As we recently reported, country singer Carrie Underwood has become a new target for atheist activists, following her release of “Something in the Water”, which expresses her feelings towards God and highlights experiences like baptism.
As many of you know, water baptism is practiced almost universally by Christians, and is believed to be the sacrament through which a believer is identified with Jesus Christ.
“It’s a really kind of joyous, uplifting song about changing your life for the better and kind of having that ‘a-ha’ moment, to waking up and you life being different from that moment forward,” Underwood told reporters.
Although the song expresses her own personal beliefs, she has faced immense criticism for it.
“I’m not the first person to sing about God, Jesus, faith, or any of that, and I won’t be the last,” Underwood said of her critics. “And it won’t be the last for me either. If you don’t like it, change the channel.”
