What is this? Where is it from?WTF indeed!
1. I don't know what you saw, but it looked to me like a 1980's era cartoon about adultery, audience unclear. 2. Youtube, by way of another blog that was just as confused as I am. CC
Let me guess ... produced by a conservative Christian ministry.I can just imagine the kids watching this, and then asking: "Mommy, what's adultery?" Not to mention the oversimplification that it's all about giving in to temptation by an attractive stranger.Ironically reminds me of an anecdote from a pagan polyamorist. She was resting after participating at a Parliament of World Religions meeting, when a reporter asked her what modern pagans thought about adultery. She responded: "I believe in keeping my promises." And the reporter interpreted that to mean she believed in strict monogamy, instead of seeing that "keeping promises" can be less absolutist than that.
Hey, at least they weren't singing vegetables.
Okay is it just me or is it only the "lady"-animals who are straying or tempting men to stray?
Aw c'mon Joel.I have a soft spot for singing vegetables.Come to think of it. . .Note the absence of senator's sons and former UUA presidents.
It's from Kingdom Chums: The Original Top Ten from 1992. This seems to be a made for tv moved based on an ABC series, Kingdom Chums: Little David Adventures which aired mid 80's. Now I want to go out and watch the one on murder.
I keep being tempted, but I somehow cannot bring myself to......Watch it that is.
Does "the original top ten" refer to the ten commandments? If so, and they were doing all ten, they could hardly leave out adultery, even if the kiddies didn't know what they were talking about. Though kids certainly understand betrayal and breaking promises.
@kimc: Agreed if you cover the Ten Commandments, you can't leave out adultery. The question is how to cover it in an age-appropriate manner, and what core values that commandment is based upon. "Be loyal," the video says -- but what happens when your partner isn't loyal to you, or is abusive? I think the adultery commandment is about keeping promises, not merely about exclusivity, but about how people should treat one another.
Robin, CC was making a pun about how Tiger Woods is named "Tiger." The only people in the video are little children.
This isn't the first time that I've made a joke in a post and Robin has made a similar joke in the comments as if I hadn't said the same thing in the post. I don't understand it, but it is just his sense of humor. CC
