NewsMax.com: Late Night Jokes: "People are now wondering what to do with Foley's seat in congress. How about they start with Lysol? Then some Bactene. After that cover it with plastic. "
Is Leno really saying that homosexual behavior is foul, filthy, digusting, obscene, and dirty? If so, how does he get away with it?
Many of us can remember a gerneration that deemed that the only clean sex was that sanctified by the marriage between a man and a woman. "Dirty" books, "dirty" jokes, "dirty" speech, were repulsive. Some words were considered dirty. The enlightented sixties changed that, and it became chic and free spirited to use the dirty talk of young lads before ladies and adults. Even the girls gloried in filthy talk. It was sooooo urbane.
Did you every notice how language has changed? When I was a kid, adults didn't talk "dirty." Dirty talking was done by kids and adolescents outside the hearing of the adults. Now any "adult" movie has dirty talking, portrays dirty sex, and wallows in moral and conversational filth. I forbear to mention the spiritual and idolatrous filthiness.
There was a generation that felt it was being naughty by flocking to "Gone with the Wind" in order to hear Clark Gable say, "Frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a damn." Women would shiver and men would get a naughty chill up their back. How daring and naughty!
But how does Leno get away with speaking such truth?
Is it only Republicans who can be dirty? Is it normal for a President to have sex with an intern and then lie about it under oath? Afterall, everyone has a dirty six life in private and everyone lies about sex, don't they? Don't they? And if they all do, does that make it clean?
I guess Mark Foley's real crime is being a Republican. Right?
1Co 6:18 "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body."
2Co 12:21 "...I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed."
Col 3:5 "Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry...."
1Th 4:3 "For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication...."
Ephesians 5:11, 12 "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret."
Deuteronomy 23:17 "There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel."
Jeremiah 8:12 "Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush...."
