Trying to make sense of Super Bowl 54 halftime “entertainment”.
Because of the value of all human life, because of my view of women inspired by God’s Word, because I have worked in human trafficking prevention and recovery and because I have seen the entry doors to brothels with children and young slaves inviting perpetrators of evil to enter in, because I know that these invitations lead to the decay and destruction of dignity, equality, honor, respect and even perceptions of the value of an individuals life; I am appalled by the halftime show of Super Bowl 54.
Last night, for the little I watched, I was peering at the “designed to entice entry to the brothel” value of women and young (very young) girls. I have seen where this goes and it is destructive to life. It certainly debases women and emboldens an objectifying view of all women.
How many men watching in bars, homes and even in their churches last night, were pushed toward lustful thoughts? How many let those thoughts run unchecked?
It hurt my heart to see it elevated as “entertainment”.
Ephesians 5:3 my dear friends is so fitting.
Dads. Next time such a display comes to your TV take your sons and daughters from the room.
Dads. Tell the NFL, and Fox Sports you would not want your daughters on that stage (even if they were paid huge amounts of money – does the dignity of your wife or daughter have a price tag?). You don’t want them aspiring to be stars of openly suggestive behavior. That is well below the design of God for women. And this is happening at a time when there is acute awareness in the US thru #metoo.
Dads, what is your life displaying to your children?
Last night, I had to get up and do dishes. My heart aches for the lost view and value of purity in the world today.
Dads, lead the charge to restore it in your home.
