offensive for the sake of offense. Religion is a very fragile thing

absolutely. There's that aspect of someone who might be homosexual putting on the satanism thing just for shock value.

There is a very strong element of, "your belief is so offensive to me, I'm going to adopt the belief or value system that is most offensive to you, so you'll know how it feels and come to empathize with what a terrible person you are." 

It is working swimmingly for helping people bridge their differences while learning how to co-exist. It is a shame we didn't try this approach sooner.

Or maybe it's just in-group-recognition-signalling; if you get it, you're part of the intended audience, if you don't, you're not.

(Something that NEVER happens on BBSen.)

Sacramento Citadelphia concluded that the correct plural of BBS is BBSi. 


:D :D :D 

I suppose that there is an element of in-group signaling involved. I was raised pretty WASPy - and although I adopted some of the religious symbolism of the punk scene... crucifix earrings more than anything - I recalls specifically being uncomfortable with both "Personal Jesus," by Depeche Mode and "Jesus He Knows Me," by Phil Collins, even in the day. 

Little hints I was going to grow up to be a Conservative.
