So many storylines that went into the NFL championship game last night: from two brothers coaching against each other to a first year starting quarterback versus one who has been dogged by skeptics of his ability to win 'the big one,' to the 'gay bowl'(a Ravens player wanting to use his platform to advance gay marriage versus a 49ers player who doesn't think homosexual practicing men would be very welcome in an NFL locker room).

But even though the game turned out to be a good one, it's hard to say that anything should have drawn more attention than the skank-fest at halftime. Regardless of whether I'm accused of sounding like a prude, I'm a father of two little girls now, and the perspective that brings makes me not giving a flying flip about being called as much.

What's amazing to me is that Beyonce was just featured in an interview with GQ Magazine (where she appeared half naked on the cover) in which she complained that men got to define what "sexy" is, going on a female empowerment kick that was as fake as it was obnoxious. Call her Gloria Steinem or Betty Friedan with no clothes. Sorry, but getting naked for a men's mag in order to gain attention doesn't lend itself to a platform for advancing the higher, purer ideals of femininity.

And based on last night's disgusting display of overt sexuality masking itself as some form of entertainment, anyone who would look to Beyonce Knowles Z (I'm assuming that's her last name since she married Jay-Z) for tips on femininity should have her head examined. It makes me wonder if Beyonce's biggest fans, Barack and Michelle Obama, invited the First Daughters in to watch the exhibition? I wonder if they were impressed. Is that the kind of behavior they want to see their daughters perform for money? "Hey Sasha, hey Malia, come watch Auntie Bey do a nationally televised version of Kitty McPeppermint's routine at the local Hip Hugger. That could be you someday!"
And does all this depravity have an effect? You bet it does. Contrary to what the cultural elites will tell you, the proliferation of pornography in our country is not a celebration of free speech. And the peddling of adult entertainment to the masses is not entertainment, nor is it anything remotely close to being "adult." It's a surrender to the most infantile and juvenile lusts and urges of our depraved nature. It's licentiousness - the abuse of liberty.

The embrace and promotion of such evil by the left is yet another example of their antipathy for our founding values. It was George Washington himself who urged Congress in his First Annual Address to encourage the people, "to discriminate the spirit of liberty from that of licentiousness -- cherishing the first, avoiding the last." Last night was another demonstration that American society has inverted that Washingtonian principle.

The Proverbs tell us, "Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion."

Frankly when it comes to Beyonce, I've never found her freakish gyrations and on-stage epileptic seizures all that attractive. Call me crazy, but full body dry heaves don't turn me on. But somehow, some way, she has become this generation's icon of sex appeal. Which means that a new generation of young American girls don't see the pig's snout when they watch the Super Bowl halftime show. Devastatingly, they see what our culture defines as beauty.

Beyonce wasn't portraying beauty last night. She was portraying a woman with no discretion who feels she must degrade her body in order to gain fame, money and the attention of unprincipled men. Call me a prude for thinking that my little girls can aspire to more than that, and that our society is stronger when women aren't inspired to let men objectify them for their exposed body parts. But watching the perverse celebration of decadence last night, I realized that this is more than just a country that's at stake. It's the condition of our very souls.

I posted this yesterday and won't do so again after this, but the "sexual revolution" more and more appears to have been planned, and it's been so deadly to so many.(Anyone hear Rush Limbaugh talking today about the Indiana University study which says "Porn exposure makes heterosexual men more likely to support same-sex marriage?") I always used to snicker when someone would say, "Aw, that's a communist (now "marxist") plot". Sadly, with the success they've apparently had, not anymore:

From "(the 45) Goals of Communism", presented in 1963 before the U.S. Congress by Rep. A.W. Herlong (D-FL), at the behest of publisher Patricia Nordmann of The DeLand Courier. Ms. Nordmann obtained the goals from W. Cleon Skousen's "The Naked Communist":

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

...

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

..this reminds me of what many might say was the second most memorable scene in 1990's "Goodfellas", when (after popping his mouth waaaaay off) Billy Batts got inebriated as Robert DeNiro quietly conversed with him one-on-one until Joe Pesci came up behind him and started pistol-whipping him to death (as DeNiro's character first held then started kicking "Billy" for good measure). He was having the time of his short, post-incarceration life when reality came and beat, then stabbed and shot him.

So much of our nation was allowed to get drunk on our own decadence (me included, for awhile), and a lot of lives have been lost as a result. When the author of this article mentioned "pornography" I thought of a Rolling Stone article on John C. Holmes (google-able under "The Devil and John Holmes") written a year after he died of AIDS-related causes. Holmes was the most recognizable...face...in porn in the 70s and 80s.

And he had an 80% self-inflicted horrible life, culminating in nearly being an accessory to four counts of murder. Now Linda Lovelace (she who was filmed with a german shepherd one time, for our and her husband's pleasure, of course), also deceased, has her bio out there now...she and Holmes each were extensively prostituted, among other things. And these were the superstars not the ones earning $150 per film. Porn's not the only component of the sexual revolution, but it was part of and flourished in the same.

Thing was, America was no "Billy Batts". I'd dare say we did far more good for the world than the sexual revolution and its proponents did evil against us...but it qualified us to have a target on our back in this fallen world. And now those we have cozied up to are grabbing our necks in a chokehold on one side, smashing us upside the face on the other, as the tiny champagne bubbles start popping beside our suddenly wide eyes.
