Regina Kennedy (no relation) prides herself on being a pretty good Christian, so when the pastor at her Pentecostal church in Alberta called it a sin to download gospel songs without paying for them, her heart began to race.
The out-of-work truckdriver went home and stared down at her download collection, which included artists such as Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin, Frontline Assembly and Harris Kane as well as the complete run of TalonAudioBooks, comprising 6 first novels, 13 short story collections by grad students and 2 plays. "The songs are so beautiful, and even some of those stories are all right, but I just couldn't afford to buy them all," the 43-year-old said. "I just didn't know what to do, and I needed all this stuff for school."
In the end, she deleted every song, and erased all the stories too. She's still not sure, though, that they were ever real. "I don't know what to think anymore, really."
