GUEST,Anonny Mouse Folklore: Are bright colors evil? (51* d) RE: Folklore: Are bright colors evil? 16 Dec 05


Colors are colors-we put the interpretation on them. Red gets brought up alot as good and bad, like the color of the devil but also can symbolize martyrs. Black is Amish wear, plain etc. but also associated with death. Most churches, synagogues except maybe hard core orthodox, dont much care what colors people wear. Doesnt the Supreme Court have to attend some kinda "red mass" or something every year? Anyway how can a color be evil? Like saying people with brown eyes are all good and blue eyes bad or something. Dopey. Bright colors are in houses of worship on altars, pulpits and stuff and look at how priests and the Pope dress up in reds and golds and purples for services or official functions-cardinals always wear red. Yellow means a coward but the color of the sun. We feel blue but blues is cool music-cool color. Nah bright colors arent "evil." People can be evil no matter how they dress. Lookit Hitler-Mr. Brown or olive green.
