I have always wanted 2 know Why do people persecute people for being different. I mean I am a pagan and I listen 2 heavy metal, but just because i listen to metal people say I am a satanist. So just talking about that i remember one day at school i was going to my locker and some kid says get out of the country u satanist, so of course I said why do you think i am a satanist. Then he said this is a good country we don't need blood thirsty sons of b****es like you. My reply was if u think about it I have not started any wars or persecuted people who don't believe in what I believe so you should call me that. but what I'm trying to say is life is so damn hard 4 people that are different when there is no normal in life. and think about this next time u call some one a satanist Satan means some one who opposes something so technically Jesus was satin because he opposed the roman government.

I applaud this. I'm Pagan as well and don't understand why we're descriminated against so much. When I tell someone I celebrate Yule instead of Christmas, they tell me it's "wrong." When I wear a pendant shaped like a pentacle, people call me evil and a devil-worshipper. Our religion is pure and doesn't involve nailing a dude to a cross.
