so what's all the controversy? (: mewithoutYou, Jesus and Allah

The singer is friends with Shane Claiborne, so he can't be a heretic, right (: ?

Jerry Bolton (check out his blog) offers a helpful review of the
mewithoutYou album,
"it's all crazy! it's all false! it's all a dream! it's alright."

It's found on Phantom Tollbooth here,

and deals well with the obviously most controversial song for some Christian listeners..
and for a band whose CDs are sometimes sold in Christian stores (on the cut-out rack anyway),,

See also, on same hot topic:

"mewithoutYou: Using 'Allah' to Praise God?" and "Allah=Olé?".

That song, by the way, is fast turning into a model of audience participation...all it takes to get it kiskstarted is placing the drummer amongst the people(...which we do at church, btw). See first video below!

If the band as new to you, you might want to read a previous post ("I didn't buy cigarettes at Berean, but I did find this.." )first, before diving in deep below(:
