I found a Facebook page for his ministry and started following.  Meaning I can now share the load of crazy this guy/group puts out.  

He seems to see a LOT of 'evil,' 'satanism' and 'demons' in Hollywood and the music industry.  And from listening to his podcast for a few years before I hopped off the Evangelical/Fundie Lite bandwagon does not seem to get or understand creative types.  

I personally advise taking a rescue ferret with you should you drop into the rabbit hole that his this website.  And highly recommend looking for videos.  (see the theater button) - specifically, They Sold Their Souls For Rock & Roll.

The Truth About Satanic Cults

by Joe Schimmel | Cults & Occult | 1 comment

One of the delusions that we will clear up at the outset of this exposé is the lie that leading Satanic cults do not believe in (or truly worship) the devil. First of all, it should be understood that Anton LaVey (pictured above), the founder of the Church of Satan, viewed Satan as a true entity that he actually worshipped before his death. Anton LaVey deceived a lot of people who joined the Church of Satan by claiming that Satan only represented the repressed forces of nature but was not a real entity. In my interviews with former Charles Manson family member Susan Atkins (who is still in prison after being convicted of eight murders), she blew the lid off of Anton’s lie. As a former associate of Anton LaVey’s, who danced for him and spent personal time with him before joining the Manson family, Atkins was privy to conversations with LaVey before he became popular. Atkins told me repeatedly that while LaVey promotes a watered down, palatable form of Satanism to the ignorant masses which he is deceiving, he acknowledged the exact opposite to her and to his inner core of Satanist’s in the church of Satan. Susan Atkins shared with me that LaVey had told her emphatically while she was in his home that they truly worshipped Satan as a real entity and as the one who began the initial rebellion against God. Atkins also stated:

Susan Atkins

“Anton told me that as a Satanist he does believe in the God of the bible but he refused to worship Him and made a conscious decision to worship Satan instead.” (My personal interview with Susan Atkins)

We have pictures of Atkins with LaVey in his ritual chamber when she associated with the Church of Satan. LaVey was aware that few people were ignorant enough to truly turn their lives over to Satan, knowing that they would not only be allowing themselves to be deceived by their worst enemy, but that they would spend eternity in the fiery torments of hell. LaVey therefore presented a seeker sensitive, user-friendly form of Satanism in the hopes that it might appeal to the masses he was seeking to deceive. LaVey sought to put a spin on Satanism as a kinder and gentler form of Devil worship, claiming that Satan merely represents a “force in nature” and that rather than Satanist’s sacrificing animals and little children they are animal activists who love children. All of this was done to garner unwitting recruits. For starters, one should never trust a Satanist. Satanist’s view lying to be among their highest virtues, as do true Christians truth. LaVey and other Satanists serve the one who Jesus repudiated as “The father of lies” (John 8:44). It would be just like the father of lies to cloak his religion in non-reality. Satan has long been about deception and has successfully deceived many recruits into believing that they are simply worshipping a symbol rather than a reality. Satan relishes in such ignorance. Atkins’ testimony that LaVey was deliberately duping Satanist’s in the outer circle is corroborated by evidence from LaVey’s own admissions. LaVey let his guard down when responding to other Satanists that considered him “not extreme enough”. LaVey, while in a defensive mode, admitted that the image that he presented publicly was deceptive, declaring:

Anton LaVey

“If they’re at all intelligent [other true Satanist’s] …they’ll realize that there’s only so much I can say publicly…I will not advance things in print which make my position untenable…How long would the Church of Satan have lasted if I hadn’t appeased and outraged in just the right combination? It required a certain amount of discretion and diplomacy to balance the outrage.” (Anton LaVey, Lucifer Rising: A Book of Sin, Devil Worship and Rock ‘n’ Roll by Gavin Baddeley (Plexus Publishing, 1999), p. 133)

