Is anything in life really not about sex?

Most pageant mothers see nothing wrong with exploiting their daughters for personal gratification, and then acts shocked when a teenage boy has in hand a copy of Hustler Magazine featuring their daughter as this month's centerfold. Let's face the facts, God made his children attractive in order to attract a mate, have a family and a lifelong companion.

Advertisers will always use what sells products, and we are just as guilty as them for supporting them. It is up to us to stop it, and you can do it by boycotting products that use sex to sell their products, but we won't. It's easier to complain than act.

I'm not one to complain and not act. I got rid of my satellite system and went to Netflix so I could control what is on my television. I refuse to support companies that shove homosexuality in my face, and programs centered around sexual perversion and promiscuity. We have only ourselves to blame. We allowed it, and we can stop it. If they see their support dwindling, they will look for other ways to push their products. Think about it.
