But while most were enamored with the (not pregnant?) star, she also had her detractors -- and those detractions were serious business:

The Washington Afro-American newspaper spoke with Wade Montgomery and Rocky Twyman -- founders of a group called Pray at the Pump, that asks for, and they say receives, divine intervention in the price of gasoline -- about their concerns.

Twyman told The Afro that Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are "virtually destroying our youth...If you go on the Internet, you’ll see stories about how they’re both part of the Illuminati and you can see Jay-Z’s use of the Satanic triangle symbol when he performs."

The Afro reports youth around the Verizon Center mostly mocked the protesters. But Twyman told the newspaper he believed he'd gotten through to parents.

"We think they will be convicted that there is something wrong here," he said, "that there is some type of demonic forces that are a part of the Jay-Z-Beyonce syndrome.”
