approved for all audiences
My husband and I went out last night for our anniversary. We went to Red Robin for dinner (Macaroni Grill had a 2-hour wait) and then we went to a movie. Dwight wanted to see "Taken" because he had heard people say it was good, so that was the movie we went to see. The movie was pretty good, but what bothered me were the previews. Supposedly these previews are "approved for all audiences", but it really bothers me how someone could think that showing teenagers making out and blatently talking about and pursuing losing their purity is suitable for all audiences! Not only that but there were scenes of girls kissing girls and men kissing men! I turned to my husband and I said, "This is too much! I feel like I'm in Sodom and Gomorrha!" It's a been a long time since we've been to the movie theater. We usually just rent what we want to see on DVD. After last night, I don't think I'll ever want to go to the movie theater again. I wonder how many parents let their teenagers go to the movies alone each week. I wonder how many parents know what's being displayed on the big screen before their children's eyes. I wonder if we're all just too calloused to this wickedness that it doesn't even bother us any more. I wonder why the Lord hasn't come back yet! I've heard people say that Jesus hasn't come back yet because the world isn't as evil as it was when the Flood happened or when Sodom and Gomorrha were destroyed. If the world isn't that evil again yet - I dread to see it when it is!
