American Men Don't Sing

Curious Christian Blog, at

Over at Everyday Theology, Dr. Marc Cortez discusses a recent talk by Alistair Begg at Western Seminary:

And just before he got into his sermon, he went on a fascinating little digression about the fact that American men don’t sing. It’s not just that we can’t sing, but that we don’t. And, although his primary focus is on worship, he thinks it’s a more widespread cultural phenomenon. In other cultures, especially in the UK, singing is a normal part of life. Men sing at football matches and in the pubs. So when they enter the church, singing is normal. But in America, it’s different. So Begg makes a fascinating point at the end of the clip when he says that he thinks you can really tell that American male has really been converted when he begins to sing.
