OK, if the language of modern hip-hop offends you, don't listen to this.

The news story video about the rappers is near the top; the actual rappin' video is a bit down the page.

You Have Been Warned.

This is Protestantism Run Amuck.

The rappers included a Protestant minister of a Protestant church, trying to gain members to his Protestant youth group.

Evangelical Protestants are the only Christians who do stuff like that.

O.K. this was simply wrong on many levels! Not sure who should be offended: Christians, Blacks, or Rappers!?    ??? ;D
There are heathens that live with more virtue than I. The devil himself believes Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Neither of these things truly makes me Christian.

Would we know about the Christian side hug if it were not for Christian rap? What more evidence is needed as to it's usefulness?

Please stop confusing JamesR with actual reality.  He would prefer to live in his fantasy world.

He will, no doubt, blame the Protestants for infecting Orthodoxy with this (albeit ill-conceived) attempt to garner the youth vote, so to speak.

Oh, I mean no harm of course. I hope everyone realizes the light hearted nature of my reply.

James, if nothing else, take solace in the fact the Orthodox seems to do a much better job of it!!   :)

When the first Christian black metal album came out it was realised by all that no genre was safe.
