This is an actual genuine announcement from a catholic church warning their members of the dangers they could face if their children become Goths. It’s hilarious yet also rather scary when you take into consideration that some people actually believe this shit.
How many of the criteria apply to you. I got 20! :D

------------------

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. 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 nailpolish.

-Wears any odd, silver jewelry or symbols. Some of these include:
reversed crosses, pentagrams, pentacles, ankhs or various
other
Satanic
worshipping 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.

-Dislikes sunlight or any other form of light. (This pertains to
vampires promoting the idea that His light is of no use.)

-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.

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 your local mental health center.

Are they talking about Chritianity and the Bible here? Lol.

-Frequently wears black clothing. Nuns and priests must be gothic then! :p

-Shows a declining interest in wholesome activities, such
as: the Bible, prayer, church or sports. :rolleyes: Wholesome activities? Gimme a break! But I guess going to a Christian music concert and swinging in a trance with your hands raised is a wholesome activity. :gigi:

-Complains of boredom. Cuz we all know that Bible is so exciting! Master writers of thriller wrote that one!! Lol.

I'll comment the rest later. Gotta eat some breakfast. :p

I enjoy how hindi and buddhism are goth, despite the fact that those to modes of thought don't even believe in any kind of satanic being.

I didn't even bother reading the whole thing. :blabla:

You know how Haku has an especially strong attraction to redheads? Well I have a similar attraction to "goth chicks", if you will. You know, some black eyeshadow, black hair preferred but not necessary, piercings other than ears/tattoos (preferably on the lower back area), black leather/frilly skirt with fishnet stockings....you know - kinda like Avril Lavigne in her new video. ;) Don't ask me why. It kinda sucks though, cause in my limited experience, the majority of these types are lesbians. :rolleyes: But then again, that's not so bad. :p

screw "St. Mary's Catholic Church" :mad:

Aw Dan, that is just classic!
I'm sending that list to my supervisor at work. He was a goth in his younger days and he's been forever resentful of the fact that he had to drop that image when he became an Accountant. You could say he's a frustrated goth. That list is gonna crack him up!

WTF???????

Since when is Philosophy a religion? Guess they teach Satanism at schools.

And I guess about 1/2 of the world population are goths. Yeah, those crazy Indian and Chinese goths.

Obviously philosophy isn't a religion. Christians are against it simply because it encourages free-thought.
We can't possibly have people thinking for themselves - it would render organised religion completely redundant. And what a travesty that would be! :rolleyes:
