Adam Lambert’s kiss shows what’s wrong with America

November 24, 2009

Post asserts that Lambert’s kiss is just the latest manifestation of what’s wrong with this hyper-sexualized society. This is more of a perental issue than a sexual preference issue. Nowadays, parents can’t even watch TV with their kids anymore because eeverything is about sex. I would have been offended if my kids were looking for Taylor Swift and had to see that. I would’ve been offended if they saw the Britney Spears/Madonna kiss too. Or if it was Halle Berry & Jamie Fox, the point is the same. I’m not talking about movies we pay to go see. Almost everything on TV is soft porn nowadays. If we can have 5 second delays for swears, these things should be delayed too because they ARE planned just as Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” was planned. Just listen to their publicists before the shows. Whether it’s the AMAs, Kim Kardashian sex tapes, or Nelly’s swiping credit cards down women’s behinds, we have puished the envelope too far. For the sake of our kids, it’s time to close the envelope

Muslims vs. Christians: who’s the bigger terrorist?

November 21, 2009

http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-359395

Post asserts that, as expected, the critique of Major Hassan has turned into a condemnation of Islam. Truthfully & historically speaking though, Christianity & the Bible have been a source of terror for many. Whether it’s the subjugation of women in the American home, the enslavement of Africans, or the destruction of Native Americans, Christianity does not have clean hands. Christianity has served as a force for good for millions of people throughout out history, but we can’t neglect the evil. Islam has also made great contributions to the world, particularly in areas like math and science. The goal of this post is not to compare religious contributions. The goal is to remind us that one person’s terrorist is another person’s freedom fighter. Many reading this will say that the enslavers, for example, weren’t true Christians but will say the 911 hijackers represented true Islam. That’s hypocritical. Every religion has blood on its hands. Less blood will be shed if we stopped condemning each other’s religions and embraced them instead wherever possible.

Obama’s bow vs. Latino in America vs. “Made in China”

Post asserts that it is hypocritical to say that Obama must preserve American culture and strength overseas and then say people who come to America must abandon their culture and speak only English and practice a mainstream American religion. Furthermore, we should pay more attention to how we bow politically and economically to countries like China everyday. Case in point: all of us posting comments are doing it on products that weren’t even made in America. Maintaining our economic status is more important than the President respecting cultures overseas. If you want him to preserve American culture outside of our borders, why don’t we respect the cultures of those who come here? If you’re a businessman doing business in Japan, you learn to bow. Why is it wrong then for the President? Come on people. We can do better and talk about something productive…

Ft Hood shooting is more American than Islamic fundamentalism

Post believes that while we must continually mourn this tragedy and come together as a country, we must also not make this issue a referendum on Islam, even if we find writings from this man that we deem extremist. Though this was a military tragedy, the way this transpired was more American in nature. From “going postal” in the 80s to Columbine, to the OKC bombing, to Virginia Tech (all crimes not committed by Muslims), this is how a select group of Americans choose to vent their frustrations. If we are going to make this about Islam, let’s have some balance and also look at the Muslim Americans who gave their lives fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan. Colin Powell spoke about seeing American flags on the tombstones of American Islamic soldiers, not the Islamic star & crescent. Let’s condemn the act and not a religion.
