It is mind-blowing to me that SO many people who claim to be Christian are okay with the Super Bowl half-time show, which is sponsored by Pepsi. It featured BDSM, stripper poles, extremely lewd dancing, and very minimal clothing.
As a mother with a daughter, this is concerning to me! Have we seriously become such a desensitized society that parents are okay with their little girls thinking that this is normal behavior? Do we really want our daughters believing that in order to be famous or successful, they need to dress half naked while grabbing their crotch and dancing on a pole? We are better than this!
Don't get me wrong, I like J-Lo and Shakira. They are both talented women. However, this performance was definitely out of line for a program that is supposed to be family friendly.
Christian evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham has expressed his extreme disappointment with the halftime show and the unfortunate message that it is sending our children. He said that it lacked "moral decency" and that Pepsi is showing “young girls that sexual exploitation of women is okay” and urging society to raise its standards.
I don’t expect the world to act like the church, but our country has had a sense of moral decency on prime time...
“I don’t expect the world to act like the church, but our country has had a sense of moral decency on prime time television in order to protect children,” Graham said, but he is surprised that they send such a strong message “that sexual exploitation of women is okay.”
“We see that disappearing before our eyes. It was demonstrated tonight in the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show—with millions of children watching. This exhibition was Pepsi showing young girls that sexual exploitation of women is okay,” he continued. “With the exploitation of women on the rise worldwide, instead of lowering the standard, we as a society should be raising it. I’m disappointed in Pepsi and the NFL."
Billy Graham's son had many comments of people wholeheartedly agreed with him. “Me too, it was like a porn production,” one commented. “Totally agree. Time to bring back clean acts that everyone can watch with their whole family,” another said.
The Twittersphere is also buzzing with opinions on the half-time show. Many people who state that they disagree with the performance are attacked as either prude or racist.
I made the reasonable point that Super Bowl half time shows should be appropriate for children. Lots of people disagreed. Their counterarguments seem to boil down to two points: 1) "I like naked people," and 2) "You're racist."
I find these rebuttals somehow unpersuasive.

wow! watching hypersexualized women dance around half naked during the super bowl half time show really makes me respect women more, and see them as more than their bodies #SuperBowlLIV

Them: what J.Lo did on that strip pole during the half time show was 100% disrespectful and inappropriate.
Me: agreed. Strippers don’t need back up dancers to hold them up on that pole - they can carry themselves. What an amateur. pic.twitter.com/YjUtw5lb6f

I understand that as a Christian, we can't expect the rest of the world to conform to our morals. However, this is just sad. What do you think of the performance?
Lol. This was the high-water mark, following the stripper poles, at the Super Bowl half-time show. pic.twitter.com/ObAQ8fX2qa
