And it’s your fault American atheists. You’re a relatively powerless minority group that can’t so much as frown in the vicinity of a theist without being accused of personally plotting the assassination of every theist on the planet, but thanks to you there are millions of religious kids running around the country looking not to the cross but to Google for the latest shot of some starlet’s crotch when they ain’t entertaining thoughts of being a thug.
For example, look at the enormous growth in the last half century of genuine admiration of self-destructive lifestyles and behaviour. You can see it clearly by looking at the difference between traditional culture heroes and modern ones.
The Man Called Cash, for example, had his problems with drugs, but he wasn’t making records that called June a bitch and threatening to whack her around. He was divorced, but he wasn’t a deadbeat dad. And he didn’t celebrate his drug problems; he overcame them.
How times change! Entertainment media shamelessly cash in on today’s celebration of loser lifestyles in rap music.
Historically, this is highly unusual. There is nothing “natural” about exalting self-destructive, criminal lifestyles. It was more natural for my peers to admire Neil Armstrong and Terry Fox than for today’s teens to admire rappers and drunken celebs exposing their posteriors.
How did it come about? One direct cause is atheistic materialism as the defacto public religion.
How could you do this to those poor innocent little kids? You ought to be ashamed of yourselves for victimizing children of all things. Ashamed, I tell you!
