That's the thing that's always gotten me about contemporary Christian: it all sounds so bland and brainwashed. The 60s/70s Jesus freak stuff isn't the worst of it, but the stuff nowadays, it's like they listened to adult contemporary and decided it was too racy and needed a lobotomy and a chemical castration. Christianity used to produce some epic, era- and culture-defining music, and did so for centuries, usually blazing the trail in new musical developments. Now, CC artists basically imitate whatever's popular after giving it the same lobotomy-castration combo.

@JakeGould: I remember at least some evangelicals when I was a kid railing against John Denver because of Rocky Mountain High and then appearing in Oh God!, with George Burns playing God (imagine that, a Jew playing the father of Jesus!). Especially because the villain was a televangelist (brilliantly played by Paul Sorvino). Of course, these were the same people behind "The Smurfs Are Evil" and "Tolkien teaches kids about witchcraft."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm mariano:

I like how you have "Day by Day" from "Godspell" in the background, micah.

Yeah, there's the hardcore Pentecostal Jack-Chick crowd who think that the Catholic church is the Whore of Babylon and the Pope's the Antichrist. On the other hand, if the shoe fits... [I was raised Catholic so I can say it]

The way I understand it, Catholics were “questionable” because they all ultimately follow the Pope… So you can never trust them because your local religious leader will never be able to control people who can ultimately be controlled by some guy in Italy.

Chick Tracts were a thing - for reals !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm mariano:

@Jake: Yeah, there's the belief that the Pope is the successor of St Peter, praying to Mary (a female deity?!? Tut tut!), veneration of saints (or as Pentecostals see it: idolatry/paganism), needing a priest to absolve your sins, transubstantiation, all kinds of other stuff they find objectionable.
@ultradamno: I've seen some really funny parodies of Chick over the years. I have kind of a soft spot for them, they're so over-the-top absurd. Pure spiritual pornography.
Avatar 6:52pm dale:

  7:03pm Listener Robert:

Anyway, I've had in mind for years the idea of doing ticket-book style tracts like Chick Publications, but for Odinism. And I don't mean ironically. And I would acknowledge Chick as inspiration...and I bet he'd be glad for it if he could see them.

I'm not a good enough artist, but I could story board them with crude drawings and do the text writing for an artist to finish.

@Kat: a mass is basically a ritual of ceremonial magic and divine cannibalism, in which (if you really believe), bread becomes God's flesh and wine becomes his blood. Metal AF if you ask me, lol!
  7:09pm Listener Robert:

What the Catholic and Orthodox Christian churches don't acknowledge openly is that they are doing magick. They may not achieve transubstantiation, but by getting people in the mood where they're willing to make it happen, especially when they chant together, they're probably calling down SOME kind of magick -- spelled with a "k" in the Crowleyan sense.

  7:42pm Listener Robert:

@Gnomon, I would have Odin, Freya, and eventually others walking among us today, talking to this one "seeker" type, giving them an excuse to be explaining things. There'd be no definite effects of magick visible in the tract, except for Odin's ability to do quick changes in apperance.

Like in one he'd be driving a taxi in New York City with a bumper sticker deceptively saying, "Read Holy Qu'uran / broaden your knowledge." Then he'd pick up the seeker and take him on a wild ride. And he'd turn around and look at the guy in back and have one eye, and then again a brief time later and have both eyes, to show his timelessness, and that the myths don't necessarily run in any consistent chronologic order, so "before" and "after" are all mixed.

Anyway, Odin would take the seeker to the observation deck of a skyscraper and show him someone in an office thru a telescope, and say, "You can see him, but can you tell what he's going to do next week? Somebody gave me a device that let me peer into men's minds, but I turn out to have hardly any use for it. I can tell what he PLANS to do next week, but he can always change his mind."

JC Superstar and Godspell were kind of cultural atrocities.

