A Former Disney Star Has Just Released An Album Mocking The Crucifixion…

 A Former Disney Star Has Just Released An Album Mocking The Crucifixion…

There is a remark ascribed to the Great Russian novelist Dostoyevsky that is false: “If there is no God, everything is permitted.”  Nevertheless, it holds true…in the process.

However, people who despise the existence of God turn to ridicule and derision in order to mock moral boundaries and make a buck. Consider the singer Demi Lovato as an example. According to Fox News, the 30-year-old former Disney Channel actor appeared for a billboard that depicts her in “bondage-style attire while resting on a huge, cushioned crucifix.”

In the report, the advertising standards authority (ASA) in the United Kingdom has banned the poster because it is “likely to cause serious offense to Christians” and was created to promote Demi Lovato’s new album, “Holy Fvck.”

On the surface, Lovato’s scheme appears to be just another cynical attempt to promote her new album. But there’s more to it than that, aside from that there’s no denying that it’s for Controversy sales.

The people who filed a formal complaint over the poster “challenged whether the ad was likely to cause serious or widespread offense” and claimed it was “irresponsibly placed” where children may see it, as a report published by the ASA.

“We considered that the image of Ms. Lovato bound up in a bondage-style outfit whilst lying on a mattress shaped like a crucifix, in a position with her legs bound to one side which was reminiscent of Christ on the cross, together with the reference to ‘holy fvck’, which in that context was likely to be viewed as linking sexuality to the sacred symbol of the crucifix and the crucifixion, was likely to cause serious offense to Christians,” the ASA report stated.

And speaking of stating the obvious, Lovato makes it seem as though she is working with Satan when she poses for the photo shoot. Well, things may be frequently not what they seem. Lovato might be pleading for assistance. But, who else would agree to such blasphemy?

Lovato’s eighth studio album, “Holy Fvck,” deals with some dark subject matter, including drug and alcohol addiction, and was released in August.

“Skin of My Teeth,” one of the tracks, was motivated by Lovato’s health issues following an overdose in 2018. Multiple strokes and brain damage were brought on by the tragedy.  CNN reported that Lavato stated that she stayed sober throughout the recording of the album, something she is “very proud of,” on a “Spout” podcast.

The musician, 30, has a protracted history of evil. In a report by the DailyMail, Lovato spoke candidly with “Call Her Daddy” podcast presenter Alex Cooper about the terrible treatment she received as a child celebrity.

As a Disney child star, Lovato claimed that she was “overworked” and “controlled,” which exacerbated her eating disorders and drug usage. She said she was “barricaded” at hotels to prevent her from eating and that even after she puked blood, she was not given medical attention.

Lovato appears to be attributing her Disney handlers’ abuse of her as a child to God. She has cause to be indignant. If the accusations are shown to be accurate, who wouldn’t be?

Men have the freedom to choose to do what is right or wrong, or — far too frequently — nothing at all. But to hold God accountable for the deeds of wicked men is akin to punishing the great-great-great-grandfather of a serial killer who also happened to be a saint. We wouldn’t be made in the image of God. We wouldn’t be human without freedom.

Lovato probably knew the poster would be widely disseminated when she decided to pose for it. She had to have understood that the corrosive influence of what can only be described as either the hatred of God or the yearning to be God would likely be exposed to children.

The Universal Music Group Company Polydor Records, on the other hand, did not consider the poster to be offensive. Fox reported that due to the agency’s approval; the posters were displayed, telling the ASA that it was “acceptable to run on the proposed sites.”

And Lavato may be seen as just another victim, if this case that the mainstream entertainment sector is to blame since it will use whatever means necessary to promote its brand, regardless of its impact on morality, as one might conclude. However, bad experiences and brain damage from drug overdoses do not excuse her; still, it was Lovato’s choice to pose for the poster.

There were several saints who struggled intellectually. St. Agatha Kim A-gi, a Korean woman with intellectual difficulties who lived from 1787 to 1839, was unable to learn the Hail Mary. She used to respond, “I only know Jesus and Mary,” when asked to recite different prayers.

Kim was denied baptism because she couldn’t memorize anything, no matter how hard she tried. Kim was baptized in prison just before her martyrdom, but when she was imprisoned and forced to renounce the faith while being tortured, her reaction was the same: “I only know Jesus and Mary.”

In the ASA ruling, as reported by Fox News, the ad is not to appear again “in the form complained of unless it was suitably targeted,” although, it’s a little unexpected that the ASA rejected the advertisement given that Christianity is currently a minority religion in Britain.

A satanic club’s basement would be the only place for such a poster to find an appropriate audience.

Lovato needs prayer. She did claim that she heard God so there’s always a chance that she will come to see the light.  Like, we all do.
