It was 50 years ago next week that Sgt. Pepper taught the world to twerk.

At least, that’s what religious right broadcaster Kevin Swanson suggested in advance of the Feb. 9 semicentennial of the Beatles’ first live American television performance.

The Generations Radio broadcaster joined a host of other conservative commentators in denouncing the 2014 Grammy Awards telecast as immoral, reported Right Wing Watch.

“The 2014 Grammy celebration was a celebration of fornication, twerking, stripping (and) satanic rituals topped off with about 34 [inaudible] weddings conducted by a lesbian with music provided by Madonna, so yeah, the homosexuals getting married and the tradition of the Caesar Nero, was basically a pagan, satanic orgy,” Swanson said.

The broadcaster blamed pop star Katy Perry, who had previously released a Christian-themed album under her given name, Katy Hudson, for inspiring young people to abandon their faith.

“Katy Perry and all her friends, apostates from faith, they move gradually out of the Christian faith and into a secular, demonic approach to things and they move out of the Christian – this is how you get from a 55 percent church attendance ratio for the Silent Generation to 18 percent for the Millennial Generation down to 4 percent in the year 2025,” Swanson said.

The 29-year-old singer was following an example set decades ago by two performers who also appeared on the Grammy broadcast.

“It wouldn’t happen without the Beatles,” Swanson said.

He said the Beatles, too, were apostates, citing the location where John Lennon met his future bandmate, Paul McCartney, in 1957 while playing with his skiffle group, The Quarrymen.

“The Beatles had to start in the choir at Saint Peter’s Anglican Church,” Swanson said, misidentifying the type of music played by Lennon’s group. “They had to! They had to start there, friends. They had to work out the first bars of ‘Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On’ on the church piano at Saint Peter’s Anglican Church.”

He said both The Beatles and Perry started their careers as religious musicians in accordance with prophesy.

“It takes apostates to destroy a culture and to undermine a civilization,” Swanson said. “That’s how you get from ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand” to ‘Let’s Do It In The Road (sic) by 1968.”

“The 2014 Grammys celebrated the Beatles yet again, and I think that’s important because the Beatles opened things up for us, that’s how we got to the drug culture of 1969s and 1970s,” he added.
