't'weren't so much the "metal" part that bugged me ... as the "death" part ... don't mean to pick a fight ...

understand that I'm coming from the viewpoint of a guy who owns and enjoys the music of Rammstein, Disturbed, Nine Inch Nails, etc.

I guess I just sometimes question whether or not there are some musical stylings that shouldn't really have "Christian" versions ... and I really mean "question" ... I don't mean I have an opinion, and my opinion is that you're wrong :wink:

indeed - it's not the 'Christian metal' that i found disquieting (although, personally i do find metal to be a bit disquieting..) it was the 'Christian DEATH metal'.. Christianity ain't about death - it's about life!

i remember being at AWANA once and an elderly fellow explaining to us that rock music was evil because of the beat.. funny thing was, he was completely sincere.

Cap Morgan has this line of flavored rums called Parrot Bay ... the pineapple rum is to die for. Someday I'm gonna get a bottle of the coconut flavored so I can mix up pina coladas w/o all those pesky non-rum ingredients.
