Not God’s Definition of Family…

Have you ever felt that the television networks are always trying to cram a new series down your throat? I don’t mean they are just promoting the new series. Rather, they seem to have a hidden (or not so hidden) agenda in the program. 

The increase of shows with prominent gay characters is an example. While a very small percentage of Americans are homosexual, if you watch today’s comedies you would think the gay community is the most dominant group in the world.

Take the typical “marriage” on television. The guy is a wimp—he’s fat, bald, out of shape, and passive. His wife is hot, beautiful, wise, and discerning. Men look pathetic on most TV shows. Their wives and their kids talk to them like they are idiots. Why? Because someone out there wants it to be acceptable for men to be idiots.

Now we have one more show we don’t need on television. “Modern Family” on ABC is called “a family we can relate to” and a show that is “right on target.” In USA TODAY, Robert Bianco writes in his review, “Times…have changed, and families have changed with them. . . . Mom has an extended family, and they’re the ‘modern’ part of the title.” Let’s see, her dad has a trophy wife, and her brother has a gay partner and they have an adopted child.

When we laugh at sin, we lighten up on sin. When lifestyles that the Bible condemns are portrayed as normal, we are attacked for opposing them. Let’s just hope that no one watches. The best thing that could happen to this “modern family” is for them to be tuned out, cancelled, and quickly forgotten.

I’m just wondering, has anyone asked the question, “Why do people buy the DVDs of old series like the Andy Griffith Show and Dick Van Dyke?” I’ll tell you why: you can watch them with your kids and grandkids and not have to cover their ears, close their eyes, or explain sexual innuendos. Oh for the simple days when father knew best!

  1. Good Morning Michael: From reading your blogs, I seem to be the only person who has been reading them and sending you a reply. There are a few exceptions. About this one: I have always contended that the writers for these modern TV programs have a PHD in psychology. They play mind games with the public – sad as it is, the younger, impressionable people are influenced by this perverted behavior. I am ready for some Andy Griffith type programs or Father Knows Best. How about you?

  2. Thanks for saying what I am feeling. Not only do we own the Andy Griffith series, but also the Waltons. Last night, my daughter was enjoying I love Lucy. Thank you God for her heart. We can vote with the remote by tuning out of today’s “programming”.

  3. Look at the Maury, Jerry Springer, and Steve Wilkos shows. You have women coming on there testing 2, 3, 4, 5, or more men just to find out who their childrens’ fathers are; and they still can’t find them: who slept with whom, lie detector tests, and so forth. Many of the guests are not married and have children out of wedlock. Instead of a husband and wife with children its 5 or 6 different “baby’s daddies/baby’s mamas.”

    I’m so glad that I was born in the 50’s and grew up in the 60’s, when you had clean old-fashioned shows. (I’m a big Green Acres fan.) On I Love Lucy, did Lucy ever tell Ricky that she cheated on him, that little Ricky wasn’t his, and that she needed a paternity and a lie detector test as proof, and vice versa? Did Fred ever cheat on Ethel? Did Ricky ever have any other “baby’s mamas” besides Lucy?

    The stuff on Jerry Springer, Maury, and Steve Wilkos make Peyton Place look like Mother Goose.

    Sadly, they have never been taught what the Bible

    Sadly, they have never been taught to flee fornication and to keep the marriage bed undefiled.
