However, I'm not going to comment on beliefs. How do we know who's right? Maybe Tom's wrong for playing the songs he plays and Dave's right for denouncing certain songs.

That we don't agree with him (and I certainly don't) is here nor there. They're his beliefs, not ours.

I have no time for religion at all, but if other people do then fine. Unless they kill people and blame it on religion. That's different (and isn't really religion either).
This.

Nice. I concur, by the way. I'll even buy your ticket if it's true.

So seriously, though - is Araya really a practicing Catholic, or is that just some bullshit?

Most Mexicans are "culturally" Catholic yet practice the religion pretty terribly. I would imagine he is the same. I'm sure he probably believes in god, agrees with some biblical teachings etc., but I doubt he regularly attends church. Whether it's hip to still sing about Satanic stuff and claim to be a devote Catholic or not, he's still pretty terrible at taking his religion seriously if he sings about Satanism, human sacrifice, necrophilia, mass murder etc. while performing in front of burning pentagrams.
I'm glad he still does it, but it doesn't give him Catholic points. Same with most christians who don't hate gays. Awesome, but they are doing it kind of wrong.

Yea...as much as I liked Aggressive Perfector, I would have liked Antichrist even more. Also, Araya isn't Mexican.

Yeah, he's Chilean. I think that "automatically" makes you Catholic too, though.

Have you got religion? ... Are you saved? ... Do you love Jesus? Brother, god can save you. ... Jesus is the sinner's friend. ... Rest your head on Jesus ... dear, dear Jesus! Curse 'til thunder shakes the stars! Curse 'til this blasphemy is cursed from the face of heaven! Curse 'til the hissing name of Jesus, which writhes like a snake in a snare, is driven from the kingdom of faith.

I believe Tom had a somewhat strict religious upbringing, but I don't think he's a "practicing" Catholic still. I think I read somewhere that he's a believer, but doesn;t really practice Christianity or Catholicism.

It seems to me he's sorta like me in that sense: I'm a Confirmed Catholic and believe in God + Jesus Christ, but I don't go to church or really practice religion (well, I admit I do pray before football games and for relatives + my girlfriend). I don't do it to be blasphemous, I just choose not to. It's just me, but I personally don't have an issue w/ being Catholic + listening to Slayer, or for that matter, Deicide. It's not like I run around shouting "Death To Jesus", so I don't think it's a big deal. It may sound like I'm rambling, but that's how Tom is, I think.

It appears Dave is just devout. Not my thing, but good for him. I read somewhere that religion is the 1st thing in his life that's ever make him truly happy. So if that means not playing 'The Conjuring', go for it.
