  • I remember Bishop Williamson telling us in the seminary that the "rockers" know there is something wrong in the world today.

    But because they are not traditional Catholics, they can't see the big picture.

    The following lyrics are from a song by Aerosmith: A bunch of drug-induced, womanizing, blackened souls...yet they see more of the real state of the world than most Conciliarists.

    How close (at least intellectually) they come to explicit knowledge of the doctrine of original sin and the need for grace!

    Lyrics to "Livin' On The Edge"


    There's somethin' wrong with the world today
    I don't know what it is
    Something's wrong with our eyes

    We're seein' things in a different way
    And God knows it ain't his
    It shore ain't no surprise

    Livin' on the edge
    Livin' on the edge
    Livin' on the edge
    Livin' on the edge

    There's somethin' wrong with the world today
    The light bulb's gettin dim
    There's meltdown in the sky

    If you can judge a wise man
    By the color of his skin
    Then mister you're a better man than I

    [Chorus:]
    Livin' on the edge
    You can't help yourself from fallin'
    Livin' on the edge
    You can't help yourself at all
    Livin' on the edge
    You can't stop yourself from fallin'
    Livin' on the edge

    Tell me what you think about your sit-u-a-tion
    Complication - aggravation
    Is getting to you

    If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin'
    Even if it wasn't would you still come crawlin'
    Back again
    I bet you would my friend
    Again & again & again & again & again

    Tell me what you think about your sit-u-a-tion
    Complication - aggravation
    Is getting to you

    If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin'
    Even if it was would you still come crawlin'
    Back again
    I bet you would my friend
    Again & again & again & again

    Something right with the world today
    And everybody knows it's wrong
    But we can tell 'em no or we could let it go
    But I'd would rather be a hanging on
    [Chorus]

    Livin' on the edge
    Livin' on the edge
    Livin' on the edge
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    [Chorus]

    Livin' on the edge
    You can't help yourself
    You can't help yourself
    Livin' on the edge
    You can't help yourself at all
    Livin' on the edge
    You can't help yourself
    You can't help yourself
    Livin' on the edge
    You can't help yourself
    You can't help yourself
    Livin' on the edge
    You can't help yourself from fallin'

    Romans 5:20 "But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more."

    -I retract any and all statements I have made that are incongruent with the True Faith, and apologize for ever having made them-

     :dancing-banana:
    Look around!  Most traditional Catholics WON'T see the big picture.  They've slipped into Fiftiesism whether they were alive to recall it or not.

    Another case of "the children of this world...wiser than the children of the Light."
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

    Rock and Roll: A deadly Revolution

    By Father Richard Williamson
    September 1985


    "THE EXPERIENCE of being with fourteen thousand teenagers to see the Beatles is unbelievable and frightening and, believe me, it is not at all funny, as I first thought when I accepted this assignment. The hysteria and loss of control go far beyond the impact of the music. Many of those present became frantic, hostile, uncontrolled, screaming unrecognizable beings. If this is possible - and it is - parents and adults have a lot to account for to allow this to go on.

    "This is not simply a release, as I first thought it would be, but a very destructive process in which adults allowed the children to be involved - allowing the children a mad, erotic world of their own without the reassuring safeguards of protection from themselves. The externals are terrifying. Normally recognizable girls behaved as if possessed by some demonic urge, defying in emotional ecstasy the restraints which authorities try to place on them. The hysteria is from the girls and when you ask them what it is all about, all they can say is, 'I love them.'

    "There are a lot of things you can say about why the Beatles attract the teenage crowd. The music is loud, primitive, insistent, strongly rhythmic, and releases in a disguised way (can it be called sublimation?) the all too tenuously controlled, new-acquired physical impulses of the teenager. Mix this up with the phenomena of mass hypnosis, contagious hysteria and the blissful feeling of being mixed up in an all-embracing orgiastic experience and every kid can become "Lord of the Flies," or the Beatles.

    "Why do kids scream, faint, gyrate, and in general, look like a primeval, protoplasmic upheaval and go into ecstatic convulsions when certain identifiable and expected trademarks come forth, such as "Oh, yeah!" a twist of the hips or the thrusting out of an electric guitar?

    "Regardless of the causes or reasons for the behavior of these youngsters, it had the impact of an unholy bedlam, the like of which I have never seen. It caused me to feel that such should not be allowed again, if only for the good of the youngsters. It was an orgy for teenagers."


    This eyewitness account of a rock concert comes from a certain Dr. Bernard Saibel, child guidance expert for the Washington State Division of Community Services in the Western United States. It was as long ago as 1964 that this Beatle concert took place, which a Seattle newspaper asked him to attend!

    The report he made is quoted on pages 56 and 57 of a most interesting book in English, by a Protestant college professor, Davie Noebel. It is called The Marxist Minstrels, subtitled "A Handbook on Communist Subversion of Music." The book contains a thousand other testimonies, with documents and references to back them up, on the devastating effects of rock music.

    There would in fact be many interesting things to say about rock music, which is at one and the same time a manifestation and a cause of the present decadence of western youth and civilization. The conductor Léon Bernstein said in 1967, "We must take rock-and-roll music as both a symptom and generator of this revolution," meaning the revolution of the young generation today. (Quoted in Rock-and-Roll, The Devil's Diversion, by Bob Larsen, 1967, McCook, Nebraska, p. 116.)

