Christian gospel singer Natalie Grant, who was nominated for two Grammy Awards and was initially excited to be at the big event, walked out of the Grammys after witnessing performances that even secular media outlets like E! Online said were occult in nature, such as Katy Perry's witchcraft ceremony dubbed "Satanic" by many.
Grant, who received the Gospel Music Association's Dove Award for Female Vocalist of the Year four consecutive years (2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009), and again in 2012, Tweeted in two back-to-back posts
"We left the Grammy's early. I've many thoughts, most of which are probably better left inside my head. But I'll say this: I've never been more honored to sing about Jesus and for Jesus. And I've never been more sure of the path I've chosen."
After Grant's Tweets, several media outlets immediately began to speculate on the Nashville resident's motives for leaving the Grammys early, and the usual suspects began their boring litany of accusing Grant and all Christians of hypocrisy and even for hating gays.
Never mind that Katy Perry apparently tried to summon Satan, that Beyonce and Jay-Z performed a risqué, sexually explicit duet, and that other performers did things that went way beyond good taste. Even though Grant left before the strange politically-motivated group gay "wedding" publicity stunt that took place during a nationally televised music awards ceremony, intolerance is what she was accused of by websites that love to hate Christians in general and Christian performers in particular.
Grant purposely kept her reasons for leaving to herself, but several websites cleverly read her mind, perhaps using Katy Perry's Satanic ritual ceremony to become telepaths, and they judged Grant based on pure speculation. I guess the devil made them do it.
However, former Alabama football player AJ McCarron seems to agree with Grant and others who found the Grammys sadly lacking in taste, common sense and decency. He tweeted that the Grammys "seem to be really demonic?? Looks like there is a lot of evil in the world."
And Grant later responded to her critics about leaving the Grammys on her Facebook page.
Congratulations to Natalie Grant and AJ McCarron for saying what a lot of us felt. The Grammys fall further down the rabbit hole of depravity each year. And congratulations to all the 2014 Gospel Grammy Award winners.
