'Congregants, please open your 'Us Weekly' to Kunis 3:12...'

by Jeremy Hooper

Baptist Press columnist Kelly Boggs has determined LGBT-inclusive pop culture to America's reigning religious faith:

During the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, two pop culture goddesses kissed. Singers Madonna and Britney Spears intimately embraced to an ecstatic ovation. The televised kiss encouraged what is now recognized as a pop culture practice known as "flexisexual," which is described as females who simply like to play sexually with women, though they do not identify themselves as lesbian or bisexual.

Just let the goddess known as Oprah bestow her blessings on a book and overnight it becomes a best-seller. If the cultural deity known as Lady GaGa deems a lifestyle to be legitimate, her followers will worship her decree as divine truth.

Oh please. It seems American TV is only airing 23 hours of Oscar pre-coverage on this Sunday. That is such pop culture restraint.

Though we really have to wonder why Mr. Boggs is even trying to delegitimize paparazzo, folks named Alejandro, or people who sometimes wear poker faces. At least that's what we think he's delegitimizing, considering that while we've heard Lady Gaga talk lots about the span of sexual orientations that make up the world's spectrum of benign normalcy, the aforementioned are the only three actual "lifestyle choices" to which we've really ever heard her lend a tuneful decree.
