I watched this documentary on Christian pop/rock last night on the CBC. Anybody else see it? It was one of the most disturbing things I've seen in a while. Hardcore christian evangilists/missionaries have created a massive industry in Christian pop music designed to lure teenagers into becoming devoted followers. They drive a machine that repackages the mainstream pop ideas that appeal to teenagers into a well calculated christian propoganda tool. Not only is the music created to make lots of money but it's also created to expressly manipulate youth. That in my mind contridicts the very nature of free thought that real music should be. While bubble-gum pop exists soley to create money for record labels, bubble-gum christian pop goes that moral step further downwards in creating music to "brainwash" as well. All through the documentary they showed images and interviews that were very disturbing. Evangilists that talk about their goals of converting the majority of world youth into Christians through the use of Christian pop music. If they can covert the youth now, they can change world leards of tomorrow. The documentary showed evangilists that throw huge shows that lure in kids by offering them the Chrisitian bands, but then shut the bands down early for their sermons. They talk about "save percentage", the number of kids they can get to commit to becoming Christians at each show. The evangilists prey on the teenagers using the loneliness and insecurities they all feel. Teenagers are taught to make decisions based on the chruch collective, not decisions based on their own free thought. The whole thing comes across as a very originized, very disciplined cult. The whole way through the show I couldn't stop thinking that if these exact same tactics were being used to promote the Muslim religion amongst youth there would be a massive outcry and it wouldn't last long.
