Christian Pastor Attacks Paris Victims for Attending Death Metal Concert
"Well, you love death so much, you bought the ticket, you love worshiping Satan!"
Christian Pastor Steven Anderson delivered a sermon attacking the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks. In the hour-long sermon, he explains that he doesn't condone the actions of the terrorists, but he also doesn't condone the concertgoers who went to attend a "death metal" concert.
I know, I know Eagles of Death Metal aren't REALLY death metal, or even close, but we'll get to that after we see what Pastor Anderson had to say. Start the video at the 5:30 mark.
When you go to a concert of death metal, somebody might get killed! You know, you’re worshiping death, and then, all of a sudden, people start dying!… Well, you love death so much, you bought the ticket, you love worshiping Satan! Well, let’s have some of Satan’s religion come in and shoot you!
I mean, that’s what these people should think about before they go into such a wicked concert…
Oh, and he also decided to take it all the way to childish name calling, by referring to lead singer Jesse Hughes as a "drug-pushing hillbilly f*ggot."
The band Eagles of Death Metal aren't actually a death metal act! Band member Josh Homme described the band's sound as "bluegrass slide guitar mixed with stripper drum beats and Canned Heat vocals." The name is actually a parody and their music could be described as bluesy rock more than death metal.
Later in the sermon, Pastor Anderson attacks the country of France calling it a "sinful, wicked nation." Thats about where I couldn't listen to him anymore. You can continue to listen to the rest of the sermon if you want, but I couldn't stomach it anymore.
