Let me show ya somethin’… offensive.
Wow. I had just posted about Hollywood continuing to lecture the rest of us on morality while shoving its immorality down our throats which has resulted in problem after problem in American culture. No sooner did that happen than did megastar Jim Carrey Tweet out his comment that the Catholic church isn’t open enough about human sexuality and somehow that’s a problem.
Go to Twitchy.com – a site that highlights notable Tweets of the day – and you’ll see my reply as well as those of several others to Carrey’s Tweet (note that I’ve now achieved the highest honor bestowed upon a Tweeter – to have his/her Tweet published on Twitchy.com).
To Carrey’s credit he sent some responses along the lines of “Hey, I’m just sayin’….” – he didn’t get all Alec Baldwin angry on us.
I really believe many of these celebrities believe they are in their own insular world and that all of their fans belong to that world. Hence, Carrey probably didn’t even realize so many Catholics/Christians were following him – presumably because, in my case, their aficionados of his work as a comedic actor.
It reminds me of the time Sarah Jessica Parker hosted SNL right after the 1994 Republican takeover of Congress election and did the whole monologue using “we lost” terminology – as if the entire audience believed in her political views.
They don’t get it; then again they are detached from reality.
This also underscores a key difference between the Left and Right. Whereas members of the Right are able to patronize the films or music of entertainers with whom they disagree politically, the Left savages anyone on the Right, seemingly. I mean I’d love to play a round of golf or catch a ball game with our President, whereas the Left can’t stand the sight of a George W. Bush or a Sarah Palin or a Glenn Beck or a Rush Limbaugh. Fox News liberal commentator Juan Williams recently cited the phenomenon of Left intolerance.
Anyway, back to my original point. Why does Hollywood continue to lecture us about open sexuality? How much more open can today’s culture be at this point? As I cited previously, what’s been the consequence of this culture that’s so openly sexual? RU-86, abortion, disease, single moms on welfare, higher crime, sexual crimes like date rape. On and on and on.
I’d rather they come out and admit that they were wrong and that they regret the moral decay that has occurred as a result of their prescribed orthodoxy.
Yet they keep lecturing us that the problem is we aren’t sexual enough… STILL!
It seems very consistent with overall liberal ideology – i.e., when something isn’t working, there prescription is not to stop doing it but to do more of it (e.g., education spending, Head Start, etc.). Yeah, big government isn’t the problem! It’s not enough government (despite $16 trillion National Debt).
Sheesh…. Anyhow, I’ll be here waiting whenever anyone from Hollywood is ready to come forward with an apology for their mistakes. (Insert long white beard.)
