oh, Christian radio. you silly people.

I can't get enough of talking about how funny it can be to listen to Christian radio sometimes. Heidi and Alli and I talked about it for quite some time the other night.

I can't listen to it for more than 30 seconds without bursting into laughter for hearing an on-air prayer, the "newest hits" like Steven Curtis Chapman's "The Great Adventure", or hearing some cheesy advertisement or commercial "drama" between two girls debating about whether or not to go to a party. I haven't even gotten into the whole ApologetiX scene of covering "Love Shack" with "Shad-rach, baby Meshach"!

And then, just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, the other day I heard the lady on Shine 89.7 FM (which is a SOMEWHAT decent station out of Olivet Nazarene Univ. in Kankakee) talking about Mr. Tomlin (Chris). She began to introduce his involvement with the Passion network and partnership with Louis Giglio. However, her pronunciation of Giglio sounded somewhat French--like the failure of a movie, Gigli, starring Bennifer? Yeah, just like that. Gigli-o. Are you kidding me?

These people have no idea what's going on in the world.

I think Christian Radio is funny because of the commercials or ads. You get 3 different preachers giving 3 one minute blurbs.

"Ok be better to my kids, the government is being shady, I need to turn on the power of God by plugging in the plug... but I was the one who unplugged it but my kid was the one who figured it out... Wait someone explain this mess!!!"

I like it that Christian Radio is commercial free, but this hour has been sponsored by Stevenson Chevrolet in Elgin off the corner of Main and 5th street where the prices are great and so are the people.