    Amongst all the interesting things to say about rock-and-roll, that is undoubtedly the most important. Rock comes from revolt. It leads to revolt. It is to be judged and to be treated like a revolt, negatively by repressing the disorder, positively - and that is more important-by restoring order. Firstly then,


    Rock comes from Revolt

    It is worth reading in The Marxist Minstrels of the wide variety of Communists and Jews (always the spiritual spearhead of Communists) who, from the end of the Second World War onwards, clearly had in view to exploit the moral power of music in order to corrupt the morals of the West and of America in particular. See likewise Rock-and-Roll, Pere Regimbal, 1983, Editions St. Raphael, 31 King Street West, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada J1H IN5, page 28, an introductory documentation on the rock production studios being steadily financed by the sect of the Illuminati. Not that these habitual enemies of Christ are responsible for our free decisions to follow them, but finding these revolutionaries behind rock music helps us considerably to locate what rock music is.

    Those are just a few indications as to the people behind rock music. Now let us listen to the rock musicians themselves.

    "Rock is more than just music, it is the center of energy of a new culture and a youth in revolt" (Rolling Stones, RR, p. 18).

    "I feel spiritual up there [performing]. Think of us as erotic politicians. I'm interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos, especially activity that has no meaning" (Jim Morrison, DD, p. 40).

    "Our real followers ... are the hippies ... all of them think like us and are questioning some of the basic immoralities tolerated in present-day society - the war in Viet Nam, illegality of abortion, persecution of homosexuals" (Keith Richard, one of the "Rolling Stones," DD, p. 39).

    "We probably seem to be anti-religious because of the fact that none of us believes in God" (Paul McCartney, one of the Beatles, DD, p. 36).

    "Christianity will disappear. Already we are more popular than Jesus Christ" (John Lennon, the Beatles, RR, p. 21).

    "I resent the implication that the Rolling Stones are like revolutionaries and that the Beatles weren't. If the Stones were or are, the Beatles really were too" (John Lennon, MM, p. 112).

    "Rock music is sex and you have to hit the teenagers in the face with it. I entice my audience. What I do is very much the same as a girl's strip-tease dance" (Mick Jagger, leader of the "Rolling Stones," DD, p. 38).

    * * *

    All of this was summed up by an American anarchist writer, Jerry Rubin, in his best seller, Do It, which is like a second Communist Manifesto:
    Rock-and-roll marked the beginning of the revolution ... we see sex, rock-and-roll and dope as part of a Communist plot to take over America ... we have combined youth, music, sex, drugs and rebellion with treason - and that's a combination hard to beat.

    Elvis Presley woke up our bodies, changing them altogether. The hard animal Rock whose secret lies in its energetic beat, penetrated warmly inside our bodies; the pounding rhythm roused all the suppressed and held-back passions. The back seat of a car was the theater of the sexual revolution while the car's radio served as a medium for subversion. Rock marked the beginning of the revolution. We have fused together a new political life with a psychedelic style of life. Our way of living, our acid [=drugs], our freaky clothing, our rock music, that is the true revolution (RR, pp. 18-19).


    Rock Music leads to Revolt

    Next, rock music breathes revolt through every pore, by what it is in itself. It pushes to revolt by its words firstly and then by the musical means which it sets to work to drive home its message into the consciousness or the subconscious of its audience. "We are all the time working to direct the thoughts and wills of people, and most of the groups are doing the same" (Mick Jagger, RR, p. 18).

    Rock music could be defined as a kind of popular music characterized by the combination of ancient savage rhythms originating from Africa with modern western electric instruments. Popular it certainly is throughout the entire world, especially amongst young people. "According to an American inquiry in 1981, 87% of all adolescents spend between three to five hours a day listening to rock music. Since the coming of the walk-man, they spend seven to eight hours. In one single year, 90% of all discs sold throughout the world were discs of rock (130 million per year), not including 100 million rock albums," says Pere Regimbal. And "rock-and roll can now be heard as a matter of course in Paris, Rome, Warsaw, Ankara, Calcutta, Saigon, Rio, Buenos Aires, Lima or Havana," says the magazine "Senior Scholastics," DD, p. 88. It's obvious!

    What then is rock's message? The words and the accompanying music will tell us. Now it is true that for rock, as for any sung music, the listener is much more taken by the song than by the words being sung which may even escape him altogether, as is often the case, for instance, with Gregorian Chant. Nevertheless, for music in general, the words show what the musician was inspired by, and that inspiration will have fixed his choice of musical means, hence the importance of the words in order to grasp the meaning of the music; and then for rock in particular, let no one think that the youngsters do not understand the lyrics with two or even three meanings - "The kids can understand them" (MM, p. 68).

    Let us then begin with the words - what do rock lyrics say? Firstly, they push sex and impurity in all its forms continuously, more or less openly - for a series of examples, see The Devil's Diversion, pp. 24-30 and since that book was written the examples have got far worse. Next, the lyrics likewise push drugs. For examples, see The Devil's Diversion, pp. 30-35, The Marxist Minstrels, pp. 72-73, where Dr. Noebel gives a list of fifty or so rock songs encouraging the taking of drugs in terms more or less veiled or in an ambiguous slang, but which is perfectly clear to the youngsters.

    Next, the lyrics push anarchy, communism and anti-christianity. "We must go down into the streets, now is the time for violent revolution" (Rolling Stones, MM, p. 215). "You don't know how lucky you are, boy, back in the USSR" (the Beatles, MM, p. 67).

    And here is a description of the Beatles in 1964 by a Derrick Taylor: "They're completely anti-Christ. I mean, I am anti-Christ as well, but they're so anti-Christ they shock me, which isn't an easy thing" (MM, p. 101). The rock musical "Jesus Christ Superstar" is a tissue of blasphemies against Our Lord, Our Lady and the saints of the Gospels (MM, p. 243, 245).

