Miley is allowed to do her thing at the VMA's, which really, I have no words for, and that is ok. No repercussions for being plain nasty on a publicly broadcasted stage. Her own father was quoted as saying, "I'm proud of you because you knew you had to reinvent yourself, coming out of this mammoth monster known as Hannah Montana." Okkkkk. Let go and let God I guess. In case you haven't gotten to see Miley breaking free and reinventing herself, here you go....6 whole minutes of Miley figuring out who she is. .
Little one was quite interested in why Mr. Robertson was banned from his own show for sharing his own opinions. As we talked I finally had to say....."this is dangerous territory. When a people, a religious group, a gender group, an age group, is shushed....we are in dangerous territory." And then we went THERE....we talked about Hitler, Nazi Germany, and the idea that the Jews were an impure race and "needed" to be "exterminated" so that the Aryan race...the light skinned, blued eyed, humans who were believed to be the "superior" race would be the dominate species on the earth. Hitler believed with all of his heart he was doing good for the world. He was purifying the earth. What a F-ing tragedy. A lie. An evil deception.
Where does the line get drawn? Who gets to determine who should be allowed to speak their beliefs and who shouldn't? We can teach about so many things in public schools, including Islam and Buddhism.....but not Christianity. How come? We can't even use the word Christmas anymore....it now has to be "Happy Holidays." No more Easter break...its "spring break."
I am not a fan of organized religion. I don't go to church because there is so much there that I don't agree with anymore.....but my faith in, my relationship with, *Jesus Christ* sustains me. My faith, my dirty little secret.
