American Idol wants less Christian references

Colton Dixon from Murfreesboro Tenn., an American Idol contestant was asked to tone down his Christian references...

Now I think there's a need to increase his religious references, don't ya'll agree?

HECK YES! I know you all have given me crap about watching this show- and honestly I haven't really been keeping up with it much this year. Colton is one of the better singers on the show. I call him skunk-hair b/c I can't remember his name half the time.

Whatever happened to religious freedom? It's a shame that A.I. wants to stay away from anything religion oriented b/c someday they will have to answer to God all Mighty on why they asked him to do that. Glad it's not me that has to answer that Q.

American idol is having a problem with Christian references? Now isn't that just to darn bad. I hope this becomes a great big issue for them or maybe they don't want Christian money! Let's see 40 to 50 million votes a week at a buck a vote?
Plus all the others, really!
I was not a Tebow fan for the longest time but the man wears his Christianity on his sleeve, it is about time for us to put on our Christian outfits and start making some noise!
If American idol continues this verbal assault perhaps they don't need me to watch their very secular program.

haha that old fart was hilarious!
I have actually stopped watching A.I. so much... It just isn't that good anymore. I do like the girl who is fake-baked orange who sings mostly country and there's a guy on there with a mow-hawk that is a truely good singer.

Just a head up for those of you who watch this show--- DVR it and then watch it. A 2 hour show will literally take you about 25 min to watch.

Last Wednesday night Colton sang the song "Lighthouse". As far as I'm concerned that is a great Christian song. The people who run idol are clueless
about what they complain about. They refuse to see or hear!!!!

And guess what, it didn't hurt their ratings at all!
Well I guess God is still in charge, and just wait for the change!!!

Did you see the next night when they said that "Colton got too 'emotional' singing that song". ummmm, when you are a Christian like this young man, singing to your Lord and Savior, why not show how much you love Him? Those were GENUINE tears, not "made for TV".
