You may remember the “Christian” rock band from the late ’90s and early ‘2000s, Caedmon’s Call, which featured popular singers such as Doug Elmore, Cari Harris Moore, and Derek Webb. Webb was the recipient of three GMA Dove awards, 10 nominations for the award, and six number-one songs on Christian radio.
Webb later apostatized and left the band only to return a short time later to record an album in 2007.
But now, Webb is back again, and he’s recording a “Christian” album with a drag queen who goes by the name Flamy Grant. Also,
Last year, The Dissenter reported last year that Grace Semler Baldridge–who goes by the stage name, Semler–had topped Lauren Daigle for the number one spot on the Christian music charts on iTunes. Baldridge was also nominated by GLAAD for the 2020 Award for Outstanding Digital Journalism for her documentary series, State Of Grace, and push against “gay conversion therapy.”
And in 2022, the queer “gospel” artist is still topping the charts as she makes the number one spot on Now Entertainment’s new songs list with her song, Don’t Tell Anyone, which features swear words and really, absolutely nothing about God.
These are the people that Webb, your popular Christian worship leader from your youth, is now teaming up with. It’s sad that what Christians have held up as “Christianity” in the past has led to such flagrant deconstruction and apostasy. We need to take our eyes off the so-called Christian celebrities of the day and put our focus back on the Word of God. These people would be wise to remove the name of Christ from their lips altogether as it will go easier for them on the day of judgment.
