Two thumbs up.
It wasn’t a “blanket” accusation, and it is accurate.
I’m not sure those rock musicians really worshiped Satan. They might have pretended to on stage in order to project some kind of pathetic ‘bad boy’ image to try and look all cool and rebellious, but I doubt they actually did.
These people are/were pathetic, and deserve to be seen as such. Actually suggesting that they really did worship Satan as his dedicated acolytes is giving them a mystique that they don’t really warrant IMHO...
>> “What about the hippies that were Christians?” <<
Never ran into one that was really Christian. Lots of satanic symbology abounded in ‘67-’68.
<Im more offended by the blanket accusations against Rock musicians.
Hee hee. : ) I was a hippie. I wore unconventional clothes - if the only standard of clothing was the 1950’s. Styles change; I actually wore very typical clothing for the time. I bathed. I listened to rock and roll. Yeah, I smoked dope, but it didn’t stop me from getting a degree (several of them) and becoming a productive member of society. While I was a socialist at one point, I’m a good conservative now, and raised a conservative child. People change.
When you make broad brush statements like this - especially when they can be refuted by people who actually lived through the time period - people are less likely to believe you are every telling the truth.
And slander rock and roll?! What are these people thinking? : )
Get a grip, there was nothing hyperbolic about the statement.
“Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults or practiced Satan worship.”
Not what the headline says
>> “ I dont think most rock musicians from the Hippie era worshiped Eastern religions or Satan.” <<
The word was “many,” not most, and the statement was quite accurate.
First off, real hippies were less than five percent of the under thirties in the sixties. Maybe about one or two percent. Large mags tried to make out like every kid back then was a hippie. I grew up in those times, and I didn’t know one hippie. And no, I didn’t live in Nome, Alaska. The reality was quite different. And I seriously doubt one percent of hippies were into Satanism. Hippies loved drugs, sex, and music not necessarily in that order.
They didn’t worship anything from what I saw. They liked having a good time - Sex, drugs and rock and roll. that sort of thing
Yes, that statement was hyperbolic. However, as it has turned out, the title to that article was somewhat misleading...
Oh good grief! Don't believe that bs please. I read plenty of hippie literature back in those days, and Satan was not on their minds. The average hippie wasn't thinking about much beyond sex, drugs, and rock and roll.
sex, drugs, and rock and roll.
>> “Hippies I knew didnt worship satan” <<
They worshiped humanity mostly, and that is the same thing.
I was there, played clubs at Northbeach in ‘66-’67, and all the owners wanted satanic crap, and if you didn’t give it to them your gig was over. The more satanic you looked, the more they would pay.
And let’s not forget about the Manson family cult types. Witchcraft and Satanism was considered “cool, dude” back then.
Imagine their surprise to grow up and discover that it was just stuckonstupid, typical leftie behavior....lol.
Yes, it did help me understand you.
>> “Im not sure those rock musicians really worshiped Satan.” <<
Do you understand TM?
It is totally an attempt to be one with satan and the material creation. LOads of the musicians of the time were into it.
>> “Not what the headline says” <<
Standard proceedure for leftist “journalists.” They know that few actually read the articles, so the falsehood in the Headline is what becomes the “truth.”
>> “However, as it has turned out, the title to that article was somewhat misleading” <<
Were you surprised?
How is this wrong?
Okay, maybe they did not KNOW they were worshipping Satan. They worshipped their bodies, their lusts and their vices at the same time they hated everything decent in society.
Same thing, even if they never used the word “Satan”
Really? This wasn’t just some kind of marketing gimmick or stage persona? I’m genuinely asking.
I would say that the majority of the “San Francisco” style bands were very much into TM, and it ruined their lives in most cases. Moby Grape, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, and lots more took a dive into a black hole forever.
A lot of hippies used Jesus as cover for the same crap all the other hippies were doing. Very little was Christian about them. Reminds me of the idjits wearing Che shirts, hippies with a Jesus shirt doesn’t make them Christian.
That was funny - thanks for the laffs
Another thing that you know nothing about, I get the impression that you are pretty young.
I just looked up TM, or Transcendental Meditation, looks like it is some kind of New Age Indian spiritual BS, not quite the same thing as actual Satan worship.
>> “More the first than the second, I suspect” <<
Sherman ol’ boy, the two are one and the same.
If it is not for Yeshua, it is fulfilling the adversary’s plan.
I’m not that young. I fail to see how stereotypical hippies could be anything like Christians
Everything “New Age Indian spiritual BS” is absolutely of the adversary.
I got to see lots of people that at one time were functional melt into nothingness through TM. TM is a gateway to the “second death.”
By 1971 more of the gang I knew were dead than were alive.
A little fill-in.
The “mantras” that the Maharaja Mayhesh handed out were the Hindi names of fallen ‘Angels.’
OMG.... La. Dept of Education must have been caught playing Led Zeppelin records backwards again.
exactly why Satan thanks them
Asshole alert.......Hippies were people who came to Greenwich Village to see and be like the beatnik generation that went before them....and that is a fact. period.
No they did not worship anything. They were agnostics. They were sinners. as are you and me. The hippies had no use for satan or God. You are full of crap as always.
Just a misdirected victim in his case.
How many nights did you spend in the panhandle?
No, Hippies went to GG park.
I had no use for hippies back in the day and I am not defending them. However I would not single out hippies when it comes to the sin department. There are sinners everywhere and they fill churches as well. It’s as if some do not understand the difference between agnostics and satan worshipers.
I didn’t single out hippies, we are all sinners of course.
That is your view of something from a distance.
I’m not trying to hurt your feelings.
Pastor? Is that you?
They went to Canada or European countries to escape being drafted into military services. Many young people turned to drugs and immoral lifestyles; these youth became known as hippies. They went without bathing, wore dirty, ragged, unconventional clothing, and deliberately broke all codes of politeness or manners. Rock music played an important part in the hippie movement and had great influence over the hippies. Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults or practiced Satan worship.
