Don't Be a Daytime Television Man Whore

So I'm off work today. I had some vacation days to kill so here I am. I spent most of the day buying and selling online but I kept the tv on in the background. One of those daytime talk shows came on and I didn't change it. It had just started and they were talking about some guy who created 4 babies with 4 different women in the same year. I don't think my reaction was typical because as soon as they said this I felt an overwhelming feeling of sorrow. It hit me so suddenly and so hard that I was a bit surprised. I muted the tv and choked back the tears. I felt so terrible for those poor children. Here their moms were acting like two bit sluts with this man whore and their kids were the ones who would pay the price. These kids will all grow up with out dads because their so called parents had the self discipline of dogs in heat. This isn't entertainment this is a tragedy. That show should have ended like another popular daytime television show. In the words of Bob Barker "Don't forget to get your dogs spayed and neutered."

Amen! It is sad. I usually watch Regis & Kelly and Ellen. Those shows are happy.

Those types of shows should be banned. I don't understand how people watch those day after day. Unfortunately, there are many people out there acting the same way. They have no idea what love is, especially God's love. It is very sad.

What makes me sad is the thought that people are our there watching this because it makes their lives seem BETTER. It makes me angry that there are so many uncherished children in the world because people don't think.

In the town where I grew up, it was considered a badge of honor to be a pregnant teen. It meant you were fertile enough to have children, which meant you could get more welfare money when they were young, and more family to put to work when they were older. I don't know how to fix it, but I sure do pray for guidance on how I can help.