    Finally, let us indicate occultism and satanism as being pushed by rock lyrics. Amongst another wealth of examples, here are a few: The Rolling Stones "baptize" one of their albums "at the request of their satanic majesty." On the sleeve they pose as witches. One of their songs, "Sympathy for Satan," is the national anthem of Satanists. On another of their discs can be heard the cries of voodoo possessed recorded at Haiti. The musicians of the group, KISS (Knights in the Service of Satan), present themselves in the clothing and with faces of devils, and in "The God of Thunder," they sing to the god of thunder as the god of rock-and-roll (RR, p. 22). The group, AC/DC (Antichrist/Death to Christ), in "Hell's Bells" sings: "I've got my bells and I'm gonna take you to hell. I'm gonna getcha! Satan getcha! Hell's bells, yeah! Hell's bells!" (RR, p. 23).

    In addition to these direct messages of Satan, there are also hidden in some of the best-known rock songs backward, masked messages, that is to say, words which you can only hear when you play backwards a recording of the song! Fr. Regimbal gives several examples in his little brochure, "Rock-and-Roll," pp. 19-22. Order the cassette of the lecture of Fr. Regimbal on rock-and-roll in order to hear with your own ears this strange music without words which, however, played backwards becomes a series of perfectly comprehensible words in English. For example, in "Revolution No. 9," of the Beatles, "Turn me on, dead man," ... the meaning is too obscene and blasphemous to write down here; in the album "Killers" of the group, Queen, "Start to smoke marijuana"; in "When Electricity Comes to Arkansas," of the group, Black Rock Arkansas, "Satan ... Satan ... Satan. He is god, he is god, he is god," and the message ends in a crazy laughing. In the most popular rock song of all, "Stairway to Heaven," by the group Led Zeppelin, the seemingly innocent words have in fact an occult and sinister meaning throughout the song, as deciphered by Fr. Regimbal, and at certain moments there is a backward-masked message also. For instance, when one hears in the normal way, "There's a feeling I get when I look to the West," the occult meaning of that is the feeling of bewitchment of the disoriented person, disoriented meaning turned away from the Orient, which in the prophet Zachary refers to the Messiah, and turned instead towards Lucifer who shines in the West, and at this same point, when the tape is played backwards, there can clearly be heard, "I've got to live for Satan" (RR, p. 20).

    Truly, rock music, as judged by the words being sung, is not just an innocent past-time, amusing the young. It is Satan himself who is calling the tune, the Luciferian Pied Piper of Hamlin!

    What then are the musical means which he sets to work in rock music? There are various kinds of rock music, but always, always, the pounding beat. The first rock music (called soft rock), began in the early fifties when white musicians set about accentuating the rhythm of various kinds of black music from the southern United States - "Rhythem," "Blues," and "Soul." Indeed in 1952 a Communist subversive in the United States, Sidney Finkelstein, wrote that the "chauvinist barrier between classical music and popular music should be smashed by inundating the American public with the 'music of the Negro people'." The ancestors of these blacks from the south had brought from Africa the tribal music of the voodoo rites in which an incessant pounding rhythm with strong syncopations brings the native dancers to a state of hypnotic monotony in which they lose consciousness and self-mastery, and in which then voodoo can enter into them, pushing them into sexual atrocities (DD, p. 130). What despair for the Christian missionaries from the West when they find back at home exactly the same frenzies in dancing which they strive to combat in the African tribes where they work (DD, p. 134)! In the Far East, Bob Larsen has picked up exactly the same correlation between pounding music and sensual gesticulations, reaching even trances and demonic possession (DD, pp. 135-136). Thus, the American composer, Dmitri Tiomkin, said in 1965, "In our popular music at least, we seem to be reverting to savagery ... More to the point is the fact that youngsters who listen constantly to this sort of sound are thrust into turmoil. They are no longer relaxed normal kids."

    But how does a strongly rhythmic music obtain such effects? It was said above that rock music could be defined as a music which combines ancient African rhythms with instruments of modern technology. What rock musicians bring to the African rhythms to plunge the entire world into a wild ocean of sound is precisely the panoply of modern technology.

    Modern technology serving the beat is what determines, first of all, the instruments of the average rock group, consisting ever since the Beatles in a quartet: two guitars, a bass guitar, and drums. The guitar is the basic instrument, firstly on account of its rhythmic character, but the classical guitar has been transformed into the metallic electric guitar attached to loudspeakers which makes a mechanical and much louder sound. The bass guitar is likewise amplified by one or two powerful loudspeakers, to such a point that a listener standing close by can feel the whole insides of his body vibrating (DD, p. 79). The basic rhythm is provided by the drums, to which likewise are attached synthesizers, like electronic organs. The drummer and his rhythm play such an important role that drum solos can last anything up to a quarter of an hour in a rock concert. Moreover, the electricity serves not only to amplify but also to distort the sound, creating Larsen effects, or "wah-wah pedals." Truly, without electricity there would be no rock. This tells us its artificial and extremist character, everything designed to blow the fuses of the nerves. This absolute need of a superactive relaxation is surely the counterpart of the super-passive modern televisual and suburban life. Hence, rock comes most naturally to the countries farthest advanced in industrialism and suburbanism, the United States and the United Kingdom.

    As for the other main elements in music - harmony and melody - certain rock artists are not lacking in talent. For example, the Beatles in some of their pieces show a true musical art. But rock in no way values these elements or this art, because they involve too much the superior and spiritual part of the soul. Thus, jazz has a melodic interest, but rock has none or only a little. What counts is the animal beat. As a rock musician, Frank Zapper of the Led Zeppelin, said: "I realize that this music got through to the youngsters because the big beat matched the great rhythms of the human body and I further knew that they would carry this beat of rock-and-roll with them the rest of their lives" (DD, P. 61).

