This is wretched

Isaiah had it right in Chapter 5, verse 20: Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Read this story and just think about how wrong it is that we as a society celebrate people like this. She, and the whole Hollywood culture, are so narcissistic it makes me ill. Maybe that is why I don't watch network news shows anymore. Other than her fine acting in "The Simple Life" and a homemade porn video, why do we know who Paris Hilton is? It's not as if she is a consequential person who has done significant things. She is a party-girl heiress with a good publicist.

This is America?

I think it was Jay Leno who said that Paris Hilton proves that you don't need to be poor to be "white trash."

Amen to that one brother.

Stories like this always make me think of Titus 1:15 "To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled."

I have to say though I laughed while reading your post. While reading how "you don't watch network news shows anymore. Other than "The Simple Life and a homemade porn video." I stopped there. It always pays to read the WHOLE quote in context. Still, it made me laugh.

I amended the post to clarify that issue for you. Thanks for pointing it out.
