Re: Prayers needed

I actually watch CSI...and for the most part enjoy it...but even I agree
that sometimes the gruesomeness of the show is way over the top. Much of
it is just gratuitous violence and truly not necessary for the
development or advancement of any plot line. I sometimes think the
entertainment industry at large has to see just how far they can push
the envelope, which has now gone from being business sized to...well,
what's bigger than a breadbox?

Hey, has anyone seen CSI? They routinely show dismembered people.
It's<br>been a favorite of my wife's because it's a crime show but one
time that I<br>actually watched it I was so appalled and made such a
fuss that my wife just<br>turned the channel. I will never understand
why somebody would want to<br>watch stuff like that.<br><br>David

you are both so right. Sometimes I'm appalled at what I<br>> myself
accept as "not so bad" or "normal" these days. I usually back
up<br>and<br>> go wait a minute, that's a horrible thing to show on TV,
or say on the<br>> radio, etc. Even the morning shows now are full of
things that were simply<br>> not tolerated when I was a child. I can
remember the first time I heard<br>the<br>> word 'damn' on TV and was
amazed. And yes, freedom of speech has turned<br>> into say anything you
want, no matter how vile, obscene (although those<br>> REALLY smart
people in DC still haven't clearly defined that word) or even<br>>
ludicrous. That's another thing that amazes me, the TV shows that
people<br>> watch not for the violent content, but for the sheer
stupidity of the<br>> content. Just don't get it. OK, I'll stop.<br>>