Purposeful deception is needed among leading Satanists to enslave those who they recruit as unscrupulous and unsuspecting pawns who feel more comfortable believing Satan is a symbol or force. Few Satanists realize the evil intentions among the inner core of Satanists and how they view lower initiates as mere puppets to be used and later discarded. Those in the higher echelon of the movement are often aware of the nature of Satan and the demonic realm that they serve. Notwithstanding, they are often bound and blinded on another level because they have become addicted to the power that Satan deceptively promises. Kenneth Anger, who was a cofounder of the Church of Satan with Anton LaVey, used a similar spin on Satanism, as did LaVey. Kenneth Anger stated in the 1960’s, in his film, Lucifer Rising, “Lucifer is the light god, not the devil,” (From the jacket of the film Lucifer Rising). This delusion that Lucifer is really the God of light and not Satan should not surprise us as God’s word warns that Satan himself “masquerades” as an “angel of light” to draw the unsuspecting into his evil web and that his agents do the same:

“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

Kenneth Anger

Years later, after Kenneth Anger had deceived multitudes of people into thinking they were worshipping the supposed “light god,” an entity that was not really Satan, Anger “confessed” that Lucifer whom he worships had always been the historical “Satan” (Lucifer Rising, p. 47). It was too late though for many Satanists who had been deceived and long before died in their sin and are in hell right now. It is too late for the multitudes that are now cursing Satan, Anton LaVey and Kenneth Anger from the place of indescribable and horrific eternal torment. It is not too late though for the reader who may have been deceived by the same lie and yet still has a small window of time to turn from Satan to Christ and be saved.

It appears that Marilyn Manson is merely playing the same mind game with his fans as did LaVey and Anger. Besides following LaVey who deceived his followers, Manson admitted, “I’ve taken a lot of my inspiration from Kenneth Anger.” Sadly, while the leaders among Satanists realize that Satan is for real, many who swell the ranks of their churches have been duped into believing that they are in some nature religion. They are taught that either a real Satan does not exist or that hell will not be all that hot. This, of course, is sheer non-sense! Anton LaVey himself was severely deceived as he stated in his Satanic Bible that he would reign with Satan in hell. LaVey now realizes he was the most deceived of all. The Scriptures are clear that Hell was created as a place of torment for Satan and his angels (Matt 25:40-43). Moreover, God’s Word declares that Satan will be stripped of his power and rendered “weak” and “covered with worms.”Satan will be rendered one of the weakest and most pathetic beings is the universe, an object of ridicule and scorn by those who were deceived by him. Those who have been deceived by him will marvel that this once powerful fallen angel has been rendered powerless and will mock him as a “carcass trodden under foot” in their torment (Isaiah 14:9-19). So even leaders in the church of Satan who are deceiving their initiates are themselves deceived, believing that they will have some place of power in Hell. As the apostle Paul prophesied:

“Evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13)

Richard Ramirez

Richard Ramirez, known as the night Stalker, was deceived by Anton LaVey’s assertion in the satanic bible that Satanists could reign in hell. Ramirez believed that his human sacrifices to Satan would earn him a place of rulership in hell next to Jack the Ripper and other serial killers. Further evidence of what leading Satanists really believe is proven in admissions by Lieutenant Colonel Michael Aquino of the United States Army. Aquino was a leader in Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan and said to be LaVey’s “second-in-command” before he broke off to begin his own satanic order called The Temple of Set. Aquino ended up taking several of LaVey’s followers with him. The Temple of Set would eventually attract the likes of Anton LaVey’s daughter Zeena LaVey. So rabid a Satanist is Aquino that he had the number 666 tatooed on his scalp. The Temple of Set proclaims that Set, another name for Satan, is a real entity and is a name for, “The oldest known form of the Prince of Darkness.” Aquino seems to have been under the conviction that society had become so jaded that many of those in the outer circle of Satanism were ready to worship Satan as a real entity. Aquino believed it was time for Satan to come out of the closet in all of his naked deformity. Aquino even took the more up front view of Satanism to the television airwaves where he virtually admitted that Satan is a real entity and that many are in the dark as to whom they are really worshipping, including millions of New Agers. On Oprah Winfrey, Aquino acknowledged that they are following the infernal being that orchestrated the initial rebellion against God, the Creator of the universe. Aquino admitted to Winfrey and the television audience made up of millions that they are following Satan who initiated the original rebellion against God:

“We believe that this quality [to oppose God’s natural order] in the human soul that makes it different from all other life forms…was deliberately inculcated in humanity in its distant evolutionary past by an active agency that is acting in defiance of the universal norm [God’s moral law]. And that agency has been caricatured…as Lucifer, as Satan, and in the greatest antiquity by the ancient Egyptians as Set.” (Ibid.)

