Beyonce Accused of Being a SatanistPublished by Runteldat on Wednesday, November 4, 2009 at 12:00 am.
As you know, Muslims and Christians are the Crips and Bloods of religion so rarely if ever will you see the two sides taking a stand together. But there is a force so great that it can bring these two long divisive sides together.
We call that force Beyonce.
Still on her world tour, Beyonce’s about to make her way to Egypt and there are religious critics on both sides who think she’s worshipping the devil like Rihanna.
This Friday Beyonce will take the stage in North Africa at the Red Sea Resort of Port Ghalib.
Here’s what Muslim and Christians are saying about Queen Creole:
Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic movement and staunch opposition of the Mubarak government said the government is trying to divert peoples’ attention from real business of politics by bringing a singer who always appears naked in her video clips to play in Egypt.
Member of Parliament, Hamdi Hassan from the Muslim Brotherhood said: “The government is trying to make people indulge in sin and licentiousness to cover up the other crimes it is committing against them.”
The R&B diva’s stage performances make the eyes tweak. Her provocative dance moves and half-naked outfits could easily stir up reaction from ardent religious and modest people, observers have said. Beyonce who once claimed she is religious and goes to church was quickly slammed by an online Christian group, Jesus-is-saviour.com, “Beyonce is NO Christian. She is satanic, serving the Devil,” it stated.
Poverty is still endemic in Egypt and the ticket fee that has climbed up to US$400 is unreasonable high. Conservative Christians and Muslims in the land of the Pharaoh have questioned what benefit the show brings to the country apart from “immorality”.
Yep, the woman who rarely if ever curses is accused of being Satan’s BFF. Go figure.
