John Stonestreet suggests that Miley Cyrus may have pushed the envelope too far, even for our hypersexualized American Culture. He writes:
It’s too soon to call it a “reformation of manners” but a backlash to what one recent author called our cultural vulgarity is already asserting itself—not via the boycotts of angry culture warriors but by some of the unlikeliest cultural allies in politics, the media, and the music industry. For example, several celebrities have spoken out who’ve been repulsed by the shameless pornification of “entertainers” such as Miley Cyrus…
Now, many of these new allies have little on which to base their revulsion of the new vulgarity other than their feelings. They know it’s destructive and hurtful to women, children, and families, but they don’t know why. And that’s where Christians can step in with a little gentle teaching about worldview. We might even be surprised at their response.
I am not sanguine that our culture has reached a limit to its tolerance of moral decay. But I agree that Christians certainly do have an opportunity to bear witness to those whose consciences are pricked by the darkness.
