So I threw myself on the grenade....|
Tribal gatekeeping shrinking both the pool of in-tribe artists AND the acceptable variation of message specifics?
(Fred Clark's got some pretty damn funny comments on that.
I think at least part of the problem is that a Christian who makes lots of good music and has a song or two about Jesus *doesn't get a record contract with a "Christian record" label*, and doesn't get filed in the Christian Music genre. Even if their religious music is their greatest goal.
And on the flip side, the "Christian record" label tends to value anviliciousness of message.
It's at least partially self-selection.
