Pastor John Hagee Warns Congregation About Harry Potter, Ouija Boards, and Rock Music

Over the weekend, Pastor John Hagee railed against Harry Potter readers, Ouija board users, and rock music listeners because they’re all heading away from Jesus and toward Satan:

Here’s the truly horrific part: He’s not joking. People like him exist! And there are thousands of people listening to him in that church, presumably agreeing with him.

Also disturbing: John Hagee thinks you can take rock music and “throw it out and burn it.” As if kids still listen to music on CDs. He must also fear their skateboards and Trapper Keepers.

Technologically, he’s only living a couple of decades in the past… which I guess is an improvement since I had him pegged at about a century behind the times.

  • Glasofruix

    Uh, rock music? Is he living in the 50s?

    • Nancy Shrew

      He’s simultaneously living in the 50s, 80s, and 2001.

  • EvolutionKills

    CD’s? With a reference to Ouija boards, I was expecting him to rally against vinyl albums. You know, back in the heyday of the 70′s when rock n’ roll actually scared people. There was Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, and a whole slew of others. What is he worried about now, Nickleback?

    • Tom

      I’d have thought this guy would welcome the displacement of vinyl by CDs – CDs can’t be played backwards, protecting you from the evil satanic mind control therein.

      That’s unless someone had the bright business idea of making a CD player fitted with a reverse play option specially for the satanic rock market!

      • Makoto

        You suddenly gave me a great idea for an iPhone app…

        • Sweetredtele

          More than one app already exists. Satan wouldn’t waste time getting his message out.

          • Pepe

            Unlike someone called Jesus or something. Such an imbecile.

      • Tainda

        Maybe it’s because vinyl is popular again? Does he think it’s because these so called rockers want to get their demonic message out again?

      • Michael Harrison

        That’s what MP3s are for.

    • Rain

      I tried looking up the Billboard top 100, and… they make you scroll through a bunch of damn pages. I ain’t scrolling through all those damn pages. Just give me a flat list, for cryin out loud. I guess it will just have to be a mystery, lol.

    • Tainda

      I firmly believe, if Satan existed, he is Justin Beiber.

      and I just realized I typed “Stan” instead of “Satan” Sorry Stan!

      • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/ Kevin_Of_Bangor

        Stan has this for you :)

        • Tainda

          Damnit Stan

    • Jim Jones

      Vinyl? That’s the work of the devil. Stick to 78′s, like Jesus used.

      • Nancy Shrew

        I would if I had something to play 78s on :(. Oh, well. More Satanic 45s for me.

    • Michaela Samuels

      Nickelback worries me, though. For entirely different reasons, to be sure. I do, however, find them highly upsetting.

    • Michael Harrison

      I don’t get their beef with Iron Maiden. I have a hard time thinking of a band as scary if they’ve engaged in war protest music. That’s kind of the opposite of a culture of death.

      • EvolutionKills

        The core of their beef is their ignorance. If they cared enough to look into their accusations instead of just trying to scare people, we simply wouldn’t be having this conversation.

      • Heidi McClure

        They don’t actually get any further than seeing Eddie on a t-shirt.

        • EvolutionKills

          Good old Eddie. It’s my understanding that he was based off of some sort of WWII propaganda images, but I can’t remember exactly who are what it was based off of. Dammit I’m going to have to Wiki this at work to pass some time…

      • http://itsmyworldcanthasnotyours.blogspot.com/ wmdkitty

        Heh, have you heard “Holy Smoke”? It’s 100% condemnation of preachers like Hagee.

        “I’ve lived in filth, I’ve lived in sin
        And I still smell cleaner than the shit you’re in!”

      • John the Revelator

        This was the poster that got Iron Maiden banned from my home (and the poster ripped up and burned, natch). All they needed to see was the 666 on the shoulder of Eddie and that was enough.

        http://www.freewebs.com/nemox91/trooper_1000px.jpg

      • Judith_Priest

        And Iron Maiden writes lyrics that are downright *scholarly*, full of history lessons and allusions to works of literature!

