I don’t know if anyone else has made this observation but have you ever encountered people (even just on these threads) who act like just because something is not for kids it automatically means it’s bad for everybody?
It’s as if their entire set of entertainment preferences are governed by the simple, naive minds of toddlers. If you ask me, children-oriented TV shows (like those on Nick Jr. or Playhouse Disney) maybe good for kids but don’t you dare tell me, a grown young man, to watch them. They insult my intelligence and their excess fluff and sappiness can make me writhe when I’m in a bad mood.
Look I am all and everything for keeping rated material away from their eyes but that’s only because they’re not mature to understand the hard stuff. When I was a kid, the whole “Jesus-Died-4-Me” message didn’t hit me when I saw movie adaptions of his Passion and Death. I just saw raw pain and violence. I didn’t like it. It was only when I matured and studied in my faith that I understood and now instead of revulsion, I actually get major guilt trips when I visually see what our Lord went through.
If you ask me, these people give children too much credit.
