Singer Tim Lambesis Said He Became Atheist But Kept Claiming to Be Christian to Keep Selling Music to Faithful (update)
Yet another reason single ladies need to stop thinking in terms of ‘I can only marry another Christian because of “be not yoked.”‘
You can start out marrying a guy who claims to be a Christian and by, who all appearances is an actual Christian, but then he converts to atheism and hires a hit man to murder you.

Tim Lambesis, lead singer and founder of Christian metalcore band As I Lay Dying, recently confessed that he and other members of his band had become atheists but kept claiming to be Christians so they could keep making money selling records to Christians.
… He [Lambesis] explained that he was afraid of revealing his true thoughts about God because he was afraid it would affect the record sales of his band; so he simply chose to just say, “I’m not a Satanist” as a cover.
“As far as the [YouTube] video I did explaining Pyrithion’s lyrics … I was trying to put out a fire. I was afraid it would affect As I Lay Dying sales, which would affect my overall income. …
…”Truthfully, I was an atheist. …” he said.
Lambesis noted that the majority of “Christian bands” he encountered while he was on tour had taken similar positions – where they were simply working to collect a check.
“We toured with more ‘Christian bands’ who actually aren’t Christians than bands that are. In 12 years of touring with As I Lay Dying, I would say maybe one in 10 Christian bands we toured with were actually Christian bands,” he said.
