That's OK, I'm only afraid that soon after that the Christian community will say that all other channels should be censored, and more Christian bands should be played on all of them. It's hard to stop God once he gains momentum
YES YOUR RIGHT Sirius is on a campaign to convert the nation to Christianity!!!!!!!!!ONWARD WE CHRISTIANS MARCH!!!!!!!!!

Oh wait I forgot...they are bringing that Howard Stern Guy too.
I could not agree with this more! Let's call for a banning of the christian rock channels. I think it's a discrase to the religion.

Upon reading your post, I immediately thought of the song "Paranoid", by Black Sabbath.

Many Christians of the fundamentalist variety despise Christian Rock, and certainly wouldn't demand that it be played on all channels.

You can go in virtually any music store in the country today and buy gangsta rap, death metal etc. with violent and obscene lyrics. So I'd say thus far the Christian censorship boogeymen have completely failed in banning music they don't like.

To think they could "take over" Sirius is sheer paranoia.

So let me get this straight. you are willing to pay for Shade 45 which is dedicated to man who writes lyrics like this:
Song: Just Don't Give A Fuck
Chorus:

So when you see me on your block with two glocks
Screamin _Fuck the World_ like Tupac
I just don't give a fuuuuuck!!
Talkin that shit behind my back, dirty mackin
tellin your boys that I'm on crack
I just don't give a fuuuuuck!!
So put my tape back on the rack
Go run and tell your friends my shit is wack
I just don't give a fuuuuuck!!
But see me on the street and duck
Cause you gon' get stuck, stoned, and snuffed
Cause I just don't give a fuuuuuck!!


Song: Still Don't Give a Fuck

Chorus:

For all the weed that I've smoked - yo this blunt's for you
To all the people I've offended - yeah fuck you too!
To all the friends I used to have - yo I miss my past
But the rest of you assholes can KISS MY ASS
For all the drugs that I've done - yo I'm still gon' do
To all the people I've offended - yeah fuck you too!
For everytime I reminisce - yo I miss my past
But I still don't give a fuck, y'all can KISS MY ASS

Song: Kill You

They said I can't rap about bein broke no more
They ain't say I can't rap about coke no more
(AHHH!) Slut, you think I won't choke no whore
til the vocal cords don't work in her throat no more?!
(AHHH!) These motherfuckers are thinkin I'm playin
Thinkin I'm sayin the shit cause I'm thinkin it just to be sayin it
(AHHH!) Put your hands down bitch, I ain't gon' shoot you
I'ma pull +YOU+ to this bullet, and put it through you
(AHHH!) Shut up slut, you're causin too much chaos
Just bend over and take it like a slut, okay Ma?
"Oh, now he's raping his own mother, abusing a whore,
snorting coke, and we gave him the Rolling Stone cover?"
You god damn right BITCH, and now it's too late
I'm triple platinum and tragedies happen in two states
I invented violence, you vile venomous volatile bitches
vain Vicadin, vrinnn Vrinnn, VRINNN! {*chainsaw revs up*}
Texas Chainsaw, left his brains all
danglin from his neck, while his head barely hangs on
Blood, guts, guns, cuts
Knives, lives, wives, nuns, sluts

Chorus: Eminem

Bitch I'ma kill you! You don't wanna fuck with me
Girls neither - you ain't nuttin but a slut to me
Bitch I'ma kill you! You ain't got the balls to beef
We ain't gon' never stop beefin I don't squash the beef
You better kill me! I'ma be another rapper dead
for poppin off at the mouth with shit I shouldn'ta said
But when they kill me - I'm bringin the world with me
Bitches too! You ain't nuttin but a girl to me
.. I said you don't, wanna fuck with Shady (cause why?)
Cause Shady, will fuckin kill you (ah-haha)
I said you don't, wanna fuck with Shady (why?)
Cause Shady, will fuckin kill you..



but you are not willing to pay for music that has lyrics like this:

DJ MAJ
SONG: UNDER PRESSURE
Chorus

living it up under pressure
giving it all the game called life
gotta be true to the letter
cause if I want to receive
giving love is the key

Verse 2

johnny’s got a family to feed
how can he supply all their needs
the job he has doesn’t pay enough
things have gotten a little rough now he’s
had to get another job his children won’t ever see their pops
now he’s out there struggling at the corner
store out there hustling should he

keep on doing what he’s doing
a new job he’s pursuing
be the man he’s created to be his family needs him around
hit is knees and start praying
please hear what i’m saying

another day in the life of a person like me and you ooh ooh oooh

Chorus

Rap

he did it legitimate with no concocting
family man with 2 seeds and stock option and options
past what the mind can grasp occupation’s task
giving what ever he’s asking she
presents the offer but he simply declines it
naiveté? or real man with grand plan
revelation of the 7th command and pierced hands
contrary to the popular stands of lets dance
he plans to raise a generation of babies on
morals of grand momma and boogie to steve wonder
cause God blessed the child with soul claps and thunder
escape from every plunder when pressure is what we’re under

Chorus

Living under pressure got to give it to
this game called life (repeat 3x)


