Bishop prays for Suicidal Angels

An Austrian bishop, possibly shaken by the idea of Suicidal Angels, has called on fellow Catholics to pray for music fans attending a death-metal festival early next month.

Klaus Kueng, diocesan bishop of Sankt Poelten in northern Austria, urged believers Thursday “to pray for the festival’s participants” when they gather in his town on July 5-7 for the Extremefest.

The cleric insisted he had nothing against rock concerts but “the imagery and tone” of this particular event was “really extreme,” the Austrian Catholic Church’s news agency Kathpress reported.

The line-up was “infused with aggressive-occult band names, references to blood and violence, and disturbing images,” Kueng said.

Kueng questioned what it said about society “when it’s desirable to get high on something like that for three days.”
