Trying to cash on worried parents Sep 18, 2005
The author is just trying to cash on moral panic and the natural concerns of parents with a sensationalistic histerical piece that is misleading, non factual and completly useless for any practical purpose.

I have one thing to say to this crap. Jesus save my tattooed old school goth behind from your followers. What a silly, hysterical woman. I am more concerned about saving my daughter from people like her.

I have to say that this is possibly the most sensationalist misinformed piece of tripe I have ever come across. I agree fully with all of the other reviews and their comments. Not only is this the worst type of religious scaremongering (before you bible bashers start I am a good Catholic boy, educated by priests anyone) I have seen in a long time, it's just plain offensive to anyone who indulges in the odd piuercing or enjoys dance music and raves or God forbid...dresses in black (catholic priests). I think this books sales rank speaks volumes for it. The author must be quite worried about the state of the world today when books about bestiality are selling more than their guide to emerging threats. In brief...if you want to completely distance yourself from your children, if you do not want to understand their problems in the most important years of their lives, if you are fundamentalist, sensationalist or just ignorant to other cultures and lifestyles then this book is for you. If on the other hand you are a normal sane human the only good this book will serve will be to scare you away from organised religion and it's draconian beliefs forever.

Not only is this woman preaching hysterical and wildly inaccurate attitudes towards what most of us parents consider to be a pretty important aspect of our lives (the growth of our kids into decent adults) the ridiculously over the top diatribes and fundamentalist doctrines she spouts, if taken seriously, could easily blind a parent to the real issues their teen is going through.
Frankly I think the attitudes expressed are dangerous and could be highly detrimental to a growing teen if taken seriously.
pie? Mar 25, 2003
