Satanism at the Grammys

At the Grammy Awards last weekend apparently Nicki Minaj did a routine that paid homage to film Beyond the Door (similar to The Exorcist).

This was enough for a couple Catholic groups to lose their shit.  An article on called the performance Satanic and cranked the martyr up to eleven.

“Nicki’s disturbing performance at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards was a blatant attack on the Catholic church.  No one is sure why she has such disdain for the Church but many actually believe she is simply evil and it [sic] reflected in everything she does and every song she sings and every performance she gives.”

Ray Garton has a beautiful take down of the whole mess that ends with a line I thought was spectacular.

You want people to show your religion respect?  Then your religion is going to have to do what every other organization on earth that wants respect has to do.

Stop being such a monumental, obnoxious pain in the ass and earn it.

It’s bound to give Bill Donohue a hernia.
