Dear Dr. Moore,
Like you, I am a fan of country music. I listen to our local country music radio station in the car, and have for as long as I can remember. I'm a mother now, though, and I now drive around with my infant son in the back seat. I am aware more than ever of the less than moral aspects of country music.
Now, I grew up (like you did, from what I understand) listening to country music, so I know that, in and of itself, it's not going to drive someone to the Honky-Tonks or the divorce courts. But it's made me think. Should I give up my music altogether, listen to it only alone when my baby's not around, or just keep listening, like my parents did? What's the ethical thing to do?
