Jimmy Kimmel's Millstone

It's getting to the point where I can't watch the evening news without having my blood pressure rise by 30 points, followed by an hour spent in high dudgeon. Tonight's offender is "comedian" Jimmy Kimmel, who was spotlighted briefly on tonight's Special Report with Bret Baier on Fox News Channel.

A brief clip was shown showing a little boy who could not have been more than eight or nine years old. He was ostensibly at the White House where Michelle Obama was hosting a large group of children, no doubt for a tour.

Now, I am certain that this particular segment was taped by Kimmel and inserted into the released clip from the White House for comedic purposes, and didn't really happen at the event. But what was said out of the mouth of the child has me really steamed.

In essence, Mrs. Obama asked the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up. This little towheaded tyke spoke up and said that he wanted to be a Secret Service agent so he could score hookers for $30. No doubt this generated plenty of guffaws from the young skulls full of mush who get their jollies on smutty humor, but this isn't funny.

Let me say it again. Scripting a little boy saying he wanted to grow up so he could buy cheap hookers IS NOT FUNNY. It is nothing less than the corruption of a young mind likely innocent of this kind of garbage. I have no idea of what Jimmy Kimmel's religious beliefs are, but the warning of the Lord ought to be taken seriously by those who think it's the height of hilarity to corrupt a kid and corrupt his speech.

Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea (Mark 9:42).
