Growing up as a Christian teen in the early 80s, I remember reading one of Bob Larson’s anti-rock music books and finding it pretty funny. Even Christian rock could let the demons in, they claimed, when it really just let shitty music in. John Hagee tells his congregation that rock music is “Satanic cyanide” and should be burned. It really must be weird to live in such perpetual fear of things that don’t exist. Being afraid of demons is no different than being afraid of goblins or leprechauns.
