Trumpeted across Big Entertainment and Big Media outlets last week has been a list of the First Family's TV shows. At the top of the list for the First Lady and her daughters is "Modern Family."
Little wonder, then, that America has become a land of moral quagmire. I have never watched an episode, so I am way behind the times. I am a pop culture Neanderthal (with apologies to the Geico caveman). Nevertheless, I am not completely ignorant of the show's content; after all, it is crammed down the throats of non-viewers via plenty of other venues such as promotions, talk shows, articles, and the like. It does not take a discerning viewer - like me - long to put two and two together and come up with the thrust of the program. And the program's thrust is to further rupture the overall moral climate of the nation and world. The Wikipedia article about the program cites this controversy:
Modern Family drew criticism from the LGBT community for its portrayal of Cameron and Mitchell as not being physically affectionate with each other. The criticism spawned a Facebook campaign to demand Mitchell and Cameron be allowed to kiss. In response to the controversy, producers released a statement that a season two episode would address Mitchell's discomfort with public displays of affection. Executive producer Levitan has said that it was unfortunate that the issue had arisen, since the show's writers had always planned on such a scene "as part of the natural development of the show." The episode "The Kiss" eventually aired with the kiss scene in the background which drew praise from multiple critics.
The debauchery of the sexual anarchy revolution marches on, and this is the "favorite TV show" that informs and shapes the Obama children in their formative years.
How would Big Entertainment and Big Media have responded if the First Family indicated that their favorite program was the "Adventures in Odyssey" series produced by Focus on the Family? Never mind. Rhetorical question. The answer is all too obvious.
Yes, Mr. Obama will take to the campaign trail once again and tout his Christian faith. Sadly, there is nothing in the overt actions of either him or his family that indicates that they plan on living out such a faith in their private or public lives. Figs don't grow on thorn bushes.
First Family values.
