oh and when i was 5 i was spastic and funny =D yay il grow up too be my dream =D
Oh really?? Because last I checked, if you read through entire contents of say, the Bible (not just the popular, watered-down parts that they put in children`s versions) you will find TONS of passages that fully condone AND promote acts of extreme violence and/or murder in the name of God. If you don`t believe me, all you need do is pick up your nearest hotel room Bible and have a look through the more unpopular parts such as: Leviticus 20:9-"For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him."
Get outside and walk around people. Oi.
besides... its how you`re raised not what you see. (They`ve proven you are who you will be for the rest of your life by age 5.)
Her parents will probably force her to believe what they want her to believe, not let her form her own opinions on how things should be. It really is sickening.
"Violence in music" hasn`t been around forever. I`m sorry, but Frank Sinatra never sung about smoking weed, killing cops, and degrading women. If her parents let her listen to rap music, they need to be shot. No exceptions.
The fact that IAB actually allowed this to appear as a contribution is just plain disturbing. Do you condone this behavior?
Seriously, f*ck you I-Am-Bored. F*ck you. Take this link down.
See what I did there? XD"
ic wat u did thar
See what -I- did -there-?
Give it a rest.
Yeah I fall under that category too. But its really true. 13-15 is the most annoying age even though its just a phase everyone goes through. Teens generally in that age group think they know everything and are so clever when they actually are talking about things they know nothing about. They strive to sound intelligent at every oppurtunity. They have it in their heads that they are smarter then everyone and so different and unique and nobody understands them.
But this was really random and off topic so I`m just gonna stop now
Pretty valid points, but some games and some music really do seem to produce violent feelings and thoughts, but i still think it`s the parents fault for kids gone wrong from music and video games. They should control what their kids play. I`ll admit it`s harder to control music, but for video games? C`mon, everything with guns is now rated M, which means, unless your kid has acquired a fake ID, they can`t get it. So don`t get it for them if you`re gonna complain about how it made them violent later.
Yes, religion can be quite fearsome. Witch hunts in the early days, and the holocaust was pretty much religion oriente
1. Hitler was, in fact, religious.
2. Ever heard of the Crusades? You can`t honestly suggest that religion has never caused violence. Or what about the Salem Witch Trials? Or, maybe I`m not remembering correctly, but there was this one big religiously-driven event that killed a few thousand people in 2001 if you get my drift.
3. Non-religious people don`t have morals, because they don`t feel they have to answer to their crimes? Quite the opposite, religious people say `Jesus still loves me no matter what I do` whereas the atheist must be 100% responsible for his own actions. The atheist is a good, law-abiding citizen because he chooses to be, not because he`s afraid his deity will set him on fire.
i thought it was cute and funny to hear an eight year old talk like that.
What I ask really, is for people to be a little more open-minded about these things, as I like to think I am about religion in general. I don`t believe in a God or a higher power, which is my right to do so, and I also believe that religion is the cause of most wars/conflicts/etc, however... I do respect the views of those that do. Without wishing to sound like an cliche, I think we all need to listen to one another with OPEN EARS. Enough with the "God exists" "No he doesn`t"; this debate will rage on and on ad nauseum. Instead, think about proving it to each other.
A child will be exposed to curse words from a great deal of sources over the course of his or her life, so why do parents consistently feel the need to screen their child from it in the vain hope that they will never learn to swear? Of course, it is undesirable for your child to burst out with a curse word in a restaurant for example, but this is an entirely different situation. i.e, this young lady is a child actor, and a very good one to boot.
but i guess someone said the lead singer IS her mom? so i possibly revoke the part about the parents
but, who else than a child should be speaking on behalf of CHILDREN
that is what the video was about. jesus christ.
it`s for a BAND who is trying to say that children should be taken more seriously as humans, and showing that music and videos games don`t make kids violent.
it`s so socially excepted to cram religion and etc. down your childs throat but try teaching them the TRUTH and letting them form their own opinions about life and suddenly you`re brainwashing your kid and ruining them
I don`t really consider that a swear..
Anyway, of course music and video games don`t have anything to do with violence. I just spent like 5 hours playing Oblivion and killing stuff, and I have no urge to go find a sword and slice someone up. I also listen to ICP, which besides being violent, can also be very disturbing (although I like it <3).
So yep. I don`t think it matters if it`s scripted or not. And Bill O`Reilly sucks balls. He`s a douche who can`t listen to other people`s points ov view.
This is just lame.
and also, pretty much ALL wars in history have been caused by religion. no violence eh.
oh and i think its far more disturbing when parents force children to believe that gays are evil, dinosaurs didnt exist & evolution is rubbish..or any sort of bible crap. but no1 really cares bout that now do they.
I think why they used a child was because no one pays attention to an adult talking into a camera anymore.She probably won`t remember any of that, anyway.
She`s learned a few new words, though, and as most parents know, kids *always* pick up on the stuff you don`t want them to.
Kudzu, I hope you know that there are intelligent liberals, just like there are moronic conseratives (eg Bill O`Reilly).
And about the video: Good points, but shouldn`t have made the girl swear. And leave religion out of it.
GET THE drat OVER IT and i do agree with almost all those points in the video except that i do believe in God but no i`m not a christian and i am probably the most liberal person you would ever meet
poo drat mean person ass bitch whore slut
2. Video games don`t affect the kids` mind to be violent unless they have a learning disability or they`re just plain stupid/retarded. If anything, it helps the kid get over the fear of violence so if they ever get in a situation like that, they don`t curl up into a little ball and cry.
3. Religion doesn`t try to promote violence. Christianity, Catholicism, Muslim and Jewish all , from what I know about them (not much besides Christianity) DO have some violence in their teachings to show the PAST of things. Not to promote it.
It`s to easy to blame children. So O`Reilly, go picking on something your owne size.andIt is deffinatly NOT childrens fault the world is messed up, because the world isn`t any more messed up than it was in the past!
I hate scripted, precocious puppets even more.
Debating it is a moot point, it`s not the child`s point of view anyway.
I dunno, some people just grow up violent, no matter what they watch on TV or to whom they listen to.
See what I did there? XD
Yes we all know how everyone is being pushed to hard into one thing or another but that doesnt mean you should completely subside it
oh and P,S, her mom did a really good job directing it and putting her 8 y/o girl on there saying a bunch of cuss lines, great way to get your point through
No matter how cool/adult/genius she sounds the fact that she is a little kid does not go away. It`s a fact that things that happen when your a kid are more lasting in their effects then things that happen as an adult. Even physically her brain is not 100% finished developing.
Dude, she`s just a kido.
That was pretty funny =)and totally right!
Was that a little boy or a girl!?
