    No I don’t think so – there have been many pieces of art created by the many different religions over the years and some of them are quite beautiful.

    Not at all. I’m atheist – & I love a good ol’ hymn. The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended still knocks me for six.

    Mind you, I did sing in a church choir for six years.

    I love churches, but think God is about as likely as the tooth fairy….

    Why on Earth would I avoid Bach? 😯

    That would be insane…

    Is it wrong to love Gospel/Gospel House music?

    No because that’s not an actual word. 😐

    I do not believe in the existence of a Houns. Thus the question is irrelevant.

    or here

    ..and not be impressed.

    Course you are. Not a trace of hypocrisy about it either IMO.

    Based on that, does that mean it’s hypocritical to like the architectur of Salisbury cathedral if you’re not “in with the big man”?

    As above, religion has been responsible for some beautifull architecuter and art. Doesn’t mean you can’t like it unless you’re a God botherer.

    I like French rap, the Eifell tower and the Louvre, but I hate the French… 😉

    If you’re one of those devout atheists that insists religion has nothing positive to offer then clearly it would be hypocritical. Otherwise, there’s no shame in accepting that god has inspired greatness, irrespective of his actual existence 😉

    its fine – you just need to remember that most religious people are also atheists (atheism is the rejection of belief in a deity – Christians for example don’t also believe in Zeus – therefore for that particular god – they are atheists)

    Atheists? Just Agnostics in denial.

    A bit hypocritical to go and pretend to be a believer in order to enjoy Gospel, given that mass participation and praise through song is a key component..

    You don’t have to be in a church to hear gospel music.

    Don’t understand athiests. To believe in the existance of something requires faith. To deny the existance of something completely requires faith. Bad as each other really.

    Nah mate, dont tie yourself in knots. Being an athiest or humanist just means you have an open mind, see the world as it is, without inserting superstition into any holes in the picture.

    Death follows life and in the middle have as good a time as you possibly can and take as many people along for the ride as you can.

    it’s not a wholly unreasonable argument but if you believe it, it leads to you also believing to some extent in the existence of Santa, the toothfairy, etc 😉

    For me, probably the only issue I have is that some atheists use the position to attack religious people rather than the organisations.

    some atheists are cocks just like a normal cross section of people so that’s hardly a surprise is it?

    Aye, but if they were agnostics they wouldn’t give a shit either way 😉

    I love a bit of gospel me.. I always weep with joy when I watch Sister Act..

    I wholly believe that the purveyors of musical religious worship are truly onto something.. I love music.. I particularly enjoy a well constructed set of dance music and the uplifting spiritualised sensation that it can bring..

    If there was ever anything that could rejuvinate the morale of the woefully unfulfilled then it is the coming together as a group to sing away ones sorrows and dance away the stresses of day to day to life.. to lose ones self within the rhythm of the tribal drum..

    Whether you worship God, truth, alcohol, love, money, material possessions, knowledge, power or simply the act of worship itself.. you could do a lot worse for yourself than a good old fashioned knees up once a week..

    fill yer boots I reckon.. let the rhythm move you
