Fellow gardeners can relate – pull one weed and you turn around and another has taken its place. It’s that way in this ministry as well. We can hardly breathe a sigh of satisfaction at the cancellation of the offensive “GCB” before turning to face the next disgusting show. While “GCB” has withered and died, another weed in ABC’s cesspool of a garden has taken root and is flourishing – the show “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23,” now renewed for another season.
This week’s episode was the worst since the show premiered last month – and that’s saying a lot! Especially since the opening scene of the very first episode had one female character (Chloe) having sex with her roommate June’s fiancé on top of a birthday cake.
Hardcore advertiser, Darden Restaurants (Olive Garden, Red Lobster) advertised again for the third straight week. Other returning advertisers include Kraft, Volkswagen, Hyundai, and AT&T. New advertisers include “family” restaurant McDonald’s, as well as Sealy Mattress, Honda, and Esteé Lauder.

The premise of “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23” centers upon June, a “good,” wholesome, Midwestern girl moving to New York and rooming with Chloe, a jaded, immoral New Yorker. Chloe has decided to “educate” naïve June, and each episode depicts June compromising her values. This episode has Chloe determined to “introduce” June to casual sex.
When June sees an attractive guy, but doesn’t consider him “husband material,” Chloe tells her: “Just have casual sex. It’s great! … Some guys are just for sex.” She tells her, “It’s just sex, it’s no big deal.”
Later as June goes out with the guy, Chloe reminds her: “Remember it’s not a date, its casual sex.”
The next scene shows June in bed with this virtual stranger, proud of herself for engaging in illicit, casual sex. June goes home and excitedly tells Chloe: “I had casual sex!” As Chloe congratulates her, June says, “It was great!! You were right!”
I just wanted to weep at this scene. How many young girls (and guys) watching this show are picking up that message – “It’s just sex, it’s no big deal.”
However, it is a big deal! Young people are trading what should be an intimate expression of love and commitment designed by God to be shared within marriage, for a selfish, meaningless act. And, sadly, they don’t even know what they’re losing. What they’re gaining, however, are the destructive emotional, physical, and spiritual consequences that are bound to follow.
The last several years we have promoted the outstanding DVD, “Sex Has a Price Tag” by the compelling abstinence speaker, Pam Stenzel. Pam has brought her powerful message to schools and audiences all over the world and we have distributed thousands of her DVDs and have also brought her to our area to speak at several schools and events. I recall an example Pam gave, equating casual sex to sticking a piece of tape on a person’s arm, and then ripping it off and placing it on another and then another and another. After a while the tape no longer sticks. It has lost its purpose and meaning – just like with casual sex. And each time, a person leaves a little piece of themselves behind with each person they give themselves to.
An updated edition of “Sex Has a Price Tag” is now released under the new name: “The High Cost of Free Love.” The content is very similar and just as powerful as the original DVD. Click here to order Pam Stenzel’s powerful faith-based DVD “The High Cost of Free Love” (formerly Sex Has a Price Tag) or the public school version, Sex Still Has a Price Tag.
However, “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23” doesn’t tell the viewers the truth about the consequences of “free love,” instead the show perpetuates the destructive lie that “it’s just sex, it’s no big deal.”
If this storyline wasn’t enough, the episode doesn’t stop there with its offensive, degrading content. The following demonstrates how truly perverse this show is. The crude themes include June shown in the bathtub supposedly “pleasuring” herself. Chloe tells her: “that was God talking directly to your body.” Also included was a female pastor who glowingly talked about a previous one night stand she had with a stranger. The female pastor also watched a porno sex tape of Chloe’s and thanked her for the sex tips she got from it. The pastor then distributed the porn, selling it for thousands of dollars. Later Chloe, June, and other friends sit around to watch and analyze the sex tape.
This is the sickening content supported by the advertising dollars of McDonald’s, Olive Garden, Kraft, Esteé Lauder, AT&T, Sealy Mattress, Honda, Volkswagen, and others.
