One More Reason to Stay Away from Hillsong

I know I'm a little late on this story, but it still needs to be shared. As if we needed more reasons to boycott Hillsong Church and the girly, sissified music that they've launched upon the contemporary Christian music scene, the gang from down under has given us another good reason to keep our distance. Apparently Hillsong is entering the rap scene (gotta stay relevant after all!). Not only did they enlist Ed Young, Jr. to create a promo video for their 2010 conference (you know Young, the "pastor" who is currently in the midst of controversy regarding his use of a private jet and lavish vacations, among other things), but they had Young do this:

You can see more on this here at the Museum of Idolatry.

The question is, does this reflect worse on Young or on Hillsong? Well, I think it's safe to say that neither party wins in this situation. Yikes.
