rebuttal of sorts...
and WITCHCRAFT: GOTH culture is NOT anti-Christian. Just
because someone is not YOUR religion it DOESN'T mean they are
anti-anything. Many of the gothic songs and motifs are not
SATANIC. Some people believe otherwise. Often the music is about
emotions or spirituality. Gothic music is not based to
any specific religion. Some people identify themselves as VAMPIRES
and wear fangs or colored contact lenses. This doesn't mean
they are 'gothic'. Some people also practice WITCHCRAFT ("WICCA")
- this DOES NOT mean they are gothic. It COULD mean they practice
a different religion than you do. No ONE religion is
the only correct religion.
PEOPLE use drugs (even devout christians), and donít let anyone
tell you differently. Well-known deadly drugs such as heroin
and marijuana, as well as exotic "designer" drugs, are often
used as by all types of people. This includes businessmen, housewifes,
mothers, fathers, and former ESPN employees. Drug use is not
bound to any specific type of music listener.
All kinds of people (even christians) can be homosexual
or bixexual. This has nothing to do with ones taste in music.
Sexualty is not a 'perversion'. If you believe this is so, then
why do you think that?? Forcing YOUR own beliefs
onto someone else is may be dangerous to the minds, bodies and
souls of the people you interract with. Homosexuality is not
a 'crime'. Why do you think that it is?
CULTURE OF VIOLENCE: People in general can become violent
and intolerant of others - this is not based on a favorite
music genre. Some people like to 'blame' violence on external
factors (as if people are not in control of their what they
do). 'THIS made me violent'. 'THAT made me violent'.
Is it possible that a hateful person lives in a hateful world
of their own creation, while loving people live in a loving
working on some better resources. Send 'em if you have 'em.
