Upside-down crosses

If there’s one thing I hate about horror movies, it’s the “demons will turn your crosses upside-down!” trope. 

Y’all know what I’m talking about:

Except apparently demons have the same understanding of how Christianity works as the author of My immortal, because guess what? Turning a cross upside-down is not blasphemy. 

It’s called a St. Peter’s cross, and it’s a symbol of Christian humility. That demon just made the room more Catholic.

Also, guess who else doesn’t have a problem with upside-down crosses?

Me being haunted
  • Demon: Flips all my crosses upside-down
  • Me: Actually, that's St. Peter's cross, a true satanic cross is really-
  • Demon: Holy shit what a fucking loser

Satanic Nun #1: This…This is so blasphemous!

Satanic Nun #2: I love it!

Satanic Nun #3: So does St. Peter. The inverted cross symbolizes his-

Satanic Nun #1: Shut it, OK? You wanted pentagrams and corpse paint and we compromised on inverted crosses and blurry eyes-

Satanic Nun #3: Blurry eyes? The red eyes from a camera flash are more Satanic than blurry eyes! We look like the blurry eyed St. Peter fan club!

Satanic Nun #1: Are you finished? We all agreed on the blurry eyes, because many of us had concerns about the corpse paint. Sister Candace was worried it might not come off-

Satanic Nun #2: I was.

Satanic Nun #3: Shut up, Candace! I don’t think you’re really a Satanic nun!

Satanic Nun #2: I am too. I have listened to and enjoyed the heavy metal band Darkthrone.

Satanic Nun #3: Name one Darkthrone song.

Satanic Nun #2: Ummm…“This Jesus Must Die”.

Satanic Nun #3: That’s a song from Jesus Christ Superstar!

Satanic Nun #2: Well, it sounded like heavy metal to me!
