Re: Repent! Is Rock Music Brainwashing You And Turning You Into A Slave Of Lucifer And His Illuminati? Have You Sold Your Soul For Rock And Roll?
I would venture to say that most people on this website probably love rock music.

For most people it is a HUGE part of their life.

But is it just some cute music about drugs, sex and rebellion, or is there a more sinister agenda at work?

Certainly nobody is saying that all modern music everywhere is bad.

However, the videos that you will watch below should convince even the most casual observer that there is a very disturbing force behind much of today's "rock" music.

After watching these videos, hopefully you all will be much more aware of the source, agenda and message of much of today's music and will be much more hesitant to pump endless hours of it directly into your brain.

*Warning* -- These videos are very graphic and show very clearly the link between rock music and the occult. They are definitely not meant to be watched by young children.

Part I:

[link to video.google.com]

Part II:

[link to video.google.com]

Part III:

[link to video.google.com]

Part IV:

[link to video.google.com]

After viewing these videos, here is a shocking article for you to read that further explores these issues:

[link to www.av1611.org]

The good news is that you CAN be set free from these demonic influences. The good news is that the Lord Jesus Christ is more powerful than all of the powers of darkness, and if you will repent and invite Jesus Christ into your life you will receive eternal life and will have all of your sins forgiven:

 Quoting: 90848 (M) 90848



_______________________________________




Then by all means, Original Poster, . . . REPENT Yourself.


However, if I may paraphrase your so-called “Book of Books” about your alleged “King of Kings,” . . . :

“Sufficient unto the [Christian] arse is the excrement thereof.”


So, Original Poster, . . . IF You attend to the cleaning and maintenance of YOUR arse, . . . THEN I, in turn, shall gladly attend to the maintenance and cleaning of MINE.


But please, Original Poster, . . . PLEASE :

FOR the Suffering Sake of HUMANITY, . . . could you SPARE Us from the Force-Feedings which are INFLICTED upon us so regularly by the OBNOXIOUS, Twice-Born Christian religionists who, . . . in their own Vaulted Self-Righteousness, and with their Typically Arrogant, Strutting, Holier-Than-Thou Demeanor . . . apply the term Witnessing [SIC] to their Unspeakably Intrusive and Offensive Behaviours !



Although I realise, Original Poster, that the Obnoxiously Christian types have great difficulty in grasping such notions regarding those humans to whom the Twice-Born Christians refer as the UN-Saved [SIC], . . . the simple truth is that MANY Humans -- who know quite well the nature of the Christian religionist arguments / positions / assumptions -- purely and simply WANT NO Part of that Obnoxious, “Twice-Born” Christian paradigm, . . . NOR the societal agenda which is attendant thereto.

I took my daughter to see (S)Tool. In the middle of the show the singer dedicated the next song to "Sweet Lord Satan". I took my daughters hand and left never to buy another of their CD's or to go to see them again. Fagitaboutit, low life (LOL).



How old are you? And your daughter? Have you listened to Tool's lyrics? You DO REALIZE the Rosetta Stoned, a song from 10,000 days, was written about a man on a simultaneous DXM and LSD trip right? You need to listen to the lyrics of the songs and understand the meaning. Then perhaps you can do a better job of policing what your innocent little child listens to. Tool isn't a band to be taken lightly. Most of the songs deal with something very deep or with material that some people consider taboo. That's why the CD's come with a MATURE CONTENT warning. If your daughter isn't old enough then I suggest you do a better job of parenting.

Dedicating the next song to Satan is just Maynard's sense of humor. The concert I went to he said he had to pee and that it was going to be like Noah's flood soon. Would you have left at that comment?

if the idiot had any brains he wouldnt have taken his child to the concert in the first place, dont blame the band whose CD's all have parental warnings on them for the stupid decisions of parents. parents need to take some responsibility for raising their children and not expect the rest of the village-world to raise their children for them.

My wife and I took our little ones to a Tool concert. We have a 2 year old, a 5 year old, and an 8 year old. Could you believe the audacity this band has to be saying that stuff in front of CHILDREN?!! We were appalled!

Our littlest was crying the whole time, and my dear wife had to spike her pacifier with the whiskey she had in her flask. Our other two were scared by the show until the funny smelling smoke calmed us all down. I still can't believe that they are allowed to do this, shouldn't every gathering be conformed to be all-ages?!!!!!


