Keep Taylor Swift's new album AWAY from your children

Taylor Swift's latest album, Tortured Poets Department openly and repeatedly mocks Christianity and the Christian faith. Such blasphemy has no place in the hearts and homes of our children.

Shane Pruitt from the Southern Baptist Convention's North American Mission Board specifically cited lyrics from the song But Daddy I love him," in which Swift states: "But daddy I love him / I just learned these people only raise you / To cage you...I just learned these people try and save you 'cause they hate you." This, according to Pruitt, portrays a critical stance towards Christian upbringing and judgemental attitudes.

In another song, 'Guilty As Sin,' the billionaire popstar sings: 'What if I roll the stone away? / They're gonna crucify me anyway / What if the way you hold me is actually what's holy.'

Swift further sings: "God save the most judgemental creeps," which some suggest is pointing towards hypocrisy within the Christian faith.

The album's explicit content has also raised concerns about its appropriateness for young Christian audiences.

Pruitt, reflecting on his listening preferences, pondered, "As Christians, who are filled with the Spirit, should we be entertained by, sing with, and expose our kids to lyrics that aren't just different than what you believe, but are actually mocking what you believe?"

Popular worship leader Sean Feucht posted on X "Almost half the songs on Taylor Swift's new album...make fun Christians and straight up blaspheme God,

"Is this the kind of music you want your kids listening to?"

Additionally, Christian media organisation MovieGuide labelled the album as one that "mocks Christianity," in a review of the album, criticising it for undermining Christian sexual ethics. They stated: “While it's no secret that Taylor Swift is not a Christian, she made her hatred for religion known through her newly released album."

Earlier this year, former Boyzone star Shane Lynch claimed Taylor Swift performs “Satanic rituals” in front of fans.

Lynch, a devout Christian, told Sunday World that he believes Swift is an advocate of satanism, as he has accused artists like Sam Smith and Beyonce of being.

“I think when you’re looking at a lot of the artists out there, a lot of their stage shows are Satanic rituals live in front of 20,000 people without them realizing and recognizing,” Lynch said.

“Even down to Taylor Swift — one of the biggest artists in the world — you watch one of her shows and she has two or three different demonic rituals to do with the pentagrams on the ground, to do with all sorts of stuff on her stage,” he continued. “But to a lot of people, it’s just art and that’s how people are seeing it, unfortunately.”
