Christian Grammy nominee walked out of the show – I don’t blame her one bit

I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but I’ve become an old prude.

I don’t think scantily-clad women should spread their legs on tv in prime time.

I wish song lyrics didn’t have to include profanity and overt sexual references.

I think men look awesome in traditional tuxedos, and I wish they would honor formal occasions by wearing them.

And therefore, I completely understand why contemporary Christian music artist Natalie Grant -nominated for two awards – walked out of Sunday’s Grammy show. Hat tip to our friends at The Black Sphere for reporting.

Grant and her husband went to the show to proudly represent gospel music, but left the show early after having heard and seen a bit too much.

I’m with them. I do believe art represents life, and sadly moral decay in our nation was on display on Sunday. I generally watch these shows because I want to make sure I’m up to speed with what’s going on — and I know it’s every generation’s job to try to shock the previous one.

But I’m not shocked. I’m just really, really disappointed. And I haven’t even watched the State of the Union yet…

I quite watching the Grammys not only it’s un-Godly but the music even stinks.

I stopped watching the Grammy after the Clinton’s won.. I figured it had lost all credibility so why waste my time.. Same with the Nobel Prize.. Way to many idiots winning both for doing either crap work or no work at all… (Obama)

I agree the shock factor just makes them look like fools and desperate.

I am not aware that Natalie gave a reason for leaving early. What is your source?

umm, Natalie Grant herself. She said so on her twitter feed.

I believe that she did the right thing – I stopped watching award shows because instead of looking glamorous most look like street walkers and the music….well….

Kudos to Amy Grant – and shame on those attending that have children….would they want them watching that garbage and ….. as for the White House….Liar Liar should be the new name of the State of the Union Address – unlike Tim Carey there is nothing we can give Obama to tell the truth – it will just be another sad case of lies and garbage – not tuning in.

it was NATALIE Grant – not Amy – that left the show.
it was JIM Carey’s character that was given something to ‘tell the truth’,
NOT Tim Carey.
As for the SOTU…. yep, liar, liar.

My family refused to watch it…and from what i have seen and read I am glad we didn’t. There is enough smut and degeneration in the world already without the Grammy’s adding to it….

Disgusted Parent

I watched a little of it and have to admit..I regret watching any of it..The world is full of smut and it seems this generation as well as my generation is promoting all the garbage..I couldn’t agree with you more…

I did not watch as I figured it would be vulgar. I will not watch the State of the Union, as the President is a liar. He does not, and will not tell the truth. I hate what they show oh prime time, and think it is disgusting to subject our children to this behavior.

Jane Jessee

And that is why we have TVLand, Hallmark, MEtv , UP and INSP stations. They show none of this garbage or least TVland doesn’t start showing it until 10PM, but even that isn’t as bad as the others.

As do I , Dennis. I know my generation was a bit over the top at times, but not like this. I remember listening to Lou Reed’s song “Heroin”, and it being interrupted, never to be heard again on even FM radio, because of it’s overt references to drugs. Now, even some children’s music crosses that line. I never even turned it on……..

Natalie Grant is just amazing, I respect her so much for being true to her beliefs. Natalie, if you read this, come back to visit Fairhope Alabama! I’d love to see you perform here again.

John Thomas

I get why people think they go too far, because they do……….but I also think it exemplifies that we’re uptight prudes. I obviously don’t think it’s child appropriate, but it’s not something that makes me as an adult cover my eyes or strong enough to have made me walk out.

thier was nothing good about it it looked more like porn and it was disgusting thats why no one with any morals liked it i just turned i

your statement, if you really look at it, would be the attitude in question…people are hardened and calloused to this, until it is accepted as status quo…and some have been pushed far enough…to ignore is to condone, and I’m really glad to see so many NOT condoning this any more…is sex the only thing they can come up with now a days…no talent, no voice, and so the ‘entertainment’ is to see how vulgar it can be…just like movies…the writers are too lazy to research a story line, so they turn it over to the stunt men and computers and… Read more »

Gordon Waite

I think I got about ten minutes into it before I was so disgusted with the bull crap speeches, and behavior, that I changed the channel. I guess from what I am hearing, that it was the most “In your face” liberal pretense of a formal event!

I don’t think I’ve ever watched the Grammys and I’m not about to start.

jimmie redding

I’ve never watched either. I only watch old movies on tv, westerns and such. Just good shows Mayberry, Waltons mt., Little House on the Prarie.

MrsBeezers

I was wondering how many of the Christian artists walked away – and if anyone would report it. Kudos to the Grants for upholding their beliefs and for simply walking away. If the Libs had been offended, there would have been a scene about how their rights were being violated and all that crap. These artists simply walked out – no fanfare, no drama. I only caught bits and pieces and what I did see of the show was offensive – mostly to my ears.

Janice Linn

She did the correct thing, and didn’t try to make others values in line with hers. She did it the right way. Hurray for all stances..

It was the wedding ceremony that put me off. That does not belong on the Grammys.

I have often said that the beginning of the end started when mothers went to work. Now before you ladies out there think I am a “MC PIG” anyone who knows me can tell you I have the utmost respect for all women and believe that they are all wonderful. Does anyone agree that the moral decay of the US started when mothers were forced to work to make ends meet instead of being at home as their children’s moral compass?

USUKBALLZCBS
Guest

I was a working mom, until I lost my job, thanks to the chimp in charge of our White House. I do agree with you, children need more time with their mothers. I wish I could have been home more when they were younger.

Just Axin

If taxes weren’t so high (thanks to both parties) more families could leave one parent at home more often.

USUKBALLZCBS
Guest

That’s right hubby:)

jimmie redding
Guest

I agree. That may not have been the reason, but it was about the time.

