Day 85: Live From Jackson Coffee Co.....


Definitely a great act, but they raised a question, posed by Buffcock, about obvious religious tones in more secular places. Where do we draw the line? If they sing music of a religious nature, is it enough to argue that it's beautiful music or should it be not sung because some might be offended? Their mid-song comments about praising the that too far?

This is a public coffee shop that has live music for free every Friday night, but should it be used as a podium from which to spread a certain message, a message not necessarily about just music. What if there was an Indian group performing music about Hindu gods, and then telling a story about Hinduism? Is it the same? More offensive or less so? What about a Jewish act? A Muslim act?
