Engaging in debate through rap in the popular media.

So apparently the Insane Clown Posse is a hardcore Christian rap group with enough of a following to get noticed when they create something like this:

It basically claims that everything from heredity to fog is a miracle. I can't define a miracle myself and I suppose you can call whatever you want a miracle. I'm pretty sure that these guys are anti science, though(mostly because they say so in the video). And that has a few people rebutting the song and using the same art form to do it.

The Escapist, a site devoted mostly to nerd humor and gaming news, presented a remarkably cogent rebuttal/parody.

And a slightly higher profile spot on SNL which is straight up satire.

So here we have a raging debate through the medium of song. Artistic expression as argument.
