I find it utterly pointless.
Slightly off-topic, but surely a Christian rockstar is a contradiction in terms?
Rock is supposed to be about rebelling against the establishment, Christianity IS the fucking establishment.
If they released death metal covers of all those old Bible hymns and packed them with a guitar controller for me to thrash to, then I'd buy that.
So long as there's plenty of swearing and blasphemy of course.

the Guitar wrong they need a wi-fi pipe organ, it will sound cool as you do the mad solo bit in the "the lord is our sheepet."

Christians are for ever trying to get into doom, SimCity, dungeons and dragons, street fighter 2, deer hunter the list goes on but you never see any of this games out side of a christian only book shops.

Hope fully this will push good kids into playing Guitar hero, and finding the hidden mine game where you play the lords pryer backwards that would be funny.

Christian rock has been around for ages. Nothing new there. It is huge in the US, obviously. Basically they have their own market, so they use it. Makes perfect business sense.

Oh, and rock stopped being against the establishment ages ago too. The Rolling Stones became the establishment years back, and now we have McFly. :el:

Basically you can only be against the establishment if you are losing out. The moment you do well, you're in, and very few turn back from that.

They do a christian rock version, it will sell well, to the Ned Flanders types. That's all the reason anyone needs to do anything anymore. Will it sell? Yes. Do it. :wnw:
