“Inspiration. Wait a minute. That’s it. Inspiration you guys. Don’t you see? Our band should play Christian rock. Think about it. It’s the easiest, crappiest music in the world, right? If we play songs about how much we love Jesus, all the Christians will buy our crap. You just start that way, Stan, and then you cross over. It’s genius! It worked for Creed.”–Eric Cartman, South Park character

Nathan knew it would set me off. So he sent this in an e-mail entitled “A sign of the Apocalypse.”

From the site:

“Grab the guitar and play along with top Christian bands! Shred those riffs or blast the bass…you add a unique sound to the solid Christian rock. But watch out: if you can’t keep up, the artists will take a break and stop the music. Crank it up and try again – you’ll soon be rockin’ with the best while praising the Lord!”

Could somebody please explain to me how the Christian subculture stays in business?
