Where are you now Johnny? Can you come back?
First, let me plainly state that I do not sympathize, agree with or in any way condone the death and violence happening in France. Period.
I also believe strongly in freedom of speech, although some things I hear are worthless, as you may think MY words are as well.
But what is gained, what is the value of making fun of ANYONE'S religion, regardless of what it is? I know it is done all the time, but it is tasteless to me all the time as well.
Several late night comedians spoke up that they have the right to make fun of and ridicule anyone or anything. Yup, and I have the right to change the channel if that is the style of humor they choose to espouse.
I used to like Two and a Half Men but it became so reliant on blatant sexual jokes that it was more repulsive than funny, so....
This isn't an age thing (I don't think) since I felt this same way about comedians who stepped over the line in the 70's and 80's.
Most of it could never air on TV back then so we were not bombarded with it unless we chose to go to the comedy clubs or get their albums. I never chose that, but now Prime time TV hours are full of it. Maybe that is why I miss all the good advertisements until the Super Bowl. :-)
