Response to Yesterday’s Letter

Thanks for your response. I agree with you on many points, but strictly from a secular point of view. However, I am of the opinion that as representatives of Christ we have a higher calling than political correctness. If you take no issue with a song from a supposedly Christian group that has no problem denigrating a race of people based on an archaic racial stereotype, then more power to you. I do not feel comfortable with it, and would be hard pressed to justify playing such a song on a supposedly Christian radio station. Would you feel equally as comfortable if a “Christian” song were to play on WNAZ with references to Jews charging exorbitant interest rates or African-Americans tap-dancing while eating fried chicken and watermelon? I doubt you would. If my assessment is correct, why do you feel comfortable with “The Valley Song”. Better yet, why does it not make you feel uncomfortable? Do you think such lyrics would evoke a smile, a wink and a nod from our Saviour?
My personal impression — and obviously, this is just my opinion — is that
Jesus would have more of a sense of humor about it. I think Paul would consider
it “meat sacrificed to idols.” If it offends you, don’t do it, but be very
careful about judging others who are not offended by it.
