Ozzy: The Rest Of The Story.....
I thought this was kind of interesting, I got this off another discussion board. I am not quite sure who wrote it all, but the quotes I was told can be verified by doing a google search. I always knew Ozzy in the past was a bit on the dark side, but I didn't realize all of the things that He and the other Black Sabbath members had done and said throughout the years, as quoted in this article. I never paid much attention; in the 80s I was more into New Wave music and stuff like that than anything else (I was not a huge Ozzy fan, but I thought Black Sabbath was pretty cool, at the time.) Mainly, I am posting this just to see what kind of responses it gets and the discussion (if any) arises from it.

Ozzy Osbourne: the Rest of the Story
Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. Matthew 12:45
One of the hottest celebrities today is the vulgar, violent and demonic Ozzy Osbourne. MTV recently launched the profanity-soaked The Osbournes family show. The Osbournes is simply filmed during Oz and family’s normal (if you could possibly call it that) daily life. No acting. . . No pretense. . . Just simply being their abnormal self. It’s just "family time with The Osbournes".
I stomached one nauseating viewing of The Osbournes (and believe me – that was one too many!). I counted 51 occurrences of the "F-word" in a little over 15 minutes (episode "Dinner with Ozzy"). Profanity and perversion is spewed by all the Oz kin – Oz, wife, teenage daughter and son. Of course, MTV "bleeps" the worse profanity out, but the actual words are easily understood. In between the onslaught of f-words, and depravity, a drug-cooked-burnt-out Ozzy staggers, mumbles, shakes and screams in a state of spaced-out, confusion. Much of the subject matter and perverse acts can not and will not be repeated in this article – but believe me – it’s sicko, sicko and sicko. . . And sicko. .
MTV’s vulgar and vile The Osbournes is the most successful show in MTV history! It received the highest ratings of any other entertainment program on any other cable station this season. Over 8 million viewers tune in to The Osbournes. MTV’s contract to extend The Osbournes profanity-program another two years was the most expensive in MTV’s history! Over $20 million! (as a side note from La Rubia: I do not know when this was written, but it has been my understanding that this season was to the The Osbournes last on MTV, by the family's choice, but I could be wrong.)
". . . men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. . ." John 3:19
And let’s not forget the mountain of books such as The Osbournes Un*******authorized, episode guides, and scores of others. There’s talking and bobbing head dolls of The Osbournes, complete with the "bleeped out" F-word. And of course there’s the deluge of The Osbournes posters, keychains, trading cards, caps, t-shirts, calendars, magazines, coin-banks, snow globes and who knows what else.
The fact that mainstream America has lavishly welcomed Ozzy and The Osbournes with accolades, awards and open arms is a frightening testimony to the perverted spiritual and moral condition of America.
For instance, Ozzy recently was awarded the coveted star on the renowned Hollywood Hall of Fame. As someone pointed out, the Oz’s star was ironically in front of the Ripley's Believe it Or Not! Museum. Satanist and fellow pervert-rocker, Marilyn Manson introduced Ozzy at the bizarre Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony. Manson said, "This star right here proves that it's quite obvious that Ozzy has managed to succeed while remaining insane and strangely happy, despite his various crimes against God and nature." We'll look at his "crimes against God" later, along with his "insanity" and "strangely happy" condition.
The expletive-drenched The Osbournes was awarded an Emmy award for the year's outstanding nonfiction reality program.
Oh. . . Guess who was the star at the 2002 White House Correspondents Dinner? The self-proclaimed, Prince of Darkness, himself. Oz was the surprise guest of Fox's Greta Van Susteren. Despite the sea of celebrities, congressman, and even President Bush’s presence clearly, the main attraction was the Oz. President Bush amazingly gave the Bush seal of approval to Ozzy and his music. President Bush said in his speech at the gala event, "The thing about Ozzy is, he's made a lot of big hit recordings 'Party With the Animals.' 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.' 'Facing Hell.' 'Black Skies' and 'Bloodbath in Paradise.'" And then President Bush added, "Ozzy, Mom loves your stuff."Uhhh....Mr. Prez? Are you okay?
Basking in their new found, mainstream acceptance and adoration, Oz and family have appeared on such notables as Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show and a special one hour "Meet the Osbournes" 20/20 with Barbara Walters.
Remember Dan Quayle? The former vice-president, who went ballistic because TV’s Murphy Brown had a baby out of wedlock. When asked his opinion of The Osbournes, Quayle replied The Osbournes were "good entertainment" and "good family values". Dan did you somehow miss the episode where Oz puts condoms in his teenagers drawers so they can have "safe sex"? Or when Oz gives his teenagers (Kelly 18 and Jack 15) some "fatherly advice" as they’re going out for the night, "If you have sex use a condom". Or the zillion occurrences of the F-word. . . Plus the other quad-trillion vulgarities and perverse conversations. Good entertainment. . . Good family values. . . God help us. . .
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil;. . ." Isaiah 5:20
