Jesus? Is that you?
From God's Country, a piece in yesterday's NYT Magazine about Christianity's influence on pop culture:

"For years now, the Christian rock scene has been one of the few vibrant rock scenes going in America. As hip-hop and urban R&B began to dominate the commercial airwaves, the traditional sounds of the guitar-based combo found a sanctuary in church auditoriums. By staying at least a little behind the times, P.O.D. and other Christian bands, like Amish farmers, were able to buy up neglected musical acreage, cultivate it using traditional methods and, ultimately, make it pay."

Really? Is this just phony trend-spotting? Or have we all been sleeping on Christian rock?
