As it was in the days of Noah, that is how it will be today, at least in Jamaica. Well, that is what many Jamaican Christians are saying. Unlike in the days of Noah when the flooding was caused be rain, however, today the flooding is being caused by human blood running through Jamaica’s streets like a toxic spill.
No one has been seen building an Ark like Noah did but many Christians in Jamaica believe that the blood flooding we have seen, can be directly blamed on Dancehall Music. The music the Christians says have created a culture that have the youths thinking that it is good to be bad.
Recently some very popular dancehall producers and artistes have taken to social media to blame the bible and Christianity for the state that Jamaica finds itself in.
The Christians are not taking these criticisms lightly and are quick to point out that the ills of the island is more reflected in the Dancehall culture has is evident by Vybz Kartel and Nijaman serving life sentences for murder while Munga Honorebel is awaiting a court date to answer to murder charges.
Jamaican Christians are pointing out that not only is dancehall’s favorite and most loved artiste a convicted murderer but almost half of Dancehall music is about murder and violence.
Jamaican Christians are warning the Dancehall fraternity to clean up their acts and stop bringing down destruction on Jamaica. Some Christians are even considering confronting Dancehall patrons, artistes, producers and promoters if they continue to spew violence and murder in their lyrics.
