Now, we all know the inverted cross for what its used for - pissing off Christians, artistic expression, giving annoying metal heads something to rally behind, etc.

Buuuuut, the Inverted Cross is actually a sign of extreme devotion to Christianity.

Its actually the personal trademark of Saint Peter, the first Pope, and one of the most revered figures in Catholicism. When Peter was crucified he asked to be crucified upside down because he didn't feel worthy of dying the same way as Jesus.

As a result, many true, hardcore Catholics actually consider the inverted cross to be a more acceptable thing to attach to wear than the normal Crucifix.

Also, its on the Pope's pope-throne of pimpy pope-ness.

Swag.

I don't know if Tyler, The Creator knew that, or whatever.

Either way, I understand the way he intends to use it, so don't bitch because you learned something new today.

I'm by no means religious, but its just something I remember learning and felt like sharing it. I know why its used and the meaning behind it, but I just felt like throwing out some history.

Agree..! Even At Its High Point The Shit Was Still Lame, Now Its Just Irrelevant To Our Everyday Lives...Unless "GOD" Makes A Twitter & Starts Explaining Shit People Are Gonna Care Less & Less About "Religion"

It's priceless when people assume that because your Atheist you worship the Devil, but they don't realize that an Atheist doesn't believe in God or the Devil.

i've been educatin people on this for TIME it seems, some christian behind the counter in Branded Bargains the other week told me it "wasn't about" my cross being upside down on my necklace - didn't feel like ruining his day of him thinking he's a devote christian but not knowing shit.
i assume tyler WOULD know though, like the lyrics outta goblin is it, where it's like "thats a triple three six don't that mean he a devil worshipper coz i'm too ignorant to do some research" apparently the real number of the devil is something like 616 or something, i cba to do the research though.
i have a small inverted cross on my ankle & an inverted cross necklace, but i've been wearing/drawing inverted crosses since i was 12.
cool story bro.
