someone who says AILD sucks apparently hasn't seen them live.

Yep pretty much or haven't heard The Powerless Rise. Plus As I Lay Dying is a Christan Metal band but they aren't preachy about it and they don't even let it be known when they are on stage. Personally I love As I Lay Dying they fact they are Christan does not matter one bit.

I agree that some bands do take a lot of shit for being christian and that its not always justified.

the only scenario where i could see myself hating a band because of they're religious beliefs is if they are preaching it through their music (not gonna mention any names, underoath...) because i really can't stand when anybody postulates their religious beliefs.

i dont think aild is that bad, i like some of their old material.

Edit: forgot to mention that AILD is not one of the bands that pushes religious beliefs on you (as far as i know)

There's a HUGE difference between a band who are Christians, and a Christian Band.

Christian bands play songs about Christianity. They're basically exploiting a certain media, in this case music, to preach. Regardless of whether you're a Christian or not, I think that's plain wrong.

Bands with Christian members... who gives a fuck. That's up to them, let them be.

Exactly. AILD are Christians in a metal band, but you would never guess it from their lyrics and concert performance.

I didn't even know that. Mostly because I don't care about the band...

Every other line of their songs could be "PRAISE THE LORD"... I still wouldn't care.

I've also never noticed anyone give them shit for it. Mind you, I don't frequent the kind of worthless websites where all the teenage members sum up their miserable existence by talking shit about everything they don't like either.

I don't think people give them enough shit for being religious.
Or Tom Araya. Seriously, what the fuck. Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits and he's a Christian? Lame.
Same with Hirax. They get off easy.

Religion doesn't mean the music can't be good, but it certainly does mean that I loose a fuck ton of respect for the artist performing it, and that they deserve to be harassed about it. Same goes for Nazi bands, except a ton of Nazi bands are awesome, whereas most overtly religious bands suck.