Michael Aquino

Aquino went on to describe how they believe that they, as Satanists, are now becoming gods. This was at the heart of Satan’s initial rebellion and now Aquino was parroting the essence of Satanism, which is a desire to usurp the true and living God’s authority and follow Satan into God-realization. “We are not servants of some God,” declared Aquino, “we are our own gods!” Oprah Winfrey appeared to be shocked to find out that this was exactly what she believed as a New Ager, failing to realize that the New Age movement has it roots in Crowleyan Satanism even as Aquino’s Satanism.

We have already proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Aleister Crowley was not only a confessed Satanist, but that he was the father of the Hippie Movement from which popular New Age teachings first became entrenched in Western civilization. (See our expose on Aleister Crowley.)

Almost gasping for air, Winfrey declared in response to Aquino’s assertion:

“Well, the way you explain this is the way a lot of people who are into metaphysics now and the New Age movement and New Age thinking, they say the very same thing. Are you saying that it’s the same?”

Aquino, without skipping a beat, said “Yes” to Winfrey’s question, implying that New Agers and Satanist are on the same wave length in their rebellion against God and in their quest to achieve god-hood as they follow in Satan’s footsteps. He only clarified that most New Agers are not aware that they have joined a satanic rebellion against God and that Satanists know what’s going on. Aquino stated:

“Yes, except that I would say we [Satanists] have a more precise grasp…We would say that we understand what’s actually happening a little better than many New Agers.”

Much to Aquino’s chagrin, the Temple of Set would find out that even as debauched as the world has become most people are still smart enough not to knowingly serve Satan and end up spending eternity in hell. After bringing Satan out of the closet, The Temple of Set failed to enlist the large amount of recruits they apparently hoped for. In their failure to acquire more recruits they changed their method of evangelism and returned to a formula more in keeping with that of the Church of Satan. Today the Temple of Set, like the Church of Satan, espouses a more palatable, seeker-sensitive form of Satanism so as not to scare off potential recruits. The result is that Satan is once again cloaked in ambiguity and the song remains the same as inner circle initiates are deceiving outer circle initiates.

Winfrey was surprised that Aquino, as a confessed Satanist, would try to deny the hard facts of the evil behind Satanism when Aquino stated that they as Satanists have “nothing to do with evil,” she said:

“It’s just difficult for me to understand that the devil is a good thing…that Satan isn’t evil, which is the opposite of what everybody in this world has been taught…”

Winfrey went on to exclaim:

“In every state of the nation authorities are investigating some form of what they call satanic activity…Children are telling the same stories about infants being murdered before their eyes in strange devil rituals. The list of bizarre stories goes on and on.”

Not surprisingly Aquino tried unsuccessfully at this point to put another typical spin on Satanism by claiming that they are not into such things. Even as leading Satanists like to hide the fact that they are truly worshipping Satan, so it is that they seek to deny that Satanists sacrifice humans, including children. The truth of the matter is that Aleister Crowley, whom Aquino acknowledges, had an incredible influence on Aquino and the Temple of Set, and not only taught his followers to engage in child sacrifice, but admitted to sacrificing scores of children himself. We have fully documented this fact in our exposé on Crowley. After Aquino made the false claim that Satanists don’t really sacrifice children, a law enforcement officer spoke up and stated:

Anton LaVey

“To say that there are no bodies and that these [Satanists] are not committing crimes is the farthest from the truth…in every case that I’ve investigated, now extending over 200, I have found this particular book[The Satanic Bible].”

At this point the investigator held up a satanic bible. In the Satanic Bible LaVey, in seeking “not advance things in print which make my position untenable” lest he find himself behind bars, stated that his followers were to commit human sacrifices by proxy:

“We perform human sacrifices, by proxy you might say—the destruction of human beings who would, let’s say, create an antagonistic situation toward us—in the form of curse and hexes, not in actual blood rituals because certainly the destruction of a human being physically is illegal.”

