A year or so ago I (Michele Hickford) wrote an article about how Christian music artist Natalie Grant walked out of the Grammy awards. At the time I wrote,
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.
As I said then and still believe now, I’m not shocked by the cultural decline in our nation, I’m just really disappointed.
This election cycle, the left and mainstream media feigned disgust and broadcast mock outrage when they dug up an old recording of Donald Trump caught in a private moment bragging about his ability to get whatever he wants from beautiful women, even going so far as to simply grab their “p***y.”
Whatever you think about that comment, Donald Trump is not the cause of our decline. He is simply a symptom.
Consider Marco Rubio’s descent during the primaries when he brought up Donald Trump’s hand size, and questioned whether it had anything to do with his male endowment. That may have led to Rubio’s undoing.
In any event, what personally disgusts me overall about this election cycle is the widespread cultural embarrassment it has uncovered.
Rather than discuss critically important issues of constitutional freedoms, economic recovery, fiscal responsibility, national security, or criminal behavior and corruption at the highest levels of our government, we’re talking about beauty queens (oh by the way, you can’t say “overweight” anymore; it’s “high Body Mass Index”), profanity, and whether or not airplane first class seat armrests actually go up and down.
We have celebrities starting a new fashion trend in “vagina cleavage,” parading around in little more than a sandwich bag and high heels – and they complain Trump “objectifies” women? Gimme a break.
And now we have the ever-edgy Madonna trying to find post-menopausal relevance by offering a Monica Lewinsky to anyone who votes for Hillary Clinton.
To show you how bad it’s gotten, THE HILL is actually reporting this.
Madonna is pledging to perform oral sex on voters who cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton.
The pop queen, known for her shocking antics, made the remark Tuesday while opening for comedian Amy Schumer in New York.
“If you vote for Hillary Clinton,” Madonna told the crowd at Madison Square Garden, “I will give you a blow job.”
“And I’m good,” the 58-year-old “Like a Virgin” singer, an outspoken supporter of the Democratic presidential nominee, said to cheers from the audience.
“I’m not a tool. I take my time,” Madonna boasted.

Um…you’re not a tool? Beg to differ. Yep Madge, that’s a great way to show little girls how it’s done. How to be a role model for women. You go girl.
I will be very happy when the pendulum swings back a little bit. This is getting absolutely ridiculous.
