God Hates Goths

God sure does love to hate:

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 satanism, 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 such as yourself about the dangers of the Gothic subculture, and the role that heavy satanic music plays in destroying lives (and brain-cells).

If you want to go on being lead around by your nose-rings, then ignore the message of salvation this website offers you. If you want to seek repentance and a new lease of life, that only Jesus Christ can offer you, now is your chance for recovery. I hope you take much hope and inspiration from this site.

And of course there is a section on what bands to avoid:

AC/DC: song Hell’s Bells, inspired “Night Stalker” serial killer,
pentagrams on album art (Highway to Hell), violent cover art (If You Want Blood You Got It), guitarist admitted to being ‘possessed’ while on stage.

Aerosmith: drug and alcohol abuse, equating sex and religion
on “Angel”

Black Sabbath: number of the beast, crucifixion imagery,
objectionable album art (Born Again, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath)

Jimi Hendrix: hypnotizing people through music, choking on own vomit, voodoo rhythms, rebellion, violence, “If 6 Was 9” used in interstitials

Led Zeppelin: backmasked messages and references to Pan on “Stairway to Heaven”, Zoso = number of the beast

24

For the past few months, me and the Cyni-wife haven’t been truly happy until our netflix delivery arrives with the latest 24 dvd. We innocently enough placed season one into the netflix queue one day without realizing that 24 is the tv equivalent of crack cocaine. Especially when seen on dvd. Broadcast tv forces you to watch it in small doses. It’s more like being at a wine tasting where you sip the wine and savor all the subtle nuances of each particular vintage. Watching 24 on dvd is more like being at a college kegger with somebody forcing a funnel down your throat and pouring each episode down your gullet.

This season is the first one I’m watching as it is broadcast and I need to vent. I’ll vent in the comments so there won’t be any spoilers for those who are still catching up to speed.
