Does this Parachute work?
Word that there was going to be a protest at the Christian music event, Parachute, over Nesian Mystik performing because only half the band are committed Christians is a good thing. Christianity needs to review it’s own mental health as a religion just as much as Islam needs to. Extremist Christians need to be challenged within Christianity as it attempts to balance the literal and metaphorical definitions of the Bible, and to see such extreme views being challenged by the organizers of Parachute is a positive thing.
Complaints over mainstream artist at Christian festival
Complaints have been made that a mainstream hiphop band is one of the headline acts at a Christian music festival.
The three-day Parachute event began at the Mystery Creek Event Centre on Friday night, but some people are upset that Nesian Mystik has been asked to perform. Parachute Music chief executive Mark de Jong says they have received some complaints from people threatening to boycott the event, because only half of the group are committed Christians. One man says he will picket outside the gate.