        • http://itsmyworldcanthasnotyours.blogspot.com/ wmdkitty

          I’ve had to look shit up more than once, and been, “Whoa.”

    • Hat Stealer

      Gotta stay scared about something.

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/ Kevin_Of_Bangor

      What till he learns there is atheist rappers. We all know rap is bad enough but atheist rap is the work of the super devil.

    • WallofSleep

      In fairness to Hagee, we should all be worried about Nickleback.

    • darren

      If I had a nickleback cd, I’d throw it out the window too.

      • C.L. Honeycutt

        Are you kidding? Nickelback is awesome! Their music costs next to nothing, because once you’ve bought one of their albums, you’ve heard them all. Such a great deal!

        • Tainda

          My eye just twitched rofl

    • DoggieD

      I certainly worry about Nickleback… bad musical taste is far worse than demonic messages…

  • kelemi

    He should become a Muslim and move to Iran. He’d fit in well.

    • The Other Weirdo

      And wouldn’t that just freak out his ignorant followers?

  • cipher

    Here’s something I never get about guys like Hagee and Falwell. They’re supposedly in communication with God every day and he whispers the secrets of the universe into their ears – but not once, apparently, has he ever told them to go on a diet or get some exercise.

    • EvolutionKills

      Funny how God only ever seems to tell them what they want to hear…

      • cipher

        You noticed that too?

        • EvolutionKills

          Yeah, it’s quite a trend actually. Rick Warren’s god sounds like Rick Warren. Pat Robertson’s god sounds like Pat Robertson. Martin Luther’s god sounded like Martin Luther. Thomas Aquinas’ god sounded like Thomas Aquinas. So on and so forth…

          • 3lemenope

            Perhaps the reason they have a hard time making accurate predictions and obtaining facts from the voice of God is that it does sound like them, but only after breathing in a balloon full of helium. So Rick Warren’s god sounds like Rick Warren would if he were trying out for Alvin and the Chipmunks, and so we’re just never going to get proper clarification on that whole vaguely cannibalistic communion…thing.

            • Michael Harrison

              Vaguely cannibalistic? Last I heard, sociologists classified it as cannibalism (well, symbolic cannibalism, but cannibalism nonetheless).

          • Tainda

            I think Pat Robertson’s god sounds like Judge Doom (when he was in toon form) in Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    • CultOfReason

      Funny how Joe Klein never whispers the secrets of the universe in anyone’s ears.

      • cipher

        I bet he would if you asked him to (but he’d claim it was someone else!).

    • Gus Snarp

      While we’re commenting on his appearance: for a guy who doesn’t seem to move around much, maybe they ought to have a mic on the podium instead of that flesh tone headset mic that makes it look like he has a hideous growth on the side of his face.

  • James_Jarvis

    And never, ever let your kids read Harry Potter backwards.

  • Len

    So I guess that means that cigarettes and whisky and wild, wild women are OK again. Good news indeed.

  • Randay

    How does he know about “satanism” in rock music and Harry Potter? Has he listened to it or read it? Then Satan must have entered him. How did he cast him out? Lucky for him he doesn’t seem to know Jonathan Stroud’s “Bartimaeus Trilogy”. It is much darker, and funnier, than Harry Potter. At Amazon, read the readers’ comments.

    http://www.amazon.com/Bartimaeus-3-book-boxed-set-Trilogy/dp/1423136829/ref=sr_1_1/178-3893591-5913835?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1375269094&sr=1-1

  • Rain

    He’s actually a Fox News “analyst”. I’m not sure which one sank lower. Fox News for willing to have him as an analyst, or him for willing to be a Fox News analyst. One or the other of them are willing to sink to some mighty low depths. Not sure which one…

  • johnlev

    Satan in Ouiji Boards? Rock music? How soooo 1970′s and 80′s. Talk about being out of touch.

  • Baby_Raptor

    Pretty sure this is the guy I heard on TV the other day when the resident TeaBagger was getting his daily rah-rah for Jesus on. The guy commented that-horror of horrors!-a Muslim Imam had *recently said things.* He’d talked about how he foresaw a Muslim in the White House by 2020, but “forget 16 years from now, there’s already a Muslim in it.”

