(Sorry, don't know how to hyperlink on my phone). Someone posted this BS publicity stunt on Facebook. I think one of the main reasons I keep drifting further from religion is this belief that sexuality - outside of marriage between one man and one woman for the purpose of having babies - is disgusting and shameful. Listen, maybe we need higher standards for what is shown on TV and easily available to kids. But I don't see these people complaining about violence. Harming and shooting and blowing up bodies is fine, but finding pleasure in them? Never.


For those who don't want Allen West in their browser history, here it is in all it's glory. The comments are the worst, though. I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but I’ve become an old prude. I don’t think scantily-clad women should spread their legs on tv in prime time. I wish song lyrics didn’t have to include profanity and overt sexual references. I think men look awesome in traditional tuxedos, and I wish they would honor formal occasions by wearing them. And therefore, I completely understand why contemporary Christian music artist Natalie Grant -nominated for two awards – walked out of Sunday’s Grammy show. Hat tip to our friends at The Black Sphere for reporting. Grant and her husband went to the show to proudly represent gospel music, but left the show early after having heard and seen a bit too much. I’m with them. I do believe art represents life, and sadly moral decay in our nation was on display on Sunday. I generally watch these shows because I want to make sure I’m up to speed with what’s going on — and I know it’s every generation’s job to try to shock the previous one. But I’m not shocked. I’m just really, really disappointed. And I haven’t even watched the State of the Union yet…
