So philosophy is bad? Of course! The bible says that using your brain is bad so it must be true. Of course it also condones rape >_>

Goths aren't annoying. Some of the REAL cults like Jehovah's witnesses are. I would guess the second of the two are the ones doomed to hell. Since I don't believe in hell, I will have to take things into my own hands.

I assumed that Ink Rose was talking about the pCm's who do believe this.

For example: My mom has nearly disowned me because I go to college. Higher education is bad because it secularizes you. Thinking for yourself is bad because the devil has control of your mind.

Listen to your pastor and what he/she has to say and that's all you need in life. Don't question. Questions are of the devil.

Jesus will be back any day now so there's no need for higher education or thinking on your own.

I am the Uber-goth. That list frightens the **** out of me. It's BAD for teenagers to be interested in sex? How do these pCms intend to continue their church, might I ask? Cloning?

EDIT: Removed "Is homosexual/bisexual" from the list that applies to me.

I know there are pCm's who believe that. But Ink Rose said "the Bible." I don't think she, or the pCm's, can actually point to a scripture, in any translation, that says using your brain is bad.

Discouraging education is hardly a universal practice among Christians.

Conversely, I know some stereotypically goth kids who consider emo basically goth-lite.

And that is the problem with basing your identity around a useless aesthetic. Fortunately, most people grow out of this.

ETA: Laz, what is wrong with that? Not every Uncle Bubba is a pedophile. I spent all kinds of unsupervised time alone with older male relatives. Or did I miss your point?

Honestly, I think I'm rather partial to my goth/emo/punk students. When it comes to things like symbolism, metaphor, double entendre, or social commentary, they're all over it. I've had the "dumb jock" stereotype proven wrong many times over, but the freaky kids just seem to be more introspective. They're not afraid to be smart (if you can get them to talk), and many of them are rather cheerful, warm, compassionate people. My 7 year old is already showing freaky tendencies (obsessed with fake tattoos, black clothes, and sappy emo music. asks every day when I think she might grow some boobs. I tell her to worry about losing that tooth, first) and I'm definitely ok with that. She walks to her own beat.

You probably missed what "going out with" means in the UK. It's approximately equivalent to "dating", although this is one of those things where the words never quite match properly because the culture itself seems to be different.

No, you're over thinking it, Trollface. It's even easier.

An emo listens to Rites of Spring, a goth listens to Skinny Puppy.

Agreed that it isn't universal, but plenty of pCms believe that "secular" edumacation is bad, because it corrupts the mind with all the "incorrect secular" views of the world (usually referred to as "lies of the Devil"), like evolution. (ergo, they do discourage "secular" education)

ETA: by "they discourage it" I mean the specific pCms I am referring to, not Christians in general.

Oh and the using your brain is bad is a joke from the Reduce Shakespeare's Companys Bibl;e CD,
http://www.reducedshakespeare.com/bible.html

And I can't rememeber what the one character actually says. Something like he who increaseth knowlege increaseth sorrow? Unfortunately I am horrible at remembering which verse it is. It;s a comedy CD, so... [Big Grin]

Austin: What?
AMtthew: YEAH it does Austin! The Bible says that using your brain is bad!
...
Austin; Yeah, Cain and Abel, that's a REALLY happy story
Matt: YEAH IT IS AUSTIN! Apparently you didn't read it! Like when Cain takes Abel out and Abel things he's about to be killed. And Cain raises up two tickets to the land of milk and honesy where they get to ride the ponies and get sick on cotton candy but when they get home their mother isn't angry and kisses them goodnight.
Austin:... Is that the only research material you used?...
Matt: And then it started to rain.
Reed and Austin: A-huh
Matthew: And everyone swam off to the land of milk and honey... and they find out that Cotton candy is the opium of the masses. And their mother controls the means of production! And she comes and kisses them all goodnight HAHAHAHAHA!!!
Austin: Wow, sounds like Matt's medication just kicked in.

Maybe someone should remind the older generation of parents that when they were teenagers they probably had a similar "You know your kid is..." posted around.

My mum's gen was beware the evil flower children, pot smoking, LSD dropping hippy runaways...

My gran's gen was beware the...ok, nevermind...her gen had their youth stolen by a despot called Hilter...

My great gran's was beware the evil, wanton women who show a bit of ankle and gasp...show a knee or two...or worse smoke cigarettes!

With my kid it was beware that your child may be a mallrat or was it that they were being recruited by the gay community or no, I'm sure it was beware your could be a preppy was sent around too...

My gen probably had my parents warned off that I was being recruited by the leftist, radical, separtist, ball crunching, lesbian feminists and my brothers were at risk of becoming SNAGs (or was it DINKS, KINKs or YUPPies).

My mum's gen was beware the evil flower children, pot smoking, LSD dropping hippy runaways...

My gran's gen was beware the...ok, nevermind...her gen had their youth stolen by a despot called Hilter...

My great gran's was beware the evil, wanton women who show a bit of ankle and gasp...show a knee or two...or worse smoke cigarettes!

With my kid it was beware that your child may be a mallrat or was it that they were being recruited by the gay community or no, I'm sure it was beware your could be a preppy was sent around too...

My gen probably had my parents warned off that I was being recruited by the leftist, radical, separtist, ball crunching, lesbian feminists and my brothers were at risk of becoming SNAGs (or was it DINKS, KINKs or YUPPies).

Now one fine night they leave the pool hall
headin' for the dance at the Armory
Libertine men and scarlet women and ragtime
Shameless music that'll grab your son, your daughter
into the arms of a jungle animal instinct- massteria!
Friends, the idle brain is the devil's playground, trouble!

All my dress slacks are black -- it's the only color allowed by my employer's dress code that isn't asking for stains. Does this mean we're a branch of Hell? [Wink]

After all, no kid ever wanted to study for a test without distractions.

(And the people this is aimed at should remember that Jesus encouraged private prayer -- he told the disciples to leave him alone in Gethsemane and several other times.)