Note that the only reason LaVey concedes that he is not publicly advocating actual physical human sacrifice is because it is against the law, implying that if they could get away with it they would do it. In fact, LaVey takes credit for the death of Jayne Mansfield, her boyfriend and Lawyer Sam Brody, stating that it was a result of a ritual curse on Brody, and Mansfield happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. LaVey also believes that he was responsible for the Manson family murders. Manson was heavily influenced by the satanic cult known as the Process. The Process also acknowledged that Satan is a real entity. Their particular twisted spin, in an effort to get unwitting recruits, was not to pretend Satan was not a true entity, but to claim that Satan was actually a Jesus-loving devil. The Process claimed that Jesus and Satan had reconciled and that all would work out well in the end for everyone, including Satanists, because Jesus had supposedly forgiven the devil. Ridiculous as this spin was it proved successful in garnering more than a few recruits. The bodies have piled up and the idea that Satanism is not behind the deaths of countless multitudes of innocent people is a lie only believed by the incredibly naive. Manson, who was a confessed Satanist, was responsible for up to 35 murders if the admissions of some of his former followers are to be believed. Charles Manson, whom Marilyn Manson cites as one of his preeminent inspirations and a brilliant philosophers, has stated, “Jesus Christ is for real and so is that other guy [i.e. Satan].” Charles Manson knows that Satan whom he serves is a real entity and has been more candid than has his follower Marilyn Manson.

Son of Sam who was part of a Process coven made up of 22 Satanists and connected to several other satanic covens also murdered several people at the direction of the coven. We show his videotaped admissions in our video They Sold Their Souls for Rock n Roll (full length version). Richard Ramirez, who followed the Satanic Bible, met with Anton LaVey before his satanic killing spree killing 20 people. Ramirez even went so far as to torture his victims and made some “swear to Satan.” Between Manson, Son of Sam and Richard Ramirez alone, we have dozens of murders in the name of Satan. We could easily add to this list – case after case that could easily fill a book – but we have more than sufficiently made our case for those who will honestly look at the evidence! We have now seen conclusive evidence that the most influential and notorious satanic leaders have had a campaign to dupe their followers into becoming unwitting followers of Satan himself. We have seen not only their admissions, but the deceptive web they have spun to prey on outer circle initiates.

Dear reader, if you have been deceived by any of the aforementioned Satanists, we plead with you to recognize the magnitude of the deception at hand. We plead with you to recognize that which is obvious to all of us who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Jesus Christ promised that he would not cast away any that would come to Him (John 6:37). Turn to him now before it is too late. Your life is very short and Satan is playing for keeps and your soul is his prey. Wake up and turn from these demonic parasites that prey upon your souls and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ who loves you and died for your sins so you would not have to go to hell. It is not by accident that you are reading this article. God is seeking to use this article to open your eyes to a deception that has deceived you for too long. Do not bet your soul on Satan, he is the ultimate loser! Don’t gamble, you will surely lose! The odds are too great, the stakes are too high and eternity is far too long. Cry out to God right now and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. If you do He will miraculously deliver you from demonic powers. He will deliver you from Hell and give you a new destiny. He will deliver you from the penalty of death and give you new Life. Hope to see you in heaven!

No worries.  Those who have not read the Satanic Bible or anything about Lavey & company shouldn't write articles about Satanism.  I suppose that no self-respecting fundie would ever, ever take it upon themselves to learn what Satanism really stands for.

Oh, now I will have to add The Satanic Bible to my reading list. I have heard it's a fairly short read. I know there are modern day Satanists and Luciferians who are trying to promote "ethical, humanitarian" Satanism. From what little I have heard of modern Satanism it's much more about hedonism, throwing off societal restraints, and defying church authority than Satan himself. Satan/Lucifer is far more an ideal than he is a literal entity to many Satanists.

Today's rant (likely precipitated by Lauren Daigle not being anti-gay and perhaps no longer identifying as a Christian artist) is about how important the Chrisitan Artist label is.  And of course, he has a video at the bottom of the link below.

