I decided to make this because I've noticed over the years that an incredibly high percentage of UGers seem to make comments like "well my parents won't let me listen to [insert band here] because they're satanic" or, for example, the "my dad is planning my sex life" thread, or things like that. So answer the poll: do you think your parents are religious nutcases, or at least extreme about religion?

I think the results will be interesting in two ways: A.) Are musicians/guitarists more prone to using music as a form of social rebellion against their parents, or (B.) Are there simply more fundamentalist Christians than I thought there were?

My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.

Mine go to church pretty reguarly, but they're by no means nutcases. I can listen to what I want, do what I want, hang around with whoever I want etc.
#5
No, they just think my music is weird ( I am ghost, AFI, Abney park Ego likeness). They haven't actually heard the music, i ordered some CDs and they read the lyrics so it's understandable. However my dad is into aliens and thinks he's going to live to 135...

They used to dress me up like jesus and tell me I had sinned against the romans if that counts.

Thy just don't like my music, that's all. They do go to church irregularly, but they're by no means fundamentalists, they despise fundamentalists.

No, not at all. Although we're officially catholic we're far from religious and in terms of music my parents are very tolerant. My mother loves Metallica and my father admitted that meshuggah are pretty interesting, although he yould never really listen to them.
But yeah, not religious at all and very tolerant...maybe there's a connection between those...
#17
My parent's aren't religious.

But they're just wary about me listening to certain bands or going to gigs and stuff because they've heard the horror stories of kids going satan crazy and killing themselves and others. But as the years have gone on they've accepted my music tastes and just let me get on with it. They're protective, and that's what parents should be. Just not ridiculously over protective.

No, only my Dad is religious, and he keeps it to himself.

They can still get overprotective at times though.

My parents are Christian, but they're very loose Christians.

And they don't force their religious beliefs on me.

There is some sort of spiritual crap she believes in.
Some sort of greenery tied in a bundle next to my back door, went around the perimeter with salt... that sort of crap.
Just plain old insane really.

That's weird, and highly uncomfortable to think about.

On topic, yes, my mother is a complete religious nutbag... she thinks every little thing I do is going to send me straight to hell. Meh, I do what I want.

Quote by GeekInThePink
I'm actually more religious than my parents.

Same.
The only band I'm not allowed to listen to is Cradle of Filth, and thats because of their 'Jesus is a...' slogan.
But thats ok, because I reckon they're rather stupid anyway. I mean, I know they were trying to be contraversial, but why attack the oh so safe target of mainstream Christianity, when you could but a picture of Mohammed on a t-shirt and be done with it.

my mum and sister are quite religious whereas my dad and me arent. its strange how piety has gone down the female side of my family and common sense has gone down the male side

No. I'm an atheist, raised in an atheist family. My parents didn't want me to be baptized (I am not) and I was pulled out religion classes in primary school.

As far as I understand the stereotype, those 'religious nutcases' you speak of are mostly found in the 'bible belt' of the U.S.A.

My parents are atheists like me =]

No, they're pretty hardcore atheists.

My parents have me go to church.
Not very religious, they don't make me believe anything, or teach me any facts of Christian ways.
We just go.
It's very dumb.
#39
my parents aren't massive religious nutjobs, but i've had pretty huge arguments with them over Satanism, trying to convince them that it's not as evil as it's made out to be. i'm not actually satanist, but i stick up for the whole idea, and hey, it's just something to do when i'm bored
