I just love it when people raised on religion have to wrestle with it, and what’s more punk than playing explicitly religious music to a punk crowd, pissing them off in the process? As Brian Ritchie said, “it’s more punk to defy your audience than to play what they want to hear.” Amazing that some high-schooler wrote all these songs.
