List made by some Catholic church in my area.
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. -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.
WHEN THE FUCK IS PHILOSOPHY A RELIGION??? I'm pretty sure that Catholics stole Pagan ideas....but okay.
So, according to this, nearly all teenagers are satanists? Yet another reason to loathe organised religion.
Expresses an interest in sex
Excuse me. I repeat, excuse me?! Is it now gothic to be interested in sex? Hey, that means Catholics are a dieing religion. They're not allowed to reproduce! I'm apparently gothic then. I use the internet/computer all day, i love RPGs, i always watch TV. Nice!

Not necessarily. They've just "gone astray from the Lord" (according to them).
Eats goth-related foods. Count Dracula cereal is an example of this.

Repent, heathen! :lol:
Miyamoto_Musashi;4593056Repent, heathen! :lol:
It's one of the reasons i don't like to be bound to a religion. I can't see the difference between religion, and dictatorship.:Puzzled: Reminds me of the antagonist from Timeshift.
I must be Dracula himself... Though I never eat his cereal... I personally prefer Lucky Charms and Fruit Loops. What the hell is wrong with all these psycho religious freaks? I have nothing against religion (Thought I am atheist), but this is going a little too far.
You all are going to hell for eating sweetened corn based cereal with a happy cartoon vampire on it. Also, sex is bad. FUCK YOU AND YOUR HORMONES AND INSTINCT YOU DIRTY SINNER YOU.
Hell doesn't exist, and reported for flaming

According to that list most teenagers (and therefor most of the world population since we all were teenagers once or still meet some of those characteristics) are astray rom the lord.
Teenagers are knwn to go through phases of questioning their parents, feeling insecure, experimenting with various things and such. I think the only good sign to one going astray would be if somebody said "I don't believe in god/I'm atheist". And the answer would be: What's the big deal aslong as the person has decent morals and abides the law?
Not to mention that finding a person who never masturbated is probably hard and remins me of monty pythons "every sperm is sacred" song.
As for the homosexual/bisexual thing, that's just offensive, short sighted (are there no homosexual or bisexual religious people? regardless if it's seen as a sin or not?) ad kinda ironic with the whole pedophile priest thing and such...
I'd view it as a either a nice atempt at comedy or some person who is a bit too extreme and/or has his head up his arse. Edit: Please mind the Pub standards of intelligent debate. No need to curse or spam with rather low quality (jokingly?) messages.
