Evangelization in reverse!

Meet the Novus Ordo High Priest of Heavy Metal

The Vatican II Sect is infamous for promoting, approving of, encouraging, and tolerating all kinds of evils and aberrations.

When in late 2017, a co-founder of the Australian hard rock band AC/DC was called to render an account before his Creator — and then probably quickly found himself on the highway to hell for the rock’n’roll damnation his band loved to sing about — the Novus Ordo Sect was right there to “accompany” the Satan admirers with a “Catholic” (i.e. Novus Ordo) funeral in Sydney’s cathedral.

Every single sacrament in the Modernist church has been reduced to a parody of itself. This is no different for the Sacred Priesthood of our Lord Jesus Christ, which an ordained priest shares in. The sacred has become profane, and the profane has become sacred.

Over the decades the world has had to endure all kinds of “cool” Novus Ordo clerics: From the rapping Stan Fortuna via the tap-dancing presbyters to the flash-mob “bishops” of World Youth Day, we’ve pretty much seen it all. Even the religious life was not spared desecration. We all remember the rocking Suor Cristina and the aptly-named Notker Wolf, Abbot Primate (!) of the Benedictine Order, whose claim to infamy is being a member of the rock band Feedback (care to witness a performance?).

But the Vatican II Sect wouldn’t be the Vatican II Sect if it couldn’t get worse still. So today, ladies and gentlemen, we introduce to you… “Fr.” Robert Culat, the “high priest” of heavy metal!

Also known as “Padre Bob”, the 52-year-old Irreverend Culat was invalidly ordained in 1993 for the diocese of Avignon, France, after completing his studies in Rome. Since 2010 he has been stationed in Copenhagen, Denmark.

On July 3, 2019, the web site Narratively published an article about Culat entitled “The High Priest of Heavy Metal”, written by one Skot Thayer. The essay’s intro says it all: “First he found God. Then he found death metal. But Father Robert Culat believes there’s no reason the two can’t co-exist.”

Obviously the poor presbyter had never heard of our Lord’s warning: “No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon” (Mt 6:24). If mammon (money), a thing indifferent in itself, can easily become God’s enemy, how much more could so-called “death metal” be reconcilable with the Lord of life, who said: “I am come that they may have life, and may have it more abundantly” (Jn 10:10)? Neither must Culat have ever come across St. Paul asking the Corinthians rhetorically: “…what participation hath justice with injustice? Or what fellowship hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with the unbeliever?” (2 Cor 6:14-15).

How the Irrev. Culat “reconciles” God with Satanic music can be seen in the following illustration, which he received from one of his “metal friends” upon leaving France for Copenhagen, and which he has happily posted on his YouTube channel:

Surely no comment is needed regarding this sacrilegious image.

Culat is a perfect example of where Vatican II inspired “dialogue” typically leads. As explained in Thayer’s “High Priest” article, Culat’s journey down the abyss began when he encountered two youngsters at his local high school, one of whom was a member of Cortège, “a death metal band, featuring frantic blast beats, abrasive guitars and indecipherable vocals, the most extreme of the extreme.”

This made him curious, and so he began researching, exposing himself to lots of the music and studying it and its culture. That did it: “Gradually, he found himself listening to some of the albums not out of scientific curiosity but for recreational purposes”, the article notes.

Keeping his identity as a (fake) priest hidden in order not to skew the results, he began sending out a questionnaire to numerous metal listeners and tabulated the responses: “The surveys revealed that of the more than 500 French metalheads who responded, 15 percent of them were religious or spiritual in some way. This flew in the face of the prevailing stereotypes of metal music fans as godless hedonists or dramatic Satanists.” Just why Culat would interpret the 15% “somewhat religious or spiritual” — and the remaining 85% not even that — as necessarily contradicting the “prevailing stereotypes”, is not explained.

With his new interest firmly established, “Fr.” Culat decided to do some practical implementation. Being the great evangelizer and devoted liturgist he no doubt is, the presbyter “sought out a young man named Victor who played guitar in a local metal band to bring some youthful vigor to” the liturgy. And voilà, before you knew it, people who were unfortunate enough to be assisting at Culat’s Novus Ordo worship service, were subjected to a guitarist playing Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters at the offertory preparation of the gifts. What an enrichment! At least it wasn’t Jump in the Fire.

By 2007, the Judas priest published his first (but not last) book on this subject so dear to his heart, entitled L’Âge du Metal (“Age of Metal”). Lest anyone say it didn’t have an impact, it definitely did: The Thayer article speaks of the case of a youngster who picked up a copy and triumphantly told his disapproving conservative mother that the book had been “written by a priest”! What did the book accomplish? Did the boy begin to show an interest in God, in religion, in Catholicism, in the Gospel, in liturgical music, in devotion to the Sacred Heart? Not exactly. Rather: “The mother read the book before the son got a chance to, and soon after she called Culat to thank him for helping her better understand her son.” Clearly, if anyone was converted, it was the mother — and in the wrong direction.

Thayer’s article also relates a very tragic anecdote involving a young man named Guillaume, whose acquaintance Culat had made in connection with the survey he had sent out. Realizing the boy was a troubled soul — a surprising discovery, no doubt — he at least had enough sense to take him to a monastery, where he eventually asked him if he wanted to see an exorcist. The youngster agreed!

Would a soul finally be freed from its Satanic ensnarements and be led to the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, who redeemed it? Alas, no. Since we now live in the “New Springtime” of Vatican II, the Novus Ordo exorcist wasn’t of much help. Although even “Culat was genuinely disturbed by the ‘most Satanic, most blasphemous’ messages in Guillaume’s favorite music” and thus “wanted to assure himself that the boy was not a victim of demonic possession”, the exorcist found “nothing special” about the poor soul, and that was the end of that. Culat was relieved, the article notes. About three years later Guillaume committed suicide.

Must be an edifying read: Culat’s book Cattle Decapitation: Gore Ecology (2018)

Let’s recall how Culat got himself entangled in this wicked web (cf. Prov 5:22).

It all started with the curiosity he entertained after meeting two metalheads at a high school. Wisely did the Psalmist counsel: “…if sinners shall entice thee, consent not to them” (Prov 1:10); and hence St. Paul warned the Corinthians: “Be not seduced: Evil communications corrupt good manners” (1 Cor 15:33). Instead of evangelizing them, they ended up reverse-evangelizing him. It is one thing to do some research, with the proper spiritual precautions, on what exactly is entrapping sinners so they can be freed from their vices, but it’s quite another to carelessly expose oneself in great abundance to the very things that are driving youngsters to an admiration of Satan and all his works and pomps.

But time and again this is what happens in the New Church of the Second Vatican Council. Its dialogue with the world tends to be a one-way street — usually it does not make pagans into Catholics, it makes Catholics into pagans. Examples to that effect are available in heaps:

Aside from his interest in heavy/death/thrash/black metal and profaning the sacred, Culat has a soft spot for animals. His Wikipedia entry notes that he “fights against food waste and defends animals, especially against factory farming, and to this end advocates vegetarian nutrition” (translation by deepl.com). In 2015 he published the book Méditations Bibliques sur les Animaux (“Biblical Meditations on Animals”).

Instead of meditating on animals — mere creatures that are not even made to the image and likeness of God (cf. Gen 1:26), having no intellect and no will — this metal “high priest” should instead be meditating on the exhortations of the Uncreated Word: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Eph 5:11); “Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one’s self unspotted from this world” (Jas 1:27).

Most especially he should meditate on this biblical warning: “Be not deceived, God is not mocked. For what things a man shall sow, those also shall he reap” (Gal 6:7-8).

It won’t be a pretty harvest.
