Sydney, Australia — Hillsong’s “Naked Cowboy” garnered lots of negative attention from concerned Evangelicals last summer, yet, totally un-phased and generally thankful for the publicity, Brian Houston will introduce “Naked Santa” this Sunday during their Christmas Extravaganza service. What’s next? “We plan on just being naked 100% of the time,” asserted Brian Houston, founder of Hillsong United and Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia. “People love our music. People love our Naked Cowboy and Naked Santa. Now we have nowhere else to go but Naked Hillsong. We plan on constantly being nude for the sake of the Cross.”
JD Hall, owner of the Pulpit and Pen blog and a hefty PHD in Christian Discernment, isn’t happy, “JEZEBEL JEZEBEL JEZEBEL JEZEBEL JEZEBEL,” he wrote in his latest essay on the subject.
“We need to get people in our doors and buying our merchandise so they can hear a sub-par Gospel message and eventually get saved through surface-level relationships and a coffee bar in the sanctuary. Naked Hillsong is the future of Hillsong.”
