:)) Though I didn't see it, I doubt that "Les Dix Commandements" would be seen as religious work :)) , though it's probably not as irreverant as "Jesus Christ Superstar" :) .

Me neither :)) .

Because of the singer I guess :)) . We're all the same... Besides, they're quite a good rap group in my opinion, rather original. Still, you should listen to Sardou. What a voice! He sang the French version of the "Do you hear the people sing?" of Les Misérables: "A la volonté du peuple" BTW. Christophe.
