RE: Commentary: Why you shouldn’t be outraged by the Super Bowl halftime show

I strongly disagree with Ms. McPherson that Christians “shouldn’t be outraged” by the depraved, pornographic Super Bowl halftime show.

Public opinion does have an effect on society. The ungodly always get their way today because they speak up loudly when they are offended, while God’s people remain timid and silent and accept any and all abuse heaped on them by Hollywood.

Hollywood corrupts the entire world with their pornography and moral sewage, and Christians still pay to see their destructive movies.

There was a time in the United States when movies and entertainment would not have dared show such promiscuous behavior to American audiences because of the strong Christian voice. We have been losing the cultural war largely because Christians have not bothered to raise their voices and object to the moral filth heaped upon them and their families.

Ms. McPherson seems happy to accept this filth heaped upon us and America’s children and is advising us not to protest. I consider her attitude as the cause that worse filth is heaped upon us.

Christians are supposed to be the moral conscience of the world, the “salt” and “light” that attempts to preserve society and resist corruption. Silence is agreement with corruption.

Christians should respond to the “Super Bowl Porn Show” according to the Bible, not Ms. McPherson’s accepting and apathetic advice.

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes” (Psalms 101:3).

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful” (Psalms 1:1).
