Thank you and Dr. Lapin for calling attention to cultural dangers. I get Thought Tools and often check out your post after I finish reading your husband's emails. Long-time reader, first-time commenter. As an avid iPhone user who nonetheless believes that my phone or any other gadget I have should not dominate my activities, I have never played Angry Birds but I would recommend avoiding it just based on the title. Also, the red bird in the logo certainly looks angry. "Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil." — Psalm 37:8 I might arouse some passionate opinion here, but this is also why I have always had a negative opinion of "American Idol." (Unlike most other technology, TV does not have a home at ours, but news of popular shows often filters in.) The first of the Ten Commandments prohibits idolatry. Why watch a show that celebrates idolatry? Even if the title is tongue-in-cheek, there is probably a ring of truth to it, or else another title would have been chosen. Anyway, for believing Christians and Jews, joking about breaking God's laws is in bad taste.
