My beef with malls: The intentional destruction of souls via consumerism.

Everything a kid needs to have his or her soul polluted and destroyed is for sale in every mall in North America. None of the contents are spiritually necessary. None.

We are called to detach. What message do we send our kids if the mall is a place of family "tradition"?

Just look at the intentional sensuality on the windows of any clothing store geared at teens. Funny thing - parents shop there, as well.

uh huh...

The only stores that are typically not good for kids to view are Hot Topic and the other one like it.  The rest are pretty benign generally.

As for everything they need to pollute their souls...I'd be willing to bet good money is right in the home...even the purged home of a nut case.


Malls do not beget consumerism...bad parenting does.  Shops provide services that you can use...that's it, and yes, each one would rather you shop at their store...that's why they advertise...and if you want to buy more, they'd be glad to accommodate you.  Every time you make purchases you are actually doing a good thing in helping maintain the employment of others...so really by buying a lot for the right reasons you can consider yourself a really good Christian as long as you are not over spending and cutting into your 401K and your kids college fund and food allotment.
