Should we kill "Christian Music"?

This is a syndicated post from The Chant Café. [Read the original article...]

This article address a point that strikes me as compelling. The blogger speaks of the way “Christian music” has become this niche pop genre with its own clientele and stations and existence. He regards this approach as a terrible concession. Why must music that is regarded as “Christian” limit itself in message and form so strictly? Why can a great symphony or just a fun pop song be regarded as Christian as well?

Jacques Maritain: “God does not ask for ‘religious’ art or ‘Catholic’ art. The art he wants for himself is Art, with all its teeth.”