Title: Where Were You
Artist: KJ-52

Lyrics: daddy why did u do that to mommy?
you said if we hit somebody we're suppose to say sorry
but you never say sorry daddy you yell now
why did you tell that man that mommy just fell down
mommy didnt fall down daddy's lying
mommy why are you always sad and always crying?
daddy why are you always mad you always fighting?
why do you always say im bad even when im trying?
no i dont want to go to my room
i dont want to go to bed now i want to be with you
i dont want to daddy it's to early
i didnt mean it daddy im sorry im sorry
i promise i'll never say that again
im sorry daddy please dont hit me again
please i'll be a good boy now
dont put me in the room please dont turn the lights out
(what did i do?
im sorry daddy that's all i want to say to you)
CHORUS
where?where were you? just when i needed you
daddy where were you
where?where were you?just when i needed you
mommy where were you
(golden child)
what up pops i aint got to tell you my heart is as hard
as a rock things have changed since i was the age six
yet some situations stay the same like the way
i conceal my pain growing up i'd swear
my name was every profane thing a man could say
i used to make excuses like you werent the one that hit her
it was just the liquor in ya my dad
the perfect example of hatred and why am i so bitter?
ya told me real men dont cry that was a lie
you dont relize what goes on inside of my mind
as time passed my heart ran cold my emotions froze
lost track of the bruises and the broken bones
just once wanted to hear that you loved me
wrap your arms around me and hug me yeah right
remember the first time i couldnt feel the pain
it was when grandma came and took me to church
where God releived the hurt and he knows it took work
but i forgave you he could save you but the question in
will you let him in it would be such a blessing
to see you as a changed man and holdin my mothers hand
CHORUS


Wow I think you are right! It seems those Christian lyrics are dangerous! They may prove to be a hurtful influence on those who would mistakenly tune in! I mean songs that talk about forgiveness, love, and challenge the listeners to live a moral life should be avoided at all cost. There should be no room for channels that have such a positive message! It may confuse many people.


It is your money; so if you have no desire to pay for such unbelievably positive music, then by all means cancel your subscription. Please let me know when you do so I can get another subscription to replace yours. I would like to show my support to Sirius for providing music with a positive message to all of us dumb people who desire that kind of thing.

I agree 100%. Cancel your subscription if you are so darn bother. These hypocrites always want it one way... THEIR WAY! Getting subscription to take up the slack for those that cancel won't be a big deal. I already know a few people that may subscribe once these two Christian channels are added because before these channels were added they didn't feel there was enough content to satisfy them, now they do.

As a Christian, I kinda doubt I'll be listening to Revolution much. Unless they have a dedicated show or time slot to indie bands such as Starflyer 59, Pedro the Lion and Velour 100 (RIP), and hardcore and metal bands such as Training for Utopia, Zao and Demon Hunter, I doubt I'll be interested.

I can understand people being ticked off about their favorite stream being kicked off due to this, I know I'd be pretty hacked if my favorite stream (Underground Garage) was knocked to make room for a Tejano stream or something. No offense was meant toward any Tejano fans here, I just don't care for it.

But like I said, I'm not particularly excited about this. How about a dedicated punk and hardcore stream? I guarantee that's what I'd listen to more than anything other than Underground Garage.

What positive message is there in telling lies about mythological gods that don't exsist and never have ?

How about instead of looking up to the sky for answers we look at ourselves and stop chasing promises of after life rewards ?

Religion is the single most destructive influence in the history of our planet.

You guys all like that you are getting this channel and cool, I hope you enjoy it, but there are a lot of people that disagree with adding more religious programs.

There are more christians in this country then any of the other major religions, but that doesn't mean that every single one of them wants Sirius. My parents are christians I will guarantee they will never get Sirius, and wouldn't care if there was christian music or programming

I know I don't have to listen, and I won't. I know there are other channels I don't like that I am paying for by subscribing, and I know that there are channels that you don't like that you are paying for as well.

What I am not doing is saying that we are better or our message is right and yours is wrong or saying that one is more important.

Not everyone thinks religion is a positive thing.

Wow...a classic atheist who thinks religion is bad. Its America, you can think that way. Im sure you prob dont believe America is the greatest country though do you? Cause well you see...we were founded on the freedom of religion. If religion is bad then you would logically be against freedom of religion because that would hurt the society right?

I'm not afraid that Sirius is getting too religious - they are just trying desperately to appeal to the most potential listeners. Hence the deal with Sprint, the censorship, christian rock, moving towards FM-like (hits-only with lots of repetition) format on most stations, etc. They are periodically reviewing their lineup and unscrupoulously dropping the least popular (according to their understanding) channels to free up space for something that some of the big wigs think has broader appeal. They have a history of reversing decisions. I'm pretty sure that the cheap shot at the Christian community with channel dedicated to such awful music will be accounted as a failure at the next review and "The Revolution" will be over.

Yes they wanted the right to believe in what ever religion they wanted, without the government telling them which one was right or wrong. christians were and still are killing each other where them came fromfor the most part because catholics were wrong or protestants were getting killed because they didn't believe in the pope.

The ones that were from England lived with their king, who had his own religion, and you could be jailed for practicing another type of religion. That's what they wanted to get away from. Read a history book sometime instead of just the fairy tales in the bible.

They also wanted this in the 1770s, before Darwin and other advancments in science. Remember there were people that still argued that the world was flat in 1770 and before Ben Franklin flew a kite, before that people thought lighning was the act of an angry god, not static electricity.

The world is a different place today and just because the early settlers still thought there was a god almost 300 years ago doesn't mean there is one.

These people also thought it was okay to have slaves, should we bring back slaevery because the founding fathers believed in it ?