I also hope this was a joke, you jackass. You are complaining about what they SAID at the concert you PAID to see, while giving your 2 year old kid whiskey and gettin high off fumes. I think that you have your devils mixed up here. Take your damned kids to a Barney On Ice or something. You are a sham of a parent, and TOOL will not change for you.


wtf

My wife and I are insulted by your response. I can't believe there aren't laws in place to lock people like you up! I should be able to walk my kids into any place and have them bend over backwards to make it suitable. I am taking my toddler to a porno theatre and demanding that they censor the material and make it suitable!!!!

I will have a family outing to a strip club and make them put on oversized t-shirts with the kid's favorite cartoon characters on them!!!

I -WILL- drug my kids when I see fit so as to make things more tolerable for my wife and I, because we just can't be bothered. We refuse to get a sitter.....

The world should conform itself into a whitewash G-rated, dumbed down, uninspired, mediocre, suitable for all ages place so I don't have to dish out the 10-15 dollars for a babysitter.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 186022


I feel that I have been had. Which member of the band might you be, or are you one of the toolband site mods? Just a thought. It wouldn't surprise me one bit.

Re: Repent! Is Rock Music Brainwashing You And Turning You Into A Slave Of Lucifer And His Illuminati? Have You Sold Your Soul For Rock And Roll?
Cribbing one of my own threads but I think it's somewhat apropo:

With mainstream radio it’s the same deal. Excluding independently owned stations that play a variety of music and encourage local musicians, the corporate owned radio stations all run on the same format. Goofy morning show in the a.m., with over caffeinated perky hosts gaffawing through your speakers; “Two-Fer Tuesdays,” the “All Request Lunch Hour”; and the afternoon show for the ride home. And the worst offender of all: The repetitive playlist. Playing the same 100 songs, over and over and over and over and over. With Top 40 stations, it’s the 100 most popular songs of the moment, endlessly pounded into your head. With stations that cater to the 60’s – 90’s, it’s the same select few songs from certain artists….as if they never recorded any other songs or had multiple albums.

A big part of why this is involves the human love of ritual and all things safe and secure. We’ve all known the people that like to play their radio at work, always tuned to the same station, with the same songlist playing, day in and day out. It’s comforting. It’s secure. The world is a safe place when you can count on your radio to always be there for you, playing the same comforting song list. In a cold, cruel world, at least the radio will never let you down. ;) Problem is, this programs and conditions people to stay within the safe confines of a limited existence. Don’t take risks. Don’t rise up and look around outside the pen. Stay put. And never mind the programming that occurs from all the manic, amped up commercials that always have the volume turned up higher than the songs.

The world of music also seems to have reached a stagnant stalemate. Music coming out today often times can’t be differentiated between music from the 90’s, ten years ago. So much is just recycled, with no originality. Remember how each decade used to have its own unique sound, as the world of the 20th century progressed very rapidly? Things were changing so quickly in years past that when I’m listening to classic rock/oldies I can most times actually pinpoint what year a song came out in….even if I’ve never heard it before. That’s because every few years there was a new and unique element being added to the mix with music, all of which makes it possible nowadays to accurately guess, plus or minus a year, when a song was released. Well, what happened?? Where’s the “sound of now” ? There is none. But how many people have actually noticed this?

And here’s an idea/question I’ll leave off with concerning music – how is that seemingly unrelated bands from different areas of the country that get “discovered” by talent scouts and signed on to recording labels somehow all managed to come up with the same exact sound, so that when they are featured on the radio and MTV, every band’s sound matches with the others creating that “sound of the moment” ?? This isn’t something that pertains to just the present day either, this is something that goes back decades. Why is it that every time period must have a “certain sound”? And who determines what this sound will be? Also, if society was able to come up with a particular musical sound or genre in one decade, are we to believe that it wasn’t feasible several years prior? Using the 50’s and 60’s as a good example – the late 60’s is infamous for its now classic rock – but how come this sound didn’t “evolve” ten years earlier? They had the instruments in the 50’s – the electric guitar, bass, drums – so who is it that decided to flip the switch “on” and usher in the sound of what we now know of classic 60’s and early 70’s rock? Who created that sound and why did everybody have the same sound? It seems almost too obvious to ponder. It’s something that really hit my boyfriend and I several years ago, and which I’ve been wondering about ever since.

The whole “sound of the moment” thing is another programming tool when you think about it, because it forces the herd into accepting limited choices and options. “This is all you have to listen to at the moment. This is all that has been ‘invented’ as of yet.”
