    Many (most?) so-called "gospel" songs were plagiarized, borrowed, and otherwise appropriated (without permission) from various folk and other songs, including some military songs.

    So by your argument, these "gospel" songs are also "stupid" because they defy the original songs from which they sprang?

    Nonsense.

    "PC has taken over our schools." I wonder if you even see the irony of your comment.

    "If we allow this to become common place"

    Allow? That concept is scarier than what was or was not sung in the song.

    It is not up to you to allow or disallow it.

    Anyone who sings this song can choose to sing "Lord" or "Oh" as they please.

    Only the Christian militants are worrying about this.

    If we allow this to become common place, it will be hard to ever get God placed back into things. We need to kindly, but firmly and meaningfully stand up when this happens.

    People actually watch the voice? There are countless better programs on TV and infinitely more better things to do with one's time than watch TV.

    I attended a college student concert last night.
    The choir did Kurt Bestor's Prayer of the Children and removed the word "Jesus" throughout. I guess a prayer shouldn't use deity.
    But they were fine with a homosexual act where two girls sang Take Me or Leave Me with a bit of twerking thrown in.
