Wingnuts See Demons Everywhere

I didn’t watch the Grammys because I don’t bother watching the Grammys. But apparently I missed lots and lots of demons. They were everywhere, it seems, shooting out from TV screens to scare the wingnuts. Bryan Fischer thinks Beyonce and Katy Perry have sold their souls to the devil.

And Glenn Beck says Katy Perry’s performance was “full-fledged witchcraft and demonic glorification.”

Gosh Glenn, I sure hope she didn’t put a hex on you. I’m sure Gordon Klingenschmitt will be along soon to identify the specific demons at work here, by name, rank and serial number.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Witchy Women?!??

    So the Eagles were up for a Grammy?

  • Larry

    Well, duh? What do they expect? The theater was built on top of an old, Indian burial ground.

  • lldayo

    I don’t know about demons but whenever those two perform something does “pop up”.

    Nope, it IS the 21st Century!

    Has the Malleus Maleficarum had a Kindle version come out recently?

    And Glenn Beck says Katy Perry’s performance was “full-fledged witchcraft and demonic glorification.”

    Which is why he displays it on a giant screen so his viewers can have a good look at it.

    Demons are making quite a comeback. They really got hammered during the Enlightenment and the science ages.

    1. I suppose the Fairies, Elves, Brownies*, Orcs, Leprechauns, Dragons, Pixies, etc.. will be making a comeback soon.

    2. Where are the angels? A decade ago, they were all over TV and the popular press. Must be taking a vacation or retreating or something. God needs to increase his defense budget and buy some better weapons for them.

    * Brownies do exist. Every night, I put a bowl of food outside the door. It’s gone in the morning. I’ve even seen it a few times. Oddly enough, it looks like…a cat. There are many in the bird feeder but they just look like regular birds.

  • Michael Brew

    Yes, that can be the only explanation: Katy Perry and Beyonce put a Come To Life spell on my penis. It’s not like I was thinking inappropriate thoughts or anything.

  • busterggi

    Beyonce and Katy Perry as demons? Hah! Wait until they get a load of Zoey Deschanel!

  • dingojack

    Raven – Those ‘Brownies’ = they aren’t ones ‘doing a heck of a job’ or ones containing hash by any chance?

    Ahhh that’s better I was worried the poor Katy Perry was going to get left out of the Right Wing rants!

    Bryan Fischer thinks Beyonce and Katy Perry have sold their souls to the devil.

    The logic is self-refuting. If people could sell their souls to the devil for things, then someone would have sold their soul to get Beyonce and/or Katy Perry a long time ago, and they’d no longer be in the spotlight. The fact that they are proves nobody can sell their soul to the devil to get stuff.


  • caseloweraz

    Gee, I thought it was Madonna and Kiley Minaj who they thought were the real threats.

    Or is it that people like Fischer can’t name too many “demons” in one go, or they’ll get ganged up upon?

  • thalwen

    My question is, do they weigh more than a duck?

  • Jeremy Shaffer

    And Glenn Beck says Katy Perry’s performance was “full-fledged witchcraft and demonic glorification.”

    No offense meant to Beck but I think we should really wait until the true right-wing witchcraft expert, Christine O’Donnell, weighs in on the matter.

    Glenn asks: “Where is this country heading”–I know where Glenn’s head is heading: further up his ass until his elbows are no longer visible

  • pita

    Beyonce can’t sell her soul to the devil. If souls existed, having sold one’s soul would be a flaw and, as we all know, Beyonce is flawless.

  • jnorris

    We needn’t worry about glenn Beck getting all demonized watching Ms Perry. Remember, Mr Beck wears magic underwear.

    Raven, I know the Leprechauns are still here. i put a dram of Irish whisky out by the kitchen door on St Patty’s Day and its gone the next morning. Funny I’ve never seen the little guys even though I wake up outside the kitchen door many a Patty’s Day night..
