Why I don't partake in "Christian" Music

I have nothing against women who have bodies pretty enough to go prancing around in sexy lingerie... but fellow Christian, do not condemn secular networks for broadcasting the Victoria's Secrets fashion show if this is the type of artist you think your children should listen to and frequent.

Furthermore, nothing says, "Christians know the REAL meaning of Christmas" like a Christian artist and sexy Santas. Please. You wonder why the culture doesn't take us seriously? A video performance of Jaci Valesquez, of which her team has requested removal of from this site, singing Christmas music while dancers clad in sexy Santa lingerie while moving in a provocative manner, is an example on why the culture doesn't take us seriously.

If you are going to listen to sexualized music, may I recommend Areosmith, Christina, Brittney, and others? Be honest. "Oh, but the words, Liz." Bull. You cannot sing the praises of God and worship Venus at the Corinthian Temple.

Hat tip to A Little Leaven.

Update: I have received the following comment on this post: Dear Blonde Moment,Please be advised that a legal team has been secured to track anyone posting this video of the Jaci perfromance. You will be responsible for paying every time the video is viewed on your site or an extention of your site in addition to any legal fees incurred. The legal team is also preparing a slander case. We don't wish to include you, however, if you leave the video up, we will have no other choice. This video is over four years old and is not a current representation of Jaci. You are in violation of US copyright law by putting the video up on the internet without proper clearance. The Fair Use Copyright act does not protect against slander or waive sync license fees. This message serves as a formal request to remove the video from your site.Thanks for your cooperation.

I have removed the link to the video as I have done things in the past that I regret and repent of, and wouldn't want it put over the internet. I was merely illustrating a point. My point: Christian music is not the "safe" alternative to sex filled secular music; and if Christians complain loudly about the VS fashion show, we should also loudly complain when Christian artists sexualize themselves and our Holy-day Christmas. As this is no longer, as her representative commented, how Ms. Valesquez represents herself, the video as an example is mute, and has been removed. I would, however, like to add that the point of holding Christian music up to a higher standard then the culture is not mute.

Video is not up, slander case averted. Ms. Valesquez and her music, removed from my home, but not for purposes of the video.

    You're welcome.

    And perhaps if Ms. Valesquez is so offended when people are critical of Christian music, she should police her industry.

    I started questioning Jaci's "walk", as it were, when she was in a movie which featured her and another female fighting for a guy, including posing in lingerie in front of him. Can't remember if the females went all the way to try to hook the man.

    While it's probably just as well you took the video down, I doubt the veracity of Anonymous's claims. Legal teams don't and shouldn't do anything anonymously. Probably just same Jaci fan trying to protect her image.

    Yeah, the poster is a fan, indeed, or so we think. But, I still love my Anonymous commentors...
