Q. What is the meaning of hypocrisy?
A. The pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.
FACT: You cannot walk around trashing Miley Cyrus for doing a lap dance with an old queen like Adam Shankman and consider the new Miss USA marketing campaign a good idea.
FACT: You cannot watch Jersey Shore and think it is hilarious, anxiously waiting Season Two, then judge Miley Cyrus for being too young to be sexy.
FACT: You cannot be a self-righteous Tea Bagger (Sarah Palin) with a daughter that just so happens to be a teenage mother out of wedlock.
FACT: You cannot be a teenage mother out of wedlock (Bristol Palin) and then become the poster child for abstinence.
FACT: You cannot be an anti-gay, Christian zealot (George Rekers) and take young hustler boys on vacations abroad.
It is the hypocrisy of the media, politicians, television and advertising executives, and magazine editors that have blurred the lines between what is appropriate and what is unacceptable. There is no turning back our societal clock when Father Knows Best and Emily Post were the watermark of good behavior. We glorify skanks and out of control athletes, our heroes are no longer all that super, hence this is what we have to contend with. It is kind of like that scene in the film The Ten Commandments when Moses comes down from the mountain with the tablets, only to find the people have run amok, wilding with orgies and praying to a golden calf statues (a.k.a. bling). Pack your bags kiddies…we are sure to be in the desert for 40 years.
