Quote# 41998

this is why my kids aren't allowed to listen to the radio. we have a cd player in the car, and it only plays contemp christian and secular stuff that is rated "g".

when my oldest was little (probably 10 yrs ago?) there was this song with the lyrics "follow me, everything is all right..i'll be the one to tuck you in at night...if you want to leave i can guarantee, you won't find nobody else like me". I can't remember the name or artist. one day my friend asked me if i realized what this was singing about and i was like, 'no, but its a nice tune'...it was talking about infidelity. i FREAKED OUT. from then on, the radio was off (and this was before i was a comitted christian) and the cd's or tapes went on!

can't trust anything..and the dangerous thing about MUSIC Is that it ingrains in your brain. heck, i can remember jingles from 1975 for goodness sakes. i don't want my kids mindlessly singing the junk that's out there!!

Me again

"follow me, everything is all right..i'll be the one to tuck you in at night...if you want to leave i can guarantee, you won't find nobody else like me".

Couldn't you just imagine that Jesus was singing these words to you instead?

Yep, better off letting them hear about an imaginary friend in the sky.

Oh, hush, you crazy woman.

People like this need to be tied down and forced to listen to "Lord Abortion", "Satanic Mantra", "Cthulhu Dawn" and "The Rape and Ruin of Angels" by Cradle of Filth. They would implode.

Dude. Uncle Cracker is too hardcore for you? What the fuck is wrong with you?

I sentence you to "Abigail" by King Diamond till I say otherwise.

One day those kids will have to leave the protection of home ad venture out into the world...

I always thought it was about heroin not infidelity, especially with the "swim through your veins like a fish in the sea" line.

Dr. Shrinker

"And Jesus did say unto the crowds, 'Verily I tell you, hide thyself away from sin like cowardly ninnies, for faith is a weak and feeble thing, guaranteed to crumble at the first opposition.'"

That's from Mark chapter 17. No really. Look it up!

Its cold inside lets go inside! I'll fuck you while you're boyfriend cries! Cuz I'm drunk and high, bout to lose my grip cuz these bitches want my cookie crisp! Girl don't blame me, blame the alcohol! In the bathroom stall cuz I got blue balls! Oh im sorry, is brokencyde not "g" rated? Seriously go listen to dot dot curve, brokencyde, hollywood undead and (especially) blood on the dancefloor then get back to me on unchristian music. While you're at it, google Geoffrey Paris, see what you think of him (he's transexual and bisexual and supafabulust). Oh and by the way i love the song follow me, and lyrics can be applied to alot of different situations. Maybe your friends right and it really is about cheating but i could also apply that to a healthy relationship, or hell even a father/daughter one.

Huge fail.

And the Lizard spake, saying, "Shelter thy child from the evils of secular culture, and in the fullness of time he shalt be quoted on FSTDT."

And it was so.

"It's about an affair" was the backstory, and the alleged one at that, though "it's about drugs" rivaled it. The lyrics are ambiguous and could refer to a non-adulterous relationship. Admittedly, something extratextual CAN color your interpretation of a work, but they only LISTEN to extratextual information that confirms their own beliefs about something or, if they had no interpretation, gives them a reason to hate it. More fundies believed an ONION story that J.K. Rowling was a satanist than believed any of the interviews in which she's talked about her Christianity or the Christian symbols in Harry Potter, because they WANT to believe she's a satanist. "But but the context" isn't something I'm going to heed from them this time.

I feel sorry for your kids they'll have to wait longer to discover music beyond Christian contemporary schlock, some of the most processed music of all time. But I'm sure they will one day, and it'll probably be death metal or gangster rap or something.

"follow me, everything is all right..i'll be the one to tuck you in at night...if you want to leave i can guarantee, you won't find nobody else like me"
Maybe it was talking about the movie "North", why the fuck does it matter? It's just music.

Not allowed to listen to the freaking radio?! That's a form of child abuse...a mild form, granted, but it's a slippery slope from there.

Is there a secular stuff rated G store out there? I hope fucking not.

You're listening to the most commercial or mindwashing shit you can right now. Secular means everything, to not hear the Beatles, Doors or Floyd due to a fringe fundie mindset is depriving your children of true art.

Somewhere, right now, some kid is defying his parents by listening to the radio band and wondering why his parents are so very afraid.
