An "agenda" can be a very dangerous thing. A religious agenda can be deadly. Cast thy eyes toward the Middle East!
I have often seen religious, vested interest groups state their opinions and under great opposition fall silent, but they continue to work in the background, silently. Soon they get a quarum, petitions, lobbyists and then we are suddenly confronted with "I am offended laws", ergo political correctness, "family values" (which culture may I ask?) Soon the "I am offended ones" see their chance to shirk resposibilities for their own actions and point the finger at someone else and sue them, and get away with it.
Except at Epic,
perhaps it is our fault for not fighting back in a timely manner. Many Germans laughed and scoffed at the new Nazi party as idiots, and they shrugged them off. History shows even idiots can seize power. Wasn't there a book called "Never Say It Can't Happen Here"? ... Something like that?
I will, however, invoke Voltaire, "I may disagree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death you're right to say it." Christian_skier has the right to post here as well as anyone. However, he must also accept the right of others' rebuttal, and I venture to say he should respond. Surely he feels, "What's the use? I know what the responses will be, and here they are!" Christian... you should have expected it, but you posted anyway.
I think it rather humerous what images Christians and other groups find satanic. A skull is just a skull. Wings? is there an implication that wings belong to angels and therefore should not be superimposed on skulls? Chapter and verse please... where does it say that angels have wings? If Jesus were here today (in the flesh) he probably say, "AW come on, Christian_skier... knock it off! Let's do some runs!"
Many religious groups think sex was the original sin, therefore anything of a sexual nature is a no-no! The original sin was disobediance. (And there was no mention of an apple) I mention the above items only because people such as Christian would, perhaps, try to argue those points.
If he sees some offensive (to him) items, instead of asking for a ban, he can do one of two things.... or both 1) teach his kids otherwise and teach them not to pay attention to it (Nazi Germany? Naaah) 2) Don't give it the attention these attention-getting devices want. Previous generations had theirs... long hair, pins and buttons through their cheeks and tongues, orange or blue hair. Sooner or later they all grow up and get jobs and therefore have to get straight, or relatively so. They are young. Let 'em have their fun while they can.
Hank Williams Jr. had a song with a line in it I liked.... "If you don't like it, can't you just let it pass?"
And now for some SEXY tune, a parody....
Keep your feet on your skis, keep your mind on the snow: Keep your soupy eyes on the hill ahead. We're having fun, skiing down the slow line, hugging and a kissing with Ted.... and Bob B, and Todd, and Dchan... and AC and ... <your name here>.
