Thread Name: Do you need to *believe* what you sing?
Subject: RE: Do you need to *believe* what you sing?
Yes, i would have a problem reciting the Nicene Creed. Singing a song is singing a song. Reading out an affirmation of belief, in a context where people would assume that if you're saying it, you mean it, seems different to me and I wouldnt do it. I will sing "My name is Captain Kidd". I would not swear to that effect on a Holy Bible.
