Dobson asked: “Parents, are you content to allow your children to be swept into this abyss? How many of you sat open-eyed and close-mouthed as your children partook of this sex-saturated show? How many of you are allowing your children to adopt an unhealthy and dishonoring view of women and sexuality? The Bible proclaims that we are fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s image, created for relationship with our Creator. That message isn’t coming from our society… is it coming from you?” Dobson challenged.
(WND) Evangelical Christian leader James Dobson says it’s time for parents to stand up against the kind of sleaze displayed during the Super Bowl halftime show.
Known for his books on parenting, he noted the reaction has been relatively subdued, calling it “the Super Bowl shoulder shrug.”
“On Sunday, Fox Sports and the NFL offered up a sexual smorgasbord, and the halftime show was the main course,” said Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, the James Dobson Family Institute and Family Talk.
“In the last two days, I’ve seen outrage from a few select commentators and Christians. But overwhelmingly, I’ve witnessed the Super Bowl shoulder shrug. Responses range from the timid justification, ‘it wasn’t that bad,’ to the defiant proclamation, ‘it’s a celebration of Latino culture,'” he wrote.
