Bowie, Ellen, and the Devil  

In 04/04, Bowie made the largest announcement of his career. Speaking of religion, Bowie said he had tried Buddism, Satanism, and Christianity and that none of them had worked.

This statement is important for several reasons. First of all, Bowie said this recently so it is not merely Ziggy talking, nor is it some cocaine addled jive.

Secondly, Bowie is lumping the religion of Christ, to which he is subject, along with philosophies of man. This is a statement of profound ignorance; Bowie is a heathen.

Last of all, Bowie is stating directly that he has rejected Christ. Clearly, Bowie's heart is evil.

It is significant that Bowie revealed his evil on the Ellen show. Ellen Degeneres is a famous lesbian. Homosexuality is an abomination, and is a sign of a world that has rejected God.

Bowie has chosen a platform of darkness to reveal his darkness.

It matters not that Bowie states that "Satanism did not work;" by renouncing Christ, Bowie has embraced the Devil and is aligned with him.

Excellent. Now we can get on to some seriously cool abums like this one.

My only question is whether rejecting Christianity is inherantly evil or as you say - aligned with the devil - from anything other than a Christian sense.

If you ask me, turning your back to judeo/christian God might mean a lot of things but it's hardly an act of evil.
On the other hand, embracing the thought of such God is clearly a sign of lunacy. Atleast if you believe that the god in question is a benevolant entity...

Re: Bowie, Ellen, and the Devil [re: pianocraft]  

I'm interested to know exactly what Bowie wanted to gain from religion, and isn't it cheating to go from one religion to the other like a spoilt child?. Anyway, I thought all the benefits (other than free bread and wine in church) came at the end of life. Or perhaps he just got bored (likely).

At least I'm not a whore

My guess is he wanted something to take away the fear of his own death. As far as I can see, that's the very reason why people seek comfort from religions.

Re: Bowie, Ellen, and the Devil [re: RabbitFighter]  

Many people in society do not beleive or worship a god. Many people live a life that does not include a god of some sort. So, it is really up to the individual to say whether Bowie was wrong to say what he did about the three religions. But i can see your point. I personally think, that the fact he tried three religions, and openly admitted they were not for him is something i respect. Not many people go out to try and learn more about other religions.
I took a look at the Heathen cover. It maybe a coincidence that the way the text was placed over the image of Bowie, meant that certain letters or part of a letter was highlighted more. As in the cross, the t and h etc.
Once again, all down to Bowie's way of thinking, lying and entertaining.

You show respect, even if you disagree!

I think it has more to do with the death of loved one's, rather the death of one's self. The grief of losing someone can be so great, it is soothing to believe that you can be with them again one day.

So many Christians believe this. It is my understanding that Jesus never turned anyone away. Therefore, the statement is a rejection of Christ.
