tv singing contestants in Australia have been asked not to talk about God. Apparently it would be seen as not cool.
It’s an interesting echo of the efforts by some to derail an Australian Idol winner’s song being picked for WYD. After all, the twisted reasoning would go that if a non-church musician isn’t good enough to write for God, then God’s insufficient as a topic for non-church musicians. Or some such twisted thing.
Maybe the winner will pull a Jim Morrison or something when they get to the finals. That would be cool.
