public flogging is one thing Ron, but, what is happening here in this time is that everyone is deeming it acceptable...I have to wonder about the mentality and concept of people when a show like "Desprate Housewives" has a following of 23 million...that in itself frightens the hell out of me....what society deems entertainment????? And like many shows, it is suggesting that that kind of behavior is acceptable. It promotes negative response and actions, instead of dealing with what could be little problems...
Public flogging or not, someone's got to stand up for some sort of morals and thumbsdown to aggrivated moral assult.
Again....no one is being asked to consider first the many hearts they hurt by such irresponsible behavior...
Do I sound like an old fuddy guys...Good..cause it's wrong...wrong and an intentional assassination of relationships...trust...belief
if the public doesn't get it soon and reverse this damage, where will it end?
With millions of broken hearts? Come on guys, you write poetry, and understand the sensitivity of this subject and I'm certain that many of you have unfortuately experienced this. We are becoming a society which laughs at what we should deem as mature adults, immoral and corrupt.
And again....I'm not judging anyone, I'm judging bad behavior! Which is what more people should do...we're promoting through television that it's ok to act like this...and it's not ok...to rip out peoples hearts, chew them up and spit them out....and that's what' s happening to families...is it no wonder children are confused when families become so dysfunctional? Is it any wonder teens are cutting themselves...committing suicide?
No one seems to think about these things before...talk about self absorpstion?
If you wanna mess around, then have the respect if not for yourself, for your families, to leave your spouse first!
My goodness, doesn't anyone think about the children and the confusing signals they're being sent. How'd you like to sit down and tell your child...mommie or daddy's having an affair? Talk about taking away innocence?
Destroying someone's life..for what, a moment of excitement?
I'm speaking very emotionally about this b/c it is a subject which should be addressed...by millions....and has nothing to do with religion...just some respect for self, and others connected whom will be destroyed by such permissivness?
Ron, I really believe if more people would deem this behavior unacceptable (public flaggings) perhaps we'd get our ship restored and ready to sail again?
I dunno? What the answer is, but this is indeed how I feel and firmly stand by it.
