A guy I work with was going on about the illuminati, Jay z, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga the other day. He said something at one point about Katy but I was too busy trying not to laugh at that point. I guess there are some you tube videos out there his wife found. The truth is out there or something like that

That was...  actually kind of stupid.

Her in the ball at the start was off-putting.  The strobes were ridiculous.  The rapping was awful.  And the song was really uninspired.

Oh, and where was the twerking?  I didn't see any.

Her dress was cool, though.  And the set was kind of nice.

And they had a TARDIS big enough to move everything back to the American South and write it under different names years before the Beatles were ever formed.

Well now a couple hours past, and I was sitting in my house
The day was winding down and coming to an end
And so I turned on the TV, and flipped it over to the news
And what I saw I almost couldn't comprehend
I saw a preacher man in cuffs, he'd taken money from the church
He'd stuffed his bank account with righteous dollar bills
But even still I can't say much because I know we're all the same
Oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills
 
2014-02-07 10:56:29 AM

varmitydog: Yeah, "all you need is love" sounds real satanic.


A lot of Christians got upset over the "more popular than Jesus" comment, but that was a long time ago.  i think there was also a fair bit of outrage over "Imagine", and while that was technically a solo effort the kind of people who would get outraged aren't going to care about that distinction.

So anyway, yes, among the sort of Christians who get upset over incidents like that, and who still harbor resentment decades afterward, the Beatles are "Satanic" ---- in the sense that anything critical of Christianity is "Satanic."

I mean, sweet blabbering Bertha, have you never heard the god-awful noise they made?

I Wanna Hold Your Hand played backwards plainly states "Satan commands you to kill for pleasure."


CSB:  Years ago when Mama macaroni!! was working in the public school system, one of the teachers loaned her a book which turned out to be chock full of the most bizarre conspiracy theories, which he evidently believed every word of.  One of these basically stated that the Beatles were a lie - their whole backstory was fiction and they were in fact formed by the Illuminati/Bilderbergers/choose-your-fave-rave.  The goal was, through their discordant, mindless "music" which No One In Their Right Mind Could Possibly Enjoy, they would corrupt the world's youth on a global scale via mind control and usher in a worldwide atheistic dictatorship or some such drivel.  (Bonus: the teacher in question was a Rasta.)

Farking Canuck: FTFA: "Katy Perry and all her friends, apostates from faith, they move gradually out of the Christian faith and into a secular, demonic approach to things and they move out of the Christian - this is how you get from a 55 percent church attendance ratio for the Silent Generation to 18 percent for the Millennial Generation down to 4 percent in the year 2025," Swanson said.

Yay! Best news I've heard all week.


He is actually addressing an issue that the religious people are interested in - why do they lose so many of their congregations when they hit 20?

His explanation is that it's due to external factors. "It's not our fault, it's bc of Satan and his minions"

My explanation is that it's due to internal factors. You try to indoctrinate yr kids about things like world being only 6000 years old etc, but when they get outside the bubble they realize you've been feeding them BS. Then they start to question the other stuff you've taught them, and they wind up dumping all their beliefs.

I wish Bill Nye had attempted something like that in the debate. Instead of talking past each other, Nye could have engaged Ham directly - "What you are teaching is actually harming your church, bc most people eventually figure out that you've been lying to/misleading them with your fake arguments, and then they leave your church"

They are never getting that genie back in the bottle.

The fact is that all religions spew out large amounts of silly, ridiculous, demonstrably false claims. In the age of the internet these things just don't fly.

Sure, the young earth and Noah's ark crap is the easiest to poke holes in but none of the rest holds up to any kind of rigor either. So then you have people saying "just look to it for moral guidance ... don't take it literally". Well that worked when nobody actually read the book. With the internet all of the horrific "morals" have been picked out and are on display: incest, murder of family members, stoning of teenagers, slavery. Who in their right minds can look at this book and call it moral?

Next look at the availability of "current events" news. Now for every good act by a religious organization there is a complementing child rape. Every time the pope says "love each other" a priest is on the news saying "hate the gays". All the dirty laundry of all the religions is on display ... why would anyone knowingly give money to a group that is going to use it to protect pedophiles from prosecution, etc.?

Availability of information will be the undoing of the church ... plain and simple.

ciberido: varmitydog: Yeah, "all you need is love" sounds real satanic.

A lot of Christians got upset over the "more popular than Jesus" comment, but that was a long time ago.  i think there was also a fair bit of outrage over "Imagine", and while that was technically a solo effort the kind of people who would get outraged aren't going to care about that distinction.

So anyway, yes, among the sort of Christians who get upset over incidents like that, and who still harbor resentment decades afterward, the Beatles are "Satanic" ---- in the sense that anything critical of Christianity is "Satanic."


I've always thought that they did that for the publicity, in particular, to be view as a little more rebellious.  At that time, the Beatles were the band that your parents approved of, as opposed to say the Stones.  Thus, they needed a little anti-mainstream gravitas, to be representative of the "Youth Rebellion", that was going on.  They were always very calculating (up to creating Apple records), and I was amused by the fact, that the religious groups were buying their records, so that they could burn them.  "That'll show them!  Buy some more of their records, Jethro, and will burn those, too!"
