Oprah as Howardette Stern – Only Okay for Kids?

Oprah as Howardette Stern – Only Okay for Kids?

Has it really come to this (no pun intended)?  Oprah Winfrey asking a (nympho) guest the following, er, somewhat personal question on her show that is not (yet?) considered “for adults only”:

“So you've had men ejaculate in your face?"

Of course, it is REALLY only all about ratings, right?  Public morality and any deleterious moral influence of the younger generation should never be allowed to get in the way of making a buck, right?

I mean, seeing she is a billionaire, we can understand why Oprah would want to push the moral envelope to make a couple more shekels, right?  (End sarcasm.)

Talk about the mainstreaming of porn.  

Let’s be honest:  Oprah’s question would probably not even phase many middle school girls today,  a number of whom probably have sexual tales to tell that would eclipse the wildest things done by their mothers and big sisters.

Amazingly, when I was a kid in Junior High, I never even thought such a thought (as is addressed in Oprah’s question) – and I was hardly an angel.

Obviously, the porno industry has changed the American (and global) moral landscape – and hardly for the better.

The Bible tells us that evil men will wax worse and worse.  (That couldn’t be happening before our very eyes, could it?)

Once the “genie” is out of the bottle, there really is no putting it back.

I truly fear that such gross degeneration in public morality only makes our country more prone to Divine judgment – judgment that could make Hurricane Katrina look like child’s play.

That is mild compared to the garbage on some of the other cable channels. I'm not talking about HBO or Showtime or Playboy which have to be ordered separately. I'm talking about channels on what is usually called "Expanded Basic", the roughly 75 channels most people have (and the kids have in their bedrooms!). Try watching Comedy Central and see CARTOONS with talk of erections, masturbation, oral sex, incest, necrophilia, etc. etc. etc. The same subjects joked about by comedian after comedian. Oh they bleep the F word but the message and vulgarity are still there. A great message for impressionable youth! I'm not a prude or frankly not a very religious man...but this offends me greatly.

Now don't get me started on the cultural rot called "rap" or "hip hop" which glorifies thugs, gangs and sexism (all women are whores whose only purpose is for the sexual pleasure of men...by force if necessary...in rap!) and condones every uncivil and criminal act up to and including murder. Or those violent video games which do the same thing and additionally act as simulators for murder!

It's a sick, sick, sick society and I wish I had the answer flush all this stuff down the toilet where it belongs!

ed -- good comment! Thank you for stopping by. You are exactly right: The only reason Oprah can do this is because -- compared to the rest of the stuff that is going on -- she is quite mild. Thank you, again, for your astute observations. -- gunjam
