I think you are outraged over the wrong group. These people don't create an inmoral culture, they respond to it. They are out to make money and if that meant pretending to be a God fearing American (old difination) then that is what they will do. I don't blame them. I would do it in their shoes. We have to look elsewhere to find out how we got into this mess.

One group feed on the other. If no one watched this garbage, Hollywood wouldn't present it. And if Hollywood didn't produce it no one would see it. It's a bit like what came first the chicken or the egg. In 1939, Clark Gable shocked movie goers by uttering the word "damn." The Sopranos would have had no diaglogue if the F word that rhymes duck had been scrubbed from the script.

When something loses its shock value, it often becomes part of the common culture which has become crass and crude over the past 45 years.

Agreed, except that even in their shoes, I wouldn't do it. I've even been somewhat tested, as a matter of fact, and yep, it turns out I really wouldn't. But to the rest of your sentiments, absolutely true.

"I would do it in their shoes."

---and if I had the opportunity, I would do it in your shoes!
Angus T. Jones told the truth. In a religious video posted on YouTube, the former child actor who's the "half" man of the CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men" shocked the celebrity press by saying "I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."

Calling this show "filth" is like calling your Christmas tree an evergreen. Yet about 14 million Americans still love filling their head with this filthy show, and they don't want to be told what they're doing.

It doesn't surprise, then, that the pundits have turned on...
