I watched the recent finale of "American Idol," and I am happy about the two finalists Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. Both are winners in my eyes, for their music and wholesome personalities.
Nevertheless, I was shockingly abused by much of the emotionally unhealthy music presented during the show, and by all the immodesty and erotic dancing. I hope Americans realize that immodesty is visual profanity.
"American Idol" blocks out verbal profanity. Sure wish it'd have the sense to block out the visual profanity, erotic dancing and unhealthy music.
Better yet, I wish it forbid them in the first place.
"American Idol" is as out of control in its moral values as Congress is in its deficit spending!
