“”The positive aspects of Hip Hop are dung as far as the word of God is concerned
“”Hip-hop itself is a very weak demon, but has gone unattested for so long, that it has a major following.
Lewis preaches that rock (especially heavy metal) and rap and hip-hop music is the work of Satan and that some musicians are possessed. His rants are collected in the documentaries The Truth Behind Hip-Hop and The Truth Behind Rock and Roll. Note that these are all published recently, not during the 1980s moral panic. Lewis of course received his message directly from God.
- Heavy metal and hip-hop damages youth causing premarital sex, "sexual relationships without the consent of their parents", drug use, Satan worship, and suicide.
- Hip-hop culture prepares the way for the Antichrist. (But wait, wouldn't it supposedly be a good thing to bring on the End Times?)
- Hip-hop culture is "the greatest attack on the youth of the world". (Yes, hip-hop is more harmful than world hunger, AIDS and anything else that harms young people)
