Rock ‘n Roll: Satanic Music - VII
Entering the Battle against Rock

Second, letters should be sent to the offices of consumer protection agencies. This campaign should explain that these recordings are being distributed with no notice of the pernicious and harmful subliminal messages they contain, which incite their listeners to subversion, corruption and even consecration to the Devil.
Third, a concerted action should be made to address our public representatives – federal, state and local. Our legislators can be encouraged to take legal action of three different types:
- Enact laws like that proposed by Philip Wyman in California;
- Encourage a revision of international agreements that promote and spread rock records, recordings and dangerous revolutionary concerts and spectacles;
- Seek official statements on this serious problem or a formal commitment to regulate them from government agencies and officials;
- Unfortunately, it would be difficult – or even impossible – to enact legislative measures that take the form of censorship in our present day climate. But, there are still many other means of intervention that can be taken regarding the classification, cover presentations and marketing of these camouflaged products. For example, a law could be proposed regarding subliminal messages that includes a formal prohibition of these methods in the production of discs, tapes and films.

For example, Marilyn Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, is a recruiter for the Church of Satan, where his hero, Anton LaVey, made him an honorary minister. He later changed his name to Marilyn Manson (to impersonate Marilyn Monroe and to glorify another hero, mass murderer and Satanist Charles Manson).
Manson has burned Bibles and urinated on pictures of Jesus during his concerts. He is famous for giving “alter calls” for Satan by encouraging youth to reject Jesus Christ and accept Satan in their hearts and minds. He sells WWJD bracelets at his concerts, an acronym that stands for We Want Jesus Dead.
Manson tells youth that Hell is a great place and should not be feared. He says it is one great big party of eternity with all of the drugs and sex you can ever want. The way to escape the pressures of this world, he advises, is to commit suicide, which many of his adepts have done.
This is just a sampling of what youth who have Manson's CDs in their possession are being exposed to. (1)
It is nothing less than negligence, cowardice or perversity for parents to ignore the satanic inspiration of rock music and allow their children to be part of the rock culture and revolution.
The need for good music
Every educator knows that it is useless to prohibit or denounce any behavior without proposing better alternatives and models to be followed. Therefore, it is necessary to replace the American and British Rock 'n' Roll with sound works of a better quality.

Local parishes, schools, home schooling organizations, etc. should organize information campaigns that make good music and activities available.
What is not an alternative is the so-called “Christian rock,” which is really just a guise to introduce rock music and its satanic inspiration into churches and homes. We are told that we must look and sound like the world in order to reach the youth of this generation, and so we introduce rock music into the churches to attract the youth. This type of reasoning is the doctrine of demons that unfortunately many Catholics are accepting.
What “Christian rock” promotes is a compromise with rock music that opens the door to its bad effects. The same spirit of Rock 'n' Roll is found in so-called Christian rock: the spirit of rebellion, the spirit of immorality and perversion and an acceptance of the cultural revolution of the modern world.
Behind this guise we find, therefore, a desire to conform to the modern world rather than to separate oneself from its godless influence.
Entering the battle against rock
It took 30 years of setback for us to come to know the exact nature of Rock 'n Roll and realize the extent of its revolution. The time has come for all people of good will to unite their efforts in order to help rebuild a renewed society and begin the march to restore Christian Civilization. Tomorrow we will have the society we build today, and today's youth is the guarantor of the future of society and the Church.
Making an open profanation of Catholic symbols
Ultimately, we approach this issue with an invitation to take up this battle against rock as a spiritual fight as the only means to conquer.
Since this combat is first and foremost a spiritual battle against the powers of darkness, the more effective means to be implemented are prayer, religious formation, preaching the evils of rock in retreats, good spiritual reading and frequenting the Sacraments. Above all, what is needed is a new zeal and love for Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother.
To conclude, we remind you that Jesus is the victor and that the Devil is the father of lies who “masquerades as an angel of light” (2 Cor 11: 14) and is already conquered. ... In summary, the choice we have to make is between Christ and Satan.

“Finally, brethren, be strengthened in the Lord and in the might of his power. Put you on the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the Devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.
“Therefore, take unto you the armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice. And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one.
“And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God). By all prayer and supplication praying at all times in the spirit; and in the same watching with all instance and supplication for all the saints: And for me, that speech may be given me, that I may open my mouth with confidence, to make known the mystery of the gospel. For which I am an ambassador in a chain, so that therein I may be bold to speak according as I ought.” (Eph. 6: 10 -20).
