|Our Lady, the model of purity!|
Well, I didn't watch the Superbowl or see the raunchy X-rated half-time show. Life's too short! But I saw some of the disgusting, nearly nude photos (which I won't post) and got this email today from a friend:
Did anyone have this reaction?
I normally never watch the half time show since I find it so morally offensive and suggestive. Since I am in the middle of research on porn, prostitution and human trafficking, I watched to see how bad it would be. I couldn't believe how suggestive it was.
From my research, many johns continually mention that they use porn to rev up (the pre-show) for action (the party). Once they rev up, they act out. An FBI agent who specializes in helping to stop trafficking mentioned on Covenant Eyes, that without pornography, there would be no sex trafficking.
The half- time show, in my opinion, was porn - suggestive in clothing, gyrations, rope motions suggesting bondage, right down to pole dancing - then bringing in children to participate.
Afterwards the panel of men made comments how it affected them.
If the NFL is really trying to stop trafficking, I think this type of entertainment really contributes to it, especially since this is the big event for sex trafficking of children.
Tonight, probably many children and women will be raped. Let's keep the victims in our prayers.
My thoughts, God bless.
|Our Lady of Good Success|
God disagrees! He gave us Our Lady, the model of purity and "our tainted nature's solitary boast."
I just finished the novena to Our Lady of Good Success of the Purification. We need her more than ever. The devotion to Our Lady of America also focuses on purity. What a wonderful thing to help young girls see their value mirrored in the perfect woman -- Mary. Here's a sonnet for your children to memorize. Wouldn't that be a wonderful gift to Our Lady during her month of May!