Christian Artist-Why Labels Matter

by Chad Davidson | Articles, Commentaries & Teachings, Music | 0 comments

Why it matters that your favorite Christian artist says they don’t want to be called a Christian artist.

“I am a Christian. I am a rapper. But Christian is my faith not my genre.” -Lecrae

“I feel like those labels get put on you by other people, I was reading articles, I read them here in there, and one of them said Christian artist and the other ones said just artist. But I think part of me is just an artist because it encompasses everything. That’s kind of how I see myself.” -Lauren Daigle

“None of these songs has been born again, and to that end there is no such thing as Christian music.” -John Foreman (Switchfoot)

There seems to be a growing trend among Christian artists who feel the need to clarify to people that they aren’t really “Christian artists”. Some have even tried to point out that a Christian who is a plumber doesn’t call themselves a “Christian plumber”, so why on earth does a Christian, who is an artist, have to be referred to as a “Christian artist”?

Is this a good argument?

The first thing that we should do is see what God’s word has to say about the word “Christian”. Many would be surprised to learn that the term “Christian” (Χριστιανός, Christianos) is only used 3 times in all of the New Testament. Twice in the book of Acts and once in 1 Peter (it is possibly also referenced in James 2:7). We are told in Acts 11:26 that Christians were first given this name in Antioch. 1 Peter 4:16 tells those who suffer under this name to glorify God in it. And the only other time that we see it used is by King Agrippa during the testimony of Paul, when Agrippa mockingly asked Paul, “In a short time you will persuade me to become a Christian” (Acts 26:28), to which Paul replied:

“I would wish to God, that whether in a short or long time, not only you, but also all who hear me this day, might become such as I am, except for these chains” (Ibid.)

While Paul wished for Agrippa (and all those who heard him before the court) to become a Christian, he hoped that they would not need the chains to go with them. One very interesting thing about this exchange is something that Paul says earlier in his testimony. When Paul was brought before the court, he did not recant or ask not to be called a Christian. He shared his testimony and was declared “out of [his] mind” (Acts 26:24), to which Paul replied:

“I am not out of my mind, most excellent Festus, but I utter words of sober truth. For the king knows about these matters, and I speak to him also with confidence, since I am persuaded that none of these things escape his notice; for this has not been done in a corner” (Acts 26:25-26)

He did not practice these things in a corner, he did them in public. It was his public actions and testimony before Agrippa that opened the door for the gospel; not recanting his declaration, but glorifying God in that name, as the apostle Peter tells us to do in 1 Peter 4:16.

Scripturally speaking, the term Christian is always given by those of the world to believers who follow Christ publicly. In every instance of the word, it is the conduct of Christians which provides those outside of the Christendom to label them as such. It is not a name given to believers by their fellow brethren, but a name given to them because they follow the Christ who saved them. This insult should be one that is worn as a badge of honor to our King. If a professing believer does not want to be labeled by the outside world as “Christian”, one has to sincerely ask themselves why?

In Grammy-award winner Lecrae’s case, it honestly seems that it is because he has become less bold than he was in the beginning of his career. This isn’t an opinion based on a lack of evidence, but based on evidence provided by his own website. As it has been pointed out:

A controversy has been brewing in Christian hip-hop (CHH) for ten years.
At the center of this controversy is rapper Lecrae and the record label he co-founded, Reach Records. The mission of Reach is “changing the way people see the world.” Their artists and fans rally around Romans 1:16, being “unashamed” of the gospel. The Reach brand was built on music that shared the gospel. Listen to Lecrae’s 2006 album After the Music Stops. If you get through the first song without realizing Lecrae is a Christian, the second track, “Jesus Muzik”, makes it clear.
In the hook, Lecrae boasts he’s “riding with my top down listening to this Jesus music.” He’s proclaiming Jesus as king.
When Lecrae released chart-topping Gravity in 2012, fans started to notice a shift in his lyrics and self-description. Big K.R.I.T., a secular rapper with a hit song titled “Country Sh*t,” was featured on the album. While the gospel still permeated Lecrae’s songs, it was less overt.
Then Reach changed their “About Us” page, removing Romans 1:16 and any mention of Jesus Christ. They retained the mission “to change the way people see the world” and the story of Reach’s founding.