  • http://www.holytape.etsy.com Holytape

    It is a great improvement. Last week he was warning people about this new-fangled contraption called “the wheel.” Or as he called it, “The devil’s square.”

    • EvolutionKills

      You sir, get an internet cookie!

  • Damon Icke

    My childhood friend’s mom was like this. It’s not a fear of backward messages. It’s that according to them any song that doesn’t glorify Jesus’s name should not be sung. If it’s not about Jesus than it’s about someone else which can influence you and set you down a dark path. She had us watch a silly documentary about the dangers of songs that aren’t about Jesus.

  • Rebecca M

    I’m just surprised that people still aren’t over the whole rock music thing.

    • onamission5

      But.. but.. syncopated beats! They mess up your heart rhythm, cause sexual aggression, and make it easier for demons to enter your soul!
      The above statement reflects actual ideas told to me by actual adults in actual church youth group meetings some 25 years ago.

      • 3lemenope

        There is solid scientific evidence that rock music does lead to dancing. Surprised they didn’t just go with that.

      • Bdole

        When played on a computer, they allow daemons into your OS.

  • Aureliano_Buendia

    Considering the Harry Potter stories tend to follow the traditional Christian model of hero = sacrifice (especially with the end of the final book), I think Pastor Hagee would be infinitely more frightened of Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality fanfiction. The scientific method is much more terrifying for fundamentalists than magic.

    • indorri

      Ooh, a fellow reader. Hi there.

    • Baby_Raptor

      I keep seeing this fanfic mentioned. Is it being mentioned because it’s amazing, or because it’s another My Immortal?

      • tsara

        It’s awesome.

      • indorri

        If you’re a fan of Elizer Yudkowsky’s writing, you’ll really like it.

        Basically, it’s “what if Harry Potter tried to apply scientific rationalism to the world of magic”, with a heavy dose of Yudkowsky’s moral philosophy.

      • Aureliano_Buendia

        I highly recommend it. I’m skeptical of fanfiction in general, but decided to give it a try… well worth it. A great fit for those who enjoyed the HP series and have an interest in scientific reasoning and current theories. The author also explains all of the science mentioned in the chapters. It’s not only educational but interesting and at times laugh-out-loud hilarious!

      • badgerchild

        Recommended, especially for all geek fans of the Harry Potter series.

  • EvolutionKills

    Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute…

    How in the 9 Hells did he NOT mention Dungeons & Dragons!? I mean with all those books and papers and polyhedral dice, SURELY they are up to no good! Right?

    He must be loosing his edge…

    • viaten

      And he’s probably oblivious to online role playing games.

      • Tainda

        DON’T GIVE HIM ANY IDEAS! lol

        • viaten

          Why not? I’d love to hear what he makes of it and other things people do on the internet, with their smart phones, etc. He could only look sillier.

          • Tainda

            Because then my head really would explode

        • EvolutionKills

          Oh come on, it could be fun! Lets see if we can’t trick him into thinking people actually worship the fictitious pantheons they created for the Forgotten Realms setting! I would die laughing hearing him rally against the evils of worshiping Mystra, Sune, Tempus, Lolth, etc…

          • Tainda

            I worship Innoruuk!

            • C.L. Honeycutt

              Innoruuk… *strains brain for a while* Gah, the mention of the Forgotten Realms threw me off! Everquest had a gorgeous setting! If only my PC could have handled the Planes. *sadface*

              • Tainda

                I still play EQ from time to time. They just came out with their 19th expansion hahaha It will forever be my first and most fondly remembered MMO

                • C.L. Honeycutt

                  I tried earlier this year to reinstall it just for nostalgia, and cause I was curious if my old account still existed, but it would never finish.

                  Probably just as well. There could be a person or two playing who remembered me. My guild broke up because in the pre-Ventrilo Good Old Days, they all decided I was a woman pretending to be a man while playing a female character so that guys wouldn’t bug me, and they fought “over” me.

                  I’M NOT KIDDING.

