Since this has become such a big fuss in the public’s eye, I thought it was worth mentioning…

It seems that the question Perez (an assumed openly homosexual man) gave to Miss California was not very complicated. It seems as if the obvious answer to the question about what Miss California thought about legalizing Gay Marriages would be simple. She should have given a “people-pleaser” answer if she really wanted that crown. But oh, God forbid she actually has a different opinion than what society has been trying to push upon us lately (actually for a while now)…

Promoting Alcoholism and Sexual Promiscuity? May 11, 2009

I have been thinking a lot about this lately. Especially with Artur (our Pastor)  breifly mentioning this just this Sunday…I realized that I should write a blog about it.

We see promotion of Alcoholism and Sex everywhere, seriously, it is absolutely ridiculous. What I want to do is to give or show an example of this. My main focus here is music, specifically these two songs “Blame It” – Jamie Foxx and “Just Dance” – Lady Gaga because they have become really popular. These types of songs are fun and catchy and they get stuck in our heads. We end up singing along with them in the car on the radio and we spend the rest of the day humming and singing it.

Some of the images in their videos are dirty and I apologie for that, if you don’t want to watch it, that’s fine. But I just want to present the lyrics and the videos here just so you see what we are actually listening to and watching and the messages that we recieve and accept and tolerate unconsciously…

Here is “Blame It” by Jamie Foxx

They say that money can’t buy happiness, but I think that is a very flase statement! Yes, it is true that money can’t buy true friendship, money can’t buy love, and money can’t (necessarily) buy happiness (because I believe happiness is not on sale at Kmart or anything like that, meaning it is not a substance to be grasped but rather a felt emotion typically manifesting itself in a smile or a laugh)….but it sure can pay for things that make you happy! Right?
