Beyonce Superbowl Ritual Satanic? You be the judge.

You might not believe in a God, but I'm pretty convinced that these people do.

So she just says this stuff why now?

Beyonce talks about the spirit that she allows to possess her

“When I see video of myself on stage or TV I’m like, ‘Who is that girl?’. That’s not me, I wouldn’t dare do that.” Beyonce, September 2003

“I created my stage persona to protect myself, so that when I go home, I don’t have to think about
what it is I do. Sasha isn’t me.” Beyonce, Parade Magazine, December 2006

“I wouldn’t like Sasha if I met her offstage.” Beyonce, Parade Magazine, December 2006

“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am.” Beyonce Press Statement, October 2008

“Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.” Beyonce Press Statement, October 2008

“I’ve created an alter ego: things I do when performing I would never do normally. I reveal things about myself that I wouldn’t do in an interview. I have out-of-body experiences [on stage]. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.” Beyonce, Marie Claire interview, October 2008

“Beyonce is gripped by a spirit so powerful, it even has a name — Sasha!” Rolling Stone Magazine, 2004

2Co 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Fractured psyche? Sold her

Fractured psyche? Sold her soul to the devil? I dunno, but I think Jayz/Bouncy need to back away from the ougi board.

I knew it!

"Fully half the quotations found on the internet are either mis-attributed, or outright fabrications." - Abraham Lincoln

Lolwut? Those are some weird

Those are some weird ass quotes, but I wouldn't read that much into it.
It's also kind of distracting that the narrator sounds like a surfer.
I kept expecting him to say "Far out" or "Cowabunga dude."

Last week she was an Illuminati....

Symbols have been recycled over and over again throughout history. Beyonce does this because it looks cool. Throwing up a triangle sign doesn't make you satanic anymore than throwing up 3 fingers make you a Vice Lord gang member.. People have been saying music is the devils work for ages. Elvis, Beatles, rolling stone, Marlyn Mansion... I thought the people at the DP were more evolved then this. I think the Super bowl halftime show has gotten far more attention than it deserved. Lets move on

Marilyn Manson (not Mansion),

Marilyn Manson (not Mansion), is a head of the church of satan. The Beatles put Aleister Crowley on their album cover, and were involved in various weird new age practices.

When a person says he is a satanist, it is reasonable to believe they are a satanist.

Elvis Presley sang gospel songs.

Elvis Presley - In the garden

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Jimmy Page

Was also an Aleister Crowley enthusiast and even bought his house.
Here is an article about the house.

The estate, once the home of millionaire rock star Jimmy Page, has been linked to a number of incidents over the years, including at least two violent deaths.
"The demons and evil forces had congregated round me so thickly that they were shutting off the light. It was a comforting situation. There could be no more doubt of the efficiency of the operation," Crowley wrote of his experiments at the estate."

"Its easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled."
Mark Twain

The only aspect I'd consider

The only aspect I'd consider Beyonce's music satanic is that it would probably raise the evil one from the depths of the earth just so he could cut the power to her mic.

Southern Agrarian

Hmmm using it to get attention

and as a selling gimmick. The danger is that young people might adopt some of the VALUES associated with satanism if it becomes so prevalent in the public view.

There are different planes of awareness. The astral plane is the easiest to contact, the spirit realm, ghosts. Some people scare themselves with all this and need to remember that there is nothing to fear in any encounter. You are more powerful than any spirit or anything you might encounter. If you are one to have contacts, come up above the atmosphere to the higher angelic realm which is a realm of LOVE and caring. Seek that rather than satan and spirits and demons. Go higher.

The satanic values encourage ego, sensuality, emotion, fear, and all the perverted rituals that go with the cult. Do we really want these ideas to begin to pervade society? I would not buy into it or buy any products that encourage it.


I think this is looking too deep into meaninglessness. I believe Jay-Z probably ignorantly stole these symbols to turn them into some form of "cool hip hop brand" and nothing more. Not sticking up for him or Beyonce.. just sayin'.

explain jayz wearing a sweatshirt with an alisti crowley quote on the front of it


"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL


I don't think he's a satan worshipper, and if he is I don't really care, just makes him that much more of a dumb f*ck in my opinion. It's their liberty to sell their souls (whatever that really means).

Beep beep boop beep... I am a Paulbot... prepare for liberty and prosperity!

It's far more than just Jay-z using these symbols.

I think sometimes we might be a little ignorant as to what's really behind the music industry ourselves. Just as we were a little ignorant towards the controlling powers behind the mainstream media that blacked out the Ron Paul movement. Or as even many Ron Paul people, they still aren't aware of who really was behind 9/11 and still believe that some crazy Islamists with box-cutters hijacked a bunch of planes.

2Co 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Well, what's really behind

Well, what's really behind the music industry? because I admit, I'm completely ignorant.

johnny 5 u crack me up man,

yeah people like to emulate the stars they adore and watch, why is occultism and occult like practices so prevalent in the movie/music industry, because sex sells.

yeah its their liberty to act out these fantasies on stage , but the fact is that inoccent youth take all of this imagery in and who knows what it does to developing minds , who knows ?

yeah but your're right , it definitely should not matter to you.

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."

Its an entertainment theatrical show.

The singer's image is a commercial product. The illusion created is great marketing. It does what it's suppose to do, sell the product and make profit. A product that many are talking about, either they like it or they don't. It doesn't matter which, because they both generate greater exposure of the product to the market.

Fear, Doubt and Superstition are 3 of the greatest profit marketing tools used for centuries.

