I am a sucker for a great singer. After not watching American Idol last year, I admit, I was hooked again this year. From the beginning I really enjoyed several of the singers. There was so much talent. I loved Pia, Haley, Stefano and Scotty. Casey, James and Jacob had some excellent vocals and performances, at times, but there was just too much drama connected to them.

My hopes were either Haley or Scotty would win, and if you watch the show, you know that the 17 year old Christian, Scotty, won. I was very happy for him. I look forward to hearing more from him - and hope we do.

But once again, I felt dirty watching the finale. Thru out the season one host continually brought foul language into almost every show. But last night, a host of very scantily clad woman shimmied and shook everything they had for the audience of millions. Lady G... - so totally NOT a lady in my book, just disgusted and embarrassed me with her make out performance on top of the make shift mountain. The Idol Women sang her 'Born This Way" song to start off the show - which should have warned me away. What has happened to keeping your clothes on in public? What has happened to moral integrity?

The music culture in our country is scary. Singers aren't just singing anymore - they are giving peep shows for free on national television. Reminds me of everything I have read about Rome before it was destroyed.

I pray for our nation and the corruption that is eating away at the soul of who we are. How easy it is for the world to just go along with the flow and be deceived by the deceiver. Little by little, the unacceptable has become acceptable - it is scary, and people are so sucked up into it, that they don't even realize how foul it is.

I guess that is why I woke up this morning with a heavy heart and one word on my mind. Integrity. The quality of having strong moral principals, moral uprightness.

People of integrity are becoming fewer and fewer . . .

May God continue to protect the hearts and souls of our children.

I agree wholeheartedly with your writing! All that, especially the foul language, is why I seldom ever watch TV. It just makes me sick.

My husband and I have often commented how thankful we are to have grown up during the 50's. So much that is on TV and elsewhere is so beyond what was acceptable or even dreamed of back then. It has to be very difficult to raise children with a true sense of what is right and wrong in today's world.

You know, I was actually mad that we had to watch all that 'crap' just to get to the finale...Lady Gag me, Judas Priest and all those other singers that sing trash just disgusted me.
Anyway, I'm glad Christianity prevailed and it made me think of a post for the near future...

That's the reason I don't watch shows like Idol anymore, Valerie... If someone like Lady G represents our kids these days and represents music, then God be with us ALL.

I have kept up with some of the music and I do like Scotty.. Glad he won.

Psalm 25:21 should be a motto in each of our homes.I watch very little TV and yet when I do I am amazed at the language and content of what used to be decent shows.
