I was just wondering. I met a few of the members in my friends band. I'm playing guitar and bass for them. I know my friend Niki is catholic, but it never really mattered to me. anyway, when I met the other members, I found out that all three of them were either catholic or another branch of Christianity. it's cool with me, but it was a little awkward when we busted out the old testament looking for ideas for a band name. lol too me, the only thing that could come out of the bible worth while is something dark, brutal and metal sounding.

The drummer and guitarist in my band are both christians. I write all the songs and they know where I stand on life. We don't talk about it much but when we do everybody is respectful.
Yes i have been in one band in the past that was very interesting. lol both the drummer and guitarist were staunch methodists, and me, being a staunch atheist, found much disagreement. we eventually broke up.
Most singer songwriters I know are theists, well at least outwardly. I'd bet many of them are like I used to be - don't offend and go with the flow. This approach was bearable until god and country became synonomous.
I never had a problem with it..but when I write a song about religion and the harm it does...I know it would be offensive. so...i guess it would stifle my creativity.

I've had a lot of people come and go over the course of building a live band for my music project. Thankfully, everyone I've worked with has been as tolerant of my views as I am of theirs, so long as we don't need to talk about it.  The content of my work incorporates a variety of views, especially the work of HP Lovecraft, which could be considered as valid a religious concept as any, and certainly more exciting. I do make critical statements in content of my lyrics, but it's not overly obvious. If you know it's there, or tend to look at things similarly as I do, you'll find it.
