VIDEO: California Evangelical Christian group claims Beyoncé and Jay-Z are secret Satanists

A peculiar video has been making the rounds on the internet, especially in Evangelical Christian circles, which purports to expose the hidden Satanic symbolism in R&B star Beyoncé’s performances.

A peculiar video has been making the rounds on the internet, especially in Evangelical Christian circles, which purports to expose the hidden Satanic symbolism in R&B star Beyoncé’s performances.

The video, produced by a Simi Valley California church called Good Fight Ministries, is entitled “Beyonce, The Superbowl, Sasha and Satan” and claims that Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are disseminating Satanic and occult propaganda using hidden imagery in their performances and advertising.

The video uses a string of loose comparisons to connect the hip-hop couple to Alistair Crowley, Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan — simply because Jay-Z once gave an interview where he was wearing a shirt with the phrase “Do What Thou Wilt” emblazoned across it, which was a saying popularized by Crowley.

Narrating the video is the ministry’s founder, Pastor Joe Schimmel, who goes on to take various statements by Jay-Z and Beyoncé far out of context, claiming that the artists are allowing themselves to be possessed by evil spirits during their performances.

Perhaps the most bizarre point in the video is when the narrator analyzes Beyoncé’s marketed alter ego, Sasha Fierce:

This demonic entity is more than some alter ego, but a spirit that possesses Beyoncé’s body. In fact, Beyoncé seems to black out and be unconscious of her body when this evil spirit takes control.

On their website, Good Fight Ministries has numerous other links to videos that promote anti-Muslim propaganda, Planned Parenthood conspiracy theories, and other similar videos that allegedly unmasked the hidden Satanic messages in popular music.

    What planet is this dude from?! Has he never heard of allegory? Marketing?

    JayZ and Beyonce’s greatest talent is MARKETING! They have turned themselves into brands through very good and very clever marketing. The “Satanism” he is talking about really doesn’t even exist, there are no Satanic cults out there working for Satan for a very simple reason…Satan doesn’t exist! He is a creation of the early church to control the masses with fear and it is still working nearly 2,000 years later.

    What is most noteworthy about “Good Fight Ministries” is the fact that I can find no OBJECTIVE information about them or “Pastor” Joe Schimmel. There are a plethora of his own sites and those of sympathetic sources but nothing at all that I can find which might give me some unbiased information on him or his “church”.

    This “church” is screaming CULT at me and I find it highly suspect that a cult leader is out there attempting to warn us all of the dangers of what he perceives as a rival cult. I will be bookmarking his site and keeping a close eye on him, I think he is dangerous.

    Well, various fundamentalists have been making claims such as this nearly as long as music has been recorded. It’s an interesting question whether or when people will catch on to the fear-mongering and say No More to this batpoo-craziness, and make these fear-mongers go out, get real jobs, and earn a living.

    They’re ALL dangerous, Bob.

    The problem is, as with all cults, there are True Believers in this one.

    And even worse, it smells distinctly apocalyptic. It (and Joe Schimmel’s site) don’t specifically mention the End of Days (aka Ragnarok, The Rapture, Armageddon, etc.), but I’d bet my wages that’s what passes for chitchat inside the cult.

    Our man Joe obviously likes to keep stuff on the boil, or his sheep will find greener pastures and be even more silly than they are now.

    It’s a short step from Satan to Koolaid!

    Satan only exists in the minds of the those religions that believe that he exists. Alistair Crowley was not a Satanist. And the pentacle is not a Satanic symbol. It seems as though these people do not believe in fact-checking before indoctrinating their followers.

  29. Presqu'ile

    August 4, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    I don’t call it Satanism either Bob Cull, for the same reason that you cite: ‘Satan’ doesn’t exist, and neither does the Christian/Muslim/Jewish God, imao. But I DO most certainly recognize that psychopathic narcissists exist, and that apparently they have a following amongst the less-well-educated. This is because the illusion of worldly power is very seductive, and some people who were raised in poverty (the majority of the world) will do anything to find ‘success’. Now, this is completely outside of the purview of the subject or object of religion (i.e. God and Satan) and yet it is REAL. It’s really more of a mental health issue than anything else. There’s a name for it now: Accute narcissistic personality disorder. Crowley had it bad, and he’s infected Jay-Z et al.

    “Good Fight Ministries” falls into the “no matter how much someone thinks something is true does not make it true” category. It a popular entertainment category in America today. Pastors, gun nuts, teabillies, conservative hosts are other popular examples of the genre.

    But isn’t ignorance and telling lies a sin anymore? I remember when church folks like this who used to spend hours playing music backwards to find Satanic messages. My response to them was do you really think your great creator thinks that this is the absolute best use of your time on this planet by serving God by playing records backwards?

    If you are a true CHRISTian then you would not be supporting these types of comments doubting the existence of God and the Devil. Beyonce may not be what the video is claiming. But to be so naive as to think these things and people don’t exist, is just sad. And it’s all of our job to share Gods Word. His love AND his Wrath.

  36. Bob Cull

    August 7, 2013 at 10:31 am

    His WRATH, Brooklyngirl? You see there is the problem right there. This is typical of all fundamentalist CULTS, what they preach is NOT God worship, it is Devil worship!

    I am agnostic, but I grew up with a very devout Christian mother who remains committed to her faith today at 91 however she has not attended church for over 20 years because she is unable to find a church that does not preach the sort of venom and hatred that does not comport with the God that she follows. She is in complete agreement with me on the statement that what passes for Christianity today is often nothing but a cult like Devil worship, because as she puts it, “my God is a loving and caring God.”

    Her last church was such a “Christian” group that when they learned that a gay man with AIDS was attending told him he was no longer welcome there, she left the same day, loudly informing them of their lack of Christianity.

    Religion is and always has been a method of controlling people nothing less nothing more.

    As an actual expert on occult symbolism, I need to say here that little these people say in this video is even real symbolism. Not one thing. Most of the mythology and symbolism they claim to be in this does not even exist in the way they claim. I could sit here and critique the whole thing and tell you where they are wrong, but I just dont have the time to worry about it.

    Its funny how you make mockery of God as a sky wizard. Because God Is Not In The Sky, He Is Beyound It! If one does not believe in the after life, then stop and think, what is the meaning of life if death serves no purpose. In other words, why even exist, if the end does not justify the mean. You don’t just come into life to make an impact and leave children behind in your wake, just to say, i was here and done that. That’s true about the living, but what does that say about your extinction? And if there’s no god or devil or no heaven or hell; Then are you not afraid of becoming NOTHING after death, since death has no purpose?!

    The burden of proof is on you, believer. No one ever has to prove that something that doesn’t exist doesn’t exist. It is already self evident. It is the believer who must prove that God exists or be dismissed.

    Amen!! God doesn’t force any person to bow down and worship him or follow him here on Earth. We have free will and each person gets to decide for themselves to follow him or the god of this world (satan). If anyone on this board doesn’t believe in God, you are being fooled by the devil. He is real and will do what he can to trick people so they will not follow God. Don’t believe me when I say God is real? Then why not find out for yourselves. It’s not hard to find out for yourselves. It starts with a simple prayer. Ask God to reveal himself to you, humble yourself and really mean it when you ask it. I promise you, if you seek God you will find him. God says all that seek him shall find him. It will change your life. Heaven is real and for God’s followers, hell is real and it’s for Satan and his demons, not for man to spend an eternity.
