Re: 'American Idol' Producers Tell Colton Dixon Faith Tweets Can Cost Him Votes
I think the Kris Allen example would indicate that being a professing Christian on the show may help one's chances. Not that it really matters anyway. The show is silly. I think the anti-Christian melodrama from believers these days is larglely overblown. I think that the voting evidence suggests that most Americans are still very conservative in their value sets. In reality, I think Adam Lambert's flaming persona hurt his chances when he was on American Idol because of this very reason. He was by far the more talented singer; however, how he presented himself did not really resonate well with the majority of conservative Americans.
