I guess these days most people into Slayer are aware that Tom Araya is a Christian. If you're not, this will be a weird news flash.
If nothing else, it seems to be a great example of cognitive dissonance, being that Slayer's lyrics (not penned by Tom) are often very anti-religion, and often specifically anti-Christianity—quite hatefully so.
So in your opinion is Tom Araya a huge hypocrite, sellout, rightfully taking it all very casually, or something else?
I guess I'd say he's just an example of a successful instance of cognitive dissonance.
