Subject: RE: Folk artists who are pagan
Not really Eric, but it's given us a good discussion about semantics and brings a lot of insight into some of the songs people write or perform.

I'm Christian. I've got a lot of friends who are not. Apart from one or two differences, basically the tennents are the same... the major ones being 'harm no-one' and 'do unto others as you would be done by'.

I don't sing exclusively Christian songs, but neither do I omit 'pagan' songs. If I felt it was right, I'd do 'The Burning Times' just as if I felt it were right, I'd do 'Christ is my strength and refuge' (it goes to the Dambusters march). Mostly I do songs about life, and all religion is about life or afterlife.
