The Fray Roars: 'We don't call ourselves a Christian band because that term has so many connotations, and people can take it the wrong way. We make music that represents what we believe in and we just think the term 'Christian band' can be very limiting. We want to play to as many people as we can. We're musicians first, not pastors or preachers'

Sufjan On Christmas: 'I'm interested in reconciling this phenomenal event -- the incarnation of God--with Santa Claus and blue-light specials at Kmart and the weird preoccupation we have with buying a lot of junk and giving it to each other..'
Jars Frontman Roars: 'Christian' is a label that has no musical basis... arbitrary and uncharacteristic of genre labels (which) are used to describe a musical style....there is an assumption that has been perpetuated by critics who want to use the label. Why make a 'genre" descriptor based on a worldview?'
