Excellent quote on Christian Rock

As the product of an evangelical upbringing, I can best describe my own relationship to Christian rock as love-hate, with heavy emphasis on the latter. I tend to subscribe to the writer Joe Bob Briggs’s definition of Contemporary Christian Music as consisting of “bad songs written about God by white people.” Though the quality’s gone way up since I was a kid, it’s always seemed that those who embrace Christian rock resemble tofu-burger eaters or near-beer drinkers–people in search of pale substitutes for things they once found pleasurable.
