Christian Bale stole the 2019 Golden Globes when he accepted the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy and referred to Satan as influencing his take on Dick Cheney in “Vice.” “Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role,” the actor told the Globes audience, who promptly cheered and laughed at the jab. While Bale’s comments are proving divisive on social media, one group who absolutely approves of the comment is The Church of Satan.
“To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential,” the Church wrote on its social media pages. “As Mr. Bale’s own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan!”
