ElvisWorld: Religion

Elvis’ public image was the “shy humble Christian country boy” who wore capes and gold belts, the one at the Madison Square Garden Press Conference was in fact a trophy awarded to Elvis by the International Hotel for setting attendance records.

Elvis was raised in the Christian branch of the Abrahamic Trilogy (Jew, Christian, Muslim) and in the flavour Pentecostal.

This is a speaking in tongues, laying on hands charismatic group and being cramped into small wood churches in the American South – the heat and people packed in.

Church was early theatre.

Anyway, over his life many religions wanted to include him as a member, not just for the donations, but the association.

Elvis struggled largely because of the inhibitions instilled in religion and I think never respected his talent because of his belief in it as a gift, rather than a honed talent.

Anyway. Scientology failed to snag Elvis, but John Travolta got Priscilla and Lisa Marie into it.

The Osmonds have been bizarrely claiming Elvis was going to convert to Mormonism. Creepy Wholesome.

Elvis explored a range of religions, ancient and current.

Elvis Presley was a closet Pastafarian

Eating a limited range of foods, or eating the same few foods over and over is disordered eating, even while technically. it is every orderly and efficient.
