Where are the clean comedians? On network TV, it was possible to see Milton Berle, Jackie Gleason, Sid Ceaser, Red Skelton, Bill Cosby, Jonathan Winters and others. No profanity, no sex jokes. The whole family could sit down and have a laugh in good conscience. Not anymore.
George Carlin decided to say all those dirty words you once couldn’t say on television. His material includes lots of sexual subjects, death can be fun and/or profitable, and violence is entertaining. Certain four letter words are used so often that some might think it’s OK to say them. It’s not.
Louis Black has said that he doesn’t believe there is any such thing as bad language. He also doesn’t understand why the use of profanity would upset Christians.
Whoopi Goldberg decided to play amateur theologian and explain to listeners of her “comedy” why the claim made in Leviticus in the Bible about homosexual acts is well, not right.
Chris Rock. Almost 'nuff said, but if you’ve never heard him, it’s mostly about sex. Very graphic.
Robin Williams and other “comedians” decided to pay a visit to New York Governor George Pataki not long ago. Why? To get a pardon for a comedian who was arrested and convicted on obscenity charges in the mid-1960s. His name was Lenny Bruce.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, it’s time to take note that crude, graphic and obscene propaganda masquerading as comedy is going on in this country. Female comedians are getting involved also, with equally crude and graphic sex jokes. One even made fun of a rape of a long dead relative.
Complain, politely and out of concern. All of these people are our neighbors, and we need to go to them and say, “Neighbor, why are you saying this? Why have you made a career out of this?” They can criticize the President and government all they want, but to triviliaze people’s lives, to glorify fornication and profanity and make it seem normal, those who live in proper fear of God need to stand up and say, “You’ve gone too far.” There is such a thing as right and wrong and this is wrong.
Love your neighbor as yourself,
