The Church of Satan has hailed Christian Bale’s Golden Globes victory, after the acclaimed actor thanked their spiritual leader.
Christian Bale won Best Actor in a Drama for his role as former vice president Dick Cheney in Adam McKay’s Vice. In his acceptance speech, Bale singled out Satan for “giving me inspiration on how to play this role.”
In direct response, the Church of Satan wrote: “To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. As Mr. Bale’s own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan!”
They followed up the praise by saying that “Bale’s Dark Knight era Batman is the best Batman ever.”
