Satan's Coming to Town and People Ain't Happy.

So, I was on Nextdoor, getting ready to bump up my wanted ad for a Wednesday/Friday provider, when I saw a thread about the upcoming concert of the band, Ghost.  This wouldn’t be a big deal except Ghost’s death metal band; although, they claim they’re not with blatant Satanic lyrics they claim’re tongue-in-cheek while dressed like a demonic pope and so forth.

OK, Midland ain’t the most liberal city.  We’ve got pockets of open-minded liberals, but they’re swimming in a sea of conservatism.  The back and forth I saw on this thread showed that.  People talking about demonstrating and closing them down and how dare the Wagner Noel host them.  The Wagner’s response was that the band’s on a national tour, they’ve got no say.

The fact of the matter is, obviously the band’s got an audience, even if it’s a small one here in bodunk Midland, or else they sure as hell wouldn’t have landed here.  Also, like one or two open-minded people said, it’s not you, me, or anybody’s business to judge what others listen to.  If you don’t like it, don’t go.  People shot back that it’s not about the music, it’s about Satan.

Again, we ARE in America, people are allowed to have their own religion whether you, me, or anybody agrees like someone said in the thread.

What you guys think?

Be good to each other.
