Note: This is a restoration of my post that was originally published on December 14, 2013. After WordPress burned down this blog, Fellowship of the Minds, on August 15, 2018, we had to restore our thousands of posts one by one. However, a few posts are lost, seemingly forever. This post was one of them, until I found it reblogged on PaperBlog, which enabled me to republish it.
Kabbalah and Scientology are so yesterday.
The latest fad of Hollyweird is Satanism itself, dressed up as a revival of the late occultist Aleister Crowley’s (1875–1947) sex cult, Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) or Thelema.

The Daily Mailreports, April 21, 2013, that celebrities are now falling for an even more sinister “religion” of Ordo Templi Orientis – the “Satanic sex cult” founded by Aleister Crowley, b. 1875, who styled himself “the Great Beast 666″ and reveled in being called “the wickedest man in the world.”
Crowley was born into an upper-class evangelical Christian English family. He fashioned a form of worship involved sadomasochistic sex rituals with men and women (Crowley was openly bisexual), spells which he claimed could raise malevolent gods, and the use of hard drugs, including opium, cocaine, heroin and mescaline.
Crowley’s motto and that of OTO is “do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law,” which is also the motto of the contemporary Church of Satan.
The new-old Satanic cult has snared stars such as Peaches Geldof, Jay-Z, and Led Zeppelin guitariist Jimmy Page. The latter is so intrigued by Crowley he bought his former home, Boleskine House, on the shores of Loch Ness in Scotland.
Peaches Geldof (left), a 24-year-old socialite whose father is the Irish singer-songwriter Bob Geldof, had flirted with Scientology and Kaballah. Recently, she shared her “religious” convictions with her 148,000 followers on Twitter, and even has the cult’s OTO initials tattoed on her left forearm.
There are now OTO lodges scattered around the country, practicing Crowley’s ceremonial magik rituals. While membership is secret, Geldorf is said to have been initiated into it, raising the prospect that many of her impressionable fans could try to do the same.
Indeed, when one of her Twitter followers asked how she could find out more about Thelema, Geldorf directed her to read his books, which she described as ‘super interesting’.
RapperJay-Zhas repeatedly purloined imagery and quotations from Crowley’s work. Some examples:
Wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with “Do what thou wilt”.
Hiring singer Rihanna to hold aloft a flaming torch in his music videos. The torch is a reference to the Illuminati.
Jay-Z’s clothing line, Rocawear, is shot through with OTO imagery such as the “all seeing eye” in a triangle, the “eye of Horus” (an ancient Egyptian symbol frequently referenced in occult texts) and the head of Baphomet.
A former FBI agent, Ted Gundersen, who investigated Satanic circles in Los Angeles, found that Crowley’s teachings about “raising demons to do one’s bidding” suggested human sacrifice, preferably of “an intelligent young boy.”
On December 1, 1947, at age 72, Crowley died of chronic bronchitis aggravated by pleurisy and myocardial degeneration.
So much for magik.
Here’s a video showing singers Bob Dylan and Katy Perry, and rappers Kanye West and Eminem, admitting they’d sold their souls to the devil:
Yeah, that’s the ticket! This will definitely change my mind about returning to watching the NFL. NOT.
From Yahoo: (The post JAY-Z announces entertainment and social partnership with NFL appeared first on Consequence of Sound.)
Always remember, JAY-Z isn’t a businessman, he’s a business, man. Not long after becoming the world’s first billionaire rapper, he signed up to be the chief brand strategist of cannabis company Caliva. Now the hip-hop mogul has entered into another high-profile partnership — with the NFL.
The New York Times reports that the NFL and Roc Nation have signed a deal that makes JAY-Z the league’s “live music entertainment strategist.” The role will involve JAY-Z and his team consulting on the Super Bowl halftime show as well as other league concert events. That’s heartening news for those of us who have been disappointed in recent lackluster Super Bowl performances from the likes of Maroon 5 and Justin Timberlake.
What’s interesting about the deal, however, is that JAY-Z has been a vocal critic of how the NFL has handled the anthem kneeling protests and Colin Kaepernick’s apparent blackballing. In fact, the buzz in 2017 was that he turned down the halftime gig as an act of solidarity with the former NFL quarterback.
Which is likely why the partnership is far from limited to music programming. Roc Nation will be heavily involved in the league’s key social initiatives. That includes the “Inspire Change” social justice campaign, which makes donations to “groups fighting for criminal justice reform, opportunities in economically challenged areas and better relations between the police and local communities.”
“The NFL has a great platform, and it has to be all-inclusive,” JAY-Z told the Times. “They were willing to do some things, to make some changes, that we can do some good.”
“We don’t want people to come in and necessarily agree with us; we want people to come in and tell us what we can do better,” said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. “I think that’s a core element of our relationship between the two organizations, and with Jay and I personally.”
An official announcement will be made a press conference tomorrow. We’ll see if Roc Nation can help change the culture of the NFL or lead to more artists being willing to work with the league again.

