Puritan Board Senior
At the risk of going off topic, I see things from the perspective of being 68 years old. Growing up in the USA of the 1950s/'60s it was a different culture. A nation on basically on the same page with Judeo-Christian values. Of course since the fall sin has always been with us, and much of this now 'in your face' behavior was always there, but behind closed doors. This is a different culture than that which I grew up in and that is evident for those old enough to remember those days.I have small kids so I know a LOT of animation.
Other than animation, I do enjoy movies, and yes, I do agree with you about the shift in popular culture. Even the children's movies are following this trend with the defiant female hero (Pocahontas, Mulan, Little Mermaid, Tangled, etc). But at the same time I do not believe this is necessarily a new trend in sins of the heart - just new manifestations of the same depravity. It has always been there - these stories are old fables. Sin came into the world fully grown. Humanity just shifts from hypocrisy to open sins and back again.
