“Daigle views the church as the villain in this story for demanding orthopraxis. She views the rebellious son as a victim who is rejected by the church for being a homosexual.”
(Ray Fava – Evangelical Dark Web) Celebrity culture is toxic even within “Christianity.” People who arose through seemingly honest intentions, portending themselves as believers only for the facade to be revealed over time as they acquire wealth and fame. Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) is loaded with numerous figures who through fame revealed themselves to be counterfeit….
The latest and greatest example would be Lauren Daigle, whose career trajectory places her at the top of CCM genre as she expands her audience to more secular circles through her latest, self-titled album.
It is not inherently problematic that she has shifted towards a quasi-secular style of music since music and art are a means of competing with the world on their turf. Thus, it would be an unfair criticism to apply to her, but not Christian movies like Nefarious or The Passion of the Christ. Yet the underlying reasons suggest that Daigle, who has arisen predominately through a Christian music industry is shifting secular because that reflects her own beliefs, or lack thereof.
