We are living in a permissive society; emails & letters.

IN comment on the Charlie Sheen saga and the recent death of actress Jane Russell.

Today we are living in a sexually permissive society that worships at the feet of behavioural misfits like Charlie Sheen. All the media outlets have been clamouring around Sheen waiting for him to self destruct while trying to satisfy the insatiable appetites of a wanton and degenerate public.

It is ironic that Charlie's father Martin took the name "Sheen" from the great American moral commentator and catholic bishop Fulton J. Sheen. This irony is reflected in the troubling shift of media bias in the past 50 years from those who would save the world to those who would turn it into a Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

When Jane Russell died last week, it was widely reported that the actress was nay but a timeless beauty and a talented actress. Few in the media dared to say that, despite her sex symbol image, she was a rare defender of Christian and Republican values.

Having undergone a botched abortion at age 18, Russell became a staunch pro-life advocate. She also founded the World Adoption International Fund in 1955.

Hers is story of beauty, integrity and love. But what does the media prefer to dwell on? Charlie Sheen, his drugs and his porn gal pals. And they wonder why Western civilisation is morally bankrupt.
