I’m sure there are plenty of examples of religious groups trying to spread their message that God’s not dead in a variety of strange, and sometimes unintentionally amusing, ways. Here in North America, it’s mainly groups of conservative Christians. The latest attempt by a Christian movement that’s trying to appear “hip and happening” in spreading their message shows Thom Yorke as Satan.
This is the image they came up with:
Perhaps the group, New Generation for God, selected an image of a rockstar at random and aren’t quite sure who Thom Yorke and Radiohead are. Or maybe they really do think the Radiohead frontman is the Devil himself.
Either way, according to Wow 24/7, “the group’s plan to use social media to deliver their message hit an unfortunate set-back, when they enlisted the Radiohead frontman (in his OK Computer era pomp) as their face of the devil”. Fans took this in stride and joked about it, like in this tweet:
And this one:
I always knew Satan had a great taste in music.

The frontman has had his image used in other…unique situations as well. Just last year the same image that the Christian group used was featured in a book about sex and relationship issues in Iran.
So, does this mean that Thom Yorke is devilishly sexy?
