AMEN to that Use…of course the girl was being a little brat…sometimes kids do that. If my child (who is 17 now) were to mouth off and be a brat and I got violent with him….CPS would come running in and take him off God knows where. Luckily I got in enough pops to the backside when he was younger to have already instilled in him some responsibility and good sense and he doesn’t do that sort of thing. In a situation between someone whose brain isn’t done growing yet and a full adult…responsibility is always with the grown adult. Period…

The thing is that this child is a recent foster child. My parents are foster parents (and about to give it up over the following) ..
These kids come from less than attentive parental stock to begin with so they’re already often brats. The foster parents get them and you would not BELIEVE the insane rules there. They are not allowed to use corporal punishment whatsoever. The foster system thinks you can talk it all out and everything will be ok…with all kids. You can’t humiliate them, you have to be careful about taking away privilages and allowance too. You have to watch what you say to them. In short you can do nothing that a good parent would do except spoil them which the state does allow and encourage as if it is going to teach children to be decent human beings. Sometimes we pop our children on their behinds because that momentary sting to teach them not to do the thing can save them a bucketload of pain and anguish later.
The foster parent’s hands are tied or they just take the kids away and put them in another home that has to follow those rules. The foster system dooms these children by not allowing them to be raised to be decent human beings. It is the rare child (and usually one that lost their parents in some horrible accident who was being raised decently prior) who has it in them to teach themselves these lessons. The kids life a life of entitlement and get told all about their rights but not held to their responsibilities.

YES! And another person that BELONGS educating children. BRAVO!!!! I bet he was severely humiliated that his childish tantrum didn’t get him anywhere. Again BRAVO!!!

Aya,,,I agree totally….oh you need to be wheeled out like a baby in a stroller….very well, we can do that…out the door she goes into the hallway where she has no audience. One of the first things I learned as the parent of a toddler….when they try to tantrum take away their attentive audience….it’s alot less fun when you don’t have anyone to impress. Of course she’d have jumped up as soon as he tried to make good on that. That’s where if he was fast he could have one arm then the other and slap those cuffs on her…if she refuses to walk they can always do like they do prisoners in jail who refuse to walk…cuff the legs to prevent kicking and one adult in front, one adult in back and carry her like a suitcase out the door as orderly as possible. It would be REALLY humiliating for her.
He lost control of the situation- she provoked him into violence and provoked him to lose his cool…she ultimately wins. It shouldn’t have gone down that way.

BRAVO Max, exactly. I’ve had my “experiences” with LEO’s. Because I don’t look like I am well off (I’m not) because I have a disfigurement (due to a disabling condition) a portion of them like to treat me as if I am unintelligent and morally a lowlife and everything I say is a lie. They have run roughshod over me, threatened to arrest me, take my children from me, kill my service dog, publicly humiliated me in front of 100′s of people. Why? I had the sheer audacity to be disabled and use a service dog. When I showed them the law that gave me the rights I was utilizing, and the proof the dog was really a service dog, they told me that they didnt care about MY laws. This was 20 years ago and it wasn’t the last time either. The behavior of cops has steadily degraded. I tried to teach my kids to respect cops….the cops themselves proved me to be a liar in front of my kids with their predatory and out of control behavior.
All cops are not bigoted….a portion of them are, not all cops are useless pieces of crap in love with their own power, but a portion of them are. The problem is not that cops are bigoted…the problem is an ever increasing portion of cops don’t have respect for those they serve yet they DEMAND respect from everyone else. I’m sorry but generally as a group they’ve lost my support. There are some good ones where I live and they have my highest respect because they earn it from everyone they meet by their individual behavior.

