The glimmer and glam is what draws in, the thoughts of a modern day Cinderella, or for you Jerry Lewis fans Cinderfella. The television is filled with these glamorous stars selling us their music, dvds, movie tickets various products they endorse (at a price) etc.
Growing up in the 1980s, I remember the controversies of bands like Twisted Sister, and Slayer. They scared the public with their imagery in their videos and tv appearances. And in today's culture we are desensitized and this has come from a progression that has spanned years.
Many of us can watch a Elvis Presley youtube video and say, "man that is mild", we can watch Led Zeppelin's movie The Song Remains The Same which freaked me out at the age of 16 when I was an unbeliever in even the greek Jesus. The opening scene with the Pig masks screamed of paganism, as well as Jimmy Page climbing the mountain to see Father Time during the song Dazed and Confused. Elvis Presley was very very mild compared to Zepp.
The scary vampire and monster movies then became satire because of people like Mel Brooks, thus making Bella Legosi seem mild because Frankenstein, Dracula, and others were then not really scary. As a matter of fact, it even made it's way to cartoons in the late 80s filled with occult symbolism and not a singe eye was batted. Look at this video of the introduction of a popular Nickelodeon cartoon in 1988 called Count Duckula.
In the 90s there was debate over what had happened to television, up until that time the most controversial scene in any TV show was this one from Little House on the Prairie where Melissa Gilbert used her bra like a slingshot. But the 90s began a new hour in television with a sitcom called Murphy Brown, Murphy Brown in one season decided she wanted to have a baby out of wedlock and the nation was horrified that this behavior was glorified. (Video Below)
This then became the norm in the 90s, every sitcom on television copied the Murphy Brown formula because it was a controversial and yet popular formula. Then it became accepted. We also became accustomed to pagan gods on television being displayed as heroes and modern romantic Don Quixote. The video below is the intro of a famous television show from 1998-1999 staring Jeremy Piven and Paula Marshell called Cupid. Now in this tv show Jeremy Piven plays Trevor Hale, a man who claims to be Cupid, this TV was later resurrected in 2008-2009 with a different cast. but same premise, you wanna find love? Then rely on the greek god Cupid (video below)
In Ezekiel 8, YHWH keeps saying, "now I will show you even greater abominations than this". Lets fast forward to this month February of 2012, and lets revisit Madonna and some of her friends, and the talk of the music industry, and not a peep from Christiandom about these abominations.
