Skip to comments.“View” Lefties Can’t See Why Child Porn for Teens on MTV Might Be a Problem

The smug certainty with which leftists insist that they're better people than conservatives has always been an interesting phenomenon. Were asked to believe that our opponents are more moral, more responsible, more enlightened, and more sensitive than we are one minute and one of our betters turns around and asks what the big deal is about some outrageous case of moral degeneracy the next.
Such is the case of the latest pontifications from The View co-host Joy Behar. In a discussion of Skins, the new MTV show which might have broken child pornography laws by filming actors as young as 15 performing explicit simulated sexual acts, Behar suggested that the only reason people are getting worked up is because of the channel its on:
I think its because its MTV, because on HBO as you pointed out, I believe Oz was on there and theyre all doing some crazy stuff and Sex in the City was on HBO, Behar said. Whats the difference if youre watching all these grown-ups talking about all of these anal sex, etc., or young people? Whats the difference?Correct me if Im wrong, but Im pretty sure laws against producing child pornography dont say, nobody can do this except for HBO.

Behar is criminally stupid.
Why the hell does anyone watch these yentas to begin with?
They are "sex positive" 100%. So long as somebody is getting their rocks off, the View thinks it is double-plus good.
The Bible has some pretty good descriptions of the Left and the End Times.
I turned it off and this MTV revamp is a even bigger mess.
Folks, if you question the program turn it off!
15 isn’t even age of consent.... dang
There are also disturbing “Skins” ads all throughout the subway system here in New York depicting one kid appearing to be stoned. His eyes are droopy and blood shot.
“...Why the hell does anyone watch these yentas to begin with?...”
Because without those that do endure the daily self-inflicted punishmient, the rest of us that don’t engage in it wouldn’t know jus how incredibly insane those witches are, Elizabeth Hassleback notwithsatanding.
Rom 1:18-32 - We’re livin’ it.
What I want to know is, Where are the parents of these children? Do they know their child is in these shows? If not, why not?
If they know, they too should be charged with contributing to their delinquency.
If they don't know: They should prosecute & SUE MTV.
I can't imagine as a parent learning that my child did these things, and on Nat'l TV.
To add a reference to Brave New World to your reference to 1984, they think encouraging the children in their sex play is a societal good.
a lot of Ls in there as I recall..
lewd, lascivious, loud, licentious, libelous.. not too mention looney, lefty, and liberal if ya read between the lines. ;-)
28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know Gods righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
The line of the century!!
To liberals, it’s only a crime if the “wrong people” are doing it.
Well, that is Rosie O’Donnell’s favorite snack (after shag carpet).
If there is no God, there is no sin. And if human urges, in and of themselves, are not sinful, then why would sexuality be improper at any age? As Obama says, sin is a state of being inconsistent with "MY values."
This whole matter seems like just one more head-on collision between atheists/agnostics/secular humanists and those who believe in God.
Of course, to those who believe in God...understanding of the human animal is an extension of what God tells us about our sinful nature. We understand how disobeying his laws about sexual behavior leads to the erosion of the psyche, destruction of a man's character, and indeed significant impoverishment of the soul itself.
In this matter of pornography, we see where the worlds collide. There is no reconciliation IMHO between those who believe and those who do not.
As an aside, psychiatrists and therapists who deal with sexual addiction tend to agree with God, even when they refuse to recognize His existence. They understand that human sexuality is not a toy and certainly not something to be toyed with by immature people. It is a powerful human urge. It can destroy a person as surely as drugs or alcohol abuse.
This is just one more example of where the Left has fallen prey to its own permissiveness. The Left's understanding of human nature is too immature and myopic to be used as a template for constructive living.
