Default Re: Poor, poor Christianity...

A number of things jump out of this interesting article about Beyonce in worship.

The article mentions that the service was about the social philosophy of the pop star:

More than 900 people came to the celebration of the “traditional” service using the music and social philosophy of the pop star

After digging around on Google I found that the social philosophy of Beyonce is to "do whatever she wants to do".

This is validated by the Priest's statement:

"“I believe in Beyoncé because she reminds us you have to do things your way.”

That's right Priest, do what you want to do, maybe next time a bit of "I did it my way" Sinatra.


“I know there are people who will say using Beyoncé is just a cheap way of trying to get people in the church,”

Sure seems like it:

"More than 900 people came to the celebration of the “traditional” service using the music and social philosophy of the pop star. Normal evening services draw about 50."


"“When we talk about womanist biblical interpretation, Beyoncé felt like a natural fit" - there's that old feminist agenda again, interpreting the bible based on what's between one's legs.


“I’ve been asked time and time again, ‘Why Beyoncé?'” Norton told parishioners, “I believe in Beyoncé because she reminds us you have to do things your way.” - so not God's way? interesting.


“Our goal is to have a worship experience that honors the fact that we’re all created in the image of God.”

"worship experience" - entertain the masses, give em something they won't forget, get them coming back for more (900 - 50 = 850 new church members to retain)

"that honors the fact that we’re all created in the image of God." - so Beyonce is the image of God?

Here she is, looking a lot like the goddess of the sun, or is it Oh Mother Mary, is that you? In Asia, if someone dresses like that and stands on a mountain, 100,000 Catholics and buddhists will come to worship.
