|let us entertain your kid's!|
as small as swearing and sexual innuendo's. But Blasphemy? In MY books, It's not on.
While watching RIO today with my daughter, I overheard the female bird call out:
"Oh my GOD!!"
I ask one very serious and straight faced question - Why is it ok to say "Oh my God!" and teach Children that using God's name in vain is cool to do?
Another question, is it God in general that they are blaspheming against? or is it the 'Biblical' God directly? And if so, then why?
Is it really that hard to say "Oh my gosh!" ?? No. No it isn't.
In a few other child friendly 'family movies' I have heard other swear words as well. In the scene in 'How To Train Your Dragon' where Astrid loses to Hiccup, she has a tantrum and drops the F-bomb. I've listened to it closely a few times, if its not the F-bomb then it's most definitely 'Trucking' 'Mucking' 'Ducking' or 'Tucking'... Although I'm pretty sure it's the F-bomb. Why was that left in, after the final edit?
As a parent I am trying to teach my children to have class, to watch what they say, to honour God. The main children's entertainers via DVD are falling short here.
Just my two cents,
