7 Lies Promoted by the Media

I am sick of sexual activity being shoved down my throat. Is it right to open the bedroom door and invite all kinds of media in? Is it right that I have to pay for it on my cable or network?

Not just “NO!” but may the fleas of a thousand camels invade the armpits of those who are trying to do just that. Excerpt from AFA Action Alert email letter received several years ago and my comments on the alert:

You probably aren’t aware that Johnson & Johnson is also a charter advertiser on the homosexual network LOGO.

No, I wasn’t! Thank you for letting me know this. According to their commercials they are a family-owned corporation interested in family. This is a surprise to me that they are actually interested in promoting open bedroom door policies, or should I say open closet door policies.

Thanks to Johnson & Johnson’s commitment to financially support homosexuality, it is only a short time before this premiere homosexual-based network will become a part of your local cable package (if it isn’t already).

It is not. Praise God! But how long before I’ll have to cut off my dish net because this garbage will be put on my TV?

While Johnson & Johnson voluntarily helps get the network off the ground, you will be forced to pay for it as part of your regular cable bill.

No, I won’t. I won’t pay for something that should remain behind closed doors. This is why I don’t get the movie channels because the 1 or 2 good movies which are shown, are far overshadowed by the filthy.

My problem is not homosexuality. That’s been going on for eons. My problem is that there is a force at work here that is demanding a pat on the back and an assurance that the behavior is okay and a normal lifestyle. Why do they need assurance that it’s okay? If you have to question if something is wrong or right, then 99 times out of 100 it is wrong. Why does any homosexual need to advertise what he/she does in private? Keep it behind closed doors! Please.

But, wait! I’m not done. It seems that the American public is being deceived about a lot of things. For instance, if someone from Pluto were to watch American television in order to form an opinion about what Americans laugh about, cry about, and what is normal, then the Plutonian would understand that:

  1. adultery is normal and something to laugh about
  2. homosexuality is also normal and quite funny as well
  3. sex before marriage is absolutely necessary
  4. children are rulers of the home
  5. murder cases are solved in one hour
  6. the bad guys are always caught
  7. and even though many children are kidnapped every year, if the child is blonde and beautiful the media is outraged at the colossal gall of the kidnapper.

Too bad our morals are judged by TV and movies. Much to my surprise and amazement, as I’m quite sure to your surprise as well, what we have been fed by the media is a lie.

According to a study on divorce located at Divorce Peers.com and George Barna.

  • 64% of American couples preserve their marriage after infidelity
  • Only 33% of American marriages have experienced at least one marital split
  • But of Evangelical Christians 26% have been divorced
  • 1990 the American divorce rate was 47%, in 2002 it was 38% and in 2009 it was 33%
  • only 4.5% of American women admit to cheating (Men’s Health Best Life) and 15% in Oprah Magazine
  • 5% of men admit to cheating (Men’s Health Best Life)
  • 59% admit cheating on their spouse but
  • 68% say they have been cheated on however but,
  • 90% of all American say that adultery is wrong
  • 92% of those surveyed say they would never cheat on their spouse even if their spouse would never find out.

Is it just me? Are those figures staggering to anyone but me? I thought that 50% of all marriages ended in divorce and those were caused by adultery (I see it on TV, it must be right! I can find it on Wikipedia so those figures must be correct!) When in actual fact, since 1990, the divorce rate has decreased. I thought the divorce rate for Christians was the same as non-Christians and that is not correct.

It is the power of saturation, I think. When we see it over and over we think it has permeated society when in actual fact, it is far less frequent than we realize. Does saturation make it more right? Or is the power of saturation causing us to bend to some expectation that we truly do not want to do? Does society dictate what is normal and what is right? Or is it up to the individual to establish the Line of Enough, put on the armor and say, “I’ve tolerated as much as I’m going to tolerate. Do not cross this line!”

    Yes! Indeed the problem with our society today is too much exposure to sex. Why. even some pastors include sex on their preachings and during worship services which I think is wrong. For me a worship service does not include promoting sex in the christian home. I think the problem of sex has penetrated the church too deep already.

    Exactly. Sex within marriage is a beautiful and wonderful thing… Song of Solomon is a wonderful example of how beautiful. I think today’s society has succumbed to the 30 Second Satisfaction Syndrome. I want it NOW, so that we think it is all about ME. That is not a healthy way to live or think. It invites despair and depression. Thank you for commenting 🙂

    altfreq11, When you watch television (both for entertainment and for news), there is an abundance of the 7 things I’ve mentioned. I have also seen a huge amount of extremely shoddy journalism. I studied journalism in college. If I had turned in some of the work that I see today, my credits would never have transfered and I never would have graduated. When Bob Livingston stood up in Congress and confessed to having an affair then he resigned because he felt that his lack of judgement had impaired his abilities to serve his constituents, he challenged others who had affairs that he personally knew about in Congress to “fess up, and resign”. His challenge was met with grins and whispers. It was about the same time that our illustrious president was facing impeachment for having oral sex with an aide… you may recall that? Since then, it has become worse, not better. If you want proof, just turn on the telly and spend a couple of hours. Journalism in the print media is almost as bad. For a thumbnail exposure, pick up Sarah Palin’s book, “Going Rogue”. It’s an eyeopener. There’s not enough space here to list all the outlets of entertainment that adhere to those 7 things. If you want to know how well it’s working, go read the comments on my report on the video “Collateral Murder”. That is located here>>http://www.bloggernews.net/124231

Palin has been notoriously inaccurate – why would you believe anything she says? What do Clinton and Livingston have to do with anything you’re alleging?

Isn’t this a tad hypocritical of you?

    I am really sorry we are having this communication problem, altfreq11. Why don’t you prove to me that these not lies? Prove that after the president admitted to inappropriate conduct, there were not numerous jokesters on late night TV commenting on it. Tell me there are no shows or movies that have premarital sex as common and expected. Prove that high school teens who choose abstinence are not ridiculed in certain parts of the country. Prove to me that children are not rulers of the home, that there is no such thing as cyberbullying of teens to the point of some committing suicide. Remember, “media” is not defined by TV news, newspapers and other news outlets. It also includes anytime of communication outlets such as movies, TV shows, books, blogs, internet sites. There is an insidious, viral cancer creeping across America. It is causing a detachment from Biblical principles which this country was built upon and making the detachment appear germane to “normal” lifestyles. ### If, altfreq11, you think I am advertising something I believe should be private, I am sorry that, again, our lines of communication are down. God created the right and proper way of procreation, and the proper form of sexual satisfaction. He devotes and entire book of the Bible about it. This is a discussion within which are biblical principles of Christian living as well human lifestyles. God said it, I’m just repeating it.

    I’m not saying the media caused it. I’m saying the media is not an accurate gauge of real American lifestyles. Do you have proof it is not?

    Satan, of course. Who else? Read my post again, altfreq… ** I won’t pay for something that should remain behind closed doors. This is why I don’t get the movie channels because the 1 or 2 good movies which are shown, are far overshadowed by the filthy.** Again… where is your proof that media are not promoting the lies? “God created the right and proper way of procreation, and the proper form of sexual satisfaction. He devotes and entire book of the Bible about it. This is a discussion within which are biblical principles of Christian living as well human lifestyles. God said it, I’m just repeating it.” altfreq: Do you have any proof of this? Read your Bible. God clearly outlines principles for living and the consequences for living outside the principles, both individually and corporately.
