I was reading over alot of the answers and many of you thought it was just awesome that the owner played Christian music Or just didn't understand why she wouldn't want to listen to it...
So let me ask you this. Would you want to take your kids to a resturant where they were singing prases to Pagan or Islamic gods and/or goddesses??
It's the same type of thing. Those of us that are not Christian are forced to just "blow it off" or "tune it out" even though it's not what we feel is right. Now, while I personally wouldn't really care, I don't think that ANY religion should be shown preferance to in a public forum. NONE at all!! If you want to listen to religious music at home, in your car or even at a religion based store that's great.
But living in a country where we have a freedom of religion we should also have freedom FROM religion.

This is my answer for the other post.
Lots of public places play music, I either like it or I don't. I'm not sure how you are defining "christian music" but I'm not keen on christian rock (although my daughter listens to a lot of it) but I love Christmas carols. I have to say that I much prefer christian music over rap and hip hop any day, I can't stand opera or country and who the hell likes elevator music? Given those choices I would take christian music any day.

I honestly wouldn't go to a restaurant that played the kind of music you are talking about. Only b/c it would prove to me that I am eating food sacrificed to other's idols. That is a no no to me. I dodn't read the other post(yet,)but I don't feel anyone should have to eat someowhere and listen to music they don't like. If i was somone who claimed to be tolerant. Which I don't. That would be lieing. I don't see how the music would offend me.
