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...

Never ran into one that was really Christian. Lots of satanic symbology abounded in ‘67-’68.

<I’m 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? : )

“Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults or practiced Satan worship.””

Not what the headline says

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.

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.

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.

It is totally an attempt to be one with satan and the material creation. LOads of the musicians of the time were into it.

Standard proceedure for leftist “journalists.” They know that few actually read the articles, so the falsehood in the Headline is what becomes the “truth.”

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”

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.

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.

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.’

Hyberbolic BS makes you less credible when telling the truth, and that is exactly what this is...

I agree, but hyperbolic? Perhaps. BS? No. Since I cannot attest to the level of hyperbole not having read the textbook, I just have to point out that it is Mother Jones. They don't come much further left or conversant in their own brand of ridiculously overblown tripe than that.

Hippies were something I saw on TV as a little kid and that was later on anyway. The "Summer of Love" image that was presented is just as much exaggerated as this textbook is being painted as being. This is a classic case of the need for for actual teachers and not the indoctrination commissars that are being pumped out.

My next-door neighbor did the commune, hippie, drug culture, free love, etc. etc. thing. You would be hard pressed to find someone more adamantly opposed to it and yes, everything listed in that article we have talked about, and more.

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.

Thanks Responsibility2nd.
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.
