The Tragic Life of Freddie Mercury

by David J. Stewart

The Spirit of Sodomy

"The end-times spirit of Sodom was also evident in the events surrounding THE DEATH OF FREDDIE MERCURY (real name Frederick Bulsara), lead singer for the rock group Queen. Mercury was bi-sexual, and the group flaunted immorality and rebellion against biblical laws. Many of Queen's hard-rocking songs perennially remain popular rock anthems in sports stadiums and other forums. These include "We Will Rock You," "We Are Champions," and "Another One Bites the Dust." Their song "We Are the Champions" is an unofficial anthem of the homosexual liberation movement. Many of their songs are filthy and vile. Freddie Mercury said, "We want to shock and be outrageous" (Circus, April 1974).

He whipped "concert audiences into a frenzy with erotic body contortions.  Their tours have featured snake charmers, strippers, transvestites, and a naked lady (Larson's Book of Rock, p. 179).  Drummer Roger Taylor said, "I'd love to own a whorehouse." The group staged an all-female nude bicycle race in 1978. Freddie Mercury died in November 1991 of AIDS. Five months later, 72,000 fans of this lascivious rock musician gathered for a memorial at Wembly Stadium. It was called the "Concert for Life" and featured Elton John, David Bowie, Annie Lennox, Axl Rose and other immoral, anti-Christ rock stars. It was estimated that ONE BILLION people viewed the event on television worldwide!" —David W. Cloud

"But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen" —Jude 20-25.

Freddie Mercury (real name — Frederick Farookh Bulsara), lead singer of the legendary rock band Queen, died of AIDS at only 45 years of age on November 24th, 1991.  How tragic!  It was alleged that Freddie Mercury had homosexual lovers all around the world.  One simply go no further than a simple web search to discover that Mercury was openly bisexual.  It is not surprising that Mr. Bulsara died because of AIDS.  Queen's music is idolized today by the homosexual community, with such hits as "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy."

False Religion

Even more tragic is the fact that Freddie Mercury was a follower of false religion called Zoroastrianism and not the Lord Jesus Christ.  The following is an account of Freddie Mercury's funeral...

"Just like Mercury himself, the occasion [of his funeral], which the singer had spent weeks planning in meticulous detail, was a bewildering mixture of flamboyance and secrecy, witnessing the collision of two very different worlds--the modern world of rock music and the ancient world of the Zoroastrian religion, in which Mercury had been brought up.

Zoroastrianism is one of the world's oldest and most exclusive religions. Founded by the prophet Zoroaster (or Zarathustra) in 600 B.C., it has only 120,000 members worldwide and just 6,000 in Britain. Its followers see life as a battle between two spirits, Spenta Mainyu, the "Bounteous Spirit," and Angra Mainyu, the "Destructive Spirit." Whichever one a Zoroastrian lives his life by determines where he or she goes to after death. The final resting place is the Zoroastrian equivalent to the Christian heaven or hell.

As Mercury's oak coffin was carried into the chapel, covererd in a satin sheet and topped with a single red rose, Zoroastrian priests, dressed in white muslin robes and caps, chanted traditional prayers to their god Ahura Mazda, also known as the Wise Lord, for the salvation of the singer's soul. Throughout the twenty-five minute service, conducted totally in the ancient Avestan langauge, the priests used no word of English other than commands to the forty mourners to stand and sit.

Mercury had insisted on his funeral being a private, low-key affair, and the magical ancient ceremony was attended only by extremely close friends and family, as he had wished. The singer's parents, Bomi and Jer Bulsara, wept throughout as did Mary Austin and Elton John. Among the other tearful mourners were sixties drummer turned impresario Dave Clark, the three remaining members of Queen, and Brian May's girlfriend, former EastEnders' soap star Anita Dobson.

Just after nine on that cold wintry morning, a gleaming black Rolls-Royce carrying the coffin in which Mercury's body lay drove slowly into the grounds of the West London crematorium in Kensal Rise." -- SOURCE: Rick Sky, The Show Must Go On: The Life of Freddie Mercury, Citadel Press/Carol Publishing Group: New York City, NY (1994), pages 8-9

Freddie Mercury spent weeks planning his own funeral, but failed to prepare his soul to meet God.  The Word of God plainly teaches that ONLY through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ can anyone go to Heaven.  Freddie Mercury placed in faith in false religion, and NOT upon Jesus Christ.  This is so tragic!  Read the following phrase from the above article again, "Zoroastrian priests, dressed in white muslin robes and caps, chanted traditional prayers to their god Ahura Mazda, also known as the Wise Lord, for the salvation of the singer's soul."  Freddie Mercury is not in Heaven according to the Bible, he is in Hell suffering.  Why?  Because he was a homosexual?  No!  It's because Freddie Mercury did not obey the Gospel of Christ...

"In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power." — 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9

God is not pleased by the death of the wicked...

"Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?" — Ezekiel 33:11

Riches Without God

Oh how foolish are the sinful and rebellious hearts of men and women against the Lord that created them!  Freddie Mercury left behind an estate valued at $15,500,000 to his family and friends.  Freddie lived a reckless life of sodomy, fornication, illegal drugs and materialism. 

Mercury died in London in his $4,000,000 home in 1991.  He carried none of his wealth beyond the grave.  He had such a beautiful voice, but used his talents for the devil.  How sad!  How tragic!  Where is Freddie Mercury now?  Hell!

My friend, you don't have to go to Hell.  Jesus shed His blood to pay for the sins of mankind.  I did not write this article to criticize Freddie Mercury.  I wrote this article to express two observations I've made about Mr. Mercury's life: first, a life of booze, immorality, and devilish music always end in judgment; and second, all of Mercury's fame, wealth, and friends cannot help help him escape the wrath of God. 

ALL Christ-rejecters go straight to Hell to be tormented in fire.  I say this with great sadness, but it is the TRUTH nonetheless.  I ask you to believe upon Jesus now as your Saviour.  The Biblical doctrine and reality of God's wrath has been abandoned in America's pulpits.  Psalm 7:11, “God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.”
