He said he liked their *comedy.*<quoted text>
Hey , who am I to judge the choices you make or what your personal preferences are?
When one is young and foolish one can make choices based on the
ways of the world and find them to be pleasureable and rewarding.
Based on one's likes , dislikes and who or what one permits to guide one's moral conduct and behaviour will ultimately determine
The comedians in question , whom you so admire carried a lot of unhealthy baggage.
Rodney Dangerfield ,Abused drugs ,alcohol and although married , spent most of his time with prostitutes .Family life was a disaster.
George Carlin , abused drugs and alcohol . His wife was also an alcoholic.
In her book , his daughter decribes having to try and mediate the drug and alcohol induced fights between her parents .
She had a totally disastrous childhood.
Having my own family , I would not want my daughter to be associated in any way shape or form with those types of personalities.
Nor would I want my son to emulate their lifestyle.
I can assure you that they would never be my preference , they are to be pitied rather than admired.
It all boils down to making the correct moral choice , all depending on your moral code.
An entertainer is not your friend.
You don't have to admire their personal life in order to be entertained by them.
Do you check to see if a singer is "moral" before you enjoy the song they are singing...or determine if an actor is "righteous" before you like a movie they were in?
