How conservative are you?

I went on a roadtrip last week & spent many an hour on the road in areas where about all my radio would pick up was conservative Christian talk shows..... so I gave 'em a listen.

One whole hour was devoted to why/how women should submit to men --- I have to admit, I threw up in my mouth a little on that one.

But the one that really got me going was a movie review of Ice Age. They were saying it wasn't "kid" or "family" friendly because, mainly, it promoted gender-bending... referring to the baby dinosaurs calling Sid mommy.

Seriously, they spent a half hour at least just discussing this one thing about the movie. I nearly ran off the road laughing. That show was completely off my 'conservative spectrum'.

So, I was just curious.... does anyone agree with them? Anon replies are fine... I just want to know if anyone else freaked out about Sid being a "mom". lol

  • Wow. I'm very liberal on a lot of things but conservative on some others.

    Although I think there is a big difference between true conservatives and people who are just lunatics with too much time on their hands, the radio show host you caught sounds like the latter.

  • This bothers me when ADULTS make these kind of ridiculous comments about cartoons. OMG, Kids brains dont think like that. There is not way a child in the movie theater would mention that.

  • EXACTLY lilmsnay. When adults with supposedly "superior morals" are suggesting that we slap "ADULTS ONLY" labels on Sesame Street because they've decided that Bert and Ernie must be gay together, then who really has their mind in the gutter? Because I guarantee you kids aren't thinking about that stuff, they're just enjoying their shows.

  • I think I land on the liberal end of the spectrum, in spite of the fact that I'm a Christian, and I just about fell out of my chair laughing at this. What on earth is the matter with society when people start thinking that EVERYTHING is a reference to sexuality?

    Oh, wait, I just remembered what's wrong. Homophobia. Wackos, I say.

  • I am definitely not conservative, it baffles my mind the stupid things people come up with.

  • I'm way liberal. I think I would rather hum a tune in my head then listen to conservative radio of any kind. The stuff they worry about is just silly. That joke about babies calling a male "Mommy" has been going on for generations. It's usually baby birds or ducks or something hatching and implanting on the first adult they see which always ends up being a guy. The kids think it's funny that they call he guy "Mommy" when it is so obvious the person is not a girl.
    I think the ultra conservative Christians need to get their minds out of the gutter. They are the only ones thinking this stuff.