    Indeed, within the human body there are several life rhythms, the beating of the heart, the undulations of the brain, the breathing of the lungs, the walking of the feet. Now, the fact that music can affect animals, deaf-mutes, the mentally weak and even plants (yes! - MM, pp. 118-120), proves that it has a physical effect on bodies, independently of the reason. Music is dynomogenic, that is to say, it plays powerfully on the activity of the muscles by causing, for example, an often involuntary movement which it requires a conscious effort to stop. Now if the singing tenor's sustained note coincides with the wavelength of wine glasses, it can make them vibrate until they are smashed; likewise the marching in step of a platoon of soldiers, if it coincides with the rhythms of a suspension bridge, can pull the bridge down. If then, the rhythm of the music were to engage the rhythms of the body, why should not the music be able, as it were, to break something within the body?

    "By carefully controlling the sequence of rhythms," said John Philips of the group, Mamas and Papas, "one can introduce hysteria in one's audience. We know how to do it, anybody knows how to do it." And to prove it, they caused, at their next concert, a riot in Phoenix (MM, p. 69)! "We know what we are because we know what we're doing ... There were very few things that happened to the Beatles that weren't well thought out by us, whether to do it or not," said John Lennon (The Legacy of John Lennon, David A. Noebel, Nelson, New York, 1982, p. 28).

    By way of example of a medical analysis of the process by which rhythm might, as it were, break down the body, doctors point out that the autonomic nervous system of the human body bathes in a cerebrospinal liquid which has a rhythm directed partly by the pituitary gland, the master gland of the body. This gland influences almost all the vital processes of the body, directing for example the secretion of the hormones of the endocrine glands (DD, p. 78, 79). If then, the pituitary gland were let loose by the physical vibrations of the beat, the whole nervous system would be unhinged, hence an abnormal secretion of the sexual hormones, which would explain the erotic movements in rock dances. "Rhythmic music and dancing are ways of getting at the nervous system. I will show some movies demonstrating how the primitive rhythms of a stone-age tribe in Kenya and a band at a London ball produced the same trance-like emotions," said Dr. Wm. Sargent to the Royal Society of Medicine in London (MM, p. 55).

    Furthermore, the beat, by stimulating the secretion of the hormone epinephrine, diminishes in the blood the ionic calcium which is of major importance for directing the nervous system, and the sugar, which is the only nourishment of the brain. Hence the exhausted nerves and the unhinged brain following on a rock concert. This powerful stimulation of the sensuality, together with the depression of the intelligence and reason, ends up in eroticism and violence. And this suicide of the reason leads to suicide quite simply. Many different doctors recognize the same effects of rock on human beings: frustration, loss of self-control, diminishing of the intelligence and will, going as far as euphoria, hysteria, hallucination, hypnosis, depression, neurosis, and psychosis, terminating in violence directed either against others in almost irresistible impulses of destruction and vandalism and rioting, or against oneself in self-punishment, self-mutilation and self-immolation, together with a grave increase in tendencies to suicide (RR, p. 34). Rock songs actually promote suicide, for instance "Goodbye, cruel world." Among the causes of death of youngsters in the United States today, suicide is number two, next after road accidents, but be careful, many of these accidents could be masking suicide! By their liberalism, the parents are committing the suicide of their God-given reason. The punishment is logical. The children commit, often starting out from rock music, suicide quite simply.


    Rock is to be judged like a Revolt

    A revolt is to be judged by its causes and by its fruits. For instance, the revolt of the Spanish Catholics against Communism in power in 1936 in Spain, was absolutely justified both in its causes and in its fruits. Now the fruits of rock-and-roll are absolutely rotten. Most of the documentation of this article has been drawn from two relatively old books by Larsen and Noebel, dating from 1970 and 1974 respectively. The very useful brochure of Fr. Regimbal dates from 1983, which enables him to document nine further years of rottenness. But even in the two years which have unfolded since then, 1983 to 1985, the rottenness has advanced with giant strides. Take, for instance, MTV and the rock video cassettes which are clearly satanic. Rock is a whole world of muck, filth and satanism, of which the average reader has no idea until he has checked a little for himself. Music is a serious affair having a great power over morals. Only the liberals deny it, thus leaving the field wide open to Satan. Rock music is not just an innocent pastime, good to amuse the children if that's what they like; rock music is the outstanding instrument of Satan to set youngsters on the road to hell and to keep them there for the rest of their lives and for all their eternity. No use objecting that rock is not always wild, it is not always filthy - the master of the dance remains always Satan, who asks no better than to get the youngsters little by little into this whole world of rock. When judged by its fruits, rock deserves a most severe condemnation.

    However, if we consider it in its causes, our judgment must be more complicated. Certainly, the revolt of rock lines up with original sin and exploits it, and by making listeners throw off all restraint, it pushes them into a thousand personal sins of which the young, for example, are fully conscious and for which they are responsible. But who made them this materialistic world, Godless, faithless, lawless, supersensual, supercommercial, against which the rock singers are revolting? Alice Cooper, who took the name of a witch when he consecrated himself to Satan (RR, p. 46), tears chickens and dolls to pieces on the stage and then throws the pieces out into the crowd because "all the audience wants is sex and violence. I know because I used to watch television all day" (LJL, p. 98). Alas, rock reflects all too faithfully the abortion society which it comes out of. Our society does without God, rock mocks Him! Our society has no love of country, rock turns to Communism; our society aborts its children, neglects the family, rock will snatch away even the children it has and will assassinate them; our commercial and televisual society delights in sex and violence, rock wallows in sex and violence, to rot the youth with them. "I figured the only thing to do was to swipe their kids ... by saying that, I'm not talking about kidnapping, I'm just talking about changing their value systems, which removes them from their parents' world very effectively," said rock singer, David Crosby (LJL, p. 85). Parents! is it difficult to get through to your children? That's because you are up against Pied Pipers of Hamlin who know what they are doing, who may not however know that they are the instruments of the punishment of the Good Lord to Whom your generation has refused to render what was due to Him!


