i'd just like to "come out" at this point in this thread and let everyone know that my band
belives in Satan and we've all been Satan worshipers for years. we fully belive in
Abortion and are planing on having several performed at our next show. in fact, we're
trying to get people to support an ammendment to the Ohio constitution that would make
Abortions manditory for almost everyone who wants to have children because we
belive that most people will not make good parents. also, we're trying to make marriage
illegal UNLESS you are in a gay releationship. 666 forever!
the thing about equating personal beliefs of people with their art is that it might make
you think they aren't good at what they do, when in fact, it could have almost nothing
to do with the art itself. and championing art strictly because of the beliefs that are
purposed behind it is foolish as well.
like things if you like them, but don't judge and dismiss things without giving them a fair
shake for what they really are.
i'm not saying that i can objectively listen to Skrewdriver without thinking NAZI, but
i have heard them and i think they suck musically. at the same time, if i were hardcore
christian, i wouldn't listen to christian bands that suck either, just to support them.
you need to see the art for what it is, or at least try.
i know this thread is practially dead anyway, but i felt inclined to add my thoughts.
i hope people don't dismiss The Whiles
because i think they are really good at
what they do, regardless of who they fucking voted for.
(i also hope people know i was just kidding about the Satan thing...)
