    What it says here http://stason.org/TULARC/music-bands/ozzy-osbourne...

    As Black Sabbath made news, a group of Satanists asked them to play at

    their "night of Satan" at Stonehenge. They refused. The head witch of

    England, Alec Sanders who was a regular fan of Sabbaths, informed them that

    these Satanists had placed a hex on the band members. Ozzy asked his father

    to make aluminum crosses, which he did, and then had them blessed. They

    wore these crosses 24 hours a day for protection. The cross remains a well

    known Black Sabbath symbol even to this day. You see, Black Sabbath as

    Satanic and dark as the name sounded, had nothing to do with the devil when

    they chose their name.

    I think he still believes they are some kind of 'good luck'. The NY Times in 1992 reported that he was a member of the Church of England and prayed before each show. http://www.nytimes.com/1992/09/23/garden/at-tea-wi...

    These days we're aware of all kinds of religions, but Christianity is probably what he had most exposure to growing up and is what he best relates to. Many people who are C of E are 'nominal' only. But I think he believes in God.

    Ozzy, his contributions to heavy metal go well beyond Dio. He has spanned generations and multiple decades, had his own reality show, promotes new bands with Ozzfest and will forever be immortalized in rock history. The best Dio album is Heaven & Hell on eight track cassette. Best Black Sabbath Album is Parinoid. Heaven & Hell Sign of the Southern Cross Mob Rules Turn Up the Night Voodoo Snowblind by Styx Crazy Train Holy Diver Bark at the Moon Shot in the Dark Flying High Again

    He's a member of the Church of England. Some of his songs even have Christian ideals and meanings, for example After Forever with Black Sabbath.
