Idol Worshipping

I may be overreacting, but it troubles me when I see all the talk about "idol-worshipping" in American Idol. I know, it's just a singing contest, but when a tween girl is interviewed on the Today show in a segment called "Idol Worshipper," it gives me pause. Are we becoming comfortable with idol worship? Do we even laugh or think it funny to use this title in such a clever way? Have we lost or are we losing the seriousness of that accusation?

Beside the fact that I loathe the show in general, I just think its a bit dangerous to celebrate idol worship.

Thank you for your support. I do wish though that you would make yourself known. I had some doubts about whether or not to post this, but I do appreciate your encouragement, even if anonymously.
