Since I began my journey away from religion, whenever a religious song (not a hymn or even worship, just religious) pops into my shuffle I've begun to immediately skip it. I can't bring myself to get rid of them because I love the music, but the message just irks me now.

I'm just curious if anyone still listens to their Christian music just for the love of the music. It feels sort of hypocritical for me to listen to it and enjoy it but I mean it is just music.

Initially, yes, it severely bothered me, but mostly because it brought back bad memories. Also I started to really pay attention to the lyrics for the first time ("...from the earth to the grave, to the grave to the sky, Lord I lift your name on high..." I never realized how morbid that sounded) But I had to get used to it, working in a Catholic hospital in the Bible belt, a lot of nurses listen to Christian music at the desk, and it's allowed. With therapy and time, you'll start to not care. It's still annoying, and I never found Christian music to be audiably pleasing, except in rare cases like a catchy Stacie Orrico or Rebecca St. James song, but I haven't listened to either of them since I left Christianity behind.
