But millions still watched it, and that includes young children. What message did it send? One important question: have Americans become hopelessly desensitized?
Disgusted by the raunchy, immoral performance by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, some say we’re judging nonbelievers. Nope. They need Christ. But as Christians, we must live up to a higher standard.

It was a predictable Super Bowl halftime show that included a stage full of scantily clad women, practically non-stop exotic dancing, sexual gestures, hip thrusting, booty shaking, crotch grabbing (I’m not even exaggerating), pole dancing, songs many of us didn’t know and lyrics we couldn’t understand.
