Katolu: xanadian: 1983 called, it wanted its manufactured outrage back...No kidding. It's played by middle-aged professional family guys now.
Because People in power are Stupid: He was probably referring to the cartoon.[2.bp.blogspot.com image 742x572]Stars like Willie Ames and Donny Most really didn't have a career after this flop.
Kibbler: I remember back in the late 80's, some wacko church announced an event for everyone to bring in all of the albums, books, and other evil paraphernalia of that most decadent and horrible of Satanic cultural icons...Mr. Ed.No really. Mr Ed.And it was no joke either. The pastor fervently believed that Mr. Ed was sending Satanic messages to kids. A character from a TV show that, even then, had been off the air for 30 years.And there was a rally and a bonfire, and hundreds of people came, and they all had Mr. Ed junk.It was at that point that any slender remaining faith I had in the non-idiocy of humanity evaporated.
Lord Fluffy: Pat Robertson:Failing his save vs. personal delusion for decades.
Jument: When I was in high school I was very into D&D and other RPGs. At the time there was a media backlash, one of the first ones probably. At the time we had a house cleaner in once a week. One day my Mom said "the house cleaner found your D&D books, she was horrified and told me I need to make you stop playing". I was quite shocked. Then she said "so I fired her".
tortilla burger: D&D teaches valuable life lessons. I've learned that it's better to cast magic missile at the darkness rather than curse it.Or something.
Facetious_Speciest: What if I'm playing a LG cleric of Yahweh? Still evil?
xanadian: 1983 called, it wanted its manufactured outrage back...
dahmers love zombie: [i.imgur.com image 468x240]See, people? Literally.
keypusher: FarkinHostile: I stand corrected on a point. Gooding was buried in Newport News. I was told his hometown in SC. That's what happens when you celebrate during a funeral instead of going to it.Hold on, "you were told"? You don't know? You also said "you can go look at his farking grave, since that is where he was from, learned his trade, registered his multiple luxury cars, and was buried."All of which is also nonsense, as far as I can tell. Did you just google the guy to use him in this thread and got a little careless? I mean, he practically destroyed your life, yet everything you say about him is false.
keypusher: Not too challenging, evidently, if growing up in a medium-size town in upstate South Carolina 30 years ago is all it takes.
Lando Lincoln: dahmers love zombie: [i.imgur.com image 468x240]See, people? Literally.What kind of DM doesn't allow a saving throw against traps?LAME.
FarkinHostile: I LIVED that shiat for 7 years, forced to go to a Pentecostal church and school. The "Pastor" was a fire and brimstone southern baptist trained evangelical. Everything those two folks above said happened to me in one way or another. D&D, ALL rock music, ALL TV shows were satanically inspired and if you listened/played with them you were on your way to burn in hell for all eternity.You know jack shiat about fundamental christian cults. WE do.
eudemonist: Gotta disagree with Pat on this one. D&D helped me _find_ God.
Anderson's Pooper: I can count three ordained ministers that were in my college D&D group.
The Muthaship: keypusher: Paging The Muthaship....Word.That sh*t never happened either.These preacher anecdotes are so cliche`, I keep expecting Keving Bacon to dance his way into this thread./I dislike preachers more than anyone on here//still not buying it
Aidan: RatMaster999: digitalrain: orclover: D&nD has created at least 1 life. Wife an I met at a D&D game.My husband and I did too.My wife and I did, too. Stole her from the DM.Semi-ditto. I definitely thought the DM was hot. Never did get anything good in the game by sleeping with him though. Still don't get anything. Bastard ran a homebrew campaign set at the 1889 Paris World's Fair last year and I didn't get to play. Frozen marbles in the bed time... :)
odinsposse: Rhypskallion: If he cared about his viewers, he would tell them to stay away from alcohol. With alcohol, there are decades of statistics showing the lives that have been destroyed.That all remind me, I want to go to a D&D game on Friday. What type of beer should I bring?[bythepint.com image 680x510]
Dixon Cider: I can't wait till he dies and is very disappointed!If not... I hope he is eternally assraped, rape-rape style, for all the lives this POS has destroyed with his ignorant and bigoted words.How many kids committed suicide or lived in mental anguish because their parents were listening to what this taintwad said?He ranks up there with any destructive religious zealots in history...
Felgraf: Arachnophobe: FelgrafIt's really the best D&D movie ever made. (And they may be working on a followup? Can't recall)
tnpir: Pat Robertson? You mean he isn't dead and spooning with Falwell in the seventh circle of Hell?
Silverstaff: The Pastor made it clear that unless I brought in all my D&D books and "satanic idols" to be burned at the Church and confessed and repented in front of the Church that I was secretly a Satanist among them and repented that sin, I wouldn't be welcome at that Church anymore.
BafflerMeal: Eddie T. Head: downstairs: jigger: Is he having flashbacks to 1978? This is what they were saying back then. Also Knights In Satan's Service.All Children, Devil's ChildrenI remember it being Anti Christ/Devil's Children.We Are Satin's People was another one.After Christ, Devil Comes.
gilgigamesh: Katolu: xanadian: 1983 called, it wanted its manufactured outrage back...No kidding. It's played by middle-aged professional family guys now.My group consists of 7 guys. 5 of us are married, 4 with kids.We're all in our thirties and forties, mostly with advanced degrees.Thursday nights we get tore up on fine weed and craft beers, order pizza and run thru Temple of Elemental Evil, using 1st edition rules./yeah! Its thursday!
Summer Glau's Love Slave: No arrow to the knee reference yet?/Y'all be slippin'
downstairs: Wow, Pat. Did you fly back to 1984 or something?Damn, I haven't heard a D&D/Satanism reference in like 25 years.Blast from the past.
Antimatter: neongoats: Facetious_Speciest: What if I'm playing a LG cleric of Yahweh? Still evil?YHWH is at BEST lawful neutral with evil tendencies. On a good day.Old testament, I dunno, i'd go more with Lawful evil. NT, however, would be neutral good I think.
Random Anonymous Blackmail: At first I was a elven thief, it was a gateway to burglary and then grand theft auto.My bag of holding was often holding weed.
thismomentinblackhistory: I accidentally hit a button on my car radio and heard 30 seconds of a Metallica song -- did I just worship Satan?
