    The modern entertainment industry has an open and stated agenda of promoting substance abuse and wanton sexuality. Part of this agenda includes an attempt to destroy traditional marriage and family. 

    Modern Hollywood portrays marriage as a burdensome institution to be scorned and ridiculed. Indeed, Hollywood treats marriage as something to be avoided at all costs.

    Unfortunately, an impressionable public has begun to imitate what is shown on television and movies. As a result, the rates of illegitimacy and disease are skyrocketing.

    The irrefutable fact is that wanton, uncontrolled sexuality does have harmful effects for both the individual and society. Shame on those who seek to impose this harm.

    If you don't like her music, don't listen to it and don't let your kids listen to it. If you don't like her video don't watch it and don't let your kids watch it. See, easy, problem solved. If you can't control YOUR kids that's YOUR problem.

    Even the serpent was disgusted.

    All of these videos follow the same simple recipe. Madonna perfected it in the '80's and Elvis before that. Shock people and violate morality and you will be rewarded.

    The only way to combat it is to use it as motivation to go out and do good things with and for your kids. Overcome darkness with light.

    I know the author of this Deseret News article meant well, but she fell right into the trap. This article probably generated a few thousand more views for the video.

    Attacks on morals will continue to intensify, especially as society becomes more and more desensitized to the content.

    Minaj is getting exactly what she wants. Even the "prudes" are talking about her video. That is money in the bank for her!

    It just wouldn't be America if the Moral Majority weren't outraged about something.