And if you don't agree with what I've written in this reply, something wicked will happen to you before the days end.

Who cares? Satan isn't real.

Musicians always play to the edgy side of the spectrum just to seem cool. If you think Beyonce really believes in Satan, much less worships Satan, then you are just the sort of person who she is trying to offend, because your children will be the ones buying her albums, just to piss you off.
The churches use "Satan" to scare you into obedience, and the musicians use him to sell their songs to your rebellious kids.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

Oddest thing in the world

To think libertarians actually believe any elites believe in any religion except their own power. There is no way any of these people believe in satan, god, jesus, muhammad.... any of that stuff. They Only hold the religion of whatever the majority is so they will be accepted leaders. That's why for a lot in the bible belt they refuse to believe Obama is a christian because they think it is a sign of legitimacy in their eyes as a leader.

No train to Stockholm.


What matters is not what they worship, but what they support. Do they support individual liberty? I'll take a Christian and a Satan worshiper who advocates for the defense of liberty, over either who doesn't.

Is what Beyonce did any different than people in Church who speak in tongues or through the holy ghost? Does Beyone's God cast her to hell if she does not worship or submit to it's will?

The irony of the video becomes more obvious at the end when we're told we must bow down to a tyrannical God or fall forever. That's not a good, and benevolent God. That's a cruel, evil and tyrannical God who grants you no free will or liberty.

In the end, I put liberty and free will above all else. I know nothing about Beyonce or her faith/beliefs. But I saw nothing in her performance that suggested she supported violating individual liberty - rather it seems to almost uphold the notion of individual sovereignty, with it's anti-establishment ritual meant to offend those who worship conformity, and instead she dares demand a worship of individual freedom and expression.

In short, there's no desire in her performance to disarm us. There's no suggestion of war or welfare. So what's the threat exactly? Please don't say sexual.

Take God out of the schools,

take God out of the courts, and take God out of our mass communications, and what do you have?

Satan rushing in to fill the voids.

Your mama didn't raise you that way, beyonce. Don't let jay-z take your soul.

Is it worth the money? Is it worth the fame and glory to sell your soul like this and take the people with you?

I can tell you from where I am sitting, it is NOT!

Life is not so bad out here in the real, working world. Life is long, here. The peace that passes all understanding will sustain us in our old age.

I am afraid you are just a sacrifice waiting to be made.

jay-z will find another little girl after you are gone.

Wake up, before it is too late.

9/11 Truth.

When you admit that you are a Satanist..

you are only affirming that you deserve the right to be self-serving.

Those that are actively opposed to that concept are not liberty followers.

You can object, of course..but don't be actively opposed.

Love thy enemy.

Of course its not just being self-serving.

You can do that without putting a black cape on in your basement. But you need a black cape to be a good satanist (or whatever fetish of choice). I prefer a christian to a satanist. If youre going to ritualize your interest in myths you might as well pick a prosocial one. You might make some nice friends you can take home to your parents.

No, the creed of this kind of

No, the creed of this kind of satanism is "Do what thou wilt", there is no regard for the liberty of others, only for the will of the self. The non-aggression principle does not apply.

the problem is that satanism

the problem is that satanism has a goal of ruling the world. Something that most people do not understand. Satanism is anti Liberty. I am against those who oppose Liberty.

Christianity has a goal of ruling the world

Islam has a goal of ruling the world.
Dont know about the rest.

If you disagree with me, then

what is it that you disagree with?

Love thy enemy.

Please elaborate, Rebelucion...

I don't fully understand your remark.


I think I agree but I don't fully understand.

9/11 Truth.

Well, I have a friend that admits that he is Satanist...

he is, also, someone who voted for Ron Paul.

Satanists don't necessarily worship Satan. The way I understand it..

They appreciate the way that Satan went against the grain, in the stories.

They don't believe that there is a "Satan", but that the idea of straying from the status quo is appropriate when it benefits yourself.

They believe that you don't have to accept that you are responsible for someone else if you don't have that obligation. For example, if you didn't contribute to giving birth to that child, then you shouldn't have to pay for it.

If you don't care about something or someone, that is not directly something you are responsible for, then you have a right to blow it off.

Satanism is very much a capitalistic and libertarian ideology.

Love thy enemy.

I think you are confusing satanism...

with the virtue of selfishness.

There is good and there is evil. They are completely different from a self-serving attitude.

9/11 Truth.

The problem is...

...that shaking your fist at the ultimate Light, Love, and Truth and insisting on leaving it will only bring you into darkness, hatred and lies; and that benefits no one, not even the self, in the long run. The most self-affirming act is also the act most affirming of others: embracing the Light, Love and Truth. Those who follow in the footsteps of Lucifer will soon discover this the hard way.

Of course, for those who don't believe in this Love stuff, they're really at root nihilists, and in that view nothing really matters in the end anyway--it's all just an absurd illusion with no meaning. That view, I believe, can be dangerous to Liberty, as it can lead to the justification of atrocities as just a rearrangement of matter and energy, ultimately no better or worse than any other arrangement, since there is no real meaning, no true, fundamental Love, Person, etc. Theists, atheists and 'Satanists' can all be authoritarians. Some will use God as an excuse for it; others will use 'no God' as an excuse for it; others will use 'self is all important' as the excuse for it.

I believe the only lasting Liberty can be found resting on true Love as its source and foundation. Those who deny Love's supremacy rather than affirm it seem to me to be more at risk of devolving into authoritarians of one stripe or another.
