Christian Rock Hard

I've never been able to get into Christian music, mostly because I've never been able to get past how lame it is. Besides the cheezy lyrics, most Christian music is preaching to the choir. It's Christians (rather than non-Christians) who listen to Christian music as a way of reinforcing their existing faith. So much for evangelizing. The only exception I would make to this lameness would be Brother Cesare, the Italian Capuchin "heavy metal monk." "I do it to convert people to life, to understand life, to grab hold of life, to savour it and enjoy it. Full stop." Spoken like a true friar.