Lacrae, who in 2008 rapped:

That’s why it’s Christ in my rhymes

That’s why it’s Christ all the time

See my whole world is built around Him

He’s the life in my lines
—Lecrae, “Don’t Wast Your Life” (2008)

is now replying to those asking in tweets if he is a Christian rapper:

How does one go from labeling their entire movement based on a verse that says “I am not ashamed of the gospel…” to taking the references down from their website and denying that the music they are creating should fall under the genre of “Christian”? While we do not want to judge one’s heart, we have to sincerely ask: why the shift? Has Lacrae turned his back on Christ or is he attempting to be less overt so that he may be able to reach a bigger audience?

Some may believe that if they are too bold, they will lose some of the appeal to the outside world and they may not be able to reach them because of it. But is that really a scriptural view of reaching the culture? In a teaching by Voddie Baucham titled, “Adapting to the Culture … Or Not”, he speaks directly about the Christian musician and some of the ways they attempt to affect the culture:

“The classic example of this is the Christian musician, who wants to go and do music so that through becoming the most popular music star of our day, he or she can then have a platform for the gospel. It’s a classic bait and switch. I will be all that the world desires so that I can become incredibly popular in the world and then once I am enthroned and the world is worshipping me, I will flip the script and tell them about Jesus. And of course then, the world will be saved. Is that what we see in the new testament? Is that what we see from the apostle Paul? I would argue that it is not.” (Source)

Some musicians have complained that labeling their music “Christian” then implies that a song can be “saved” or “born again” and therefor, since a song cannot be, the song cannot be Christian.

As John Foreman of Switchfoot once stated:

“None of these songs has been born again, and to that end there is no such thing as Christian music.”(Source)

But the problem here is that nobody on earth believes such a thing. Nobody believes that a song can be saved. If it is labeled “Christian” it’s because it is glorifying God in a manner that is fitting with Scripture. Just as the outside world labeled early followers of Jesus “Christians”, because their outside behavior reflected that of their Christ, so we also should label music that reflects Jesus as Christian.

Interestingly enough, in the same line of questioning, Mr. Foreman pointed out something that was indeed a fact:

“The view that a pastor is more ‘Christian’ than a girls volleyball coach is flawed and heretical.” (Ibid.)

This is true. One is not more “saved” because they happen to be gifted in the manner of teaching and shepherding, rather than another gift that Christ has bestowed upon them. The apostle Paul explains this quite clearly in 1 Corinthians chapter 12, where he explains that we are all parts of the body of Christ and one party of the body cannot say to the other that they have no use for them. But is there a difference between a “Christian” pastor and a non-Christian “pastor”? Is there a difference between a Christian sermon and one that is taught at a mosque? The identifiable differences are the same as that of a Christian song would have over a non-Christian song. One would be in alliance with Scripture, regardless of the topic within the content. A Christian pastor would also be one that is in accordance with scripture. We can identify that a pastor is a legitimate pastor by looking at his fruit and his teachings to determine whether they line up with scripture.

If you are a Christian artist, your songs will line up with scripture whether or not you prefer the label. Much like the early Christians, it is their actions in word and in deed that provided the outside world with the evidence to call them a Christian. If you do not want fellow believers or the world to be describe you in such a way, you would have to ask yourself…why?

The Bible tells us that the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious (1 John 3:8). It also tells us that believers will have a hope inside of them that requires the world to ask them why it is within them (1 Peter 3:15). We are even told that non-believers will marvel and malign you for not walking in the same dissipations as them (1 Peter 4:3-4).

As a blood-bought believer in Jesus Christ, your conduct and hope should cause the unbelieving world to marvel and question why it is that you act the way you do. Why it is you speak the way that you do. Why it is you love the way you do. Why it is you sing the things you do.

Being labeled a Christian by the outside world should not be something we run from. Whether you are a plumber, electrician, principal or janitor, if someone called you the “Christian librarian”, it should be a badge of honor that represents the Christ who lives in you.