Yesterday, July 14, the Disney movie “The Lion King” premieredin Leicester Square, London, UK.
Among the “celebrities” in attendance were Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (in a one-size-too-small $4,343 dress designed by Jason Wu), Beyoncé, who voices Nala in the movie, and her satanist husband, Jay Z.
“The Lion King” is a live-action remake of the 1994 animated movie of the same name, which 34-year-old Prince Harry says is his favorite movie of all time, having watched it more than 20 times. Arrested development, anyone?
This is what 37-year-old Beyoncé wore for the premier of a children’s movie — a yellow gown slit to the waist, which exposes her legs, and which, when she walks, reveals her (unshaved) crotch.
From MSN: Five members of the Congressional Black Caucus took a $60,000 trip to see Beyoncé and other stars perform in concert in South Africa late last year, according to congressional disclosure records.
The lawmakers were U.S. Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Barbara Lee of California, Bobby Rush of Illinois, Terri Sewell of Alabama and Hank Johnson of Georgia, according to the data.
They attended the “Global Citizen Mandela 100” concert Dec. 1-3 to celebrate the centenary birth of the late Nelson Mandela and raise awareness of global poverty. In addition to Beyoncé, other musical acts included her husband, Jay Z, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams and Chris Martin.
The lawmakers appeared in a photo that the Rev. Al Sharpton, who also attended the event, posted on his Twitter page.
The trip was paid for by Global Citizen, a nonprofit that lobbies for anti-poverty programs around the world, the Washington Examiner reported. The group said the presence of members of Congress at the concert would “showcase America’s ongoing commitment [to] health equality and global human rights.”
Other celebrities at the event included Oprah Winfrey and “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah.
“In the spirit of Nelson Mandela, we pledge to keep working with our colleagues in Congress, across the country and across the aisle, to make sure that every child in Africa and at home has the opportunity to thrive and grow in a safe and prosperous world,” Meeks said, according to the Examiner.
“As a Sr. member of the Foreign Affairs Comm[ittee] who understands the importance of both multilateral & bilateral relations on trade & foreign policy, developing that relationship is crucial,” Meeks said when asked how the trip was related to his congressional duties.
The National Legal and Policy Center, a watchdog group, called the trip a “mockery.”
“These members of Congress that were given an all-expense paid vacation to party with Oprah, Jay Z, and Beyoncé in South Africa are claiming with a straight face this was needed to help poor children around the world live better lives,” Tom Anderson, president of the NLPC’s Government Integrity Project, told the Examiner. “This was in fact, a mockery of House ethics rules on gifts and travel, the truly poor, and all Americans that expect members of Congress to live not only by the letter of the law but by the spirit and intentions of the rules of the House of Representatives.”
A representative for Sewell said her travel “was pre-approved by the House Ethics Committee and was not paid for at taxpayer expense” and that “Rep. Sewell and several other members attended the Global Citizen Mandela 100 Festival, a platform for world leaders to speak out against racial injustice and inequity, and voice their support for international assistance for underprivileged populations.”
According to the travel itinerary, the congressional members were in South Africa for one full day and used two partial days for travel.
In January, a group of Democrats was criticized for flying to Puerto Rico for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC gathering in San Juan, where they also attended a special performance of the Broadway play “Hamilton.”

You should know that “rimming” — licking another’s anus — is akin to licking your toilet bowl.
This is what passes as “higher education” in America’s universities. Dinah Holtzman, a faculty member at Indiana University — a public, i.e., taxpayer-funded university — dedicated an entire academic journal article to Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s rimming of each other’s anus.
They lick each other’s anus
Jay-Z’s real name is Shawn Carter. Beyoncé’s full name is Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.
Holtzman pretentiously accords great significance to the couple’s rimming, which she euphemistically calls “analingus” and “cake eating”. Holtzman calls their rimming a mark of “black” culture and applauds Beyoncé’s licking of her husband’s anus as an act of “feminism”.
Below is the abstract of Dinah Holtzman’s article, “Ass You Lick It: Bey and Jay Eat Cake,” in the journal Black Camera, vol. 9, no. 1 (Fall 2017):
This essay investigates a period from 2010 to 2014 in which Beyoncé covertly celebrates mutual marital analingus with her husband rapper Jay-Z. This is no coy allusion to transgressive sex play but rather an embrace of egalitarian erotic practices. Such a radical position is especially significant since, other than the Obamas, the Carters are the premiere example of a successful black heterosexual marriage. The couple’s subtle promotion of cake eating suggests the key to commensurate male-female coupling is to queer and black(en) heterosex. The Carters’ down-low affirmation of reciprocal analingus is notable because of the larger cultural debates around Beyoncé’s embrace of feminism in late 2013 in the midst of her “Mrs. Carter Tour.” Through a close reading of the Carters’ references to cake eating, I argue that the couple’s coital customs are feminist, queer (heterosexual), and black.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Dinah Holtzman is a visiting lecturer (which means she’s a non-tenured year-to-year hire, thank God) in Gender Studies at the American Studies Department of Indiana University, Bloomington.
Despite her “visiting lecturer” title, she is listed as part of the “core faculty” of the American Studies Department. Her research areas are New Media, Sexuality Studies, U.S. and South Asian popular culture, contemporary art, queer of color critique as well as critical race, feminist, psychoanalytic and queer theory.
Holtzman has an abysmal overall rating of only 2.2 (on a scale of 1 to 5) on Rate My Professors.

Beyoncé and Jay Z wired ‘tens of thousands’ of dollars to bail out protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo., a writer says.
Jay Z and Beyoncé bankrolled protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson with tens of thousands of dollars in bail money, a writer and social activist close to him claimed.
“I can say I’ve personally helped facilitate donations they’ve given to protesters directly and that they never ask for anything in return, especially publicity,” author dream hampton told the Daily News in an email.
The writer, who collaborated on Jay Z’s book “Decoded,” first revealed the power couple’s behind-the-scenes support in a series of tweets on Sunday morning.
“When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I asked hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson, wired tens of thousands in mins.” hampton wrote.