    Rock should be treated like a Revolt

    A revolt is to be treated by the repression of all disorder and by the restoration of order, so that the same causes will not continue to produce the same effects. Now, the disorder of rock is so unbearable for moral health by its message and by its beat that any wise family father will absolutely suppress it in his family. Fathers and mothers! Check what your children are listening to! Don't let them do what they like! Give them neither money nor discs nor record player nor television nor walk-man nor guitar nor drums with which they may do as they wish! And do not say that it's too late. It's your turn to protest! If your children are already caught up in rock, get to realize how evil it is, inform yourselves, pray God and the Blessed Virgin for the souls of your children which are at stake, and then give battle to Satan, give battle with Satan for those souls! Will your children resist? Then show that you too, but you above all, have convictions! It is precisely these Catholic convictions that the rock generation has such a desperate need of! And then play the man, Dad, the man of God. Do not give up, for the love of the souls of your children, do not give up. And if, with the help of God, you win your child over, make him himself break his own discs or cassettes, for example. It is an important physical gesture, even decisive, says Bob Larsen, in order to break the spell of rock music (DD, p. 149).

    And what should be done positively to get at the deep causes of rock? We must convert! Let us adults live like true Catholics, let us demonstrate through our concrete example the truth and the beauty of Him, Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Let us renounce our materialism, our soft comfort, let us love our country, let us throw out the television set, let us genuinely flee this whole display of filth and immodesty! If necessary, let us go and live in the country, that the children may put two feet down to earth again, God's earth beneath God's heaven, and for the love of God. And were that not possible, then let us at least strive to cultivate in the home a love of healthy and good music, because youth needs a song as it needs a flag and an ideal, and this healthy song will contribute powerfully to form healthy morals. Satan has always known it. How could we Catholics ever have forgotten?

    Lyrics of Pink Floyd reveal youths' scream for help

    Dear Friends and Benefactors,

    One gets used to anything, but nevertheless the music of youngsters in modern Western society is the alarm-bell ringing off the wall. In case any readers are comfortably asleep, let them be rudely awoken by a few moments' study of a classic "Rock" album, so that in this month of the Holy Family we can think of what Catholic parents should do.

    The rock album in question, Pink Floyd's The Wall appeared in 1979. It made quite a stir at the time, even achieving a kind of cult status. The Pink Floyd group is still well-known, making concert tours nearly 20 years later, and numbers from The Wall are still played regularly on Rock radio. So The Wall has achieved classic status amongst thirty years' worth of Rock albums.

    What interests us here is the words of the album, which are made available with the Compact Discs. As for the music, it seems to me not wild, although it breaks into a heavy beat at regular intervals. Above all, it serves the words well, which is what one would expect from a "classic" - these musicians have a message, and their music gets it over. As with - from the sublime to the ridiculous - plainchant, polyphony, Wagner or Frank Sinatra, the words inspire the music and the music weds the words.

    That is why, even if it were true that most fans of Pink Floyd (or of Rock in general) listen to the music without caring for the words - I do not believe it is true, but even if it were - still the words are of central importance, because they are what inspired the music that gets to these youngsters. Tell me what music you like, I will tell you who you are. Tell me the words set, I will tell you the music setting.

    Nor may adults excuse themselves from taking seriously the words of, for instance Pink Floyd, on the grounds that these musicians merely make the kind of music that makes lots of money. Of course Rock can make its stars into millionaires, but money is never the ultimate explanation, the question being merely pushed one stage further back -why does this kind of music and not that kind make so much money? Answer, because it is "hitting the spot", it is filling a need.

    Nor may adults dodge the accusation that Rock flings in their face, by saying that skilful managers like Brian Epstein of the Beatles see an opportunity to exploit, and merely create the kind of music to exploit it. For indeed musicians are creators, and all down history they have created new kinds of music. But they do not create in a vacuum. What they create is to a considerable extent shaped by what they sense in their audience. Brian Epstein did not create the Beatles out of whole cloth, but out of the vibrations he was picking up from British youth in the early 1960's, and it is because he read the vibrations correctly that the Beatles achieved such fame and wealth.

    No. If Pink Floyd also achieved fame and wealth, then Western adults, if they care at all for their youth, must pay attention to the message. Surely the message is, precisely, that the adults do not care! "Rock music is one long, unheard, scream for help", readers of this letter were told last June. Let us take a look. We were unable to obtain in time copyright permission to reprint the lyrics of the 27 songs making up The Wall, but here is the message of the first 14 songs, which form like a sequence. (The remaining 13 songs are in similar vein.)

    (1)The artist tells us he has cold eyes which are part of a disguise. He is obviously at war with the world. (2) Sure enough, modern life may look good, but it is as cold and deadly as thin ice. (3) The artist's father disappeared early from his life, leaving only a snapshot behind. (4) The artist's school-teachers were cowardly sadists. (5) His school education was a waste of time (famous lines - "We don't need no education, 'Teachers, leave the kids alone"). (6) He turns to his mother, who promises to comfort him, but as far as he is concerned, her mothering him means her smothering him. (7) The politicians promised a brave new world, but they lied. There is no blue sky. (8) As fear the activities with which most people seek to fill their empty lives, they are a restless waste of time. (9) The artists seeks refuge with any "cold woman" in the "desert land", but in fact (10) the woman he is with means nothing to him. (11) Yet he longs for his girl-friend, but she is running away because, as he freely admits, he only wants her there in order to be cruel to her. (12, 13) In brief, all people around are nothing but bricks in the meaningless build-up of the wall of modern life which alienates and divides people from one another. Conclusion - (14) - this life is good for nothing but to be departed from, a song which has inspired God knows how many young people to take their own lives ("Good-bye, cruel world").

