This Guy Gets It

Tim Hawkins has people laughing about all kinds of things (HT: Fr. Beane). Word is he's a Christian comedian and therefore part of a (thankfully) growing breed of comedians who have found great success by forgoing the tired old shticks laced with foul language and sex (cf., for another instance of this trend, the refreshingly clean and outrageously funny Brian Regan).

Anyhow, here's a priceless bit about praise songs. Did he know that his humor has uncovered part of what's wrong with them? They already sound like commercials . . .

  1. Sadly, I think that this might be their whole thesis. I bet if I emailed this link to some of my friends who are advocates of the American Evangelical model of worship they would not be chagrined, but pleased. The point is that the music and everything else about the worship is "relevant" and "fits the culture."

    I mean, whodda thunk we'd have sermon series about movies? Why not songs that sounds like commercials. . .
