So you’re in your car scanning through radio stations and you come across something that sounds pretty cool. You start bobbing your head, maybe tapping your fingers on the steering wheel. “Hey, I wonder who this band is?” you think. Then the chorus comes along. “The lord Jesus is the only way, wash me with your holy water, save me lord!” is the refrain or some such shit. Fuck, you were just jamming out to a Christian rock song! Did anyone see?? You change the station quickly and make a mental note never to go back there. Christian stations: stay in the low numbers where you belong, and leave the rockin’ music to the seculars!
