Underground culture - JCHC Punx / Metal / Hardcore / Rap

This article was composted (censored) from Portland for Christian content. Another article I posted on Indymedia Portland announcing a Demon Hunter concert was also composted. This shows Indymedia's bias against anything to do with Christian culture.

In recent years, there has been an explosion in a musical genre pioneered by groups such as Petra, Stryper and Whitecross. This is Christian hard rock, which includes subcategories like punk, metal, hardcore, rapcore and metalcore. There are even some Christian grindcore bands around. These artists have a message of love and redemption in thier lyrics. One early group is D.C. Talk, who wrote songs such as In the Light, Jesus Freak and Into Jesus. Toby Mac, who went solo, used to be one of the band members. Pillar is another group that is popular, whose CD, For the Love of The Game is available everywhere. Pillar has other CD's such as Fireproof, Where do We Go From Here, and The Reckoning. Demon Hunter is another Christian band that plays metalcore. They have CD's such as The Tryptich and Storm the Gates of Hell. Living Sacrifice is a Christian death metal band. P.O.D. is a rapcore band from the 90's. They grew popular, getting airplay on mainstream radio stations. P.O.D. had a hit titled Youth of The Nation. Among other metal bands are August Burns Red, Underoath, Decypher Down, Disciple, Flyleaf, Horde and others. Christian punk bands include Officer Negative, Lugnut, Headnoise, Squad Five-O, Dogwood, Pocketchange, MxPx, Public Unrest, I.N.C., Gel Finatic, Flatfoot 56 and Project 86. Hardcore bands include Skillet and Thousand Foot Krutch. Christian rap acts include Supernatural - who is a local Portland rapper, Grits, Flame, Da Truth, La Crae, T-Bone, who was once a gang banger and KJ-52. Lately, in 2005, Dave Mustaine, front man to Megadeth became a Christian, releasing a CD titled United Abominations. When Dave converted, he quit drinking. The only change in Mustaine's music style is that he writes Christian themes in his songs. Megadeth rocks just as hard as in the old days. Many Christian metal and punk bands rock as hard as their mainstream counterparts. Christian rappers have themes of life in the hood, poverty, gang violence and repentance and turning away from the gangbang lifestyle. Many of them were gang members themselves.

Christian culture is working its way into the larger pop culture. An example of this is Demon Hunter's videos being played on MTV 2's Headbanger's Ball. Another example is the Afters making a video that is on MTV. In this case, MTV called the band and offered to play their video. Lately, songs from Christian artists have had airplay on mainstream radio stations and bands like Demon Hunter and many Christian metal bands tour with mainstream metal bands. They also play at mainstream venues and clubs in local metal, punk and rap scenes.

Open Letter to

I posted an article on the Portland Indymedia about Christian youth and their music. Particularly Christian punk, metal, rap and hardcore. It was titled "Underground culture - JCHC Punx / Metal / Hardcore / Rap" I also posted an article announcing a Demon Hunter concert. None of these were against your publishing guidelines which read as follows

portland indymedia worker drones reserve the right to hide posts that:

1. advocate criminal activity indicating a specific time, place and/or manner

2. are duplicate posts (the most recent remaining on the newswire)

3. are obviously libelous or slanderous

4. interfere with the technical functionality of the website

5. are intended to disrupt the site

6. are empty posts (no content or gibberish)

7. are commercial advertisements

8. promote racism, homophobia, sexism, or other discrimination.

9. are obviously incorrect or misleading, including attempts to spread dis-information

10. are reposted from corporate media outlets

Other posts might be composted accordingly.

obviously, you have a blatant bais against cultures and beleifs that you do not agree with (namely anything Christian) that contradicts the "rainbow family ideas" or "new age philosophy". Indymedia, you advertise yourself to be an open newswire. It is obvious that you practice censorship. This is hypocrisy and makes you no better than CNN or FOX News, only this is a news outlet run and dominated by the left, just like MSM is corporate run. Both have bad bias and your "news" is so badly distorted. You stand for equality, yet you discriminate.

Wake up call for Christians

How can any Christian with half a conscience support abortion, Planned Parenthood, or the attempt to redefine marriage? How could Obama claim to be a Christian when he gives a speech about choice at a Planned Parenthood event? I think Obama is whack. He is just pandering to people of faith to get thier vote. Obama claiming to be a Christian is like the way the "Christian" slave holders used the Bible to justify slavery or the flaming homo bishops in the Episcopalian church saying that it is okay to lead a church and be openly and unabashedly gay. Homosexuality is sin. God loves them, but their behavior is not okay. No one with known sin in their live should be in a leadership position in a diocese or a church. That goes for adultery and fornication as well as homosexuality, so I am not just singling out gays here. Obama also suppoorts perverting what is meant by God to be a covenant between one man and one woman into lesbian and gay marriage. There was once a time when there was prayer in the public school system, and after it got taken out, presto! We got one heck of a gang and drug problem where kids bring guns to school and do things like Virginia Tech and Columbine. Even PSU has an official pro-choice position on the issue of sexuality, as well as an infection of secular humanisim in academia. The schools teach a watered down US history where they claim that the founding fathers were a bunch of atheists. That is not true. Washington was often seen on his knees praying and most of them wrote letters to each other affirming faith in God. Thanks to this misconception that "separation of church and state" is found in the first ammendment, groups like Americans for the Separation of Church and State sue anyone who starts a bible club in a high school or erects a nativity display in a public place. This is just whack. Secular Humanism, which is actually classified as a religion has become the defacto state religion of America. It is about time for Christians to wake up and take a good hard look around at what is going on. These secular humanistic fundamentalists can be just as dogmatic in their beleifs as a jihadist who blows themself up on an Israelli bus or a communist like Stalin who murdered half the Russian population. Oh, and the Chi Guverra guy that I always see on t-shirts personally executed scores of people.

The real dirt on Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States and it was founded by Margaret Sanger, a racist and proponent of eugenics, a philosophy all about racial purity and limiting the fertility of blacks, Jews, the poor, disabled and other "defective people" and "human waste". This is the same kind of thing that drove Adolf Hitler to exterminate six million Jews in Germany during the Holocaust. The original name of Planned Parenthood was the Negro Project, or as revisionists write, the American League of Birth Control. The Negro Project tricked the elites of black community, including even ministers and doctors, into thinking that abortion was the solution to the low social stautus and poverty the black community suffered. It promised abortion and birth control would alleviate the ills of the Negro by reducing the black population. It was not abortion that ultimately did this, but the black community rising up in protest of the injustice around them that elevated thier status in american society.

Planned Parenthood also aids and abets criminals, namely staturatory rapists who have sex with teenagers. These teen girls then get an abortion and Planned Parenthood conceals the identity of the partner of the teenager and fails to report the incident to the police or the parents. There is such a video documenting this on You Tube:

Here are some quotes from Sanger:

On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
"...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

Margaret Sanger's December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon's Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

This is a wake up call and call to action for the churches of America and all Christians to protest this wicked organizaton wherever they set up thier baby slaughterhouses. Pastors must preach against Planned Parenthood from the pulpit. The unborn are the least fortunate among us an Jesus calls us all to help the less fortunate. God will hold us accountable for what we do about the murder of innocent lives.
