Valentine is nothing but consumerism and cheap sex

Reader comment on item: Hating Valentine's Day

Submitted by Right! (Malaysia), Jan 19, 2009 at 22:36

How many of us have seen Sex and The City? This is the mirror image of the "liberated" woman. What liberation? Is it liberation to commit adultery under the notion of "love"? Isn't Carrie Bradshaw nothing but homebreaker by destroying Big's marriage all under the notion of "love" and we cheer for her.

Valentine is just a celebration of lust and liberated sexuality. First dinner, flowers and sex.

Valentine is simply unIslamic, unChristian, unBuddhist etc. in its hedonistic manner.
