Do you alter words to songs that have religious meanings?

Like baby baluga. My version is sky above and sea below. As I don't particularily feel comfortable saying heaven.

  • No. I will sing along with the song as it's written. If I am not comfortable with the message in the song, then I won't listen to it. That goes for other non-religious songs as well.

  • If a song had a message I don't approve of, DS doesn't hear it. It's not about religious content (he begs for Christmas music as soon as it gets cold every year), but the intent behind it. Go Rest High on that Mountain vs Babylon

  • No. If a song has religious meaning that makes me uncomfortable, I just won't sing it. But then, I was in traveling choirs and sang all sorts of religiony stuff; I don't assume anything about someone's beliefs based on their performing a song. Do other people?

    Guess that would make those schools that insert one Jewish song about a little dreidle amidst all of their drummer boys and virgins as attempting to proselytize?

  • Not really, but I do find myself scratching my head about some of the sings that are being considered Christian now. Since when is You of a Nation by P.O.D a Christian Gospel song?
