Obscene lyrics shouldn't be blared

Has America really sunk that low where we have blaring music that is screaming obscene lyrics?

I was outside in Huntington with four kids ranging from 3 to 11 when a car was coming down the road real slow with the music blasting. Right when the guy gets beside us, the barrage of foul language was unleashed upon us. "What is that?" one child asked. "What are those words?" they asked. Then the person driving the car looks at me like to say, "You got a problem?"

Well, yes I do. If you want to listen to that filth and garbage, keep it to yourself.

Our nation's moral decay started with music like this, and it seems to have gotten to the point where women and men have become so pathetic that they will go to any extreme to get noticed. The women who try to be so modest are dressed like harlots, and the men promote it.

Whatever happened to the women's liberation? Women today are being exploited more than they ever have been. Vulgarity is in the newspaper, on the television screen and on the radio, as well.

Parents, listen to what your kids are listening to and watch what they are watching. Let's get some dignity back in the home.

What would God do if he would walk down the streets and hear the mess that we are allowing our kids to listen to? If this wasn't bad enough, then there was a 15-year-old walking down the street with an obscene word displayed across the front of his shirt.

Let's get some of God back into the house, but first of all let's get Him in our hearts. Then if we are truly saved, all we Christians would stand against junk like this.
