A Texas Pastor is Very Upset About “Devil-Worshipping” Band Ghost

0

Living inside the liberal, elite, Jewish, media-controlling, socialist-agenda-pushing bubble here in New York that I do, I often forget that religion is a thing people take seriously. Then I see headlines like this one that shake me back into reality. There are folks right here in America (millions of them!) that believe Satan is real and that rock music is the anti-Christ embodied!

To wit: Ghost’s show in Midland, TX tomorrow, November 19th, has come under fire from a local pastor concerned about the band’s “devil-worshipping” nature.

Pastor Larry Long (not to be confused with Long-Ball Larry) took part in the The Morning Show With Craig Anderson on the radio station KWEL AM 1070 FM 107.1, and expressed his disbelief that the Midland venue Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center had agreed to book Ghost, who he genuinely believes are satanic:

“I was in a prayer group yesterday afternoon, so I didn’t learn about it until yesterday morning; I saw a Facebook post from a friend of mine. But it was during the time that we were spending in prayer, a group of us, that it [was] just really impressed upon me that we need to speak out against this. I don’t know that we can stop the band from coming — I don’t know how that works — but this is very concerning to me. And I’m not so much concerned about the band as I am about the fact that Wagner Noël didn’t have better sense than to sign this band. What are those people thinking? Are they a part of our community? Do they care what the majority of our community might think about something like that. It’s quite remarkable to me that they would even sign a band like that.

“Sure, I’m concerned about the content of the band,” he said. “We have a freedom of religion in America, which means a freedom of irreligion and anti-Christian faith, if that’s what people want to do. And so, from that sense, yes, the band bothers me. But I’m not in favor of outlawing the band per se; what I’m in favor is finding out from Wagner Noël what in the world they’re thinking… I don’t know what Wagner Noël can do once they sign that contract, but for Heaven’s sakes, they need better sense than this. And I think the community should be alarmed about it. This is not healthy for our community. Because we Christians believe the devil is real, so when you have a devil-worshipping band… And I’m sure the band believes the devil’s real; I doubt that they’re just doing this as a part of their shtick for music and music they produce and so on. And if you were to read some of the lyrics of their songs, they’re really quite disturbing.”

This next part is extremely amusing, if only for the way Long refers to Ghost’s Nameless Ghouls:

“The main band leader goes by the name of Tobias; whether or not that’s his real name, who knows? And then the rest of ’em go by ‘ghoulish horde’ or something like that. Of course, you see this kind of stuff and you say, ‘Well, how much of this…? Do they understand?’ I think that they understand all of it. I think that they are doing this intentionally, and I think they really do worship the devil, because I believe… as a Christian, as a biblical Christian, I believe the devil’s real. So I imagine maybe some people listening right now would say, ‘Oh, you guys are getting overblown with this,’ and those kinds of things. Well, you would only think that if you didn’t think the devil was real.”

In case you’re wondering, here’s how satantic bandmaster Tobias selects the members of his ghoulish horde.
