Satan made me do it

I wrote a short post year ago about the Rolling Stones . Asking if they worship Satan or something. I remember when I was an early teen there used to be “tent revivals” and ministries run through town and talk about the evil of rock  music. Continue reading “Rolling Stones – Satanists?”

Devil Possession The Emily Rose Exorcism

You believe in devil possession ?? I checked out the Exorcism of Emily Rose…That was some spooky Halloween stuff. You dig? The fact that the movie is based on a true story makes it even more eerie . It has to be one of the spookiest movies I have ever seen.

Deep Questions

Was that chick really possessed by some kind of evil force (devils) or was she  mentally ill? Did that priest actually prevent her from getting the medical help that she needed? The meds she was taking obviously were not working.

I’d love to talk about Psyche med’s. But I don’t want to get sidetracked. Ya know? 
Remember the Exorcist?

That crazy movie with Linda Blair back in the day… I saw it with my parents at the drive in.. Fortunately I fell asleep. But that was one scary movie too. It’s said that people were “fainting” and vomiting in theaters from a total freak out! Wow!

Emily is more real.

She brings up lots of spiritual questions for the viewer. For somebody to watch that and not consider something being “out there” is well…unbelievable. (Pardon the irony) There seems to be unseen powers in this universe that can’t be explained.

Check it this Halloween

Yep. Halloween is fun! Watch the movie,  then discuss God, devil possession and all that wacky stuff  . Atheist’s welcome… Like…Totally 🙂

The Beatles – More Popular Than Jesus?

John Lennon told this reporter during an interview that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus.  Well… people tripped.  Firestorm on bad boy John.

So, what about it?

“Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue with that; I’m right and I will be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first – rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.”

Oh my… What are we gonna do about this? We got a problem folks.

Looks like this deal brought a lot of attention to Jesus actually. I was wondering if they are more popular than Jesus right now? Those cat’s are still very popular.  Their fan’s (followers?) are pehaps more closely followed than Jesus’s.

One day a emergent Christian leader posted “The Beatles had it right” on his facebook page wall.  What was he talking about?  I dunno.  My guess is he was referring to their message of love and peace.

Hey… I dig the Beatles, and I dig Jesus. Can’t we all just get along?

Lennon said he didn’t know which would go first. Rock and roll or Christianity.  But, they are both here to stay. Ya know?

KISS – Knights in Satan’s Service?

Remember that groovy band Kiss… “Knights in Satan Service” Haha…I was a big fan when I was a kid. They were the first “shock rock” band I remember…They did songs about the good things in life… Sex!

They painted their faces and wore these cool costumes… They jumped around on stage and had fire and platforms and shiny drums. The bass player spit up blood and blew fire… It has been said they were the “hardest working band of all time”.

There band consisted of:

Cat
Star child
Vampire
Space Man

So where they the Kings in Satan Service? Or was this just a clever marketing publicity stunt?  Perhaps the movement to label all rock music as “the devils” music came up with this and when Kiss heard it they simply didn’t deny it thinking it would sell a few more records.

Oh sure their songs about rock and roll lifestyle sex and God’s of Thunder was a bit over the top in the 70’s… Not even close to what these guys are singing about now…  Come on now… Ever heard of the band Slayer?

Hey..Kiss is still rocking around out there.. Can you dig it?

Obama Smoking Religious Status

Obama is still smoking … I commented about this during the election. That they would need a white house smoke hole.

I know this because I heard on the news he had went to the doctor for his physical and they recommened that he “continue to try and quit”

Now how is he supposed to do that given the stress of his job? I just know I’d be a smoking fool if I had that job… You dig?

Well my 1st  question today is what brand does he smoke? Is he like me and smoke the homegrown ghetto brand from the Indian smoke shop. It’s just as good as a camel once you get 1/2 way through the first carton.

Hey, folks consider him the messiah or something right? How can he do that if he is smoking? (And paying the subsequent “sin tax”)

Oh wait, many consider him to be the anti christ.

Well, which one is it man? Let the hipster know….
