Random Goth test by the Catholic Church
« on: August 03, 2005, 12:26:09 PM »
I found this on the web.  I score 27!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 counseling, 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 nail polish.
-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 child may speak to evil spirits 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 Chocula 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.

Anyone agree with what it has to say. By the way this is something I found not an opinion.

One thing I think is ridiculously stupid is the part about " pursuing dangerous religions like philosiphy, Wicca etc."  Nearly all of them arent dangerous and accepted around the world.  Whoever wrote this needs to be a lot less prejudice.

Well I beg to differ as a no religion should be frowned upon and desribed as dangerous.

I have a 14 year old son beginning his teen years.  He likes to wear all black sometimes.  I don't care most of the time.  Black jeans, black t-shirt, so what?

However.... I love music, all music, including rock, bluegrass, some country, classical, gospel, but especially 'oldies' rock from the 60's and early 70's; my husband likes heavy metal in addition to those I listed.  We have CDs of Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Tool.  Some of those are not my particular favorites, but my husband is 50 years old and I don't tell him what to listen to.

But my son will NOT have those CDs in his room on 'repeat', listening to negative words over and over.  I do believe that to do this causes desensitization to whatever issue the song is about, be it suicide, murder or whatever.  Same with violent video games.  If someone plays a game now and then, there's nothing wrong with that.  But it seems an awful lot of kids are obsessed with things.  Obsessions about ANYTHING are not healthy.  

There's a word that is rapidly disappearing from the American vocabulary: MODERATION.

And as far as self-mutilation or suicide thoughts, these are mental health issues and need to be addressed in whatever way the parents believe is appropriate.  As long as progress is made with people suffering these illnesses, then the treatment must be the right one for that person.

Tolerance and mutual respect people,is the key word. No Wicca has waged a religous war against ''infidels'' or ''the faithless'' as of yet,so we'll have to continue assuming that it is not a dangerous religon. If you want my honest opinion,the only religon one should fear and despise is a creed that has been utterly subverted by mindless dogam and irrational suspicion of those who choose to follow another path. Only there does true evil exist,waiting to consume all who choose to embrace it.

Gothic is fun and I would prefer my son to be gothic than hip hop. At least gothic offers some (dark) spirituality ....

Why would a teenager need to go to a mental health centre for

1 sleeping in late
2 wanting time to themselves
3 wanting to be alone with their friends
4 expressing interest in sex
5 not wanting to go to church

how farked up is that?

Stevie,

I think your right!  One thing to keep in mind though most of this information is from old people (like me) observing things from the outside.  They do not see that most of the goth personae is one of a hundred ways a teen will look for their autonomous identity.  The old people see the potential danger of what lies ahead but don't give their sons and daughters enough credit to be careful.  On the other hand the teens see the old people's reaction, and get a kick out of it especially since they are mostly just hanging out, but ignore their wisdom.  

For me, it was a right of passage to get my parents all pissed and worried about my goings on.  I was into the punk/metal/thrash scene which the goth scene sort of grew from.  We listened to the Misfits, Ramones, Metallica, Suicidal Tendencies, GWAR, NWA, Body Count, 2LiveCrew etc. and part of the appeal was their dislike.  I still listen to those bands (just not around my kids!) and I'm a fully functioning adult (bite your tounge Voo! :P ).  

If we could solve the differences between the generations then what's next world peace?

Hey, it works for me!  I was a hippie.  I guess I still am, kind of.  

It seems to me that people are more 'labelled' now than they used to be, or maybe I just didn't pay any attention to them.  I don't like being labelled - I never fit in all that well anyway.

Oh, and I think it was MM who said that the Wiccan religion wasn't warlike; did you know that the U.S. Military declared Wicca a true 'religion' several years ago?  So you've got peaceful Wiccans fighting for our 'cause' in Iraq.  How screwed up is that?
