I believe the standard Christian creed that you have to accept Jesus to go to Heaven and blah blah blah, but I'm not going to kill anyone who doesn't. After all, murder is a sin. You don't hear that coming out of those girls' mouths, do you? That's just one difference, so please refrain from the comparison.

Anyways, does this count toward the fantasy skank competition since they look like the Olsen twins?


You're misunderstanding my post somewhat. I wasn't comparing belief in white supremecy and Nazism to Evangelical Christianity, I was comparing two completely seperate cases of children being brainwashed into closed-minded opinions that they will undoubtably strictly believe, defend, and apply throughout their lives. I'm not saying both (Nazism and E.C.) are similar in any way beyond the fact that they are closed minded and exclusive in their own ways. That's why I said this reminds me of... rather than this is just like... Sorry if I didn't make that clear.

I was thinking the same thing... ;-D ;-D

There are facts, and there are opinions. Schooling should provide students with facts, so that students can eventually form opinions based on those facts. With people like this, facts and truth take a backseat to ideology. Of course, that in itself is fairly common, but what's exceptional about this case is the fact that they're extremist recording artists. :-t

You've just described every religion on Earth. Wars have been waged, civilizations wiped out, and battles that have gone on for thousands of years, all because of what you stated. Your only error is in only recognizing the religion in which it appears most prevalent in the United States. I'm just saying, this is nothing new, nor is it limited to one religion. This is a worldwide cancer.

I understand what you were going for, but in that same sense, you could make that argument about American democracy or our philosophies on capitalism. Being raised in a close-minded philosophy isn't bad by default.

Hey man, I totally agree...

Well, I don't know how many people have been killed for Buddha. I mean, i could be wrong, but then again, Christians say Buddhists are going to hell too, so what do I know?
