 Controversy Erupts Over Explosion of Church, College Groups Gyrating to ‘The Harlem Shake’

A new dance craze that has become a fad around the world has now exploded among evangelical churches and Christian colleges nationwide, creating much controversy over whether Christians should be imitating the popular video.
