This post is maybe a bit more thought out than my last one:
There have been a few occasions of late when i was in a business and the music selected by the staff was a bit abrasive. Now, me not liking the music playing over the speakers at a business is not an uncommon occurrence. I live in rural Ontario and "country" seems to be the music of choice for most stores. I am not a big country fan. Some places will go with pop or soft rock, which maybe aren't my faves either, but i don't mind them. Anyhow, I usually just shrug and think: it's not my business and it is therefore none of my business.
But there are a few businesses in my town that have been playing Christian rock/pop. Ok, guilty confession time: I think the lead singer of Skillet is super-hot, and I love the song Monster, but apart from that... not a big Christian Rock fan... obvious reasons. Not only did i not personally enjoy the music, but i found it made me rather uncomfortable.
In one instance it was a used book store, and i felt awkward about what books i was looking at... do you think that shy, little me could work up the nerve to ask if they had any Dawkins? The other time was at a chiropractic office. I honesty started worrying that the guy would try to save my soul while aligning my spine. I was tempted to go with a different doctor.
Now had these places been Christian bookstores, a church, my mom's living room, etc. this music would be, still not MY choice, but appropriate. These stores really should consider that not all of their clients share their belief system. They may feel they are creating a peaceful atmosphere, but they may actually costing themselves business. Come on people, if you want that spiritual feel without freaking out the customers, slap in some Enya!
