    I can't stop laughing at it. The sad thing is its probably something that the church really put out lol.

    -------

    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 Chocula 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.
    -Masturbates.
    -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.

    How is that different than the current world?
    Knew there was something funny about that Prince Charles fella.
    Everyone then?
    No comment :sleep:
    Everyone who meditates will speak to evil beings?
    Wow...
    Who would actually take their parents out with them?

    With whats said up there, 40-50 percent of the world is Gothic, maybe more.

    the church is right yet again... and there i was stupidly thinking that goths are cool....

    they are.

    whats more evil? a community in which most of the people waste all of their lives worshipping god (even though its not like they killed someone or anything, so why spend all your life doing this? whats so great about this god?) and trying to force thier own veiws and ways of life on other people (weaker people, like children who dont know any better and cant choose things for themselves) these people also disagree with everyones elses lifestyles and discriminate against other kinds people and make outragious claims.

    then theres the goths, people who choose not to live by society's norms and enjoy themselves through sociable events with each other and dont bother anyone else. purest of evil...

    Well I can't find any direct links as to its origin but I have found several sites that all posted this and all say that the source was a news letter from "St. Mary's Church".

    So maybe it is real...

    I was being serious actually, It pisses me off that anyone can have the nerve to put down one lifestyle/belief publically, based solely on their own lifestyle/beliefs. I know this was for a joke but I've seen a lot of real religious propaganda that all religions put out and it's just wrong. They don't have the answers, until they do they can keep their opinions to themselves. If I want to wear black, listen to marilyn manson and pierce my genitals then that's my decision, right?
