reformed/biblical observations on Christianity and culture

Recent Post/Self-Quote from Doug Wilson:
"There is no way that young men can watch, and be entertained by, movies which include displays of nudity, steamy sex scenes, and so forth, without being aroused by them. A boy who tells his mother that he can 'handle it' is using what astute theologians in former ages used to call 'a lie'" (Future Men, pp. 141-142).

I suppose this counts for older men as well. And most women too.

And yet to see (via blog entries, etc.) what Reformed and evangelical folk are watching on a regular basis would seem betray this. Wilson's title to this entry says it all: "Kidding Yourself."
