Elvis Presley - will he be the focus for an emerging religion?
Consider:
- association with the Sun (records)
- message to the world: generosity, charity, racial harmony, humbleness, sexual freedom, creativity and Don't be Cruel
- many inner circle have expereinced infighting and wrote contradictory books about Elvis
- sacred symbols: guitars, teddy bears, hound dogs, blue suede shoes, scarves
- scarves are like blessings
- impersonators are priests spreading the Elvis gospel
- Graceland is a holy pilgramage place
- winter holiday (Jan 8 - his birthday and close to old xmas)- summer holiday - August 16 - close to harvest end
- stories of healing sick during his life
- after death sightings
- people dress like, have shrines in their homes, hold conventions and more
so, could this be the making of a future religion?
or can we take a lesson from this and think about how other religious leaders/prophets may be been in their lives, versus how they were portrayed after
