Why should anybody take ApologetiX seriously?

Here's what ApologetiX lyricist J. Jackson had to say about the subject in an interview with HM Magazine in 2004:

"Well, I guess we can't expect our critics to take our "music" seriously when they think we didn't even take the original music seriously — I mean, a lot
of critics think we're making fun of the original music.

You know, just because you don't take something seriously doesn't mean it isn't going to have an effect on you once you're exposed to it. Look at all the people who got exposed to L.S.D. in the 1960's who didn't take that stuff seriously and still got affected ... and still have flashbacks years later.

My experience shows that whether you take a parody seriously or not, the words still affect you. And parodies will give you flashbacks, too ... those parody words keep coming back to you when you hear the original song. And when those words are based on the living Word of God they can be life-changing. They don't come back to Him void."
