Entertaining Sexual Abuse

Endsexualexploitation.org

America’s voracious sexual appetite will get the next installment of the Fifty Shades of Grey series June 18th. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCSE) fears that domestic abuse will be rationalized as millions of viewers pay to watch a wealthy man torture his current “love interest”. Grey, retells the first novel in the Fifty Shades books, but from the perspective of Christian Grey—the man with the violent and abusive personality.

There is absolutely zero entertainment value for millions of women who suffer sexual abuse at the hands of sick and deranged men. Thanks to Hollywood, this brutality is now sexy entertainment. Even worse, audiences could see wealth and power as meaningful tools to abuse others.

As you go about your day notice the clock—every minute 24 people become a victim to rape, or some sort of physical violence by an intimate partner here in America. With movies like Grey, it only perpetuates the problem, even normalizing it for some. The message audiences could receive is that victims of sexual abuse can “fix” a controlling partner by being obedient. FULL POST

ABC Family Channel Highlights Transgender Lifestyle

One Million Moms/Becoming Us

While everyone’s still deciding how to respond to Bruce-Caitlyn Jenner, ABC Family Channel began airing Becoming Us (Monday 9:00 PM). The docu-series coyly says that “genders may bend, but family never breaks.” Honestly? The show follows the struggles a young boy faces after his parent’s divorce and the transition his dad makes to living as a woman.

Ironically, the boy has a girlfriend with a transgendered father. While the show is normalizing the transgender lifestyle, the reality is that it is hardly normal. While the discussions range from reassignment surgery to purchasing bras, the son realizes he will no longer have a dad. So who will become his male role model—or does this generation no longer need male and female role models?

Financial support for shows like Becoming Us need to be halted. Transgenderism is a topic for discussion, but not on a channel sold for “Family” viewing. One Million Moms is providing an easy way to contact sponsors of Becoming Us and express your disapproval. Entertainment and advertising dollars are irrevocably linked; therefore we still have a voice in shows that reach our shared airwaves. Click Here to vote with your pocketbook.

How Bible Believing Christians Should Respond To Bruce Jenner

The biblical response to the cross dresser that now calls himself "Caitlyn" Jenner should be very simple if you actually consider what the Bible says about this matter.

Deuteronomy 22:5- The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.

That Bible scripture should tell you more than enough of how you should respond to do Bruce Jenner going through a sex change. The man plans on having an operation that will only make him physically appear as a woman, but he will always be male in the eyes of God. If you are one of those people that want to applaud Bruce Jenner for his so called bravery despite of what the Bible says, consider the next verse.

Isaiah 5:20- Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Bruce Jenner hates the way that God made him and woe unto him for that. You should not be calling him courageous. If you are one of those worldly Christians that want to do so anyways, then why don't you publicly applaud Jesus for dying on the cross for your sins? Jesus will always be more worthy of praise than ANY of us. Myself included. For the sake of God, quit idolizing the so called "bravery" of transgenders. That being said, Bruce Jenner is lost and in need of saving. See here for how to be saved.

TV Land’s Impastor

TV Land Impastor

In the name of comedy, TV Land is joining the God-mocking entertainment bandwagon.

Here’s the story line: a man steals a pastor’s identity and soon gets hired, sight unseen, to lead a church. Posing as a gay preacher, the laughs are generated when he arrives at his church and gets caught sleeping around with women and not acting like a Christian, much less a pastor. The show depicts pastors negatively and spews lies about Christians and Christianity.

TV Land pokes fun at the faithful, but in reality, it deeply offends God and all those who honor him. The show is scheduled to air July 15 at 10:30 PM. Christians have a voice and a pocketbook. One Million Moms continues to fight for clean airwaves, and you can take action by sending a message to TV Land informing them that Impastor is inappropriate and won’t be supported. As much as TV Land considers this show entertaining, when it comes to the bottom line, they listen to people who angrily notify their advertisers. It’s all about money. So click here to send your message.

Lucifer

Fox Network

Just in case we don’t have enough dastardly entertainment options, Fox is debuting Lucifer. In this brand new series, Lucifer is caring and likable in his human flesh. Since Satan was bored and bummed as Lord of Hell, he resigns his lofty position and retires to Los Angeles. Now he gets his joy from helping the Los Angeles police punish criminals. To add interest to this plot, God sends his emissary, an angel named Amenadiel, to convince Lucifer to return to his underworld home. The pilot episode is replete with graphic violence, nightclub scenes (with all the subsequent scantily-clad women) and demonic activity.

American Family Association is urging concerned people to sign the petition requesting Fox Network to drop their plans to air this deplorable program.

Adultery Cures 7 Year Itch?

A & E Network doesn’t get it. When “Neighbors With Benefits” failed due to lack of sponsorship after two measly episodes, producers became anxious to see if “Seven Year Switch” might resonate with audiences.

Both shows highlight adultery and encourage it as entertainment and perhaps the spice any marriage needs to remain vibrant.

In “Seven Year Switch” four couples “at a crossroads in their relationship” will get the opportunity to not just separate from their current spouse but to live with another person—yes including sleeping with him/her. Consider it a two-week experimental relationship. After this brief hiatus from married life the original couples reunite and determine whether they should renew their vows or call it quits.

Gena McCarthy, one of the senior programming executives overseeing this venture, describes “Seven Year Switch” as a way to see if absence really does make the heart grow fonder. FULL POST
