I can't vote in this because it depends entirely on how it's done. If every song is just saying "God loves you" all the time, then fuck off. That said, there are exceptions. Seventh Power being one. I love their stuff, yet it's all practically bible readings set to riffs.

If the songs are just about regular stuff and the artist happens to be Christian (Megadeth, W.A.S.P., etc.) then fine, couldn't care less.

So basically, are we talking song content, or just religious beliefs of the band?

And are we talking exclusively about positive song content? There are, after all, anti-Christian songs that are still about Christianity. And there are simply factual songs about it too.

I agree with The Russian that there shouldn't be limits on music, but I also think that songs shouldn't be trying to drive home a religious belief under the guise of a popular music form.
