Recently, Hollywood hosted the 56th Annual Grammys. My problem with what I saw was the gross realization that Hollywood is dictating culture and the output of that is state and federal legislation not based on the good of the country but on pop culture’s whim. Frankly, I don’t like having someone shove things down my throat and tell me that if I don’t like it, then I’m a bad person. If I detect the influence at 31, I can only imagine the effect on younger generations.
From what I can see, Hollywood is a cesspool of deviant behavior, failed marriages, and superficial vanity like that of the Kardashians. I really don’t think Americas cultural future should be set and influenced by the likes of Kanye West and Madonna. This is the same Madonna that just recently tweeted out racial slurs and stood on stage promoting the enlightenment of gay marriage and trans-sexuality.
Truthfully, “Gay marriage” is a place holder for any given topic because I think of the destruction “Hollywood” has had in the lives of little girls who have looked at anorexic super models and thought “I’m not pretty unless I look like that” and little boys who grew up indoctrinated into misogyny by “artists” who songs about women as nothing more than “sluts and hoes” or have grown up watching their TV icons preach how fun it is “getting high”. This is the same Hollywood that now says a mom and mom using a turkey baster to get pregnant is the new normal and declares a cultural war for all who oppose it.
The root of my fear and apprehension is not the reality of guys kissing guys; it’s the long term cultural death that we as a society are suffering. We all think the world has gone mad and that “America” isn’t what we remember; yet no-one is willing to put their finger on why. The moral fiber of America is broken apart by failed fathers who abandon their children, 91 million people unemployed, 50+% divorced families, 55 million dead babies, legalized narcotics, a “dead God’, over crowed jails, 17 trillion in debt and now we want to hang our hats as “good people” on how accepting we are of gay marriage and trans-sexuality? I worry that if we don’t take a stand now for normal non-deviant behavior then will our children have anything to inherit? Is this the future we want to give them? Have we moved so far away from center that there isn’t even a right and wrong anymore? It breaks my heart to watch my nation’s soul die in the name of “progression” while we sit captivated by the escapades of Justin Bieber.
