When my kids are with me, we listen to contemporary Christian songs. And most of their friends listen to the same songs. The hours Emily spends each week in gymnastics is different story. You would think that a YMCA would not allow songs by Lady Gaga to be played.
Here's where this is coming from. While on vacation, we were flipping through radio stations in the car and in passing, one song immediately caused Emily to sing along. Come to find that it was a song by Lady Gaga. Not knowing much about her, I didn't a little research. All I knew before was that she is freakishly weird. After just 15 minutes worth of reading, I'm appauled that the YMCA would allow such songs to be played during any program there! In her songs, Lady Gaga twists Biblical beliefs to promote sin. It's just horrible.
Our YMCA has comment cards and I definitely plan to submit one. They probably don't even realize what they are playing. Most people don't really listen to complete phrases in songs or bother to learn the meaning behind them. They just hear a catchy beat and think it's a fun song. I really hope and pray that they will take my comments seriously.
