Catholic organization starts petition against Dark Horse Brewing Co.’s Scary Jesus Rock Star citing blasphemy
MARSHALL, MI — A seasonal beer from Dark Horse Brewing Co. has upset a Catholic organization that launched a petition to have the named changed.
Dark Horse’s Scary Jesus Rock Star, an American pale ale with chamomile and apricots, came to the attention of The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property, or TFP, that is described as “an organization of lay Catholic Americans concerned about the moral crisis shaking the remnants of Christian civilization.”
The organization launched an online petition asking Dark Horse founder Aaron Morse to change the name.
The petition on TFP’s website says:
Clearly, no reverence is being shown towards the Most Holy Name of Jesus, not to mention describing Our Lord as a “rock star.” The culture of rock music often promotes a lifestyle of immorality, debauchery and open worship of the devil.
How can you associate our most Pure and Holy Lord Jesus Christ with rock and roll?
Even more disgusting is the imagery used on the outside of the bottle.
It is a depiction of Our Lord screaming into a microphone with an electric guitar in one hand, and the other a clenched fist.
Unfortunately, the blasphemy does not end here.
The description on their website says the beer, “will save your soul and then melt your face off…Just as your mind is clear and your sins are washed away, a tasty riff of sweet and earthy fresh apricots hit your palate and rock your taste buds.”
How dare they also mock the Catholic concept of salvation!
Please, for the Most Holy Name of Jesus, sign this petition to put a stop the blasphemy being perpetrated by the Dark Horse Brewing Co.
Here is Dark Horse’s full description of Scary Jesus Rock Star, which is released in October and available through January:
“This collaboration beer made with Chef Cleetus Friedman of Chicago’s Fountainhead will save your soul and then melt your face off. Aromas of chamomile touch your nose as they lead into the soft body and mouthfeel of this liquid symphony. Just as your mind is clear and your sins are washed away, a tasty riff of sweet and earthy fresh apricots hit your palate and rock your tastebuds finishing dry and hoppy. Drink, rock, repeat.”