Mary
Guest

It was just part of the Communist plan to destroy the Family by convincing women that staying at home was not fulfilling and somehow devalued us. If the Feminist can separate the families by telling women that we don’t need a man then the government can step in and indoctrinate our children. The same thing with the gay agenda. Blur the lines of traditional Families till it does not matter anymore.

cher
Guest

My Mother had to work ,at the time it was easier because she was able to work around our schedule she was home when we got home from school, and then my Dad would come and he would take over while she went to work,and yes I do have a moral compass because of her teachings and my upbringing and I will always respect the things she did for our family love and Miss you Mom. and Dad.

Many working mothers then and now are still good mothers. I know many.

I just wonder what the reaction would be had Perry done here little “satanic ritual” musical performance using Muslim(or any other religion for that matter) effigys and symbols? I’m not even Christian but even I find it insulting and am amazed that it seems so acceptable to attack and mock anything Christian.

The Grammy’s (and pretty much any event connected to Liberal Hollywood) have now become a Political Statement. It’s a crazy, dysfunctional Liberal Circus being jammed down our throats as they dare us to object. I, personally, am a Republican who is for same sex marriage, but it had no place on the stage at the Grammy’s. This in NO WAY will endear itself to their cause.

This is entertainment people, don’t get your panties in a bunch. Alice Cooper and Ozzie Osbourne rocked it one whole helluva lot harder than this 30 years ago.

Grow up. There is no scientific and provable evidence that there is an invisible sky daddy nor an invisible bad guy devil. It’s for show…enjoy it for what it is. Lighten up, people. Don’t take life so seriously, nobody gets out alive.

Lisa Futvoye-Shepherd

I think you and I have very different ideas if what constitutes “proof”, A “feeling” is not proof, an ancient, questionably authored, text as proof? No, that’s the claim.

Scientific, quantifiable, verifiable evidence that a god, any god exists..then perhaps there will be something to talk about. Until then..y’all are delusional and suffering from cognitive dissonance.

Besides your god’s reputation isn’t such that I would EVER worship it even if it was real.

If you removed all religion from life, this, and such as this, would still be trash. There are many behaviors in this world that would be condemned, even without religion. Your self righteous “no God” talk is meaningless in this discussion.

My brother who studied psychology had an instructor who is a christian psychologist tell him, that unbelievers are different creatures who don’t know better and Lisa Futvoye-Sheperd, by her post, proves that.

jjjjjjjjjj

Wow! Punctuation and spelling count to you yet moral decency doesn’t? This is what’s soooo wrong with America today!

It’s the moral decay of people like you that are hurting the younger generation. (Alice & Ozzie weren’t humping a pole in nearly nothing either.)

RG

I bet it’d shock her if she knew Alice Cooper was a Christian.

Just Dew
Guest

Lisa Futvoye-Shepherd mocking God by calling Him names like you just did and denying any scientific and provable evidence of His existence just proves how uneducated you are and how immature. You will find out (and maybe VERY soon) that God does exist and so does Satan but unless you want to learn about The One True God you will not see Heaven. God does NOT tolerate MOCKERS like you, so if you continue to conform to this WORLD you will never know the beauty, joy and peace that believers will. So sad for you……..

You are part of the problem if you don’t see anything wrong with this. Doesn’t matter if there is a God or not, every society that has fallen into moral decline has failed, every single one. Look at history. Those who fail to learn from it, are doomed to repeat it.

Brett Dent

You even using the term “sky daddy” to degrade many people who believe in faith is just a testament to your character.

I’d rather believe in God and be a kind, humble, compassionate person than be someone like you who seeks to demean and degrade. Any day, I might add.

She sings beautiful Christian songs, no curse words, or vulgar lyrics, but normal sweet words. Natalie Grant has been around for a few years.. The Grammy’s were awful and too bad Beyonce had to try to up trashy Miley Cyrus, now she is no better than her, what a shame, I use to think she was so pretty now all I see is her nasty butt.cheeks.

Sam Casey
Guest

Heh, this was a sarcastic statement used to show that I don’t care about the Grammy’s. Mrs. Grant has bigger balls than most of the people in the room so, it’s no surprise that she would do what she did. People should stand up for their principles, just like she did.

It’s such shame how far we have come.

Christian’s don’t ignorantly believe in Evolutionized Racism or EVEN Separate Races in the first place .. Which makes me laugh at the worldly perceptions and ideologies that they continue to believe in, along with framing and slandering “ALL” Christians as that those evil and vile not to mention sinful accusations. That the Majority of Christians don’t even acknowledge or condone as normal and Christian behavior.

I am so proud of Christians who are courageous enough to take a stand against the profane and inappropriate entertainment industry. Like Natalie Grant and her husband, I would have walked out as well. Our Christian witness must be a bold one today. Recently, I have had to set some similar boundaries, and the ridicule I have experienced has been painful; however, I applaud and appreciate my Christian brothers and sisters who uphold honor and decency.

There is no self respect, no pride anymore, it is all foolishness, sex, gaudiness and classless. I remember when people nominated for such awards would arrive in their best, looking dapper and chic. Now they show up in clothing not fit for a dog fight and call it fashion. The glaring sexual performances on stage are better saved for the local XXX rated club unless male audience members have lots of dollar bills on hand. Disgusting the low our nation has sunk to.

Common decency and self respect have been lost in this great country and young men and women are being taught that it’s sexy to dress like fools and tramps. As a minister I am not afraid to approach a person and tell them that they are embarrassing. I recently approached a young man in Wal-Mart and told him to pull his pants up to his hips and stop showing off his butt because in doing so makes him look like he is gay looking for a partner.