While the media is romancing Ozzy with prestigious awards and accolades there’s another side of the Oz that they’ve somehow skipped. It is the evil and dark testimony of a man who truly "sold his soul for rock ‘n roll" down a wicked dark path of drugs, debauchery, the occult and demon-possession.
As Paul Harvey would say, "Now, for the rest of the story".
IN THE BEGINNING. . .
OZZY AND BLACK SABBATH
Ozzy’s claim to fame was the lead singer of the heavy metal group Black Sabbath. Singing songs filled with doom, evil, the occult, Satan and destruction, Black Sabbath’s music has been appropriately referred to as "Satan Rock".
Sabbath’s music is described as ". . .demonic riffing . . . ." (Guitar World, July 2001, p. 62),
possessing a ". . . demonic nature. . ." (Guitar Legends, No. 37, p. 32)
". . . a fascination with evil and the devil. . ." (Circus, May 31, 1984, p. 59)
Making sure no one could possibly misinterpret their pro-Devil and anti-Christ message, Sabbath’s first album portrayed a demonic witch on the cover and in the inside the cross of Jesus Christ upside-down. The universal symbol of Satanism and anti-Christianity.
Sabbath’s song N.I.B. (Nativity In Black), from their first album, is one of the most openly satanic songs ever recorded. It is a love-song from Lucifer. In the song, Ozzy sings in the first person as a loving, gift-giving Lucifer. . . And Ozzy, a.k.a Lucifer, openly invites the listener to "take Lucifer’s hand".
* * (Note: I will try to paste the lyrics later on if I have time)* *
Their namesake song Black Sabbath, in which Ozzy sings of a smiling Satan appearing as a black shape with eyes of fire, was taken from an actual, demonic visitation of Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler.
"Having borrowed a 16th century tome [book] of black magic from [Ozzy] Osbourne one afternoon, Butler awoke that night to find a black shape staring balefully at him from the foot of his bed. After a few frightening moments, the figure slowly vanished into thin air. . . I told Ozzy about it. It stuck in his mind, and when we started playing ‘Black Sabbath,’ he just came out with those lyrics. . . It had to come out, and it eventually did in that song and then there was only one possible name for the band, really!’"
(Geezer Butler, Guitar World, July 2001, p. 67)
"I'd sort of dabbled in Black Magic, not practicing it, but I was interested in it. All these horrible things kept happening to me – a lot of my aunts and uncles started dying and I was seeing all these bloody things visiting me during the night."
(Geezer, Seconds, #39, pp. 63-64)
"I was seeing all kinds of things at the time, and not through drugs,’ Butler reveals. ‘Ever since I was a kid, I’d have premonitions and weird things would appear to me.’"
(Geezer Butler, Guitar World, July 2001, p. 67)
"Geezer’s encounters with the supernatural continued. During recording of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath in Bel Air, the bassist felt an ominous presence fill his bedroom. He looked up to see several specters glaring at him from above with overpowering effect. Awash with fear, he immediately awakened Bill, Tony, and Ozzy to tell them what has happened. Geezer soon discovered that all of his fellow bandmates had experienced similar events. . . To Sabbath it was obvious that a dark, ominous cloud was looming over them."
(Black Sabbath: The Ozzy Osbourne Years, p. 19)
Bill Ward, drummer for Sabbath, admits there was a supernatural presence that inspired Sabbath. It was so real that Ward confesses, it was as if there was actually a "fifth member" in the group.
"I believe that Black Sabbath was a phenomenon. On that basis, when I look back now at the band, I have felt that there was a fifth member, if you like. . . So I've always considered that there was some way where we were able to channel energy, and that energy was able to be, from another source, if you like, like a higher power or something, that was actually doing the work. I've often thought of us just being actually just the earthly beings that played the music because it was uncanny. Some of this music came out extremely uncanny."
(Mike Stark, Black Sabbath An Oral History, p. 6)
The most frightening and enlightening statement concerning Black Sabbath’s real beliefs was made by drummer Bill Ward in Circus magazine:
"We’re into God," defended Iommi, an avid reader on books on astral projection. ‘But sometimes I feel Satan is God.’ Ward countered."
(Circus, May 31, 1984, p. 59)

(I don't remember what this is..... oh, I hope it's something that has to do with Ozzy! LOL)

No one has anything to say about this? Oh, come on!

wow, you figured out tha Ozzy Osbourne is satanist.
Just kidding. Yeah I like Ozzy (some of his albums) and other songs, but I don´t like old Black Sabbath much. And I knew he was satanic and all, but I just have fun with the songs and the crazy vocals from Ozzy, cause he sings like no other.

Mama I'm coming home is pretty suave.Have you the brain worms?!
May 27th 2003, 11:53 PM #10
Oh....my....goodness...... I was beginning to think you were all playing a joke on me and not replying just to mess with me!!! LOL
Haha Actually, I DID just realize he was a satanist.....don't ask me where I was all that time, I have no idea! I had heard things in the 80s, bits and pieces, but paid no attention. I figured people were just making something out of nothing, and I figured he used the upside down crosses and stuff just as a gimmick. I didn't pay much attention, I never really got into his music or anything. I liked some other heavy metal groups and stuff, but never could get into Ozzy (plus, my favorite bands at the time were Oingo Boingo and Depeche Mode...... that should tell you how far I was into the hard stuff! Hehe)
