I really love Six Feet Under, it was one of my favorite shows. I was just coming out of the fog of JW thinking when I first started watching it, and the guys-kissing-guys thing wasn't something I was used to and it made me a little uncomfortable at first. I had to ask myself why would something like that make a person uncomfortable, and I realized I was still thinking like a judgmental JW. That really opened my eyes and made me question my attitude toward homosexuals and lots of other things, and I could see I still needed to change some things. So, for me, that show was more like art, really made me think, like art should.
This isn't the first time I've heard religious Christians enraged about stuff like Sex and the City, etc. Just last week a lady at work was talking about it and said "that stuff just doesn't need to be on the TV". Well, then turn it off. But, I really think she was saying it doesn't need to be on ANYBODY's TV. That's what they really want - censorship for all in the name of doing what's best for the children. As if all the social problems in the world today will all magically solve themselves if we Christianed up television and movies. I don't know, maybe more people would "come to Jesus" if they never saw Sex and the City?
Hey, if Christians want "cleaner" movies and tv, and there's a real demand for it, they should get it. But give the rest of us choices, you know?
