I am happy to be feeling well enough to be back on the blogging scene. Luckily, my illness seems to be better, and I thank many of you who Sent prayers and private emais, they meant alot. Now on to the infamous Browns. A few posts back, Cynical described her reasons for watching the show and some of her beliefs, which I thought it was a brilliant and interesting post.
I have to decided to do the same. The wonderful thing about us is that often, we see things differently, yet, respect each other and often decide what is the best thing to do here on the blog is a middle of the two.
I will be shocked if this train wreck of a show lasts another season. Therefore, I've decided that we should both just say it like it is, no holding back. The Browns certainly don't hold back on their fame whoring tactics, so our opinions will certainly be a bit more.... Blunt.
I started watching the show because I like family shows. I have never been near polygamist families, but was taught to be open minded and loving. I am of the christian faith. Soon after starting this blog, I was warned that the Browns were up to much more than just a family show, with grand Political ambitions. Was that certainly was true!
The bible certainly does not condemn polygamy, although any reasonable adult would also not that it was used in early times to populate. Also a study will show that most polygamy situations did not turn out well in the old testament.
Joseph Smith to me is a man who got caught cheating and turned it into a religion. Sorry, thats how I feel.
I also believe there are many that were born into this religion and may work and live very hard to do God's will as good people.
The Browns have made a mockery of it. Their greed, laziness, seemingly uncaring of what it is doing to their children is... Sad. How hypocritical is it to tweet all summer umpteen trips to Disneyland..... And our first clip of the new season is boo hoos over past debt and bad credit? HOW much more of their crocodile tears are left? TLC, you need to come up with something besides their debt or we might revolt. GO back to the home you have or shut up!
My one ounce of sympathy goes to Christine. she probably doesn't even know what to do at this point. I find that this is a very dysfunctional family. Where did their religion go? I see nothing of it. If it is the total basis of living this way, I am afraid they have lost their way, and Kody the head of the mess with his own wants and needs. This should be interesting. And we will not be holding back! Glad to be back some, and thankful for Cynical. my mouth is watering for the first review!!
