Jennifer Knapp Reveals She is a Lesbian; How Do We React?

Earlier today, an interview with Jennifer Knapp, a popular Christian music artist from 1998-2002 who recently announced a comeback to music, was posted on the Christianity Today website.  In the interview, Jennifer Knapp reveals that she is a lesbian and has had a relationship with a same-sex partner for eight years.  But she says that's not the point.  I urge you all to read the intervi

Radiohead and the Free Music Revolution

For some reason, that WOW album gets one more vote than the others and wins. Yipee.
