The discussion last week that many of this season's 'American Idol' contestants are Christians who either sing in the church choir or are praise and worship leaders has spurred another discussion: Does that really matter?

Apparently, those who watch the show have pretty strong feelings about the subject.

"What does their faith have to do with singing?" says Selena1 who commented on a MTV.com story about the subject on MTV.com. "Christians sing in their churches all the time in America. ... If someone does it every week, sometimes a couple of nights, then imagine the practice they get compared to others who don't. ... So of course you get a lot of singers with Christian backgrounds who are not pros but have no fear to get up and sing in front of groups."

'Idol' viewers can tune into the show at 8 tonight on Fox to see who will be eliminated. Read more about the religion debate on MTV.com.
