I am a huge fan of So You Think You Can Dance, and since Glee has been on right after it I've been watching it. There are things I definitely love about Glee...
First, I was a choir nerd, so on some levels I can relate with it. Granted, we didn't magically know all the words and steps to perform it perfectly at every rehearsal, we did have to practice once in a while. But I will give them that, it might get kind of boring to watch them sucking it up in a million practices.
I do enjoy the singing and the music for the most part. Some of it is way to "popish" and doctored up to sound good. But it's fun. And it's entertaining.
There have been a few good moments on the show.
But after last night, I am completely annoyed. That show is spouting ideals that I don't agree with at every turn.
Because who is it in this show of loose morals and complete immorality that is painted as the most intolerant "bad guy?"
Not the teacher who has allowed himself to have feelings for another teacher even though he's married. (even if his wife is psycho she's still his wife)
Not his wife who is pretending to be pregnant and planning on somehow snagging the baby of her husband's student and passing it off as their own.
Not the ex-cheerleader who is now pregnant and lying to her boyfriend who is not really the father.
Not the real father who is a bully and a punk with this endearing soft side that is a load of foo-foo.
And it's not the gay boy who is in love with the fake daddy but who is also portrayed as the most put upon but put together person on the show.
Nope, it's pregnant ex-cheerleaders daddy. The one who raised his daughter to be chaste. (I know, he's so not with the times, right?) The one who listens to Glenn Beck. The one who is suddenly the worst villain on the show, simply because he's disappointed in his daughter. Granted, I wouldn't kick my kid out of the house, and I would give them love and support. But heck ya, I would be disappointed! And I'd be mad!
But it wouldn't be because I listen to Glenn Beck.
Because here's what I think. I can love everyone, regardless of race, religion, sex, etc. I can be tolerant. I can appreciate the struggles that people with disabilities go through. I can strive to be a loving, kind and patient person.
But that doesn't mean that I can't believe in right and wrong, black and white. That doesn't mean I can't believe in God. That doesn't mean that I won't teach my children to choose the right. I have four boys. And they will be taught to not have any sexual relations before marriage. And that marriage is only supposed to be between a man and a woman. They will be taught to have an appreciation and love for all life, including babies that may be a surprise.
I will stand by my morals. I will stand by my country and my leaders, as long as they are on my side. I will not be swayed by the liberal media and those that consider themselves tolerant and politically correct. Because I know what I stand for.
And I stand for the right.
And no show, no politician, no peer pressure in the world is going to change my mind.
Who's on the Lord's side? Who?
Caution! Sharp curve ahead...
