They claim to be the only true christians, but no, they are Ayrian, meaning Jesus=/=God.

Just because YOU believe in fairies doesn't mean anybody else should.

I don't remember watching much when I was a kid, but I did wear out at least one set of Psalty cassettes. No

Later on I was subjected to the Satanic panic crap like Geraldo's special "Exposing Satan's Underground"





and "Hell's Bells - The Dangers of Rock 'N' Roll."




And I told him "that's crazy..." Unsure

The former fell by the wayside pretty quickly after I discovered I was colour blind... But I was learning the guitar very quickly, and soon had a band going in school.

When it became clear that I was more interested in playing and listening to Rock music than read the Bible and Watchtower magazines, my grandmother sent me a DVD, insisting that I watch it and get "straightened out".

So I watched it...

It was about a kid in an American college/high-school who was very good at athletics. So good, his coach thought he could go pro, and maybe even compete in the Olympics. But there was a problem, because the kid was a Jehovah's Witness.

In a nutshell... It basically said you should give up on all your talents, dreams and ambitions, however much you enjoy them. To spend a lifetime reading the fucking Bible, and how much happier you'll be if you do.

Needless to say... The DVD ended up in the trash.

I think I saw that.

My main memory of it was of an old German bloke, with a cane.

Evil incarnate. Haven't spoken with a neighbor since.

Can you imagine how the world would look if conservative, middle-class, white, Christian America's vision of heaven came true?

Thank fuck the '60s happened.

None actually, I should say I was a christian because I thought it was cool and the right thing to do. Undecided

But only for the silly songs with larry.

Same I still love some of them haha The Hairbrush Song being a personal favorite.

It's also fun to describe to people.. "Oh it's a bout a talking Tomato that teaches you about God and a hairbrush obsessed Cucumber."
