Not somewhere that would attract me in the slightest - sorry!

Even when I was a churchgoer, I found guitars and arm-waving to be complete turn-offs!

Very interesting. Those who are afraid of guitars and people raising their hands to worship God have a serious soul problem.

Who said anything about being afraid? I just prefer old-fashioned hymns and think that arm-waving is pretentious.
