    Default Satanic cults?

    Today's news said that 81% of Dominicans are concerned about youth involved with satanic cults.

    Default Yes Jane......It is a growing concern!

    There were a number of incidents not well covered by the media while we were in the DR this past winter.
    It is a concern for all.......

    Default cults

    I think this is a very high estimate....I really don't thinks that that many ppl in the DR are into that......to make that many ppl give it a thought!

    When I was a kid I was very much into Heavy Metal. Of course I didn't get a tattoo, neither did I use anything like drugs, in fact I drank my first alcoholic beverage after I had left home and went to the University.

    Back in those days Huchy Lora (a well known journalist) took it on himself to convince parents that Ozzy was a devil worshiper (aha ) and that songs like "Hotel California" had "subliminable" messages and other assorted horsecrap. Needless to say there was a big stir and the nuns in my school decided I was a lost case (they might have been up to something there).

    If you tune in a number of Puerto Rican and Dominican Christian TV channels around here you'll hear people saying that the Internet is the "weapon of the Anti-Christ" and this and that. People that doesn't know better are very gullible, and they get easily convinced that "something is going on".

    Still 81% sounds like heck lot of people. Unless by "satanic cults" they mean PRD followers.

    I know, bad joke

    Default Hehe....Actually a pretty good joke......

    I did think the 81% a little high but I guess it would depend on where the poll was taken.
    Still it is a concern and there were some pretty freaky stories going around when I was there.......

    It all depends what is seen as a satanic cult.
    Fire & water are destructive too in great quantities.
    Metal is good It saved me from turning to more destructive things when I got divorced.

    Default My 16 month old grandson LOVES heavy metal...!

    You should see him go when he hears it!! Almost looks like he's doing the merengue! At least he shouldn't be as "impaired" in the dance dept. as his dad and his Nono are!!
    First time I've heard of the "satanic twist" to the music tho'. Guess I never really listened to the vocals just the beat!!! Hmmmmm.....I better go put some on and have a listen!!

    After seeing a couple of episodes of the Osbournes, I would say the only devil Ozzy really worships is the dollar.

    Talking Santeria

    I love the PRD joke.

    By "satanic cults", I believe they mean voodoo, as well as santeria that leans towards the African rather than Catholic side of the spectrum. I doubt too many people are actually praying to Satan [fill in your own Hipolito joke here].
