Confluence of Music and Theology

Shannon Johnston years ago introduced me to the practice of reading philosophy with appropriate music when he recommended reading Nietzsche whilst listening to Wagner. Shannon has gone on to bigger (and hopefully better) things, but that advice had stuck.

Which is a long winded way to say that this essay immediately brought this song to mind.

While I like most of the '80's girl bands, the Belle Stars never really seemed to get my interest.
The US Episcopal Church seems determined to marginalize and disgust most of it's mainstream members.

When you appeal only to the radical elements, eventually you will lose your primary support. Many organizations seem to be finding this out lately.
