Before you leave any angry comments, because of the title, please read the whole thread..
I'm making this thread just to highlight some issues I believe are wrong with today's society..
There was a ridiculous story today in one of britains national newspapers, the story was printed in the the sun, which I'm sure most of you know to
be a ridiculous newspaper and I know is hated in this type of community.
Although the fact is, it is claimed to be be britains biggest selling newspaper..
Here is the article (can't link I'm using a phone):-
Simon cowell is just like a 21st century Jesus- according to a band of hardcore Christians. The x factor mogul has been lauded in evangelical magazine
re, which believes his straight talking and drive is just like the messiahs.
The official journal for the assemblies of god church declares Simons coming on it's cover indoor the headline "Jesus the one we think of as being
meek and mild gentle and loving and full of compassion had the ability to talk tough. For some his words were upsetting and difficult to swallow- just
like cowells- but he spoke truth and doesn't the truth hurt sometimes?
"Simon cowell takes and learns from them and grows in the process, and there are numerous stories in the bible of people who do the same"
The article also brackets cowell 51, with the father of all nations, Abraham and the prophet Elijah- who could raise the dead and went to heaven in a
Now my point of this thread, is although it is a ridiculous story and claim, there are aspects that ring true. In this day and age, these celebrities
are revered and looked upon as almost gods..
Some people hang on every word these people say, and most days can't wait to get on twitter and Facebook to find out what they're 'heroes' have to
say.. They are worshipped, with images plastered all over their Walls, they stand In the freezing cold for hours just to catch a glimpse of a
celebrity walking into a hotel.. Concerts are like huge churches with everyone worshiping these 'gods' whilst chanting in unison the words of
various hits.. Even the likes of lady gaga hold more influence of a generation of people than most heads of state including the president, even more
influence than religious leaders from all the major religions...
Anyway you get point, I feel this is a big problem with society..
On the other hand is this the way tptb want it? People brainwashed by these so called stars, where nothing else in the world matters but what the
latest news on Justin beiber is..
The media controlled by tptb, regularly splash the latest celebrity news all over the front page, whilst real world issues get a small paragraph in an
obscure part of the newspaper...
