Quote# 5525

When I was a teenager, I took all my secular music records and busted them up in my room with a hammer. Why, cause the lyrics were not of God, his thoughts, his desires, and promoted witch craft, perversion, and satan worship.

It makes me sad when people destroy music, however, he could have had the decency to use a shotgun, methinks.

Come on guys, it's his property and it's not like they are the last records on earth. Even if they were, I don't think it would be much of a loss for a couple of samey songs to be utterly forgotten.
INB4 someone says "Those who burn books will burn people": I guess when people use the slippery slope argument to deny someone their ____-given right to fuck, it's wrong, but when it's against a persons _____-given right to do what they will with their own property, it's perfectly acceptable.

Maybe you should first have tried playing them backwards. Who knows? You might have heard the Voice of God.

More likely you would have heard a lot of gibberish, but there's hardly any difference anyway.

@Dudeskull

I speak for myself when I say I have no issue with him destroying his own property. It is, as you say, his choice, and if he wants to use his CDs as coasters, it's totally his prerogative. I just feel this whole "modern music is sinful because it doesn't glorify God" claptrap is pretty silly, and paints their deity as an egocentric asshole who cannot abide anything that does tie directly back to him.

TL;DR, you're right, but I'll still shake my head at it, anyways.

...I hope you didn't do this a few months after begging your parents to spend money on those records, or they may have been pretty annoyed with your stupid teenage phases.

Sheesh, you could have sold the lot and made a bit of money put towards a godly record or two, thus supporting those oh-so-godly artists. Don't you ever stop to think BEFORE taking out the shotgun or hammer?

I actually feel sorry for people with this mindset as much of the best Christian songs and lyrics have come from "secular" bands

Supertramp
Ozark Mountain Daredevils
to name just two

of course you have to sift through the non-religious or even anti-religious songs but it would be worth it as both those groups have produced quality music as opposed to the repetetive or plagerized crap "Christian" bands produce
