I'm not religious either (though probably spiritual), but your view points seem to be laced with stereotypes regarding those whose lives don't parallel that of your own.


I have a friend from high school (was probably my best friend during those days), who I barely recognize these days. His emotional growth has receded to the point that as a high school kid, he was more functional in his day to day life. His views on race, alternative life styles, politics, socio-economics and those who are different/or think differently from himself are not only sad, but are in some ways down right frightening. I suppose it's shocking from my standpoint when you witness someone who has gone backward in life rather than forward. If somebody doesn't share his view point, then he not only gets defensive about it, but down right confrontational. The funny thing is, I've never heard his parents view any of those same thoughts!

I respect your opinion, but i dont agree. Nothing bad about that i think. You have your thoughts and i have mine about it. Thanks for telling me about your friend but thats not me at all, i dont get defensive, its just the way i see a lot of those religious people. I am not going to attack anybody only because they are different but i will give my opinion when i wanna give it of course, thats why we have this great forum and we speak with respect. Take care.

coming in and saying religious people are sheep and dont think for themselves is attacking them. Its putting down an entire class of people.

Krokus, I will finish my thoughts with this. I guess my point is this, I believe it's dangerous to stereotype. We all have done it or continue to do it to this day. I just don't think it's healthy, if we as human beings paint with such a broad stroke regarding our opposing views. I don't believe anything good comes from doing this, as we ultimately offend those who think differently. I think it's fine to be diametrically opposed to someone else and their view point, as long as we don't lump in the minority and pretend that they are a majority.

I wasn't trying to lump you in with my friend, as he comes up in my mind when it comes to stereotyping. I certainly don't know you well enough outside of your thoughts on heavy metal and certain religious view points. I'm guessing there is much more to you as an individual outside of these two things. Regarding religion, it just seems like you're very set in your thoughts, and that you use words as "They" to describe an opposing view point. I guess that I just operate differently in that sense. Does "They" represent a person, a small contingent, half of the masses, the majority, or all of those within the religious realm? To me, that's why using words like "They" is sort of dangerous.

Anyhoo, those are my thoughts on the matter. Take care as well Krokus...

Your English is fine Krokus. I only wish that I had as much command with a second language as you. I have great admiration for those who have taken the time out to learning someone else's native tongue. One day I will get back to learning French all over again!

Thanks bro, i am happy you can understand my writing at least Laughing . Yes, its nice to speak an other language. I am from Holland thats why it makes it not so hard to speak english but for Spanish people for exemple its a lot harder to speak good english, and for english to speak spanish too. Good luck with your French.

What was the reason you learned a second language? Did it have anything to do with your love of metal music? Did you have parents that could speak English fluently?

**Regarding my French, I just need to take more time out to actually get invested in really learning the language. It's all about the time we set aside for certain ventures in life.

People in Holland learn English in school, same as us Norwegians. I don't think Spanish people do though, at least only in volunteering classes.

I would imagine that you would call someone racist or sexist if they were of the opinion that women were inferior or people of different colored skin were to be looked down upon. Their opinion does cause hurt and anger to those they are stereotyping. I think the same thing can be said in this instance - coming in and saying that those who are religious follow blindly and dont think for themselves is hardly accurate and perpetuates a stereotype. There are a lot of smart people who are religious.

as for Blackie (and being back on topic) if people dont like what he has to say, they can stop going to his shows. I really have no interest in Springsteen anymore because his ranting about how this world is screwed up because business, Republicans and anything else he doesnt like is evil.

I would disagree.... He probably thinks more for himself know then going 'with the flow'....

plus this stereotype that if you are religious, you cant think for yourself is utter nonsense. Its an attempt by those who dont like religion to make generalizations and try to frame people in neat little categories. I believe in God but I dont take everything anyone says as truth - I do think for myself and when someone says something, I have to evaluate it. And that is the norm - not this silly idea that when someone in a position of leadership says something, everyone immediately agrees.


Of course you have excepcions but most of the ULTRA-religious people dont think for themselfs, they follow blindly without thinking what they are telling them. If 95% are like that, you can generalize. You are the other 5% thats why dont feel ofended.
I disagree. Those kinds of people do nothing but think for themselves. It's 100% selfishness.

And seriously, 95%? I would bet not even 50% are like that. Not even close, actually.

I'm not surprised by this, as schools throughout Europe and I'm guessing Scandinavian countries for decades have stressed learning a second language. When I was in high school one could take Spanish or French, but many students took the required two years so they could graduate. I didn't know many people that took a foreign language beyond what was known as Spanish II or French II. Now of course schools within various parts of the U.S offer a variety of foreign languages which one can learn, and students seem to go beyond what they're required to take.

Good for Blackie. It's nice to see guys like him, with a reputation for being a jerk, stand up for what he believes and also show some compassion.

+1

I enjoy the seeing the hypocrisy of metalheads who take pride in bucking the system and then complain when the system bucks them.

I could never stand beside Blackie Lawless inside a church with outstretched arms.....
Just heard - imagine - 9 years later - he’s born again. Read an interview from 2018.
He’s doing religion his way. He believes once saved always saved. Etc.
Unless he changed his name and stopped touring.....
and gave Chris Holmes a million dollars - due him.....I’d consider his ‘conversion’ real.

People in Holland learn English in school, same as us Norwegians. I don't think Spanish people do though, at least only in volunteering classes.

I'm not surprised by this, as schools throughout Europe and I'm guessing Scandinavian countries for decades have stressed   learning a second language. When I was in high school one could take Spanish or French, but many students took the required two years so they could graduate. I didn't know many people that took a foreign language beyond what was known as Spanish II or French II. Now of course schools within various parts of the U.S offer a variety of foreign languages which one can learn, and students seem to go beyond what they're required to take.



Seeing as English is such an internationally applicable (and in many cases, effectively necessary) language, the learning of it as an L2 skill is viewed in a more compulsory light in many parts of Europe, compared to learning Spanish or French in North America - that's my reading of it, at least.

I dunno, I liked Blackie Lawless way more before his midlife crisis, when he was still shooting sparks out of his codpiece and singing about being an animal. (shrugs)

What I don't like about Blackie after his conversion, or re-conversion (the guy's held a lot of conflicting attitudes both for and against religion over the years), is that now he's taking away some of W.A.S.P.'s edge by refusing to play old songs, most notably Smurf Like a Beast.

He could always don a dog collar and perform the song as I Look Like a Priest lol!
