Discovery Channel's "Naked and Afraid"

I used to watch Discovery Channel all the time, and I thought it was very educational. My nephew preferred watching it over cartoons when he was 7 years old! He learned a lot and taught me a lot. I was banned to the bedroom TV when I wanted to watch it when football was on.

But today, I don't watch that channel. One show in particular that is offensive is Naked and Afraid.

This show has two people stripped of any clothing dropped into some wilderness and they have to survive without clothing, food, or other gear for days. Discovery Channel thinks this is good fare to be shown in late afternoon rather than delegated to an older viewership after 9PM. Showing this much skin in this kind of desperate, survival situation is soft porn, and should be recognized as such by all parents.

What are they thinking? It's bad enough that other nations around the world think nothing of foul language and soft porn in their TV viewing as well as commercials, but why does America have to follow suit? Where is our sense of decency these days? We have become a broken bridge for our children!

Paul told Timothy that in the end times people would be addicted to lust and allergic to God, and that is exactly what is happening. When I think things couldn't possibly get worse, they do. Things get worse in such sick, graphic, and smutty ways.

Christians have become desensitized to foulness. The problem is that there is no way to give back a child's innocence when it is taken away by shows such as this. Will we every wake up?

I cry out to God, "How long, Lord? How long must we sit in this squalor that has become our once proud, Christian nation?"
