[x] I found something on someone's xanga that made me laugh really hard.
This is a newsletter that St. Mary's chruch in Colorado Springs sent out...
If your child is a Gothic, Reform Through the Lord! 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. [[ummm...that's how the real world is lady...]] 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. [[o man...strike one for me already!]]
-Wears band and/or rock t-shirts. [[what the hell is wrong with DC TALK?!?!? They're a "band". I can't wear those shirts??? Isn't this a freak'in free country?!?!]]
-Wears excessive black eye makeup, lipstick or nail polish. [[damn...]]
-Wears any odd, silver jewlery or symbols. Some of these include: reversed crosses, pentagrams, pentacles, ankhs or various other Satanic worshipping symbols. [[Pfft...if it looks good...I'll wear it!]]
-Shows an interest in piercings or tattoos. [[damn...looks like I've already fallen from grace.]]
-Listens to gothic or any other anit-social genres of music. (Marilyn Manson claims to be the anit-christ, and publicly speaks agaisnt the Lord. Please discard any such albums IMMEDIATELY.) [[If parents are gonna take away stuff from their kids...why'd they buy it for them anyway??? And if the kid bought it...o well, it's his/hers to buy!]]
-Associates with other people that dress, act or speak eccentrically. [[o so now I can't choose my own friends??? I know well enough to know that if they're a bunch of dicks, I'm not hanging out with them! Idiots...]]
-Shows a declining interest in wholesome activities, such as: the Bible, prayer, chruch or sports. [[Ehh...I like sports...^_^]]
-Shows an increasing interest in death, vampires, magic, the occult, witchcraft or anything else that involves Satan. [[it's people like them that think Harry Potter should be banned from schools...idiots...]]
-Takes Drugs [[what does that have to do with Satan?]]
-Drinks alcohol. [[whooo!! PARTY!!!]]
-Is suicidal and/or depressed. [[o...so now I can't be sad anymore because it's against the Lord???]]
-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.) [[Yes...because God's love is so beautiful it hurts...]]
-Complains of boredom. [[that has me written all over it]]
Sleeps too excessively or too little.<>-Is excessively awake during the night. [[I'm an owl! Hoot hoot!]]
-Dislikes sunlight or any other form of light. (This pertains to vampires promoting the idea that His light is of no use.) [[Here we go with the vampires again...]]
-Demands an unusual amount of privacy.
-Spends large amounts of time alone.
-Requests time alone and quietness. (This is so that your child may speak to evil spirits through meditation.) [[WTF?!?!]]
-Insists on spending time with friends while unaccompanied by an adult. [[you have got to be kidd'in me...so now I can't go to the mall without adult supervision??? Screw that!]]
-Disregards authority figures; teachers, priests, nuns and elders are but a few examples of this. [[Pfft...rules sux]]
-Misbehaves at school. [[Yay...I'm a good little girl for once...]]
-Misbehaves at home. [[darn..]]
-Eats goth-related foods. Count Dracula cereal is an example of this. [[Gosh...back with the vampires again?!?! And how dare you mock the chocolately goodness of Dracula Puffs!!! xD]]
-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.) [[no...the parents are just gonna sit and watch their children suck the blood out of small animals to get closer to Satan. *sarcasm* BAH! Idiots!]]
-Watches cable television or any other corrupted media sources. (Ask your local chruch for proper programs that your child may watch.) [[Awww...no DBZ?? No Dark Angel?? No Buffy? Haha...]]
-Plays video games that contains violence or role-playing nature. [[Noooo!!! Not my Zelda and Kingdom Heart games!!!]]
-Uses the internet excessively and frequently makes time for the computer. [[next thing you know they'll be saying cell phones connect you to hell]]
-Makes Satanic symbols and/or violently shakes head to music. [[*violently shakes head to Every Mother's Nightmare's I Hate Myself. Killer song folks!]]
-Dances to music in a provocative or sexual manner. [[freak dance anyone??]]
-Expresses an interest in sex. [[Pfft...how do you think we make babies???]]
-Is homosexual and/or bisexual. [[o god...you HAVE to be fucking kidding me. I know it's against the christan religion to be gay, but omfg. I'm am soooooo against that last one. UG! Now I feel like hitting something...-_-'']]
-Pursues dangerous cult religions. Such include: Satanism[[I read a book on that...it's scary!]], scientology, philosophy, paganism, wicca, hinduism and buddism.
-Wears pins, stickers or anything else that contains these various phrases: "I'm so goth, I'm dead", "woe is me", "I'm a goth". [[Haha...I want a "woe is me" button! That'd be awesome! *searches ebay*]]
-Claims to be a goth. [[I'm a goth...*cough* Hahahaha!!!]]
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 you local mental health center. [[O so now you're gonna send all da goths to the nut house eh??? Man...someone otta send whoever thought up some of this ridiculous accusations into the nut house. JEEZ]]

[x]Well...that certainly was interesting. Idiots...I agree with some of the things...like drugs and the like. But Uggg...the whole gay thing got me mad. I'm not gay...but I at least respect those who are AND will support my gay friends as equally as I would my straight friends. GEEZ. IDIOTS the lot of 'em.
[x] Haha...when I was hanging out with my friends...Johnny (he's my swishy friend ^_^) said to his boyfriend, "If my love was like a lollipop...would you suck it?" And then Cain (that's Johnny's bf) said "I don't think it'd fit in my mouth."
[x] xDDDDD O man...those guys crack me up soemtimes. Makes me wanna have a boyfriend. *emo tear* Haha...well, it's 1:30 am. Better get some rest so I can wake up and watch Yu-Gi-Oh. YAAAAY! I'm so happy that's it Saturday tomorrow! Or today...no school...and Saturday morning cartoons with Late Night Anime afterwards. Yippe! And I'm kidnapping my friend Si Si to go to borders and get more manga. I'm thinking of getting her Gravitation Vol. 7 for her cause she's been super nice to me since my mom and I had this arguement. GAH...need sleep now so nighty nighty.
I write too much when I'm high on pixie sticks...
