Why do so many Catholics listen to music with immoral or sinful messages?


#1

I'm confused and saddened to see so many of my fellow Catholics choosing "entertainment" that does nothing to glorify God and, in most cases, is just plain sinful in message. Even on this site, there are a lot of posts with people discussing how much they like Lady Gaga, etc. As a practicing Catholic, why would you even consider this type of entertainment?
