Swanson: The Beatles Encourage Demonism, Paved The Way For 'Satanic Pagan Orgy' At The Grammy Awards

Religious Right talk show host Kevin Swanson is joining other conservative pundits in trashing the Grammy Awards for becoming, in his words, a “satanic pagan orgy.”

Swanson said that the award show “was a celebration of fornication, twerking, stripping and satanic rituals,” and claimed the mass wedding that included same-sex couples was inspired by Roman Emperor Nero.

Swanson has an explanation for all of this: The Beatles are to blame.

According to Swanson, The Beatles encouraged a “secular, demonic approach to things” in pop culture, and lashed out at the band members as apostates: “It takes apostates to destroy a culture and to undermine a civilization, that’s how you get from ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ to ‘Let’s Do It In The Road.’”

“And by the way, the 2014 Grammys celebrated The Beatles, yet again, and I think that’s important because The Beatles opened things up for us, that’s how we got to the drug culture of 1969 and 1970,” he added.
