A baptist pastor in Arizona recently called metal bands like Pantera, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath "satanic" and "blasphemous," Blabbermouth reports.
Homophobic pastor Steven Anderson recently made news after saying "we can have an AIDS-free world by Christmas" if all gays are "executed." Now, he's turned his attention to those pesky metal bands.

So eight times it refers to Lord Jesus Christ as 'the son of Pantera.' You say, 'Well, who's Pantera?' Well, it's not the metal band from the eighties. But let me tell you something. When I'm done explaining who Pantera is, you'll realize how satanic that metal band is for calling themselves that. Why are they named that? It's [a] blasphemous name. A lot of the rock and roll uses a lot of satanic… Look at some of the names of some of these metal [bands]… Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Pantera…"
