Christian Bale thanked the man down under for his inspiration after winning the Best Actor award for "Vice," but the official worshippers of the Dark Lord think the star is being a bit modest.
Bale scored a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his portrayal of former Vice President Dick Cheney. During his victory speech, the actor proclaimed, "Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for playing this role."
The Church of Satan naturally responded, saying, "To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential."
The Church continues, "As Mr. Bale's own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting," adding, "Hail Christian Hail Satan!"
