    Being Goth....and Christian

    I was looking through some information when I stumbled across this. It got me thinking. There are certain looks that we stigmatize because it looks like the person is practicing an "alternative lifestyle". However, having seen enough videos, I've started having a different opinion of what someone like that is like. The individuals in these videos, aside from their appearance, appear to have normal lives. At least one of the individuals talks about how being Goth doesn't mean that you do drugs or that you worship Satan. They describe it as just being a fashion choice. In fact, there appears to be a Christian Goth community. I'll admit that I've tried listening to Christian Metal myself. I found that I prefer Melodic Christian Metal if anything. Some bands that I found pleasant enough to listen to are: HB, Skillet, Fireflight, AnsoticcA, and Flyleaf. As such, I don't see a reason to necessarily believe that the Goth community should be looked on suspiciously.

    Christian Goth

    Absolutely. What someone wears may not reflect the content of their character or the nature of their soul.

    Goths may not be Satan worshippers but they are pretty pathetic.

    I watched this hilarious youtube video a while ago that had some chick interviewing the Scottish youth and lots of them are Goth. I found it. Wait they are Irish. I get the Irish and the Scottish mixed up. I watched Mrs Browns Boys for a few seasons before I realized they were Irish and not Scottish. It wasnt until the Grandad and his mates were planning to bomb something into a carpark that I realized they were Irish. HA! %$%$ing terrorists.

    But yeah look -



    I had a lover that liked The Cure. Ha.



    edit - When I was a teenager I had an awesome 90s undercut. So I guess I cant talk much. It was pretty cool though. Ha.

    According to historical facts, Christian Goth is quite the opposite of what's being portrayed here by a bunch of screwy numb-skulls.

    The first literary work produced in any Germanic tongue was the Gothic Bible. Today this translation exists only in fragmentary form. However, it remains a unique and valued version of the Holy Scriptures. The translator of this Bible was Ulfilas, otherwise known by his Gothic name Wulfila.

    Getting the complete picture go to the following link:

    They become Goth in appearance to simply be different and then wonder why they can't get a job.

    In recent years, I grown to like some symphonic metal which has a Goth element to it but it's typically not over the edge. I was aware to a Christian sub-genre but never checked it out.

    I'm not going to ASSume they are bad kids just because they look that way but I will watch them. If they truly are Christian, it will show in their behavior.

    I never called you a VAXhole. You ASSumed that I did. Your self-ASSumed guilt is your problem and not mine.

    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    Christian? it is shown by one's fruits

    Psalm 1:1-3How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.

    Bring out your dead- The monster is amongst us waiting to be revealed - he bears the number of a man, 666. His Title is Anti-Christ

    The Goths of old were East Germanic tribes and called barbarians by the ancient Romans. The Goths, especially Visigoths actually preserved much of Roman culture and even became Catholics and preserved Christianity as they moved into what is modern day France.

    We have been taught that the end of the Western Roman Empire was the Dark Ages where everything essentially went back to almost caveman existence. Modern archology and historical research shows that was not the case. But because we think that was a dark time period to be Gothic is to be dark and brooding and these young people who are Gothic are really troubled young people with mental issues. Can one be Gothic and a Christian? Yes as we have Gothic Catholic Cathedrals but I do wonder about the mental health of Gothic young people Christian or not.

    There is a very thin line between insanity and eccentricity.

    In NORMAL times how you presented yourself is how you were perceived by others. When my kids were young the Goth's weren't a group to be admired, but now the young people seem to accept anything. I just wonder what kind of jobs they get??

    Exactly - the Southern Europeans may have looked down on us Teuton in ancient times but we conquered them and this is our world now. Dark Ages my ass. We ended slavery ffs. We created an Empire that made the Roman Empire look as pathetic as it really was. Look at Italy and Greece now - piss ant nations that must bow to us. Yet these olive Southern Euro mfers still have ownership of our history and culture. $&$&ing Democracy? 300 to USA my $&$&ing ass! Its nothing to $&$&ing do with our history and culture. Southern Euro are not white! Olive! Semi-coloured! Not Teuton! They are not us. Did they influence our culture? Sure but we also influenced theirs. Im writing a script about this stuff right now you know.
