Top Television Shows Today Full of Garbage

I don't even know where to start here, I am just um.... confused? This article attempted to make a point, but ended up proving itself invalid. First, Modern Family and Big Bang Theory show adults with jobs that work for everything they have. There are very little curse words in these shows, (the one of the little girl cursing is bleeped, I don't think she even said the word). So, basically the reason for not liking these shows is because the one shows a gay couple with a daughter and the other talks about sex occasionally. Well, there is nothing wrong with being a gay couple with a child; it's exactly the same as any other family. Also, talking about sex among age appropriate adults is an accurate depiction of friends talking to friends;

No, homosexuals with a child is not like other families. It is wrong and destructive for the child. I don't care what two adults do to each other, but when they bring a child into the mix then it's wrong.

Ryantis' comment is just proof that society is being changed for the worst.

ryantis,

You definitely should have stopped short after this first point. I agreeded, and most real adults may have agreed.

The fact that you had to turn it into a such a long rant was a waste of your time and anyone else's.

and not neccessarily a horrible thing. It depends on the situation.
Again, with Family Guy and Grey's Anatomy the article complains about sexual situations and people with "non-traditional" families or sexual orientations. To that; I say so what, who cares. What is wrong with showing people every one is different and teaching tolerance even when acceptance isn't possible? Of course both of these shows do show inappropriate things no one would deny it. Family Guy is largely satire and Grey's Anatomy is a far stretch compared to anyones real life. However, that's kinda the point.
As for the Voice, whether the judges or contestants are "trashy" depends on who it watching it. I don't, so I won't pass judgement there.

Second, blaming absolutely everything on the "liberals" is just getting old. Everyone has known pretty much since humans learned to talk, that sex and violence is a basic human attraction. What about all the woman's romance novel's that have been going on forever? What about Shakespear, a large portion of Greek plays, dare I say it...... even the BIBLE! All of them have sex, violence, abuse, and language that was considered rude. So, why is it offensive now suddenly? Because, it doesn't align with your personal views of right and wrong. Funny how the very people who complain that we should adhere to Constitution (specially freedom of speech, and right to bear arms) are so obliviously hypocritical! We wants guns, but no violence on T.V.

We wants guns, but no violence on T.V. We want the right to practice our religion in schools and keep marriage between a woman and a man. However, other religions are all wrong shouldn't be in school. We can get divorced and married over and over again, but two men or two women is completely wrong. We get the freedom to be bigots, jerks, and poke our noses in everyone else's buisness, but can't handle it the other way around. If you want your free country and your liberties maybe look in the mirror and take stock. No one is forcing you to watch those shows. Don't like it? CHANGE THE CHANNEL! We don't even have to walk to the T.V. set anymore, just hit the handy remote. Want more programs for you? Pick a different channel, go watch Disney

Food network, I believe there are Christian based channels. Don't try to change what others do, unless you want them to try and change you.
If this article had given other examples of actual offensive behavior (being gay is not an offensive behavior, nor is it a disease) or offered a solution to the violence, drug usage, etc... then I would agree it's something that people need to reevaluate on a personal level. Should I watch this? Should I expose others to this? I agree drugs/alcohol/excess is glorified, but this article covered very little of it. However, all this article accomplishes is sounding holier than thou, hypocritacal "Conservative" Nazism. Yes, went there, a lot of Nazi troops went along with what they were told blindly.

Which in my opinion only is similar to how "Conservatives" blindly oppose change, oppose growth in our country and in our homes.

Sorry for the long rant and multiple replies.

I agree with you. I'm not a little child that needs to have her choice of entertainment limited by anyone for any reason. If I don't like what's on, I have a remote. And I'm quite capable of supervising my kids' viewing habits too.

How about sodomites living by Christians and being nice to the Christians. That would be a novel show.

The Bible does not have sex just for sex's sake. All the stories in the Bible are for teaching and for glorifying God. And you are proving you are just as intolerant about those with views different from yours.

If you stopped watching network television awhile ago because it had gotten so bad, you made the correct decision. It has continued to get worse. A few years ago, network television became dominated by cheaply made reality TV shows and talent contests, sitcoms with hyperactive manic characters, and socially liberal themes. Television has always pushed the edge when it comes to socially progressive themes. But at what point does it go too far? Perhaps when there are no other options left during prime time network TV.

The top ten most popular TV shows last fall contained few choices for...
