Yep, pop culture has been striking out bigtime in my book lately…
I usually just ignore the junk in the media. It’s hard to believe I actually used to work for a radio station owned by a company which was dedicated to getting people to voice their outrage against bad things that happen in the media…call your senators, etc. Not saying they are bad people, just saying that’s not how I typically respond.
You’ve probably seen the way culture has been striking out lately:
1. Adam Lambert’s ridiculous performance at the American Music Awards which included stuff like this:’
2. And cool tweet from Matthew West I read this morning:
I’m thankful for Christian radio. I turned on pop radio and heard Britney’s new song, “3.” The lyric? “Living in sin is the new thing..”
Seriously? I have a 3 yr who can pick up the lyrics of any song, and thanks for Christian radio in our car, she won’t be singing that song!!
Yep, the pop princess is at it again. Not that shocking, but it leads me to my next point:
I’m thankful for Christian radio. Not just as a job, but as a positive, Christian media outlet. No, it’s not perfect or always done very well, but it’s nice to have, and I do appreciate being a part of it.
