I'm not saying there's zero chance of them being attacked, but people are acting like we're a bunch of degenerate morons who can't control ourselves, and I don't think that's true.
I'll readily admit to buying into the nutty Slayer fan stereotype, but the thing is that the stereotype exists for a reason. There are a fair number of screwball Slayer fans out there, and it takes only one crazy violent asshole to ruin it for everyone. There were thousands in line at the memorial from what I heard, I would be very surprised if there wasn't at least one insane dude who would've carved up the WBC dudes like a Thanksgiving turkey.

And of course the WBC doesn't represent the majority of the religious community. Just like how the freaks who carve SLAYER into their forearms don't represent the majority of Slayer fans. All I'm saying is that I'm grateful that the two groups didn't get the chance to interact.

All good points, but I don't think there are nearly as many of those crazy fans as it may seem. And even if one was in attendance, the inevitability of being sued up the ass is a pretty big deterrent. It could have happened, I just think that the chances were very low. But yeah, it's best that there was never that opportunity in the first place.

Looked like a good time. Tom not being there is weird, but we all grieve differently. Maybe he just didn't want to go, or felt he had nothing to add to proceedings.

Cool t-shirt too, would totally pick one up should they go on sale.

Is it confirmed that he wasn't there or are we just going by him not being in those pictures and not saying something? If that's the case, he could have just been keeping a low profile, which is understandable.

Perfect example of why I will no longer buy their albums or travel far for their shows.

don't you guys think that the profit from that merch would go to some sort of charity ? I don't know, but I sure hope so.

If it's the case well no problem there


Cheers !

If it did I think they would have made it known.

edit: Nevermind, I just looked at the photo of the shirt and there's a paper underneath the price that says all proceeds will be donated to MusiCares.
