ANAHEIM — The latest Vineyard Music worship CD, "Intimacy, vol. 2," has
raced to the top of the Christian sales charts, but Wal-Mart is refusing to
stock the album without slapping on a parental warning sticker. The
ground-breaking — some say risqué — album includes edgy worship songs such as
"My Lover, My God," "Touch Me All Over," "Naked Before You," "I'll Do Anything
You Want," "Deeper" and "You Make Me Hot with Desire."
"We've had concerns about previous Vineyard CD's, but this time they
went overboard in their suggestive imagery depicting the church's love affair
with Christ," said a Wal-Mart spokesman. "It would be irresponsible to sell this
to 13-year-old kids."
