Traditionally Unethical

5 Comments


Traditions are often fun or bring about that familiar feeling of security, customs or beliefs we enjoy.

One of ours is cooking turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole and Apple/Cranberry Dish or as we call it “Bob’s Apple-Cranberry Casserole.” (Bob is Mark’s father) on Thanksgiving morning.

The whiffs of turkey basting or aromas of pecan pie fill the house as we catch the “thieves” who claim to be “legitimate taste testers” of all things fowl.

In between the fights of who is in the way in the kitchen, we catch glimpses of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York.

Watching the parade for as many years as I can remember, the 2013 event celebrated 87 years.

I wonder what the first Macy’s parade executives, directors and or Event coordinators would think of the sexually explicit, distasteful and provocative dance at around 10AM in the morning of “Kinky Boots?”

explain tolerance

Mark and I were taking a break from the kitchen when this display from an award winning musical was performed on national television.  We both became quiet as we observed numerous “drag queens” in barely “nothings” but mostly boots dancing and singing in front of millions of onlookers including children.

While the shock set in, we both agreed how despicable the presentation was and very glad we had no children to explain why men were dressed like women in skimpy clothes.

As if that wasn’t enough to ruin our turkey, Matt Lauer and his co-host Samantha Guthrie actually gushed over the sickening performance.

Evidently we are 2 of many who are outraged over this representation of what America is NOT.  The Huffington Post reported numbers of complaints along with an explanation of how the “right wingers” expressed their disapproval. Also the article made reference to the “message of tolerance and acceptance while it was too cold to show much skin.”

Hogwash.

If you watched this “presentation of tolerance and acceptance” and were as repulsed as we were, please click on the link below and let the organizers know how you felt about this display of anti-Biblical perversion.

And then pray for our nation to repent.

1 Corinthian 6:9: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.”

  1. Thanks so much for posting this. I sent an email to Macy’s.

  2. I have to say that I missed the parade this year. As a dad of two children, and because this is in fact the annual New York City Christmas Parade attended by many children, I too think this was inappropriate entertainment for that setting. I do not think that complaining about it will do any good. It might work if this parade had been held in Enid, Oklahoma. The bare bones truth of the matter is that very few people who own property, live, and work in New York City care about or have any sympathy for what Christian fundamentalists think vis-a-vis what goes on there. That is just a baselne fact. I doubt that going after the sponsors of the broadcast would do any good either because they just pay for network coverage of the parade—not the content of the parade itself. My guess is that the sponsors were totally unaware that the presentation in question was going to be part of the parade until it was all said and done.

    • Actually it does make a difference to complain. If you check out onemillionmoms website, you will see all the work they have done with shows and the positive end results. This group played a big part in getting Ellen DeGeneres gone from JC Penney as their spokesperson. Recently, Citi ad came out with Samuel Jackson. He used a cuss word. Onemillion moms sent letters to the company and if you watch it now you will notice he isn’t cussing anymore. So, yes it does work and the Bible plainly tells us to speak the truth. John 8:31-32
