AbbeySomeone: FTFA: "I used to love rock and then Jesus came into my heart and took it completely away".


He makes that Jesus guy sounds like a real jerk.

If God didn't want us to rock, he wouldn't have invented Bon Scott.

I grew up in rural IL, and knew a bunch of people like this. Their mentality is that everything is demonic unless it is expressly Christian, and secular music in particular is bad.

But it's not just music, it's everything beyond the pale of churchiness. My best friend from childhood had parents like this, and he couldn't listen to music or the radio, watch TV, go to movies, play video games, or have too much fun doing anything else. Whatever we did for fun, there was always the risk that his parents would seize on it as potentially demonic, have a talk with him and then tell him that God didn't want him to play cops and robbers or tag or whatever.

What you need to understand about this phenomenon is that it's not one of those crazy cults where the women wear identical ankle-length dresses. Nor is it a particularly rare strain of extremism. It's actually a widespread belief among ordinary suburbanites; your neighbors may be like this, and you many never know until your kid gets a complex from playing with their kid.

Religion is a disease. I swear, its gotta be something like a Virus. Or a Prion like Jacob-Crutzfeld that does this to people. It's happened to a couple of my old friends. Its like they wake up one morning, and actively decide to turn into the absolute worst, most mealymouthed pedantic bible-thumping cheesedicks you can imagine. One walked away from a marriage, two teenage kids and a really decent job to move into some Baptist mission thing in northern California. His wife said it was literally overnight that he went from being a normal guy to a religious fanatic.

When he came back after being gone for two months or so, he preached and preached and cajoled them into finding Jesus with him or they were going to burn for all eternity. She filed for divorce that week. I still see his oldest boy around once in a while. He tells me that his pop calls every few months to berate him for being the sinner/idolater/satanist/what have you and nobody can talk to the guy anymore.

It's a disease.

I feel sorry for this girl. She's going to move out, get a life of her own and her parents are going to be utterly worthless to her. They might even cut her off from contact or refuse to acknowledge her accomplishments. Poor kid.

"I used to have fun, then Jesus came into my heart and took it completely away."

"I used to be a cool guy, then Jesus came into my heart and made me a controlling asshat."

FTFA: "We came to Christ, me and my wife did, back in 2010," Gary Richie said. "We don't support the beat. We don't support that demonic sound and the repetition."

Why are reborn Christfags such Douchbags?

So I guess "Onward Christian Soldiers" is also out of the question. That's got a pretty good back beat. And as far as repetition goes, "God in Three Persons" is right up there.

A conservative fundamentalist religion, is there anything it can't hate?

I think Christian music has gotten much better over the past few years.
I'm just glad people don't think Creed is a Christian band any more.

The guy in the article is a doofus - I used to follow the Grateful Dead all around the country. After I was born again, I still listen to their music. I do miss farking the hippie chicks though - but not the long under arm hair.

I'd say Cristian music sounds equally demonic and repetitive.

That's one of the saddest things I've ever read.

I don't approve of the listed songs either, but not for religious reasons, only because they're shiate.
