http://www.politicalgoth.cjb.net/

yeah.. they are for real... Sadly they are also very mistaken...

What people will do for attention....


LMAO..
"200% tax increase upon Absinthe and clove cigarettes"

Ummm.. last I knew Absinthe was not legal in the US to begin with... LMAO

"Constitutional amendments to ban Satanism, Wicca, Magick and Bondage"

Oh.. so Bondage is a religion? hmm... News to me...

I'm not even going to get into the rest of this "law" cause it's apparent that it is just some idiot trying to create problems...

God help the world if something like that actually PASSED! I have enough faith in our system for constitutional amendments that wouldn't.

And, no, bondage is NOT a religion, and it is NO ONE'S business what people do in their bedrooms, so long as it is consensual.

Wicca should NOT be placed in the same category as Satanism. That would be like saying Catholics and the KKK are the same. Morons.

And not enough people smoke cloves to make that tax worth it!

Argh, that pissed me off, don't mind me!

You mean, religions? Or groups whose civil rights have been violated more than once? (Which would even make bondage fit on the list.)

Let me be frank here, simply because the two groups aren't the same thing, doesn't mean they should never be in a sentance together. Especially when it would be relevant (and it is, as much as anything on that list is).

I'm not defending the site, which is very alarmist and unfounded, however, I think someone, (I can't figure out who...) is being just a tad over-sensitive on the whole Wicca vs Satanism issue.

Look, both religions should be protected under the first amendment, and if the first amendment rights of both are being, Satanists and Wiccans will just have do deal with being in the same sentance. Perhaps, they may even have to *gasp* cooperate with each other, to even make a notable sector.

As for the cloves thing, not only goths smoke cloves, they are extremely popular with central asians, which is part of how it got here in the first place. Go to a pakistani neighborhood, and you'll find them at the cornerstore, and they'll sell. However, the idea of the allegedly planned tax increase, coupled with the allegedly planned tax increase on an illegal item, pretty much knocks down the probability factor significantly.

The site is a sorry excuse for a political website, to be sure. That sucks because there are real issues out there that could be goth relevant. It would better serve the goth community/subculture/apply-lable-here if the site were simply a feed of any media attention towards goth. Not as hard to implement as it sounds. Given some of the resources out there, it could even be somewhat automated. Or completely.

I wouldn't call myself a full-fledged wiccan, but I know many who are, and they are infuriated when they are compared to Satanists. Yes, they may be an oppressed group as well, but the bottom line is it is ignorant to lump the two together. Wiccans don't even believe in Hell, let alone Satan. I don't doubt Satanists don't appreciate being lumped in with Wiccans. Wicca was around for thousands of years before the concept of Satan was ever birthed.
