If you want to know just how low we’ve gone not only as a nation, but just how irrelevant we’ve collectively become as the Church, look no further than what passes as “Christian” music in the worship music industry.
You may remember the ever-popular “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 collaborated on a “Christian” album with a drag queen who goes by the name Flamy Grant.
In 2021, The Dissenter reported that Grace Semler Baldridge—an open lesbian who goes by the stage name, Semler—had beaten out 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.”
But who would have guessed that a drag queen, a transvestite, a man who mockingly dresses as a caricature of a woman, would actually top the “Christian music” charts in 2023? But that’s exactly what is happening. These literal fat sex clowns have garnered such support from the world that even those who profess Christianity are flocking to them. But why?

We can trace this trend, at least in part, to a perversion of the Biblical call to love. In reality, it is nothing short of a spiritual disaster, a tragic distortion of Scripture’s call to love without affirming sin. The church’s complicity in blurring God-given lines between holiness and blatant sexual sin is a betrayal of our role as stewards of biblical truth.
Has Lauren Daigle, or Charity Gayle, or anyone from Elevation spoken out against this? Of course not—they would lose their own status at the top of the charts if they did. Our call is not to adjust to society’s whims but to unfalteringly uphold the unchanging Word of God. We must love our neighbors, yes, but not at the expense of God’s holy decrees. It’s time for the Church to wake up and remember its holy calling before it’s too late.
