Well if Pat Boone decrees it.... 

I haven't touched on the cencorship malarky that is running rampant now. Maybe this weekend. But check out this article. Pat Boone, has said that cencorship is not only a good thing, but that it is healthy for the arts. Huh? How is supression a good thing? How are the arts helped by an inability to freely express yourself? He had this to say:

"Censorship is healthy for any society, and that goes for arts, entertainment, anything. Self-imposed means that the majority of people say that is what we want, and it can be changed if people's attitudes change, which is how a democratic society works."

Again I say, huh? So if a majority says that rock n' roll is bad, then we outlaw it? If "bad" words are deemed unacceptable, then there will be fines and jail time for anyone having the audacity to make such utterances? I guess what Boone wants is for people to change their attitudes to accept his beliefs as correct, and then put a self-imposed ban on their creative outlets that don't adhere to his stifling beliefs. Idiotic.

Yes, Pat Boone is a devout Christian who sees fit to try and force others to see life thru his eyes (freedom of religion? Only if it is my religion. Yet another blog in the works).

If he becomes the public voice, we're in for a heap load of trouble.

Yes, there will be more blogs on this subject later.