    Adults! Wake up! In Western society suicide has become a leading cause of death amongst youngsters - what do you think that means? That we have a wonderful way of life that in all history no civilization on earth has equaled? What is unequaled in all history is so many youngsters singing and dreaming of suicide! Youngsters!! Suicide!! Adults!! Wake up!! They are crying out!! You have got something desperately wrong!!

    Understand me rightly. I am not saying that the musicians who make up the group Pink Floyd are saints, nor that youngsters who revel in Pink Floyd are faultless while all the fault is on the side of the adults. As a colleague commented, the revolt behind these songs has something satanic about it, for instance when it sees no more in mothering than with smothering (6). No doubt, if these musicians and youngsters think they are only being sinned against and not sinning, they are under a youthful illusion.

    But, again, for oldsters to dismiss their revolt as a mere passing stage which they need to grow into and grow out of as part of modern life, is a serious error which the oldsters will pay for, for instance by being euthanised. The revolt against everybody and everything that is expressed by Pink Floyd is so against nature and so unhappy (eg. 11) that one cannot believe such a mass of youngsters as make stars of Pink Floyd would choose it as a way of life if they had the choice. But the Western materialism inspiring this revolt was chosen for them, by generations and generations of adults that went before them, who, as they grew up, settled for the satisfactions of age-old pride and sensuality made increasingly available by that materialism.

    And no doubt it is true that many Pink Floyders in turn will settle for these ever more available satisfactions (say, coach tours of the North Pole in luxury-heated buses). But woe to them if they do! Nature will not be defeated in this rising war against her. She will take a terrible revenge. She is already taking it, in the suicide rate of the young, but worse is to come. The young are right to protest. There is much more involved in Pink Floyd than just juvenile revolt. Thank Heaven the young are protesting! Their protest is a call from our common human nature which we are violating. Our way of life is rotten. There is a precious spark that is extinguished each time a youngster gives up protesting and joins in building The Wall, or, as Augustine would have said it, helps raise the city of Mammon against God.

    Then what do Catholic parents and adults do? First and foremost, render unto God what is God's. Treating God as though He is of no importance is the heart and soul of the problem. Parents, adore God, love God, give the example of practising the one true religion of the one true God, with all your mind and with all your heart, in the home. Make the presence of God there as natural to souls as oxygen is to the bodies. Pray the family Rosary, with father kneeling in front, or doing whatever he needs to do to be seen leading his family towards God.

    Secondly, parents, concern yourselves with your children. They are your real wealth. God bless you for not having contraceived them or aborted them. But when they are born, your glorious responsibilities are only just starting. Today's world teaches you well how to look after their bodies, but you must take at least as much care of their souls. From the earliest age teach them to pray, teach them to control themselves, to think of Jesus, to make sacrifices, to think of others, to respect and obey you, their parents. They are not in any way your equals.

    Love them, but discipline them. Never discipline without love, but also never love without discipline. Give them always good example. They will watch what you do much more than they will listen to what you say. Give them your time. They are more important than your bank- accounts. One soul, one world, one eternity. Give time especially to adolescents, who are today desperate for adult counsel, guidance, advice. Adults have lost the art of listening to them! That is why they turn to one another and to the Pied Pipers of Rock. And the Grim Reaper reaps a grim harvest!

    Give to your children at all ages instruction. You are their elders. You do know better. Teach them not only their Catholic Faith, but also life. The natural is carrier of the supernatural. No carrier, no carried. Children have to grow up for this world as well as for the next. Teach them a Faith for living and living in the Faith, not some cuitish sentimentality which they will toss out the moment they meet the real world. Teach boys hand-skills, teach girls hand-crafts, because "The devil finds work for idle hands". Let children not just eat and go to Mass. Keep their minds and hearts occupied all day with good things, according to their varied talents, so that the Devil will never find a vacuum waiting to be filled by him.

    Lastly, keep television and the computer to a minimum in the home. The problem is not primarily the filth so easily available on each of these machines, serious though that is, and more than enough reason to ban both. The real problem is that machines cannot teach people to be people. Only living souls can form living souls. Better, for a child, a live reading than a dead video, as such. Better, to learn life, a live farmyard than a dead cupboard of Nintendo games. The subject needs a letter of its own.

    And let us men be men, as You meant us to be, let the dear women be women and let children be children, throughout the New Year, and our nature will be in that much better posture to carry Your sanctifying grace.

    Sincerely yours in his Sacred Heart,
    Romans 5:20 "But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more."

    -I retract any and all statements I have made that are incongruent with the True Faith, and apologize for ever having made them-

  • I think the point of music lyrics like that is to connect with the audience, on something real, but then to run them into the "ditch."  Although, as music like this progresses, it seems to become more and more nonsensical;  it's like rap, lots of random phrases or words that often don't make much sense.  In the end, I think it is just madness.  

    Sadly, we need folk music, I suppose, to express our communities common feelings/experience and to bind us together.  Unfortunately, we seem to lack real communities, since they've been destroyed.  I think there is such a void there, that our cultural rulers try to fill with this junk, but it isn't truly satisfying.

