Faith Music

So, it being Christmas Break, Emphatic Girl is watching TV and an ad comes on for a CD of kid-targetted pop called Worship Jamz--light pop songs for religious Christians. EG is flummoxed by this. I (for whom most of the kid-targetted pop she likes is yucky) suggest that this is no worse than anything else that's out there. "But they're, like, rock and rolling and singing about Jesus!" she says despairingly. "Don't they have any respect?"

I'm not sure whether she feels the CD doesn't honor Christianity or doesn't honor pop music, but in either case, the kid is clearly not their audience.
