Grammys Urge Female Celebs Not to Show Skin Tonight



The 55th Annual Grammy Awards air tonight on CBS. Very much to its credit, the network has struck a blow this year for family viewing by issuing a wardrobe advisory to female attendees encouraging them to dress more like ladies – not named Gaga – and  less like wannabe porn stars. 

“Please be sure,” the advisory stated, “that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack.” 

And this: “Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.”

Yes. That’s how detailed the advisory had to be to deter female vulgarians attending tonight’s Grammys from prancing down the red carpet – or even appearing on stage – wearing next to nothing, for all the world to see.

As a Christ follower, I’ve long been offended that the Grammys have aired on Sundays, the Lord’s Day. For only woman under demonic influence – like Mary Magdalene, from whom Christ cast out some seven demons – would display themselves in the manner of some of the women who’ve made Grammy infamy.

Like R&B artist Rihanna who, at last year’s Grammy’s, wore a black dress designed to exposing the bare sides of her breasts.

And Lady Gaga, who in 2010 performed on stage at the Grammys in a thong type costume that inadequately covered her genitalia area.

And Toni Braxton, a forerunner of Rihanna, who in 2001 wore a white dress, and absolutely nothing underneath, with cut outs in the front, back and sides.

And Jennifer Lopez, who in 2000 got the Grammys annual skin fest started, by stepping out in that notorious Versace dress that clearly revealed the under curvature of her breast, much to the cheap thrill of male oglers that attended Grammys in person and those that  watched at home.

I’m not a fan of CNN – my tastes run to FOX News – but I think Erin Burnett was right on this past Thursday when she closed her nightly CNN show by calling out Lady Gaga and other exhibitionist female celebrities.

“There certainly is a difference,” said Miss Burnett, “between sexy and sexual.”

And, I might add, women who walk with the Lord, who present their bodies each day as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, know well that difference.

Has Homosexuality Become the New Normal?


One needn’t have had “gaydar” to know that Anderson Cooper was homosexual. That’s why the significance of the CNN anchor’s declaration yesterday – “I’m gay, always have been, always will be” – is not that he made it, but that he felt so empowered to do so.

In an email to Andrew Sullivan, a fellow homosexual who authors a blog for the Daily Beast, Cooper explained that he was reminded recently “that while as a society we are moving toward greater inclusion and equality for all people, the tide of history only advances when people make themselves fully visible.”

That’s the gay strategy – to “make themselves fully visible.” As Sullivan wrote on his blog, “The visibility of gay people is one of the core means for our equality.”

That’s why gay rights activists so often state that every one of us knows someone or another who is gay.

The implication is that homosexuals constitute a sizable minority; that they deserve to be full integrated into every area of society, from the military to the Boy Scouts; that they deserve to be accorded the very same rights as heterosexuals, from marriage to adoption of children.

But homosexuals are not nearly as sizable a minority as the unsuspecting American public has been misled to believe.

Sure, most of us know someone or another who is gay. But most of us also know someone or another who is Asian.

Asians constitute a mere 5 percent of the U.S. population, which most of us would not consider sizeable. And the homosexual population is not even half that of the Asian population.

That’s not the disinformation of one of the “pastors calling for the death of gay people,” as Sullivan decried, but the fact-based conclusion of Garance Franke-Ruta, a senior editor at The Atlantic magazine.

In an article published this past spring, Franke-Ruta, who is no conservative, no evangelical Christian, pointed to an April 2011 study by the Williams Institute, a gay and lesbian think tank at UCLA, which calculated that only 1.7 percent of Americans between 18 and 44 are homosexual.

Given that data, wrote Franke-Ruta, the size of the gay population has been “massively overestimated” by members of the American public. She points to a Gallup poll last year in which those surveyed figured that gays and lesbians made up more than 25 percent of theU.S.population.

That so many Americans mistakenly believe that the homosexual population is 15 times larger than it actually is shows how successful gay rights activists have been in portraying their constituency as a sizable minority.

And they have managed to do so because of their prominence in such highly visible professions as media, entertainment and politics.

Indeed, Cooper’s acknowledgement yesterday that he is gay “and proud” was preceded several months ago by a similar announcement by fellow CNN anchor Don Lemon. And it will surprise hardly anyone when and if a former CNN anchor, currently working for a rival network, follows the lead of Lemon and Cooper.

Meanwhile, a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly featured a cover story on “The New Art of Coming Out.” It celebrates “the new casual methods celebrities are using to reveal their sexuality publicly for the first time.”

That includes such Hollywood gays as Jim Parsons, a cast member on CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” Zachary Quinto, who appeared on NBC’s “Heroes,” before moving on to such movies as Star Trek, Matt Bomer, star of USA Network’s “White Collar,” Jesse Tyler, of ABC’s “Modern Family” and Jane Lynch, of  FOX’s “Glee.”

Then there’s the political world, where homosexuality is no longer the liability with voters it once was. Indeed, the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, which makes campaign contributions to homosexual candidates throughout the country, says there are more than 1,000 open gay elected officials serving at some level or another in government.

And the gay community has a very special relationship with the Obama administration, which, according to the Victory Fund, has appointed more than 250 gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals, and transgenders to full-time and advisor positions with the executive branch, “more than all know LGBT appointments of other presidential administrations combined.”

The success of homosexuals in infiltrating the media, Hollywood and politics explains why so many Americans have been duped into believing that every fourth person is gay or lesbian or (other).

It also explains how the tiny minority has managed to advance its ungodly agenda, over the objection of the majority of Americans who continue to believe that homosexuality is a sin.
