Woolite TV Commercial

I watched the new Woolite Commercial a few days ago .
 Frankly, I was disturbed.
You may be asking, "Why is she making such a big deal about a commercial? "

As a Christian Parent, I like to monitor what my children are exposed to.
 I am so glad that my 5 year old did not see  this commercial.
I guess it was directed by Rob Zombie. I kept thinking to myself, did I just see that ?

I even looked it up on youtube to double check my shock factor.
Yep, I really saw it and yep its disturbing.

I kept asking myself, why would a laundry detergent use snippets of a horror movie as advertisement for their product?

Here is my opinion, some of you may not like it but here it goes.

In my opinion, Mainstream media is obsessed with violence and violence sells.
But at what price?
This is another way that  the innocence of our youth is stolen, through violence and desensitization.
So, If your sitting there watching TV and something tugs at your spirit and makes you think:
 "Hey this is not good" then it probably is not, turn the channel even if it is a commercial.
The same thing goes for all those viagra and viagra like commercials.
Really, why should I have to explain to my toddler what it is.
So my suggestion again, turn the tv off or change the channel.

“But remember that the temptations that come into your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can't stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it.”
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NLT) 
Ok, I am done with my rant now-lol

P.s. This is just my opinion.
