I was with a church group watching this filth. I can sum up my feelings in one word: disappointed. Before Sunday, I believed that the church is the church and the world is the world and you can't expect much from the world in terms of visible morality. Now, I'm wondering just what the church can and should do to keep this garbage from happening again. I know I probably sound like an angry New Yorker on 9-12-01, but seriously, I feel like I've been assaulted by a cunning, sinister, and deceptive army of people and I'm getting a little tired of it. I know I can exercise my right to change the channel any time I want, but come on, this is the Super Bowl. This is supposed to be the best few hours of entertainment in the whole year. Is this our best? How does that affect our witness as a supposedly Christian nation? Or at least a moral one? We have told the world that we are morally bankrupt, socially degenerate, reprobate, decadent, self-loathing, opulent and apathetic. If that had been done in a public area near children, the culprits would be arrested immediately for public indecency and exposing one's self in front of children. Kids were watching. Millions of them.
Now that I think about it, MTV, the performers and producers of that show should be investigated, arrested and tried for lewd behavior. There's the first amendment, and then there's criminal acts of voyeurism. Can I say it just one more time: CHILDREN WERE WATCHING! They knew this! My God, what kind of people do this?![/quote]
As I said in my previous post, at least half our church was watching it as a "family" fun night. We have been spiritually raped by MTV, CBS, and the others who promoted this filth. There is no other way to describe it.
Personally, I have a very negative opinion that anything will do any good at all. I think it is too late. It will take something really major...worse than 9-11 to wake our country up. Hopefully, I am wrong and people will rally to the cause and change things...but I doubt anything we do will help that much. Like Marc said, I do not kid myself that CBS or MTV give a hoot what I or evangelical Christians think.
For what it's worth, here is an article by AFA and a link to protest if you have the energy.
Here is the article...
Just when you think TV can't sink any lower, it does.
During the halftime program for the Super Bowl, CBS showed singer Justin Timberlake tearing off singer Janet Jackson’s top, exposing her breast.
The two singers were performing "Rock Your Body," a risqué duet to end the half time show. The final lyric of the song goes, "Going to have you naked by the end of this song."
In addition, the halftime show included:
*Janet Jackson grabbing her breasts
*Sean P. Diddy repeatedly fondling his crotch
*Simulated lesbian sex
*Jackson and Timberlake groping each other
According to the Drudge Report, top CBS executives approved the Jackson exposure prior to the game. "The decision to go forward went to the very top of the network," Drudge quoted a well-placed source in New York. Jackson and Timberlake got the ok from CBS for their performance.
In addition, an ad for Bud Lite showed a talking chimp, blatantly asking his owner "babe" if she would like to go upstairs to have sex with him.
