Today a friend of mine, from another shcool was discriminated because of his taste in music. I know this happens often especially in the pit, however this is pretty bad, may not affect the people of the pit to the same extent because he is not your friemd but I believe you will still see the stupididty of what happened.

My friend Mark is a metalhead at a catholic school. He doesnt believe the religon. THere is this bible pusher named Ryan who keeps forcing the religon on him, but Mark just tells him he hates Jesus to get him to bugger off. A couple days ago MArk was talking to this girl he likes, they were talking about black metal in general, other then that i don't know. THis Ryan kid being offended of him talking about such "evil" music comes up and slams Marks head into the locker. Mark not knowing what the **** just happened tell sthe kid to **** off. Today Ryan filed a complaint to the school that metal is offensive. Now for MArk to stay in the school, he can't listen to metal, where metal band t shirts or talk about metal.

Now i know metal has been seen as evil music for a long time. however really i think this is a little far. THink of it this way he chooses to listen to metal, and he gets banned from the school because of it, thats' like choosing to be gay and being banned. THis is a little discriminatroy don't you think? Just want your opinions i n general ion this issue.

tl;dr my friend likes metal gets banned from school because of this

Shouldn't Ryan get suspended for slamming his head into a locker? That's pretty lame, but it's a private school, he can't do anything about it besides not go.

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.

Maybe if he wasn't a heathen and instead praised Jesus these things wouldn't happen to him

He should file a complaint saying that he is offended by getting his head slammed into a locker. That said, your friend could have been less of a douche to that other kid.

Pricks. It's music, its something that someone enjoys. Why the HELL should someone get banned for something they enjoy that isn't worshipping Jebus

Metal is misinterpreted my religious folks.
In fact, almost everything is misinterpreted by religious zombies.

If I were him, I would write a letter to the school, a very well written and researched letter explaining why metal isn't "the Devil's music".

And if that doesn't work, wear a slayer shirt to school and turn in your homework written in blood.

Whoa! wearing T-shirts with black metal band logos on them to catholic school is a no no? When the **** did that happen?

this situation is BS, but your friend needs to exercise a little bit of common since

actually he exercises caution on what shirts he wears, mostly iron maiden shirts is what he wears

I concur.

What do you mean, he can't listen to metal? How would they enforce that? If he's listening to it with earphones, nobody will know, unless they make him give them a listen, which seems unlikely.

Ryan needs to be reminded that his behaviour is very un-Christian. Also, a lot of rap, hip-hop and pop are just as offensive to his religion as metal is, and I'll bet he listens to it.

Unless he just likes gospel music.

I think the problem you're having is you're trying to apply logic to Christianity, a religion based on a cosmic zombie

3 Steps to make any Christian/Catholic Person back the fu.ck up.

1. Learn Aramaic
2. Learn how to use both sets of vocal chords
3. Speak Aramaic and English to said person in both languages at the same time, in a deep voice (the deeper the better).

He joined a catholic school because a student there forced him to and his parents allowed that? Then he got banned from metal music becuase the kid complained about it?

Tell him to tell the school that Ryan is a homosexual.

private schools, especially strict religious ones, are full of this, and it will never change. when you can enforce rules in the name of jesus, it is destined to be unfair and cruel stuff like this will happen

Thats flat out WRONG. I dunno, but maybe he could sue for discrimination? lol i dont know. But that is deffenetly not right. Its like telling someone they cant listen to jazz. Black metal isnt evil. I think thats complete bull****, for a whole school to tell him he has to do the same as everyone elce. Im pissed off now. Religin in general pisses me off because thats how they are. If you do something different its evil. Im not saying that its all bad, or that religon is bad, im jast saying i dont agree with any of there views. Thanks TS, now im all pissed off

Does he enjoy walking down the street scaring people with his spikes, and his coffin case? You know, the works?
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

Don't most catholic schools wear uniforms? I could care less about metalheads, but I feel bad that he apparently can't listen to his music anymore. Does he know there's Christian metal bands out there just as heavy as satanic ones

Everyone needs to learn to have respect for their surroundings I think. By that I mean that he should keep his musical tastes for an appropriate situation, like outside of school. I am all for freedom to express one self, but be aware of your surroundings.

Mark should file a complaint to the administrator against Ryan for slamming his head into a locker, and for being a fag. I heard Catholics don't take to kindly to homos.

It's worth a shot.

Quote by Trefellin
Yeah. Plant gay porn in Ryan's school bag and report him for sinning.


DO THIS.

Also, still not seeing how they can stop him from listening to it.

Even if they could, so what? Most Catholic schools here don't let you listen to any music on the grounds at all, full stop. None of those students have died.

agreed. the kid doesn't even seem respectful about the faith.
I see no sign of fortress.

tell him to tell the school about the positive messages of bands like death. also tell him about cannibal corpse, they had a quote that says something like "we wanted to take out our aggression through music rather than violence."

basically, it's better to listen to violent music and be a pacifist than to listen to 'nice' music and be violent.

Discrimination is everywhere....

But there is a fine line to it all. I am for freedom of speech and all that, but at the same time there is also a thing called ABUSING your freedom of speech which a lot of people don't care for too much.

Do I think a student should be allowed to wear a metal shirt in school...YES.

But is he wearing a shirt with stupid **** on it like "God Hates Us All" or "Pure ****ing Metal" or upside down crosses?

With him being in a catholic school and all, it doesn't look good. BUT, if he's not guilty of any of the stuff above, tell him to present his case respectfully and politely and I'm sure an understanding can be made.

If he handles this like a dumbass, then you might as well get him a gift card for The Gap or something.

How come I only hear about these kinds of stories on this site? I went to a Catholic high school, it was a relatively pretty liberal place. No one was discriminated against, unless you were an asshole or dickwipe, you were accepted by pretty much everyone.

I bet this wouldn't have happened if he didn't try so hard to be a "metalhead".

Your friend Mark sounds like a stereotypical "Metal Head." Its a Catholic school so he obviously knows that his dressing style and taste in music isn't smiled upon in that kind of school. Maybe Mark should have just gone to school to what? Learn. I suspect he acted out a lot to draw attention to himself.

Though, it is lame that he got in trouble when that Ryan guy supposedly slammed his head into a locker.
#39
Tell him to listen to Underoath and christian metal. Then see what the school does. That should screw them over.

Also, I went to a Christian school, and all my friends bar two or three at the very most are christians, and they don't care what I listen to, they would like me to be a christian too, but they know I'm not going to be and that they can't force me. The world needs more religious people to be like this. Not crazy "force your beliefs on everybody" people.