Right before I performed, I raised my hand up, and it was kinda the first time that I felt something else come into me. It’s a transformation when I go on stage. 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. Send me out, Rain man.” - Beyoncé

        “I am very aware that when I write a good song I am just acting like as a messenger. It comes from a higher source. I’m not so egotistical that I think I done this all on my own. I’m very, very aware there is a higher source. I am just the messenger.” - Dave Sabo

        "Dan Reynolds isn’t ashamed to admit he hears ‘things’ others cannot. It has haunted his every walking moment for years. He doesn’t like to talk about it much, but the voices in his head have become his constant companion. And when his inner muse speaks, Reynolds is quick to take notes.” - David Dunn

        “It happens to us quite often—it feels as though I’m not playing my instrument, something else is playing it and that same thing is playing all three of our instruments. That’s what I mean when I say it’s frightening sometimes. Maybe we’ll all play the same phrase out of nowhere. It happens very often with us.” - Ginger Baker

        “I just go crazy when I go on stage … it’s like someone else takes over my body.” - Glen Tipton

        "One cannot help thinking of Hitler as of a medium, the medium is possessed. Without any doubt, Hitler was possessed of forces which were beyond him and of which the individual called Hitler was only the temporary instrument.” - Hermann Rauschning, a friend of Hitler

        “I met the spirit of music. An appearance of the devil, on a Venice canal, running. I saw Satan.” - Jim Morrison

        “I can explain everything better through music. You hypnotize people..and when you get people at their weakest point, you can preach into the subconscious what we want to say. That’s why the name “electric church’ flashes in and out. People want release any kind of way nowadays. The idea is to release in the proper form. Then they’ll feel like going into another world, a clearer world. The music flows from the air (Ephesians 2:2). That’s why I connect with a spirit and when they come down off this natural high, they see clearer, feel different things.” - Jimmy

        “There were beings of higher intelligence controlling what I was doing, and I didn’t know how to talk about it or explain it…it was very clear to me that the music was coming from somewhere other than me.” - John Frusciante

        “It’s like being possessed: like a psychic or a medium. I felt like a hollow temple filled with many spirits, each one passing through me, each inhabiting me for a little time and then leaving to be replaced by another.” - John Lennon
        “One night we were playing and suddenly the spirit entered into me, and I was playing, but it was no longer me playing.” - John McLaughlin

        “The great Initiates in the spirit world have vast and imposing plans for the musical future. What is this plan? It is to use music as an occult medium through which to develop altered states of consciousness, psychic abilities, and contact with the spirit world. Music in the future is to be used to bring people into yet closer touch with the devils; they will be enabled to partake of the beneficial influence of these beings while attending concerts at which by the appropriate type of sound they have been invoked.” - John Todd

        “Sometimes I feel like I’m possessed with a multitude of demons.” - Johnny Depp

        “I have no relation to the lyrical content of my music. I am just a vessel. I realized my father’s sister Joanne, who died at 19 had instilled her spirit in me. I have no relation to the lyrical content of my music. It’s just the vessel. Judas is the demon I cling to. I have this recurring dream where there’s a phantom in my home and he takes me into a room, and there’s a blonde girl with ropes tied to all four of her limbs. And she’s got my shoes on from the Grammys. And the ropes are pulling her apart. I never see her get pulled apart, but I just watch her whimper, and then the phantom says to me, ‘If you want me to stop hurting her and if you want your family to be ok, you will cut your wrist.’ And I think that he has his own, like, crazy wrist-cutting device. And he has this honey in, like, Tupperware, and it looks like sweet-and-sour sauce with a lot of MSG from New York. And he wants me to pour the honey into the wound, and then put cream over it and a gauze. And my mother goes, ‘Isn’t that an Illuminati ritual?’ The devil’s trying to take me. I do have morbid dreams. But I put them in the show. A lot of the work I do is an exorcism for the fans but also for myself.” - Lady Gaga

        “I was directed and commanded by another power. The power of darkness … that a lot of people don’t believe exists. The power of the Devil. Satan.” - Little Richard

        “Sometimes when I’m writing songs, I’m just channeling. I made all the choices I made because I needed to. I obviously needed to tell that story. When you’re an artist and you’re doing something creative, at a certain point, your practical brain shuts off and you’re submitting to something, and you’re channeling something.” - Madonna

        “You can’t describe it except to say it’s like a mysterious energy that comes from the metaphysical plane and into my body. It’s almost like being a medium.” - Marc Storace

        “When I get on stage, I get possessed.” - Meat Loaf

        “I wake up from dreams and go ‘Wow, put this down on paper,’ the whole thing is strange. You hear the words, everything is right there in front of your face. I feel that somewhere, someplace it’s been done and I’m just a courier bringing it into the world. When I hit the stage it’s all of a sudden a ‘magic’ from somewhere that comes and the spirit just hits you, and you just lose control of yourself.” - Michael Jackson

        “Roman is my alter ego. He’s mean. *He says the things I can’t say. ” - Nicki Minaj

        “I tried to empty myself and let the spirit of Sethe inhabit me.” - Oprah Winfrey

        “I’ve got many, many demons that affect me on many, many levels. A few years ago, I was convinced of that – I thought I truly was possessed by the devil. I remember sitting through the Exorcist a dozen times, saying to myself, ‘Yeah, I can relate to that. I really wish I knew why I’ve done some of the things I’ve done over the years. I don’t know if I’m a medium for some outside source. Whatever it is, frankly, I hope it’s not what I think it is - Satan.”” - Ozzy Osbourne

        “A lot of that guitar playing is not me. We figure we got help from something more powerful.” - Peter DiStephano

        “When I am on the stage I am not in control of myself at all. I don’t even know who I am. I am not this rational person where I can sit down and talk to you. If you walked on stage with a microphone in the middle of a concert I’ll probably come close to killing you.” - Pete Townshend