                • Tainda

                  Oh I know you’re not kidding. In those days it was male dominated to be sure and if they even THOUGHT you were a female it was like throwing bloody meat in a pool of sharks lol Ahhhh, those WERE the good ole days lol

                • C.L. Honeycutt

                  Holee crap, all the drama and behind-the scenes smexings. There was a couple who both played EQ that I knew in-game. They were into D/s, and wanted me to come meet them in real life for some “fun” in that regard. There were multiple people trying to date me; one of the best was the college kid who knew I wasn’t Christian and who, so far as I can tell, was pretending to be Wiccan to get with me. He either believed in real magic or else assumed I would. And there was an incredibly hot married couple from Kansas or Oklahoma who actually believed I was a man, and since we gelled so well, invited me to their “seasonal party”… by which I mean their regular orgy at their place.

                  Come to think of it, Everquest was FUN. ^^

                  I made a female Iksar monk after my guild broke up, for the specific reason that the original character models were so ugly that I had never once seen one played, and started leveling in the always-empty starter zone. Big mistake. Within an hour I’d been hit on four times. High levels were coming over just to say hello to me and offer me gifts. Who the hell even knows how they found me? Did someone go to the Commons tunnel and shout “GIRL ALERT”?

                • Tainda

                  I was reading your first paragraph and thought, that was the fun! Then I saw your next sentence and laughed lol

                  They have changed a lot since then. I’m playing Star Wars now and I don’t think many people even socialize at all on it lol

          • C.L. Honeycutt

            Lolth wasn’t created for the Forgotten Realms. Die, Heathen!

            • EvolutionKills

              Really? I’ve only ever been familiar with her Spider-Queen of the Drow persona. What was she originally?

              • C.L. Honeycutt

                Oh that’s exactly who she is. The Forgotten Realms came out in the late ’80s, and Lolth predates that by about a decade. She appeared in several modules that AFAIK were in a generic setting, but might have been Greyhawk. She should be exactly the same character now, just more refined.

                **acts like a game veteran but was born the same year that D&D was published**

                • 3lemenope

                  Yep. Greyhawk. The wiki article on Lolth is absurdly detailed, as in, probably a great deal more detailed than most Gods that humans have actually worshiped.

                • EvolutionKills

                  Whatever, it’s all good. I inherited my step-dad’s D&D Basic (complete with the original blue dice set) kit when I was a kid, eventually got into 2ndED in middle school and was on the scene in high-school and college for the jump from TSR to WotC and the release of 3rdED, 3.5, and 4thED. Actually 4th came out while I was still in my Game Design program, so I think I am one of the few human beings who really liked it from a purely conceptual design standpoint. Unfortunately, I never got to play 4th much, and then I fell out of it years ago when I moved away from my gaming group. Good times.

    Just a few words for you Hagee…

    Now I’m not pretty and I’m not cool
    But I’m fat and I’m ugly and proud – so fuck you
    Standing out is the new pretension
    Streamline the sickness, half-assed aggression
    You gotta see it to believe it, we all got conned
    All the mediocre sacred cows we spawned
    Put your trust in the mission
    We will not repent – this is our religion

    “get it out of the house and burn it” Burn an mp3? I think kids are already doing that…

    • 3lemenope

      Yeah, it would be passingly funny to be his kid for a day just to play the whole “I’m going to go burn a bunch of rock music, daddy Hagee.” “Oh, son, I’m so proud of you! Fight Satan’s power!” “Yes, daddy. That’s exactly what I’m doing. Pay no attention to the blank CDs…”

      • Gus Snarp

        Or: “Daddy, I burned all the rock music in the house!”

        “Oh, that’s great, son, I’m so proud of you. Now I just need to go finish up the sermon I started yesterday, then update the church’s financial records and……um……what happened to the computer?”

  • Buckley

    Every couple of months he goes off on a “End Time” rant. He seems to do that more than most. And his knee-jerk support for all things Israel (except for the Muslims) is frightening. This man would be a carnival freak if not for the fact that so many people listen and follow his teachings. He also does this cult trick where he emphasizes items by snapping his fingers so that over time you are conditioned.

