“God Hates Goths”

WTF?!! Just saw this on another site. According to this moronic wacko, not only does “God hate Goths”, but “God hates retards, women, and Harry Potter”! Love the claim about being a “Peaceful Christian Organization”… Have fun posting on this one, folks!

“Welcome to the GodHatesGoths.com. The Official Website of the ‘Parents Against Goth’ Organisation. A Peaceful Christian Organisation set-up to warn Parents and Children about the dangers of getting involved in the sinister and violent Gothic subculture. This website is the result of 10 long years of painstaking research and investigation into teen Satanism, Self-harming, Wicca, and the twisted and disturbing world of Goth. This is an exciting time for all at PAG, This year marks our tenth anniversary, and what better way to celebrate a decade of speaking out against Satanism, helping children escape from Cults, lecturing in schools and Churches about the dangers of teen satanic culture, heavy metal, Wicca and Goth, than by firmly establishing our online presence. What we offer is ten year of experience in educating young people about the dangers of the Gothic subculture, and the role that heavy satanic music plays in destroying lives (and brain-cells).”

The War on the Unexpected

As I went through airport security, these ideas went through my mind:

“We’ve opened up a new front on the war on terror. It’s an attack on the unique, the unorthodox, the unexpected; it’s a war on different. If you act different, you might find yourself investigated, questioned, and even arrested — even if you did nothing wrong, and had no intention of doing anything wrong. The problem is a combination of citizen informants and a CYA attitude among police that results in a knee-jerk escalation of reported threats.”
