Bad Rapping the Bible (Word up...His Word up)
I was thinking about the 'Moment of Silence' bill, um, law that we passed last week, which has gotten off to an 'awkward' start in schools around the state. The bill's sponsor maintained that it wasn't a way to try to get prayer into the schools, which if true, would make the law make even less sense. (If religion was at the crux of it, there would have at least been a purpose, albeit unconstitutional, to this ambiguous mandate. Taking the sponsors at their word, the purpose of the law is to let kids listen to birds chirping and leaves rustling.)
But despite all of the other issues that I had with the bill, I'm not sure that in today's age, a moment of silence is even the best way to get kids to focus on religion. (Not that that was the purpose of the bill, of course.)
Then I was watching Nightline and they had a short piece about a website called GodTube, essentially a religious version of YouTube. I guess that it strikes me as a logical way to use technology to reach the younger generation, to bring mass to the masses if you will.
But I'm not so sure if this video is what the site creators had in mind. Then again, maybe it's just what they had in mind.
