Necessary Intolerance

Before I begin this tirade you have to watch the video to fully appreciate everything I am about to say.

When I first saw this video my jaw almost hit the floor. I was disgusted, appalled and saddened by the fact that anyone would find this behavior appropriate for a child, and worse yet, that they would find it funny enough to post on the Internet.

Kids do not need to watch any and everything that comes on TV. With all the sexual predators and perverts that are teeming in our neighborhoods, is it really a good idea to have a little girl posted on the web for the world to see how well she can "ride it"? Come on! Be serious!

It's really sad that the world we live in has become so desensitized to any and everything that goes on anymore, and it's a shame that the people who actually stand up and speak out about these things are called "intolerant" and "judgmental". 

Well sometimes intolerance is needed. It seems that the more we "tolerate" the worse things get.

We tolerated them taking God out of the schools. Now the kids are killing each other at staggering rates, drop outs have increased exponentially and  we don't even blink at teen pregnancy anymore.

We have allowed society to minimalize the sanctity of marriage and now divorce rates at an all time high, gay marriage has made a mockery of God's plan for the union between men and women, and we wonder why young men have no concept of what the word "family" really means or what it takes to maintain one.

Video games show people getting their heads chopped off with demonic figures plastered all over the place, while stealing cars is rewarded with money, women and prestige. They even have a game on the market overseas that allows people to simulate rapping young girls. Then we wonder why the same kids have no problem robbing, raping and killing people in real life.

It's way past time for some intolerance. Everything is not ok and saying so doesn't mean you're being judgmental; it just means that you're standing up for what's right.

Things are on a downward spiral; you only need to turn on the news to see that for yourself. If people, the church especially, doesn't speak out then what hope do we have?

We have to do better. Education is key...when we know better we do better. If you know better then reach out and teach somebody else. Be the change you want to see.

Be blessed and stay prayerful.