For Lauren Daigle, she actually said she didn’t like being referred to in this way:

“I feel like those labels get put on you by other people. I was reading articles, I read them here in there, and one of them said Christian artist and the other ones said just artist. But I think part of me is just an artist because it encompasses everything. That’s kind of how I see myself.” (Source)

If there was ever a label that someone should call you which encompasses who you truly are, what greater label than one which means “a follower of Christ”? If the outside world believes that this label represents your music, what greater compliment? If the term “artist” represents you better than Christian artist, I have to wonder what it is you prioritize.

I’ve been a wrestling coach for 11 years and I will tell you right now, I would much rather be referred to as a Christian wrestling coach than simply a wrestling coach. The way I coach, the way I talk to my wrestlers, the priorities I have concerning the way they leave after high school, are all better encompassed by my Christian faith. It is the very lense in which I coach through, and if the term “coach” better describes me, then I’ve failed as a Christian. 

Nobody is asking anyone to wave a flag with a cross on it and proclaim themselves a “Christian Artist”. In fact, I would argue that if you had to do that, what sort of content are you putting out? The only concern would be those who would not want their “art” to be associated with the name of Christ. In true Socratic form I ask…why?

 

He also shared this piece on how 'the left' has an agenda of exploiting children.  (guess who also has a video at the bottom of his piece?)

Exploiting Children: Part of the Left’s Agenda

Have you heard about the latest disturbing craze? Drag queens, story times, and parents of drag kids are normalizing the bizarre while dance moms are sexualizing young girls. Sadly, they all have one thing in common: they’re paving the way for sexual abuse including pedophilia. Where is the #MeToo movement on the issue of children? Some of us saw this coming years ago, but how did we get to the point of openly sexualizing innocent children – and promoting it as acceptable?

Let’s start with Nemis, a ten year-old boy in Canada who goes by “Lactacia,” and was featured in a troubling magazine article promoting the life of a so-called “child drag queen.” In a shocking photo, a man who goes by the name “Violet,” and recently won a reality competition called, “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” is seen naked, wearing nothing but a small piece of fabric covering his genitals, standing next to a ten-year-old child who poses seductively.

They boy’s mother, Jessica Melancon, is unapologetic, and allows Nemis to wear whatever he wants because he’s just expressing himself and it “makes him feel beautiful.” To those who say it’s child exploitation and unhealthy, she adds:

“There is so much more going on in the world right now which is more horrifying and terrifying than my child wearing fancy shoes and a skirt. This shouldn’t be on anyone’s list of priorities.”

Liz Wheeler is a host on One America News Network, and recently commented on the photo in her show segment, Final Point. She asked,

“Are drag queens exempt from the laws protecting children from adult sexual predators? …”Tell me how this is possibly OK. Tell me how this is not child abuse. …What makes this any different from child pornography?”

The media is all in. A few months back, rather than protect children from sexual exploitation, what did ABC’s Good Morning America do? They were complicit in this destructive behavior by featuring an 11-year-old named Desmond Napoles on a show. The approving audience acted like clapping seals, programmed to conform to the spectacle. Watch:

Then in December, Desmond performed a sexually-suggestive dance in full drag at a New York City gay bar called 3 Dollar Bill. The boy received dollar bills from the adult males in the audience, as one might see in a strip club. Desmond wore a skimpy outfit and a blond wig as he danced to Gwen Stefani’s “I’m Just A Girl” stirring up the crowd of lusting men.

You do see where this is going, don’t you? Have you ever heard of NAMBLA?

Theologian and Christian Post contributor, Fay Voshell believes this will lead to the reinventing of society:

“The dreams of organizations like the North American Man Boy Love Association, which advocates the open practice of deviant sexualities… are finally being realized… Will we continue to allow open season on children… or will we rise up in outrage against the mainstreaming of sexual deviancy?”

Some have suggested that this phenomena of children in drag is the result of decades of silence of Bible-believing Christians in the face of LGBTQ agendas. Others say it is due to the dumbing down of America and redefining of what it means to be a human being.

