    Television Ads.

    So Whille a lot of people are getting rid of Cable, we actually just signed up for it. We honestly new that with signing up for it there would need to be some censoring of television as cable shows have more "adult" content than prime time, although since our kids are REALLY into Disney Jr, and PBS we haven't gotten there quite yet. BUT and yeah there is a but; we came across an add that I wasn't able to switch fast enough. I was HORRIFIED as we were watching My Cat From Hell (pretty family oriented) on Animal Planet. It was put out by the Ad Council, and in it they compared presumably digitalized skeletons one of a black woman and an Oriental Man Kissing, the next of skeletons of two women kissing. I suppose with the world's direction I should not have been so horrified but I was just shocked. First that they would make a statement so bold as to compare interracial dating (which is meaningless, and who cares) to homosexuality. And secondly that they would give the appearance of skeletal similarity between the male and female body, (there are distinct differences on the skeletal level and the body does not look the same) and pretend its equal.... My brain just can't fathom this kind of false information regarding anatomy and clear fake comparisons between what was aa genuine civil rights problem and what is a perceived complaint.

    One of many reasons I do not watch TV, or even have access to TV programs in my home. No help I know, but . . . .
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    I know as a Christian you can't force people to act a certain way or even agree to certain morals, heck the Church itself is so very divided over Homosexuality itself that some Christians would even praise the add. But what would you do other than change the channel immediately and use the add to talk about what's wrong with the world to your kids?
