I'm not usually a "downer" guy on here, but this is ridiculous. Lifetime's newest series, "Preachers' Daughters," is a reality show about Christian girls gone bad. The show airs on Tuesday evenings at 10pm ET/PT (9pm CT). I don’t know what kinds of “preachers” are allowing these idiots to do a reality TV show in their home, but come on!! The premise is just what you’d guess. Reality television about wild daughters of Pastors, who have denied their faith or at least decided to live on the other side of their faith.
"This reality show has three preachers' daughters in different situations that include teen pregnancy, contemplated abortion, planning a paternity test to discover who the father is, past drug and alcohol use, dreams of becoming a porn star, lying, disrespect for parents, and discussion of sexual acts with sisters and friends."
So what we end up with is another bad impression of pastors' families, and in general a bad impression of Christians period. We didn’t need any help with that. Of course a huge percentage of preachers' kids turn out well, but that makes for boring TV.
I'm sure these pastors and their wives genuinely care about their daughters, but these girls are being exploited in this reality show and their mistakes made public just for money. God bless their heart for their kids and their desire to show love and forgiveness, but it's not going to work.
It just makes me mad, because I have daughters. And I tried my best to protect them from the fishbowl life we live. Good or bad every little girl and boy deserve a chance to grow up and make mistakes without the whole world looking on.
Add to this, the new movie called "Spring Break" staring former Disney stars being "naughty" which is targeted at pre-teens.
As Los Angeles-based therapist Nancy Irwin noted, there's nothing acceptable about "hyping a soft-core porn movie to minors."
There is nothing acceptable about exploited Preachers' Daughters.
BTW - did anyone out there notice that Duck Dynasty is killing it in the ratings? One of the most popular shows on TV. With some redneck Christians who make duck calls. I love that show. So do a lot of other people. And no young girls are harmed in the making of this program!
Hey, I'm no prude here. But are there not enough broken hearts, STDs, and unwanted pregnancies in the world already?
Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush." (Jeremiah 6:15 NIV)
