On schismatics and cheap music

Food for thought: “Shine, Jesus, Shine” is, for many people, the face of the same Church that would have thoughtful, inquisitive people accept the very counter-cultural teaching that women are inherently unable to be priests, among other culturally wacky teachings.

Am I the only one who sees this connection as clearly as daylight? Young, inquisitive people look for something to take seriously. Music that eschews any pretense of being serious fails to meet that criteria. No one walks out of Mass humming the homily.

The need for serious music in the Church is more pressing than ever.
