Pagan Wife Swap

A recent episode of Wife Swap involved a Pagan family. If you've watched previously, Pagans have been treated as quite goofy on this show. Supposedly this is better, but I have not had the chance to watch it yet.

The most recent one was pretty tame compared to the others.  The wives focused more on the children than the religous aspects and it helped the non pagan mom understand that there was no evil in it.

Thanks for the link. I wanted to watch that Thursday but forgot about it. I'm glad they didn't portray Pagans in a bad way. Though I don't believe that mom learned anything. At the end she was looking at the altar left for her and kind of upturned her nose. I doubt it will stay there. Also at the end where they are talking about if they've followed through, it says the man hasn't cooked dinner for his wife. I doubt he'll change much either. Though it did say he stopped screaming at his child.

I was never into wife swap. I think I only watched one or two episodes when it first aired.

I liked that this family of Pagans was not portrayed as goofy. I agree that she didn't really learn much in terms of tolerance, though I did appreciate that she apologized to the children.

Yes the apology was a good thing for her to do. I also liked their idea of placing a name of someone attacking them in sand and freezing it. That one went in my memory bank of ideas. :)

I'm watching this now.  OMG the way the tap-Dad treats his family, especially his son... I almost started crying.  :-(

 I'm afraid i only watched until the first commercial. I honestly forgot why i couldn't stand the show and now i remember. all of the misconceptions, judgements, and abusive families drives me nuts. with all of the drama that insues, i get too worked up over a show.

Just ... W O W.

A GROWN MAN that can't dress or feed himself?! Seriously?! Absolutely laughable. I can't even imagine tolerating nonsense like that.