I agree….send that child home so I can take them out behind the woodshed my own self…we’ll have a little talk, the child and I, that the child won’t soon forget…

I agree totally dalepres

I’m floored. I read most of these comments of people saying they were Christian and defending watching the smut. Ok fine..but at least be honest about it to yourself and to your Lord. When you get to judgement I want to be there when you offer up to the Lord that it was ok because it was worse in the books or it was ok because the story writers were being true to the book, or it was ok because it was the best thing out there to watch, or it was ok because it is really about the struggle between good and evil, or it was ok because (insert YOUR excuse for why it is ok). I’d like to see how well that works for you. He did say to be careful of what you input into your brain, just be up front with yourself and Him about the fact that you choose to disregard His instructions because you know better or you can handle it or whatever. You might at least get brownie points for honesty.
I’m guilty too of not being as careful as I probably should be at all times, but at least I am honest about it to myself and to my God.
You better be walking the line pretty tight if you're going to criticize people for watching this show, enough to where you think God would take exception in the end.
Do you ever wonder where people get the idea that religion was invented to control people?

Now how does it matter to distinguish where this came from? I’d like to know. It changes nothing. It’s still something that is bad to be putting into your brain. And your assessment of what it is all meant to show, it’s an opinion….or more accurately an excuse. Keep watching it if you insist but at least be honest with yourself.
May 21, 2015 at 5:59am
“I will keep my beliefs to myself, and not force feed you mine.”
I think that is what you just did. Hey, I’ll pray for you though. You have a good one…
 May 21, 2015 at 5:48am
And I am sure you are supremely glad at this point…I’m with you on that…
May 21, 2015 at 5:47am
Kind of like reading Penthouse for the articles…gotchya….
May 21, 2015 at 5:39am
A Catholic that thinks for themselves???? I didn’t think such a creature existed….save maybe riding a unicorn. Can I shake your hand? Seriously! You give me alot of hope for Catholics- just being honest here. A christian’s call and duty is to be accountable and listen to God, not to some priest that may or may not be accurate. A priest is human and human’s are inherrently flawed and sinful. Yes listen to what they have to say then weigh and decide it against what God has said. Don’t depend on them to tell you what the Bible says…go and read it for yourself (and that goes for every Christian religion).
May 21, 2015 at 5:34am
Or Lord, at least inspire your people to do activities that are better for them and their christianity in the place of watching crap like this..
 May 21, 2015 at 5:29am
Well your second paragraph says it all about why you don’t like what he has to say…
“I do watch GoT – very few series have the sheer number of plots, story lines, and level of character development. Everything in our culture is so superficial; that’s why GoT is the phenomenon it is. People crave depth – and will seek it wherever they can get it.”
Just because it the best of what is available..doesn’t make it a good idea or a really Christian thing to be doing, don’t you think? But of course you’ll defend it, Satan has drawn you in and now you’re trapped by what you think is a good and pleasurable thing. Drug addicts feel the same way and defend their activities similarly…I get it but I’m not going there…

I’d proffer that by the sheer fact it is popular, it is also suspect. Satan tries to minimize and strike down anything that is good and rightous and works to make popular anything that works in his favor…..anything that is ragingly popular with the masses is automatically suspect in my book and worthy of more careful consideration before also engaging. In this world going increasingly evil, evil is what becomes desired, popular and easily flourishes….just making an observation.

I agree totally mewani….in fact my family doesn’t much watch TV at all anymore. It is there and I have the lowest tier cable service (which I should probably just cancel…we’re only using it once every 6 months anyway). I just don’t find much in this day and age worth watching. I didn’t set out for the family not to watch TV, we as individuals each just kind of drifted away in disgust as less and less was anything we wanted to watch (including my teens) and as more and more other options became available. If this is the best of what is on TV I am glad of what our relationship with the TV has become. We play games, we work on whatever work we have to accomplish, we engage in our hobbies, we pick what we want to see from Netflix, we listen to talk radio, we have plenty of DVD’s. We’re not really missing the cable TV much at all…poor neglected thing. Since all of TV anymore is pretty much universally crappy….saying that this show is the best thing out there on TV going doesn’t say a whole lot…..I won’t sledgehammer the TV because it IS hooked to the DVD player which plays decent stuff we WANT to watch on occasion. One of these days I will get around to cancelling the cable TV entirely though.

Yep, that is pretty obvious….

That’s for sure…Jade Helm crap is going off everywhere and they don’t breathe a sound about it but boy rush this to press….bleh….why do I still bother?
