There Had to be an Explanation


“Whenever a culture’s goal becomes entertainment, a law of degeneration immediately sets in. In the field of economics, Gresham’s Law states that bad money drives out good. In the same way, bad entertainment displaces that which is not quite as bad. In a sinful world, poor comedians will go for the easy laugh with dirty jokes, lousy screenwriters go for high ratings through half-dressed sex cookies, and mindless rock bands yell into the mike, using a lot of dry ice and lasers in the background. In the Church, the principle is no different” (Mother Kirk, p. 128).