    • Gus Snarp

      Which is funny, because he also seems pretty anti-semitic. Of course, he wants Israel to be a Jewish state so all the Jews can be exterminated in the apocalypse.

      Talk about hubris, this guy thinks that god is going to end the world in a preordained horror fest of war, pestilence, famine, fire, and brimstone but for some reason he needs our government to support Israel to make that possible. You’d think a god who created, and was going to destroy, the entire world would be able to fulfill his own prophecy without our help.

      In my day the people who were “immantentizing the eschaton” were the bad guys.

    • advancedatheist

      Ironically Hagee, Hal Lindsey, Tim LaHaye and similar preachers have the right idea when they say that all the christians will disappear in the rapture. The christians will disappear, all right, but through natural attrition as the religion declines and doesn’t replace its members with converts.

      I suspect that efforts to revive christianity after its demise in a few centuries won’t succeed, either, because religions do wear out their welcome. People have tried to revive ancient pagan religions like worship of the Norse or Greek gods, but they have remained fringe beliefs which other people tolerate as personal quirks.

  • Gus Snarp

    The really disturbing part is the influence this guy has in Republican politics. He’s the perfect example of why it’s always worth pointing out the fundamentalist extremists – because you never know when politicians are going to come calling for their endorsements.

    • badgerchild

      My husband, an immigrant from Northern Ireland, says he knows bloody well what anti-Catholic bigotry looks like. Which is one huge reason he’s an atheist.

  • http://atheistlutheran.blogspot.com/ MargueriteF

    Every one of my kids has been a fanatic reader of Harry Potter (and a lot of other fantasy). And we listen to rock, too. My kids are all being raised in an atheist household… which of course means we’re all secretly devil worshippers. So you see he’s got a point *grins*.

    I’m 45, and even I don’t buy physical music any more. To burn my music, you’d have to torch my iPhone and my computer. But as a bonus, you could get a lot of my books that way, too!

        Well, exactly. All my kids read way above grade level– not solely due to Harry, of course, but there’s no doubt he’s helped. I am very grateful to Ms. Rowling for her assistance in keeping my kids reading.

        • EvolutionKills

          That’s awesome, I love to see people have an enthusiasm for reading. I remember being back in 6th grade (I think?) and wondering why everyone else was complaining about reading ‘Animal Farm’ when I had already finished Stephan King’s ‘The Stand’ and Frank Herbert’s ‘DUNE’ the summer before. ‘Animal Farm’ was a breeze, and enlightening read, not by no means a hard one at that point. Still, glad to see other’s appreciate the medium as much as I do!

          • Tainda

            That’s when I read Dune too and have been a super fan ever since.

            I’m also the kid who started at the beginning of the library’s fiction section and worked my way around lol Loved biographies too back then

            • EvolutionKills

              ‘DUNE’ is one of those books I had to go back to and re-read later, and I got a lot more out of it the second and third time reading it. It’s one of a handful of books I tend to re-read every couple of years, along with Robert A. Heinlein’s ‘Starship Troopers’, Anne McCaffrey’s ‘Dragonriders of Pern’ and a few Robert E. Howard ‘Conan the Barbarian’ stories to boot.

        • Mackinz

          I grew up reading H.P. and I too had a well above average reading level. Ms. Rowling was an exceptional influence on my life.

          Glad to hear I’m not the only one!

      • C.L. Honeycutt

        Indeed. I don’t think much of some aspects of her writing, but her ability to get kids reading vastly outweighs any complaint less immediate than “The books are actually made of live scorpions that have been tied together and forced to read Stephanie Meyer.”

    • Artor

      I burn lots of music…onto mp3 cd’s, so I can play it on my car stereo.

  • Gus Snarp

    Harry Potter. If he thinks that’s scary and evil, just wait until he reads some Neil Gaiman.

    • Japooh

      American Gods would explode his head… should we send him a copy?

  • Mick

    “He’s not joking. People like him exist!”

