Here's a passage from the book I'm reading, Lucifer Rising: Sin, Devil Worship, & Rock 'n Roll, which is an examination of Satanic and related imagery in history, popular culture, and music . . .
In 1986, evangelist Jim Brown of Ohio led 75 young people in the mass burning of records containing the theme to Mr. Ed, the popular TV comedy show about a talking horse. If the song 'A Horse Is A Horse' was played backwards, Brown explained, the message 'Someone sung this song for Satan' could clearly be heard.
After I got done howling in laughter at this particular passage, I decided that I really, REALLY want a Mr. Ed record now! I wanna put it on my turntable and play it backwards and see if I can conjure up the Dark Lord for some infernal horsing around!
The moral of the story is that a horse is a horse, of course, of course . . . unless of course it's a Satanic horse.
