The Entertainment Craze
Elizabeth Taylor, An Icon
John W. Ritenbaugh
Commentary; #1038c; 10 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, reflecting on the recent death of Elizabeth Taylor, opined that, although she may have been considered a star, her life was severely lacking in many ways. With her hopelessly warped personality, she seemed driven by hedonistic sexual conquests. Although married eight times, she was unable to make a marriage work, while encouraging homosexual and other perverted lifestyles. Elizabeth Taylor exemplified the hedonistic, pleasure-mad lifestyle that destroyed the ancient Roman Empire. Happiness in Rome, like happiness in modern Israel, seems to derive from sporting events like the World Series, Superbowl, and other such events. The Bread and Circuses leading to the demise of ancient Rome may foreshadow grave consequences for modern Israel's hedonistic bent.
