So last night I did something I love to do. I watched an award show. I just love award shows. I love looking at people and clothes and seeing people win and lose. The show this night was the VMA’s on Mtv.
Britney spears opened the show and was sorta funny and then out came the host. Russel Brand. I watching him and I turn to my wife and say “who the heck is he”. Well turns out that was a reaction many had.
Russel proceded to go into a rant on politics and tear up Bush in a very inappropriate way. He preached that promiscuity and un married sex are not only ok but if your are not doing it you are a moron. He took jabs at the jonas brothers for wearing promise rings and made horrible comments about it. He went into disgraceful talk about madonna and taylor swift as well.
I am not a person who is by any means not aware people are like this and Mtv is known for this crap, but what the heck. This guy was way overboard. I pushed his own disgusting agenda and I was offended. There are songs today like “I kissed a girl” by katy perry which are huge. Some churches are preaching against it and her and even saying that she will be going to hell. I don’t look at it that way. Katy was signed on a Christian label by jennifer knapp and her CD was a flop. Then she went secular and capitolized on this new persona. It makes me sad that she was not embraced by the christian community, that she has changed her image and now is spreading the word that it is perfectly ok to be Bi. It isn’t, but it is also not ok to bash people like that. Sin is sin, but we are to still love those people. That was my rabbit trail rant…back to the VMA’s
So watching this I was really sad because of how important it is for people to be “cool” and “sexy”. People have really lost thier integrity and our culture is teaching the youth of today that it is “ok” to be like that.
We all know that this is out there. Is the church given a better alternative with our hypicrites and addicts as well? It is time the church started accepting people and praying for healing instead of condeming. With that said I will also go after Mtv. What happened to the creativity, to the music. It is now just a channel filled with reality shows designed to entice the horney youth population. It is working. That makes me sad.
Nobody is perfect. but I think Mtv could have made a better choice for thier host. Look at the bio for the guy they chose.:
He is a former heroin addict, sex addict, alcoholic and has had numerous run-ins with the police, having been arrested 11 times for public indecency. During the time of his addiction, he was known for his debauchery, a notable example being his ejection from The Gilded Balloon, in Edinburgh. He has abstained from drug use since 2003 and is now a patron of the addiction charity Focus 12. His abandonment of drugs and alcohol was instigated by his agent John Noel. He did so with the help of the Hare Krishnas, to whom he feels “indebted”. He has been fired many times for indecency and for reading porn over the radio.
I am ok with free speach but it seems to me MTv isnt. They are sure pushing thier agenda with thier choices last night.
Again..to the church..stop attacking people like Katy perry. My guess is it’s people like that who convinced her to leave the church originally.
Time to be real church…time to hit things on the head…time to walk in truth justice and mercy…
Time to realize what a sad state our culture is in and get on our knees and pray hard.
