Pope Cracks Down On "Modern" Music In Churches
One of the main reasons I'd leave the Catholic Church is the abysmal music that you have to endure at Sunday mass. But somehow I don't trust Pope Benedict to make things better. He doesn't like the women trilling away on acoustic guitars any more than I do. But if only the Pope realized how silly it was for him to say, "It is possible to modernise holy music, but it should not happen outside the traditional path of Gregorian chants or sacred polyphonic choral music." Modern Gregorian chants? Watch out, Jay-Z.
