When did being raunchy become the new standard?
The filth that spews out of music and television….
Trying to find a decent comedian to listen to or a movie to watch is nearly impossible.
And then I read up on the Miley Cyrus incident. (Need I say more?)
Sometimes I think we’re living in the time of the cavemen. People behave like they have to respond to their every feeling and impulse.
“I’m an animal with no self-control!” is the new mantra.
For a culture that’s supposedly “civilized” we enjoy muck a bit too much.
Our obsession with sex is out of control.
What I find ironic is that no one wants to get married but everyone wants to hop into bed.
This craziness has seeped it’s way into Christian circles too. (Though no one is willing to talk about it.)
Today, it’s almost like you have to make a choice:
A) Be as crude and vulgar as you possibly can.
B) Be a Puritan.
I’m neither brazen nor puritanical in nature.
I just don’t want to abuse a gift from God.
I’ve had more single friends tell me, “Oh! It’s so cute you’re still a virgin.” or “Loosen up. You’ll never find a guy who’s a virgin anymore.”
Since when did the concepts of virginity and purity become “cute”?
It’s time we stop believing the cultural lies about sex because these lies are leading us to a dangerous place where even the most “civilized” and “evolved” among us can’t reason their way out.
