would you expect anything else? I also like the Marseillese, but I feel no particular urge to emigrate to France.

Flaccid music ... and they're proud of it.

There are more than two classifications of music. "Sex driven junk" and spiritual music are not any of them.

Narrow minds live in narrow worlds.

I have to admit, the only reason I know 'Jerusalem' is 'cause the Pythons made Graham Chapman stand around with a bucket over his head.
Now that that's out of the way, I'm a bit old-fashioned, meaning I don't like to mix religion and music all that much. Religious hymns never had much appeal. Now the so-called Christian genre...that stuff's just nasty. If they could at least SING, it'd be marginally tolerable.
In conclusion, I'd like to lead the congregation in a rousing rendition of 'Keep Your Jesus Off My Penis'. Maestro!

What is it with you Fundies and all these sexual references, metaphors and similes?

A person would almost think you guys are obsessed with sex or something...

*regarding the website*

What do you people have against "christian" rock?

I see you mention the sins of alot of christian rock stars, but you failed to mention the sins of John Newton. He'd blow those guys out of the water.

Never having been a canine I can't attest to your simile.

Some spiritual music is very good (Mozart's Requiem, Handel's Messiah, etc.), however, much spiritual music is insipid pap.

A lot of "sex-driven" music isn't junk. Sex is a topic of interest to most humans. It often relates to deeply felt emotions which are the bases for many great songs.

That was you with that bucket of water? DAMN YOU!

Fundies just can't stand anyone having any fun.

We've got both types of music. Country and Western!

No doubt when all you have ever listened to is christian retardedness, decent music feels like your head is exploding.

That is a very clever way of trying to get around the fact that "spiritual music" is just pretentious and/or crappy. Chalk up to subjectively all you like, it still doesn't improve the music quality...

My dog said "sounds like a good reason not to listen to it".

3/13/2008 7:07:09 PM


I'll bet his selection of "really spiritual" music would feel like a bucket of cold water thrown on a humping dog, no matter what you'd previously been listening to.

Would Copulating Canines be a good name for a rock group, or is the dog reference too edgy?

3/13/2008 7:33:04 PM


Given his two choices, I'd rather have sex-driven junk any day.

3/13/2008 7:44:26 PM


It's those damn furries again

Or, more correctly, those damn furry-obsessed fundies.

3/13/2008 8:06:12 PM


Oh shit, AV has a website. Might as well just post the contents here.

I wonder what your idea of "really spiritual music" sounds like. I'll bet there's no Bach in your music collection, let alone anything with a Black person in it.

3/13/2008 8:08:00 PM


What? O_o

3/13/2008 8:20:47 PM


What, now dogs aren't even allowed to fuck? Then get them neutered!

And I find Christian music much more like nails on a chalkboard.

3/13/2008 8:23:33 PM

And who are you to decide whether the canine deserves to have descendents or not?

Wow, like a cold shower ?? That sounds awesome, I can't wait to get my tickets and get all dressed up for a fun night of abstinence and self denial.

By the way, listen to super roots 9 by the Boredoms and then tell me about spiritual music.

You've apparently never been to a black church or ever heard a recording of any of their music.
