Ok, this is so offensive, but FUNNY how ignorant they are! When he said eating Count Chocula cereal was an indicator of being goth, I LOST IT! I literally fell over laughing.

Now, before people start going nuts on Christians, I just want to remind everyone that every religion, group, and culture has ignorant motherfuckers. There are good, true Christians and fake assholes just like any other religion.

Here's the text:
* This was handed out to parents by a church *

Is Your Child a Goth? Presented by St. Mary's Church

Listed below are some warning signs to indicate if your child may have gone astray from the Lord. Gothic (or goth) is a very obscure and often dangerous culture that
young teenagers are prone to participating in. The gothic culture leads young, susceptible minds into an imagined world of evil, darkness, and violence. Please seek immediate attention through counselling, prayer,
and parental guidance to rid your child of Satan's temptations if five or more of the following are applicable to your child.

-Frequently wears black clothing.

-Wears band and/or rock t-shirts.

-Wears excessive black eye makeup,lipstick or nail polish.

-Wears any odd silver jewelry or symbols.

-Shows an interest in piercings or tattoos.

-Listens to gothic or any other anti-social genres of music. (Marilyn Manson claims to be the anti-Christ, and publicly speaks against the Lord. Please discard any such albums IMMEDIATELY.)

-Associates with other people that dress, act or speak eccentrically.

-Shows a declining interest in wholesome activities, such as: the Bible, prayer, church or sports.

-Shows an increasing interest in death, vampires, magic, the occult, witchcraft or anything else that involves Satan.

-Takes drugs.

-Drinks alcohol.

-Is suicidal and/or depressed.

-Cuts, burns or partakes in any other method of self-mutilation.(This is a Satanic ritual that uses pain to detract from the light of God and His love. Please seek immediate attention for this at your local mental health center.)

-Complains of boredom.

-Sleeps too excessively or too little.

-Is excessively awake during the night.

-Demands an unusual amount of privacy.

-Spends large amounts of time alone.

-Requests time alone and quietness. (This is so that your chid may speak to evil sprits through meditation.)

-Insists on spending time with friends while unaccompanied by an adult.

-Disregards authority figures; teachers, priests, nuns and elders are but a few examples of this.

-Misbehaves at school.

-Misbehaves at home.

-Eats excessively or too little

-Eats goth-related foods. Count Dracula cereal is an example of this.

-Drinks blood or expresses an interest in drinking blood. (Vampires believe this is how to attain Satan. This act is very dangerous and should be stopped immediately.)

-Watches cable television or any other corrupted media sources. (Ask your local church for proper programs that your child may watch.)

-Plays videos games that contains violence or role-playing nature.

-Uses the internet excessively and frequently makes time for the computer.

-Makes Satanic symbols and/or violently shakes head to music.

-Dances to music in a provocative or sexual manner.

-Expresses an interest in sex.


-Is homosexual and/or bisexual.

-Pursues dangerous cult religions. Such include: Satanism,
Scientology, Philosophy, Paganism, Wicca, Hinduism and Buddhism.

-Wears pins, stickers or anything else that contains these various phrases: "I'm so gothic, I'm dead", "woe is me", "I'm a goth".

-Claims to be a goth.

If five or more of these apply to your child, please intervene immediately. The gothic culture is dangerous and Satan thrives within it. If any of these problems persist, enlist your child into your local mental health center.

Wiccans/Pagans don't even believe in the devil.

 I'm not trying to be a "blasphemy" type person but aren't the Christians the ones who forced their religion on other people and slaughtered many? Christians slaughered many "goths." No, I don't mean the mall goths of america or anything like that but I mean the old day real German or as the dictionary would describe them one of a Teutonic people who in the 3rd to 5th centuries invaded and settled in parts of the Roman Empire.

Even if you go to wikipedia.org you can see there is no mention of "Satan" anywhere. Sometimes people preach a little bit too much from what is coming from their minds when you really have to think about it: the god that they worship tells them not to judge others because it's not their job. Thou shall not kill, as well. But in the past many of the people of the Wiccan, Pagan, and other religions who didn't fall into Christianity got slaughtered by the same people.

 Now, the bloody history is what made me seperate myself. But other than that I'm a normal person.

It's kind of like that one dude saying the German Language is another version of Satan's language or something because of what Hitler did.

Since Greek Mythology is older I'm just going to have to go for the whole "You know, they kind of copied the story of Zeus and Hercules. The whole sending his son down to earth thing to interact with mortals." But the coming of Jesus is supposed to be the end of the world, and Hercules is a hero that slays monsters to protect the planet.

Yeah, I'll stick with my nonviolent religion.

Don't get me wrong, there are cool chrisitian, but the religion ... how warped it has become by most people isn't for me.
