A gig is a gig man, would you not play at a jewish wedding or something? Yeah you have to listen to them drivel about jesus for hours, but your role isn't any different, and it's hardly the worst thing you could have to listen to while you wait.

I say play it, and I'm a firm athiest, a gig is a gig.

I didn't get paid for tonight, and tonight was a straight up ritual. I joined to play music for the sake of playing music with no other reasons attached. This is a school club.

I'll play for religious groups and whatever if I have incentive to be there. I've been paid for a religious gig before, it's no big deal to me. But I have no desire to volunteer for it, and it's especially bad that they lied to me to get me into the situation. If I support a group I don't care for, they'd better be supporting me. That's the way I work.

I probably would not have played the gig. Not because I am anti-christian (altho I'm not a huge fan of religion) but I just think, if they are there to worship their god, let them do so. If you really did not want to be there, you should not have gone. Music is about enjoying what you are doing, if you have 0 interest in their rituals and you are not going to enjoy yourself, don't go.

You didn't make a commitment to playing the church service. You made a commitment to the band. The band made the commitment to the service. Especially in a large band setting, you aren't going to have the entire musical group of like mind 100% of the time. And you're gonna play gigs that you didn't want to play.

Our bylaws don't require us to go to any performances. We're in it for fun, to require participation is against everyone's beliefs.

It is a school club, btw. Not something we do for compensation.

That wierd feeling you get  from playing during the rituals is JESUS TALKING TO YOU.

What makes your ritual worship better or different than another religion that offers animals as part of its worship?

Oh good, this has turned into another "Christians are Dumb" thread. I was wondering how long it would take.