Hyper-sexualization of children is not limited to boys. Beauty pageants objectify young girls, and dance competitions train children to emulate pop culture including adult gestures, moves, and costumes. Some are dressed-up like prostitutes and taught to gyrate seductively by their moms and their coaches.

In dance studios around the nation, there has been an increase in children’s seductive and sexy routines. Check out these eight and nine year-old girls dancing in a competition:

Where’s our common sense? Doesn’t this (as well as children in drag) attract pedophiles, child molesters and rapists? Why are so many adults just going along with all this? Hello!?

Things that were once unthinkable have become mainstream. Evil is being called good.

Adultery and abortion used to be mentioned in hushes and whispers but now, proudly proclaimed and justified by millions of Americans. The sexual revolution took immorality to a new level, and soon homosexuality became accepted.

Throw in bisexuality, gender confusion and transition surgery, and same-sex marriage; now children are added to the mix because anything goes – except biblical morality, of course. And if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle or behavior you’re a bigot, hater or homophobe.

So how do we respond? Always with love and patience.

After hearing about this, many of you are angry and justifiably so, but slow down a minute and think about how we can reach people who are either in denial or rebellion. Pray for them to come to the truth, and receive the hope and peace found only in Jesus Christ. And love them enough to tell them the truth about salvation and sin; about God’s love for them; how every human being is created in His image, special and unique, worthy of respect and dignity.

Live counter-culture, keep the faith, and trust God with the rest.

Somewhere deep inside my joyless existence I was hoping that the thread title would lead to something connected to Supernatural and the Winchesters. Wishful thinking - obviously. It sounds like good read though.

@ophelia he probably has some content of one form or another on that show buried somewhere on his site if you dug deep enough.

This guy probably believes if you play rock music backwards you can hear demons whispering on the track. I heard that in a sermon once.

Maybe whoever's wailing on the microphone that JRod mentions is singing rock music backwards.  Oy.

When I was I teen I would listen to DC Talk backwards.

Christian rock band Petra used back masking on a song in 1982.

(Sorry. I can't get the first link to embed. It's worth clicking on, because it plays the back masked section in reverse.)

You just gave me an 80s flashback:

Longer version:

Notice that this was before Jan Crouch completely lost it with the multiple different colored wigs.

Talk about a flashback! I watched that back when it aired! Scared the shit out of me. I think it was at my grandma's house; her tv was either on CBS for her "stories" (soap operas), the news, and then it went to WGGS Channel 16 for the rest of the night.
I'm not watching that whole thing, but I seem to remember the guy playing a recording of a traditional hymn (not Christian rock) backward & it supposedly said " lamb of God" or "praise God" or something. Might have been another episode. 
Oddly enough, Jan looks like she's trying to hide laughter; maybe she can't believe people are stupid enough to fall for that crap, or she's laughing about how much cash is rolling in.

The longer clip I posted has that part.

Jan was receiving a 'word of knowledge' about where to buy more wigs and false eyelashes. :wink-kitty:

I've got two of three of these to share.  (which is why they are under spoilers)

WHY does this one remind me of Miss Raquel?

and he's all upset that someone said Jesus was Greek and therefore has a lengthy post with the 'proof' that this is wrong.

Spoiler

 

 

And oooh toy manufacturers are dooming girl children to hell.  (I've got news for him - when I was 13 or so my crazy aunt who I would later honestly label as at least fundie lite whipped out a Ouija board and played with us at one family gathering.  so Oujia boards by the toy companies are NOT new)

Spoiler

 

Ooops there are four - found one more.  Adam Levine and the Superbowl.  Adam is teh evil.  This one has a youtube video in it for your viewing pleasure.  If you venture over to Youtube after watching this - take a rescue ferret with you.

Apparently Arianna Grande has a deal with the devil.  (hmmm all I knew as a US - BB fan was that her brother is annoying)

Thank you so much for bringing this up! I went to a fundie church for a few months and the pastor made me watch some of their YouTube videos (he had a special hatred for Eminem, which is hilarious considering in his wedding picture he looks exactly like young Marshall Mathers). Ahhh, memories

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
