Still, there’s nothing new under the sun and Musgraves’ worldview is just a rehashed version of what the serpent used to tempt Eve in the Garden of Eden. The devil didn’t preach much to Eve. He did something more powerful: He essentially got Eve to question God’s motives, bringing to her mind that perhaps God was trying to keep what really makes life enjoyable and meaningful away from her and Adam. Musgraves has bought into the same “apple,” and would love to have music fans everywhere join her in the fruity snack.
Terrifyingly dumb Christian blog post about Kacey Musgraves, the underpublicized temptress of the Grammys. I have so many questions for this guy. Has he ever listened to a country song before? Or any pop song? Nearly all songs are more suited for his ostensible purpose—rooting out the malicious influences in culture—than this one. Wait until these guys discover black metal! While Kacey is singing about making choices that are authentic to who you are, other people are dramatizing actual bad behavior (which is awesome too).
But it wasn’t chosen out of sheer stupidity. It was chosen because it’s not a logical target. The piece is not just a poorly supported interpretation. It also proves that even Christian online mags are slaves to a content farming insta-pinion mindset.
