“Hey, Mom!” her fifteen-year daughter yelled from upstairs. “Do you know where my new jeans are?”
She quickly turned down the volume of the radio, along with the channel. “No! I don’t!” she responded.
Her daughter, Jeanine, descended the stairs. “Well, since I cannot find them, I will just wear this!! Jeanine informed.
“Oh, no you won’t, young lady!”
“Mom, do we have to go through this again? This is the 2000’s, not the sixties. You had your fun, why can’t I have mine? You put everything down that I like, especially my music!”
“Well, Jeanine, the music back when I was growing up was different! It was not offensive to God!”
“Mom, it was just as immoral as ours is. ‘Me and Mrs. Jones? We got a thing going on?’ And what about ‘Having My Baby?’ and all of those other terrible songs? God wasn’t being glorified through that music, either!”
“Go back upstairs and take that outfit off, Jeanine, and turn off that loud, disgusting music!” Jeanine stomped back upstairs and slammed her bedroom door.
Her mom, with low volume, turned the radio station back on. And it was just in time. One of her favorites was playing, “It’s your thing, do what you wanna do; I can’t tell you who to sock it to." She sighed as she sipped her coffee. “Now, that’s good music,” she thought.
“Jeanine,” she yelled, “I told you to turn off that immoral music!”
