Pop Culture Satanists

In the last couple of days, some of us on FOTM (see the comments section of the post, “Can Newt be Trusted?“) engaged each other in a lively debate about the curious “horns” hand signal that some politicians and pop stars make.

To some, they’re making the devil’s horns. Others say it’s really the “I luv u” or “rock on” signings at a rock or metal concert.

Christians have had the sign of the cross, holy hymns and sacred songs for centuries. Why is it incredible that the opposing side also have theirs?
Take a look at this video of a live performance of a death metal group called Possessed, in Berkeley in 1985. [Warning: suffocating spiritual darkness]

Wikipedia says:

Possessed is an American death metal band, originally formed in 1983. Noted for their fast style of playing and Jeff Becerra’s guttural vocals, they have been cited as a great influence on the death metal genre. In fact, the band’s influence on the genre is so great, they are sometimes called the first band in the death metal genre. Possessed are often cited as the first death metal band, largely because of the early use of grunted vocals. Satanic themes they had become noted for. Lyrically, most of Possessed’s songs focused on Satanism and death. The band’s efforts on [their first album] Seven Churches have been called an influence by groups like Death, Pestilence, Sepultura, Deicide, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Vader, God Dethroned and Amon Amarth.

The band originated in the San Francisco Bay Area, California in 1983, when guitarist Mike Torrao and drummer Mike Sus’s garage band recruited Jeff Becerra following the suicide of vocalist Barry Fisk. In 1990, Jeff Becerra was paralyzed from the waist down following a shooting incident.

Did you know that the popular hip-hop artist Jay-Z, with a net worth of over $150 million and married to Beyonce Knowles, has a song to “Lucifer” in his 2003 The Black Album? ( H/t NiceneTruth.com)

Was That a Fake Baby Bump?

Here’s something totally non-political for a Friday….
Beyoncé is a very popular pop singer and actress. I’ve never listened to her, other than her serenading Barry and Moochelle as the “First Couple” danced at his 2009 inaugural ball.
But I do know that Beyoncé’s husband is Jay-Z, a wildly successful rapper, record producer and entrepreneur, because of the sinister name of one of his songs, “Lucifer,” and the occult symbolism in his music.
Beyoncé says she’s pregnant and is due to give birth in February, which means she’s in her second trimester.
Earlier this week, she appeared on the Australian talk show “Sunday Night HD.” As Beyoncé sat down before her interviewer, her baby bump appeared to collapse, fueling rumors that she’s wearing a prosthetic belly, and that she and Jay-Z had hired a surrogate to carry the baby, their first.
Here are pics of her sitting down, showing the peculiar collapsed baby bump. To watch an ABCNews video of this, click here.

I know this belongs in the category of Pop Culture Trivia, but it just looks weird to me. I wonder what readers of FOTM who have carried a pregnancy to term think. Let’s hear from you!
