Christploitation

  • Vocalist Burton C. Bell explained this attack on the Christian faith: "Christianity has become a parody of itself. Through the ages, exploitation of myths, words, and the use of the fear tactic, have ruled the masses. We have seen so much death and destruction in the name of a man made god that it means nothing. What is faith, but the belief in an archaic superstition; an overwhelming fear to face reality of the world today. Invoking the name of Christ has become a common practice. The original concept does not apply. This is control through conformity and a false sense of morality."
