Oh, boy, here comes another avalanche of "pop culchur is teh debils werks." triggering a shitstorm of misinformation, fabrication, lies and bullshit, followed by showers of fundie conversion and salvation porn, with sprinkles of praise and worship masturbation throughout the evening. This is your fundie thread content forecast from News Channel 6, WFST.

Citation very much fucking needed.
And if so.. so what?

Because, as we all know, no one ever killed in the name of jesus...

was mentally ill. His claims of Satanism were irrelevant and so was his involvement in D&D, neither of which has ever been scientifically proven to cause people to become violent. Violent tendencies are something a person possesses as part of their personality, not created. Someone is either predisposed toward violent behavior or they are not, it really is that simple.
Sellers didn't kill because he was into Satanism or RPGs. He was a sick boy who wanted to see what it was like to kill. During his incarceration he accepted Jesus like every other good convict. You've proven nothing.

Holy fuck, it's a strawman Satanist! I always thought they were fictional!

Wow, it's not often you see a Satanist actually go out and murder a bunch of people. Usually it's just fundies of other descriptions claiming that Satanists do these things.

Jeffrey Dahmer: Born Again Fundamentalist Christian
Jeffrey Dahmer is the son of a Born Again Fundamentalist (Church of Christ) father. Jeffrey's Born Again Fundamentalist home life led him to feel he could not acknowledge his homosexuality to his Fundamentalist father, and instead he developed an intense hatred of himself and of other gay men.
Well Jeffrey has now come home. He has become a Born Again Fundamentalist, baptized by a minister of the Church of Christ.
Concerning Dahmer's difficulty in coming to grips with his homosexuality, Palermo indicated that was a problem since adolescence because he believed his family could not accept it. The difficulty evolved into a hatred over the years which later led to the killings, Palermo said.

with the will of the Almighty Creator:
by defending myself against the Jew,
I am fighting for the work of the Lord"

Hey, how come I didn't get invited to any Satanist orgies when I played Dungeons and Dragons?
No fair man!
7/17/2012 5:13:29 AM
We don't have high priests or recruiters, D&D is a harmless game...
Oh, why am I bothering? This is just more bullshit still circulating from the Satanic Panics.
7/17/2012 5:19:12 AM
You forgot to add anime to the list. And pornography.
7/17/2012 5:36:08 AM
Mazes and Monsters is a far out game.
7/17/2012 5:43:09 AM
See? See? We need to ban D&D, Satanism, heavy metal, and horror movies (make that any R-rated movie, no, make that any non-explicitly Christian movie), and might as well throw out porn for good measure so that we make sure this never, ever happens again. Might as well make it illegal for kids to look "goth," too, because no matter what they say it's all about, we all know it's really just Satanism.
Think of the children.

1980s social panics were lame.

My best friend has all the Beatles albums, has a framed poster of His Noodlyness the Flying Spaghetti Monster on his wall (along with a hi-res printout of part of the Large Hadron Collider, from CERN), has - in his vast book collection - the works of Dennis Wheatley, HP Lovecraft & Clive Barker, and the "Alien"/"Predator" & even "Event Horizon" films in his DVD collection.
He also has a huge collection of - and plays - RPGs. Including D&D, and even 'Call of Cthulhu'.
He's a long-time C-of-E Christian. He doesn't have a criminal record.
Sellers, either you're a liar or as proved above, your argument is invalid. Choose wisely...!
7/17/2012 5:57:38 AM
Is it 1983 again?

Mental illness is of the demons!
Strange to say, demons are afraid of lithium ...

Someone can't tell fiction from reality. I play Grand Theft Auto, listen to death metal, and watch horror movies. Despite that I haven't so much as punched anyone. How is that possible? Because I know the difference between real life and make believe.
7/17/2012 6:35:49 AM
Well goodness, we should immediately ban all of those things then, I guess.
I sense another moral panic a comin'.

What was it that Marilyn Manson said:
He'd like to think he was more influential than the president, but he didn't really think he was, somehow.
Your president sends people overseas to kill real living human beings, but a game of make-believe and a bit of music are more responsible for a murder?
7/17/2012 7:25:28 AM
The 80s called. They want their conspiracy theories back.
7/17/2012 7:25:52 AM
Reading his Wikipedia article, he sounds to me like your basic run-of-the-mill psychopath. And he's really bad at it, from the sound of things. Blaming Satanism and D&D is pretty damn weak. And when he started blaming Multiple Personality Disorder, the psychiatric community had already debunked a good number of the cases, and was seriously considering whether the disorder even existed.
That boy sounded absolutely pathetic.
7/17/2012 8:19:23 AM
I listen to death metal, play violent video games like Blood Omen 2 (where you play as the most awesome vampire, ever, Kain) and watch horror movies, war movies, and anything that contains gratuitous violence. I do not have a criminal record, I donate to charity, and from what I've seen, am a hell of lot more "moral" than most of my Christian Texans are.
7/17/2012 8:44:28 AM
If your mind is so troubled and/or weak that D&D and heavy metal can make you kill your parents, D&D and heavy metal aren't your problem. It's your troubled/weak mind that's the problem.
7/17/2012 8:46:51 AM
This is bullshit
And why always D/D? Why not White Wolf games which are far darker? Heavy metal? Damn I thought blaming that ended in the 90s. Hell Columbine was the last time I heard a musician blamed and that was 99. (Fuck I feel old). And that blame was misplaced and wrong. Horror videos? Not blaming Natural Born Killers anymore?
7/17/2012 9:13:51 AM
Every "Satanist" I've ever researched has had that "healthy productive, church going Christian upbringing" you shits demand always produces good citizens.
To even think Satan exists is a Christian trait, to the unbelievers he's a mythical construct, a part of the Biblical myths, nothing more and certainly not real. This is a product of your religion..
