Christian Press files this report from the MTV music awards, which describes how Jack Black leads the audience in a prayer to Satan.
"I was mortified when Jack Black lead everyone in a prayer to Satan. It was no joke." said Samantha Taylor of California. "The audience held hands and did it."
Jack Black is definitely no friend of Christians, as has been seen from his previous antics. In fact, he is one of the many Hollywood stars who think it fit to insult and belittle Christians. So what can be said about this "prayer"?
There are several answers to as to what his motive was. He could have meant it as a joke. He could have been semi-serious, meaning to offend Christians while not really believing in Satan, of course. Or he could have been 100% serious calling on the devil for help, and getting the audience to join in.
Regardless of his motive, his behavior is typical of what we see from Hollywood. It is no longer "edgy" to propagate casual sex, meaningless murder or homosexual homes. Those things are so embedded in our culture that no-one barely notices any more.
Christians and Christianity are the new targets, lead by blasphemy on almost every TV show and in every movie. And let's be clear, targeting Christians means targeting God.
The joke may very well be on Black. His pathetic attempts to ridicule Christianity may buy him some support and adoration from his equally perverted colleagues, but for the rest of us he remains a sad example of what happens when man is corrupted. His actions serve as encouragement for the non-intellectuals, as fun for the shallow and as praiseworthy for the kindergarten atheist movement.
The really sad part is that many young people watch that nonsense and learn to imitate such stupidity without realizing that actions hold consequences, and lead our country down a road of moral ineptitude and spiritual bankruptcy. Unfortunately people like Black has a pulpit from which to spout their arrogant ignorance, and while most Christians remain blissfully unaware or apathetically tolerant, it will continue.
