Furious Double Standards

We live in a society which is totally confused about sin, goodness, art, pornography, sex and– you name it.

I guess it is inevitable in a nation which has forgotten its christian roots and has moved on to a rule of everyone is free to do pretty much what they want.

In Sydney news has come out that the photo below was ruled inappropriate to use in a fund-raising auction by a major hospital.

We allow little girls to dress up as sexually provocative teenagers, we view scenes of near-depravity on television every night and tolerate every form of sexual behaviour as normal.

But to take a photo of a boy dressed modestly with the permission of his mother (who in this case is the artist) is seen as somehow "inappropriate."

We have a very strange and highly variable set of moral "standards" which to me make no sense.

  1. I'm not sure what the point of the photo is as far as hospital fundraising, but I really don't see anything inappropriate about it.