        “You’re part of my entity.” - Rihanna

        “You feel the spirit move you. I can be possessed really well.” - River Phoenix

        “Pagey had written the chords and played them for me. I was holding the paper and pencil, and for some reason, I was in a very bad mood. Then all of a sudden my hand was writing out words. I just sat there and looked at the words and then I almost leaped out of my seat.” - Robert Plant about ‘Stairway to Heaven’

        “Yeah literally it’s like a possession. All of a sudden you’re in. It’s like an energy that keeps going.” - Robert Williams

        “When I went away, I left my body and I could hear other voices. A spiritual message really. It would all just come out, as if I were in a trance. It would scare me to read it because it seemed to belong to another place.” - Roseanne Arnold

        “That certain feeling happened to me in a big way quite often with the first King Crimson. Amazing things would happen—I mean, telepathy, qualities of energy, things that I had never experienced before with music - you can’t tell whether the music is playing the musician or the musician is playing the music.” - Rubert Fipp

        “I simply channeled a character, this time I allowed the character to inhabit me.” - Shirley MacLaine

        “You gotta put the whole spirit in the building.” - Snoop Dogg
        “I started recording what I received in trance or altered states. I ended up being guided.” - Steven Halpern

        “It’s amazing, ’cause sometimes when we’re onstage, I feel like somebody’s just moving the pieces. I’m just going, ‘God, we don’t have any control over this.’ And that’s magic.” - Stevie Nicks

        “I’m a prisoner of a demon, this must be my punishment for selling my soul.” - Suicidal Tendencies

        “There’s this one particular relative who was my age when she died. I have had this feeling she was there guiding me and helping me with my performances.” - Winona Ryder

        “I’m going to do my best to channel the character on a spiritual level.” - Vin Diesel

  • Very refreshing, because it all makes such perfect sense - especially since I happen to be reading Fr. Malachi Martin's Hostage to the Devil at the moment.

    It's interesting that holy angels never possess us - that would be beneath them. We can consecrate ourselves to Jesus through Mary, but we never lose our individuality.
    What return shall I make to the Lord for all the things that He hath given unto me?

  • I saw a Youtube video that went into detail about Beyoncé's possession on stage and it was freaky. I was a bit hesitant to watch it because I'm always wary of Protestant organizations that might have financial or other gain in sensationalizing stuff like that; but this was taken from her own concerts and interviews and there was no way around it. They didn't have to exaggerate anything, her own words were bad enough as they were.

    This is something that makes me shake my head on the subject of fashion too. We have these massive, passionate, outrageous debates on fashion, pants vs skirts, swimwear, to sleeve or not to sleeve etc... but if we were smart and not WILLFULLY blind, the truth is right in front of our noses.

    The designers are bold and proud of the fact that their fashion is sexually oriented. The truth comes from their own lips as they describe the purpose of their designs, but then you get some little traddie defending it tooth and nail as if you're just a perv for saying exactly what the designers themselves say.

    And not just the designers, the wearers as well. When a woman tries on a pair of jeans, what's the first thing she checks out in the mirror to make sure it looks good? Yep! But it's not about showing off the body, no, you can be modest AND fashionable, uh-huh.

    (Can you hear the sarcasm?  :laugh1:)

    Same with swimwear. Only in deep denial traddie-land do people swear up and down that modern swimsuits are not MADE to entice. Talk to any red-blooded man or woman who is not trying to straddle a fence between this mock "modest AND fashionable" facade and they have no qualms admitting what they're showing off and what they're checking out.

    It's no wonder worldly people think we're messed up. We are! When we fight grace and deny what's right in front of us because we desperately want to fit into the world yet still have some vague superficial desire to be "holy", it really makes a mess of our minds and souls. You gotta pick a side!

    And if we're ever unsure of what our side stands for, we just have to look over at what "the enemy" is doing and it confirms everything we know. As bold and brave as we're supposed to be in our Faith that's how they are in their ways as well. Once you repress your conscience or convince yourself that religion and morality is for the birds or it's just self-righteous or condescending, or a political shackle (or whatever other twist they put on it to make hatred of it more palatable), then there's nothing left to tell them these ways are wrong. So why hide them? They generally don't. Where we would have well-deserved shame, remorse and keep it for the confessional, they're in your face about it. If you really want to know what spirit moves these people it's really not hard to find out. It's usually just our attachment to sin, or sometimes naiveté, that makes us rationalize our way out of acknowledging it.

  • It is amazing to me that anyone can defend beyonce's behavior with a straight face, but wendy williams does her best in this video, beginning at minute 8:05

    "Is Beyonce a Bad Role Model for Young Girls?"



    Wow, I'd say the answer is yes, she is a bad role model for young girls!  But a prime time talk show host defends it and gets raving applause from the audience.  While a lot of that may be "canned," that kind of shameless attitude that i think wendy williams has, unfortunately, seems pretty common in women today.  Probably because, despite all of her denials and projections, she is a role model and is responsible for the harm she is doing and will ultimately have to account for it.  I am grateful to know that justice will ultimately be done.

  • This seems like a pretty good video on the topic of beyonce and her "spirit guide" or demon that she lets possess her.  A lot of this ten minute video is in her own words.  



    I guess the thing I think that is even worse than so many people caught up in the occult these days, is the general message that i think she is peddling.  I think that message is that women should use the natural attraction men have for them, in an unnatural way, to enslave men to their own passions, which then become disordered as a result of that, and then try and reap some benefit from that for themselves.  That seems extremely selfish to me and cruel.  What's lacking there is charity.  
    We are true israel and israel is in bondage.
