This is absolutely hilarious. I knew I had to share this with the steampunk fans on this site.

Look at number 7 on the list, especially the accompanying pic and text.

"Yet SteamPunk quickly becomes a gateway to sadomasochism and even Trotskyism."


this one is also funny considering international steampunk day is coming up, June 14th

"Drug use is part of the steampunk culture, with flypapers soaked in water to draw out the arsenic for clear skin and belladonna used to give a dazed and day dreamy look to a woman’s eyes."

FYI Christwire is a satirical website writing articles from an extreme Christian viewpoint

Doesnt stop me from believing that there are real people out there who probably think along those exact lines XD
Now excuse me, I have to call 911. I seem to have laughed my lungs out and they are all over the floor and making a mess.

OMG! xDDD Ahahaha! This made my morning! The finger mustache is a gateway to lesbianism? Gangs of Athiests harassing Christans over Heterosexuality? XDDDD Steampunk involving dildo guns? *Wipes tear* Even tho this is satire, sadly it's probably not far from what some of the fanatics think. I bet those who stumble on this think it's brilliantly true and believe every word.

I liked the first one about Bronies.

It's scary that one of my sort-of-friends is a pegasister furry.

Yeah I love that website. All it really does is simply carry Christian beliefs to their logical conclusions as they look for Satan in all things.

I too also loved the point about "bronies" leading to beastiality, lol. After all only Satan would tempt young women with My Little Pony and encourage them to fornicate with animals. LOL

Say WHAAAHH? "Asianation" and "Teenage Mustaches" are on the list. The Brony picture made me giggle.

Nothing against Christians but this is serious crap. Laughed so hard when I saw the part about the guy from vampire diarys. Lol

I've met some people in the past that would have no problem falling into this sort of mindset. I honestly feel sorry for anyone that lives their entire life that uptight and highly-strung.

I'm a Christian and into steampunk and I think these people have no common sense, sense of humor or ability to think for themselves. Please don't think they represent anything but an odd, out-of-touch fringe element. The finger mustache being a gateway to lesbianism is easily the funniest thing I've read in weeks.

Actually, they kinda do - they're a satire site, poking fun at the fringe Christian extremists who have nothing better to do than condemn others.

HAHAHA that's awesome. You guys realise this is normal for people like that right? They want to gain control of how everyone lives their lives and think cristain is the way to go and anything they dissagree with is the devil and will say anything (researched or not, in this case NOT) to make others believe so to get them to follow what they believe..This is very normal lol BUT HILARIOUS!!!!

There really are people like that. My dad has actually thrown this exact article at us as to why everything we like is evil. :( When I told him it is a satire site it didn't work. Sadly, they make the sane Christians look like terribly cruel people. (I do think it cruel to try to control people to this degree.) At the same time, he pulled up multiple hate pages against cosplayers and anime in general and basically said that my mom was exposing my little sis to satanism by letting her go to con. GAH.

It should be noted that Christwire is a satire website, much like The Onion. The articles written are meant to lampoon the religious right, and are not a product of it per se.
That said, the frequency with which it is mistaken for a legitimate source and the difficulty they have distinguishing themselves from the *actual* religious right is quite telling about just how mad this world can be.

I know, but my father is the sort of person who takes anything with the wording he wants and throws it loudly at people. He's stupid, but thinks himself a genius. He doesn't do background work on sources, and if you tell him he just gets completely pissed off. There is no reasoning with him, all he wants is complete control of our lives and anything that could make him look "weird" is bad to his eyes.

Some people do think like this about life, I used to be one of them. Gradually, I've come to know that God wants me to live, not cower in fear of whatever isn't from church. It comes from a highly distorted mindset that has nothing to do with Christianity itself. From experience, people who think like this don't actually base their dislike on religion, they merely feel uncomfortable with something and try to find every excuse to justify their discomfort.

Thinking this way is incredibly painful, regardless of whether these people know it or not. This isn't true religion, it's adaptation of emotional problems to religion.
