The "Satanic Pentagram"? Shut up as*holes. If you took one look at your joke of a religion, it is obvious that the pentagram was for a time, a Christian symbol representing the 5 senses or the 5 wounds of Christ.

Religion: hypocrisy at its finest.

I can't believe I'm defending 50 Cent.

co-signed!

50 Cent can wear what he wants, but why does he wear a cross? It's obviously not something he believes in or lives his life by. Is it just a fashion statement?

Christians used the pentagram to represent Christ's five wounds, and often adorned it on jewelry and battle armor. It was mostly popular in Christianity until around the late medieval time (~1300-1500 or so) and was seen as a symbol that was just a little "less" than the cross if that makes sense.

The Christian pentagram also had a resurgence during the Renaissance period in Europe but I'm not familiar or informed enough to really discuss it in this era.

Should he wear the star of David instead? Christians do not own a patent on the symbol of the cross and have no right to be crying about a piece of jewelry.

I'm a Christian as some of you know, and looking at that statement, I gotta say the person who said it has a lot more to learn about what it means to be a real Christian. I mean, did you really expect 50 Cent to grant such a request when you call him a Satanist? Granted, I don't appreciate 50 Cent's lyrics, but not everything anti-God or vulgar is Satanic. Some people are just against God of the concept of God. That's one thing I've never respected about church folk, they forget we as humans often times don't need Satan's help, we can do bad all by ourselves. At any rate, if I met 50 on the street there are much better ways to make such a request.

What was the point of the question, to actually reach 50 and reason with him hoping he'd change for the better, or was it just to take a jab at someone for wearing something you put too much stock on? That wasn't a request, it was his attempt at making a statement, one that we really could've done without.


But even with that, my relationship with Christ doesn't live or die based on bearing Cross symbol, whether it's the one in the church or on someone's neck or a tatoo. Many people wear crosses and don't believe in Jesus, so to them it's not much more than bling. Others though think having a cross means they've got Jesus in their life ,Christians and non-Christians alike, well what if that joint gets stolen or ruined? What, Jesus is out of your life now? It's jewelry, that's all. One day it will get tarnished or thrown away, so why all that drama over it either way?