    He may not be joking, but I’ll bet he’s easily swayed. When a parishioner regularly donates large sums to the church and then complains about her children who are listening to rock music, I’ll bet the response is something like this: “Don’t worry about it. They come from a fine family and Jesus will look after them. Everything will be alright – and while you’re here, might as well fix up this week’s tithes, eh?”

  • The Other Weirdo

    What is this, the 20th century? Can’t somebody tell him to get on with life already? Those of us who follow Santa have long ago moved past vinyl. These days we buy CDs instead, grind them into power and sneak the Santanic message contained therein into unsuspecting people’s drinks.

              Goddammit, now I’m hungry.

        • Japooh

          Rainbow-gasm for word of the day!

  • BenFromCA

    Did he also mention that you can find a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow?

  • Oranje

    I hope the Berlin Wall falls someday, too.

  • Cake

    At least he didn’t say to throw away their vinyl records or cassette tapes.

  • WallofSleep

    What, no mention of Alf, Pogs, or Garbage Pail Kids? Man, Hagee’s game is slippin’.

    • EvolutionKills

      Pogs? Awe man, that brings back memories…

      I didn’t see much Alf, it was on the same time as McGyver, and I always wanted to watch the mullet-ed super-handyman over the cat eating creepy puppet…

    • Nancy Shrew

      And PokemAn cards.

    I just wasted an entire minute and twenty-nine seconds praying for a D&D shout-out. Thanks for nothing, Hemant.

    Technologically, he’s only living a couple of decades in the past… which
    I guess is an improvement since I had him pegged at about a century
    behind the times.

    What is it with these people? I once mocked a Creationist* in an area newspaper for citing anti-Evolution sources fifty years out of date. His response was to cite another source that was 75+ years old, then finally one that was ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OLD.

      They usually trying to argue in favor of an 2500+ year old fairy tale to explain a 6000-10000 year old Earth. Time management and the evaluation of evidence never seemed to be their strong points, not that those arguing for Creationism have many on their side.

  • Obazervazi

    For some real fun, somebody should tell him about Shin Megami Tensei.

  • Sacks Romana

    I sort of love people like this. In an effort to be consistent with wackier aspects of the bible they’re forced to live in fear of science fiction and fantasy fiction. Their ridiculous inability to differentiate real and fake stories can not be lost on all their followers, and must lead to quite a few doubters.

  • RD

    How did skateboards get into this?

  • Matt Bowyer

    What year is this, again? I thought we were in the 21st century.

  • Mike De Fleuriot

    The problem is these folk, like Hagee, keep themselves away from rational people. If we could meet with them and challenge them in public face to face, their followers would see how invalid their claims are.

  • Heidi McClure

    My mom believed all that garbage, so I knew it was out there. But wow. Actually watching those sheeple sit in the audience nodding at this guy spewing crap like “if you embrace the bad, you reject the good” was… wow.

  • Gluon

    Maybe he’s warning hipsters.

  • Jonathan Olds

    Well, Justin Bieber IS of the Devil!!

  • nkendall

    In other news, researches find a space-time anomaly that leaves a small region of the universe consistently suck in 1950.

  • more compost

    I know people who are this deluded. This timid. This cowardly. This hateful and ignorant.

    I don’t spend much time around them.

  • houndies

    ugh! this guy needs some new material. he’s been preaching this same bullsh*t since I was a little kid in the 80′s.

    False dichotomy. False dichotomy. False dichotomy. False dichotomy. False dichotomy. False dichotomy.

  • Lori F

    He is so far behind the times. What about Percy Jackson? They actually interact with Roman Gods!

  • SeekerLancer

    Meanwhile, the Internet cackles in the background and does more damage to Christianity than all of those things combined.

  • DoubleDogDiogenes

    Let the book burnings begin!

  • Michael Hill

    John
    Hagee calls himself a “Friend of Israel”. I wonder how the Israelis
    would like it if they were to find out that Hagee is a leader in the
    “End of Days” movement, You know, the one where Jews will convert to
    Christianity or die By The Sword.

  • Karen Greene

    So sad that this half witted moron lives here in San Antonio.

  • HatterDon

    I’m so proud that he’does his thang in my home town.
