I can’t stand it.
I just can’t stand it.
I don’t know why I care.
Pardon my language, but in the interest of venting I’m just doing to say it:
I can’t take the fire hose worth of bullsh*t coming from those people or those places.
If you follow my blog, you might have noticed that earlier today (October 5th, 2016) I wrote a post about how it’s not just sex that can be considered pornographic, but things like violence too. That post was inspired by a post on The Culture Watch.
I deleted that post because I realized that my blog was becoming a place of anger: becoming a, to quote the description of the No Man’s Sky subreddit, “hate filled waste hole.”
You’re probably thinking: Isn’t this post rooted in anger, too? It is. But this will be the last post of its kind.
There is so much stupidity in certain corners of the world, and I’ve realized there is only so much I can do about it. So, I’m going to do the best thing possible:
I’m not going to let it effect me.
For what it’s worth: Examples of the stupidity I’m talking about:
“Christianity, a form of ethical monotheism, is superior to all…non-Christian or anti-Christian worldviews…” (What’s Your Worldview?)
“…most feature films often require stereotypes, even negative ones, to tell a good story…they appeal only to narrow-minded bigots with an ax to grind, whose mental faculties and hearts have been poisoned by their sinful misanthropic prejudice.” (Movieguide’s review of There Will Be Blood.)
“…Adolph Hitler and his National Socialist demagogues… The pro-abortion, pro-gun control leftists in Hollywood are the rightful heirs of these socialist monsters.” (Movieguide’s review of Runaway Jury.)
“Naturally, [Roger Ebert] was also obviously attracted to the steamy sex scenes in MONSTER’S BALL. He also apparently didn’t mind ogling the naked breasts of Halle Berry, who plays Leticia (he got to see similar sightings of a voluptuous nude black woman in BELOVED, it should be noted)…” (Words that have been changed in Movieguide’s review of Monster’s Ball.)
“…THE COUNSELOR has no heart, no moral courage, not much intelligence or wit, and no honor. Also, there is no Wizard of Oz to lend it any of those things. Except, perhaps, for the obsequious, phony pseudo-intellectual elitists running the news media and America’s critic organizations, who like to insert redeeming qualities and artistic value when there are none.” (Movieguide’s review of The Counselor.)
“Bill Murray sounds like every loony leftist National Socialist politician. His sycophants do a perfect job of creating an aura of National Socialism, or liberal fascism with a happy face. He may remind many viewers of another politician currently running for president.” (Movieguide’s review of City of Ember.)
“Regrettably, a new wave of Christian media courses sends vulnerable children to movies with corrosive, corrupting immorality and philosophy so that the children can talk to their peers about them.” (The Key to Real Media Wisdom.)
Watching 6- and 7-year-old children walk out of the press screening for the new “Harry Potter” movie (as well as the many reviewers and others with witchcraft symbols on their clothes and S&M dresses) is always an opportunity to reflect on the malignant corruption of our culture. Aside from the fact that these children are exposed to ugly creatures, fantastic violence and worthless incantations, this movie has some dialogue that sounds like it comes out of Stuart Smalley’s Daily Affirmations on “Saturday Night Live.”
Namely, when professor Dumbledore sits Harry down and tells him, “You are not a bad person. Every person has light and darkness. You have a choice.”
Imagine saying this to Cho Seung-Hui after he had his killing spree at Virginia Tech this spring. Or Adolf Hitler.
Contrary to Dumbledore’s idiotic aphorisms, there are bad people.
…“you are really a good person” has caused a whole generation to be spoiled beyond comprehension.
