I would think that any sitting us president would have more important national issues to handle so I would say no!!!

There are ample statutes, all they need is appropriate enforcement at local state and federal levels.

Before someone gives the pat answer that "it is your job as a parent to filter what your child sees," let me remind you that most of us don't live in a perfect world! Unless you can afford to homeschool and, better yet, live in the wilderness with no contact with the outside world, then you can't keep your kids from being exposed to it. Young girls get the all-American message loud and clear that to be beautiful is to be sexy. Raising kids is a war these days.

I notice that none of the replies acknowledge that there is an obscenity problem in American and what it consists of. It is not just foul language being second nature. It is sexual innuendo on Disney; skimpy clothing on 12 year olds; homosexual marriage; TV and movie stars posing nude like it is a goal in their careers - the list goes on and on. Bottom line - it has become impossible to protect our children's innocence in America today. Our government allows our children to be desensitized!

24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, ... in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.
25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.
26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.

(Old Testament | Exodus 20:24 - 26)

Read Genesis 9:22 - 26.

Ham looks upon his father's nakedness and is cursed to be servant to his brothers who shun pornography like the plague and are blessed.

This is how we all should approach this subject.

George Bush, as leader of one of the largest nations on earth is so naive that he says things that others have no testicular fortitude to say.

The Word of God is replete with great leaders who cause righteous things to happen.

Of course George Bush should lead the way, or be seen as a puppet to the pornographers.

Think of what happens to those who "uncover their sister's nakedness."

Melissa, Bush is the president of the ENTIRE USA, not just of those whom you consider to be born again and of whom you spiritually approve.

If there is anyone on this list who has never said something s/he shouldn't, please contact me and I'll make you one of my famous chocolate tofu strawberry (or cherry) cream pies.

This should be on the humor blog its so rediculous. I'm sure if he knew the microphones were on he wouldn't have said it. Never the less, he may have thought it. Often more gets taken care of at lunches and dinners when people are more relaxed, than at formal meetings. He let Blair know just what he thought, NO big deal!

melissa: A head of state is expected to be available to attend a service at any house of worship should the need arise. I do not think that attending the church is giving approval to it.

As for the obscenity issue, PLEASE, let's get things in perspective. We have Americans dying in Iraq. Crime is rampant in the US. People are homeless, and many cannot afford the medications they need to live a healthy life. Let him address those issues that really matter.

NO. He shouldn't take on any role that somebody else could do better. He doesn't have time, I'm sure.
---Donna2277 on 7/18/06

So the man said a no no word. What is the big deal? Do people really put him up on a pedistal and treat him like a king? I don't see how he could have a obscenity problem by saying a dirty word on tv. There are more important things going on and people are worried about P. Bush saying a cuss word? Instead of judging him, we need to be praying for him, he has ALOT on his shoulders right now, more than I would want to face.

A mind focused on flesh will manifest the deeds of the flesh, but a mind focused on the Spirit will manifest fruit.

Will you give me a break!! The man said sh--, which I'm not even sure qualifies as an "obscenity." Geesh! You KNOW you've said worse, and SO HAVE I!! Now its being made into a federal case. What is wrong with this picture. Let's get up in arms about something that matters...

I am taking a risk in offending someone on this blog, but I have to bring something up here. I saw a photo of Bush and his wife leaving an Episcopal church service in DC. Episcopal churches are the ones who ordained a homosexual bishop right? If that is OK with our president, then I wouldn't look to him for leadership on halting the spread of obscenity.