@JakeGould "Night on Earth" was great. I think I need to re-watch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Kat in Chicago:

This one is making me cringe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm mariano:

@ultradamno: because I heard it when I was a kid, "Where Are You Going?" from Godspell can put a lump in my throat, I guess it's a guilty pain instead of a guilty pleasure? The scene from the movie is soooo 70s NYC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm ultradamno:

It's disconcerting to not hear stories of molesting, rape and violence to go along with the music. Especially since I'd be willing to bet the last two singers are incorrigible gropers.

Wait, who is this reminding me of, this Ken Scott? The voice is like some other 70s singer's...

Looking back at the movie now, with Victor Garber, I can only see Jennifer Garner's dad in Alias.

@ultradamno: Station Krampus Ken loves “JC Superstar.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm mariano:

That's right, Garber with a white-boy 70s 'fro and rainbow suspenders! Lynne Thigpen was in it too (the DJ from The Warriors). Not sure if anyone else in it got famous.

Is this THAT Barry McGuire? Sure sounds like him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm mariano:

I've always thought Elvis Costello could do a kickass cover of "Turn Back, O Man".

He also plays Ultra Right Extremists/Liberal whatevers every chance he gets :D

McGuinn and McGuire still getting higher in L.A... you know where that's at!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm ultradamno:

Scratch Acid's Damned For All Time does almost make it worth it, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Dragged to church & even church school when very young
- but I learned far more about the Bible from JC Superstar. Its great Writing & Performing - & it isn't absolutely about blind faith @ all. I rather like it.
Godspell also great Writing & Performing - yet simultaneously less Biblical & more Preachy...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Kat in Chicago:

I hear some "Chestnut Mare" in there
Avatar 8:01pm JakeGould:

This sounds like Christian strip club music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm mariano:

If you're doing Christian soul, can't go wrong with Al Green's "Jesus Is Waiting". OMG, @ultradamno, I haven't thought of that Scratch Acid cover in probably decades, thanks for the reminder! @RevRabbit: I really like some of the playing on the original JCSS concept album. One of the guitarists from Roxy Music is on it iirc.

@ultradamno: One really funny Chick parody I remember, from the 90s, is called A Patriarchy's Worst Nightmare, a takeoff on A Demon's Worst Nightmare. Ooh, look what I found, an archive of Chick parodies! www.monsterwax.com...

I'm quite sure they play Dana Howard at Guantánamo.

Was this the theme to seventies christian sit-com about a young woman at a christian college striving to get her MRS degree?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm mariano:

"Come Quickly"? [Butthead laugh] There's this hymn, "Just As I Am" that has the refrain "O Lamb of Go-od I come.... IIIIII come." My mom kept asking me why I'd squeal with laughter when they sang it at the church they were going to. I explained it to her and she said "Oh great, thanks for ruining it for me, douchebag!"
  8:42pm CC:

Correction...I meant Hell...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Kat in Chicago:

I definitely remember that hymn, mariano. Your mom calls you "douchebag"??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm fleep:

Clinging to the older model God as bipolar punishment freak was a good way to keep people in line, the underlying purpose of organized religion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm ultradamno:

Well, now I'm terrified.
  8:46pm Listener Robert:

@mariano "You Bet Your Soul" parodies "Somebody Goofed", if that makes it any easier to find. That may be Chick's easiest to parody, since Chick's original is done in a jocular style.
Avatar 8:46pm coelacanth∅:

my mother's no angel, and she says "shit" a lot, but i'd bet she's never said "douchebag". i'd crack up if she did!

@coela: My mom swore like a sailor, even when she went through her unfortunate Baptist phase in the 80s. One of her favorite quips when I was being argumentative with "if"s was "If my aunt were my uncle she'd have balls. But she isn't so she doesn't." @Robert: thanks, looking it up right now!

OMG, this is perfect for xmas eve. Haha thanks Micah! My main memories of 1970s Jesus Freaks as young teen: 1-Had to go to sleepover Jewish summer camp and one of hour hippie Jesus Freak counselors brought JC Superstar with her and made us all listen to it. Loved it. 2-Two Jesus Freak dudes accosted my friend and me at the mall and tried to convert us. They wanted us to come to some meeting with them, and we were afraid they were trying to get us to join their cult, so we ran away! haha
