So basically 3 days ago in my country, there was a metal concert in a place near of me and the cops stopped the concert and arrested some fans and accused them of being "Devil Worshipers". No metal bands perform in the middle east but  there are some local bands here that sing songs from famous bands. I really got pissed off from such news because I am a metal fan myself and I never even thought about worshiping Satan, I do not even believe in him damn it lol... anyway, the mass media kept talking about the incident and how the metal fans "prayed" to the evil satan by shaking their heads and making a hand sign LOL..SERIOUSLY???

Ok there are SOME metal songs that mention Satan and talks about him in a good way like he is a rebel and he is a our real savior bla bla bla... I checked out the songs names that will be sung and non of them were Satanic...Usually metal songs discuss daily problems that most people suffer from, not just a face painted long haired loud voiced dude who keeps shaking his head....

The thing I am trying to say is..people here are so damn stupid that they jump right to a conclusion without even trying to investigate or at least know what is going on....Forget the metal concert,look at every thing in their lives.... They keep jumping to conclusions without thinking..."OH you support gay marriage,then you are gay like them and you must be punished", "you wear tight clothes, then you are a slut", "you support the theory of evolution, then you are making a war against religion" and million other sentences said by those people....I have a simple answer, I am nothing more than an open minded individual who firmly believes that everyone on this planet is free to do whatever they wanna do as long as that thing does not cause harm to other people...Making a problem over a music concert simply indicates that this society suffers from severe stupidity and mental disorders and no one should ever be punished for thinking differently or having a different taste of music!

It seems that the religious authorities prohibit being different in any way - extreme conformity rules the day.  \m/

There are nut jobs everywhere, but in some countries they run the joint, I guess.

Here in the US some Christian extremists want to ban Halloween as a satanic holiday, when very few of the children and their parents think of it that way. Probably fewer still understand much about its religious roots, which are not satanic at all. Halloween celebrates All Hallows Eve, the evening before All Saints Day.
