Entertainer of the Year, Person of the Year, and Pornography


The ‘entertainer of the year’ was announced, and she only was one vote ahead of a celebrity who catapulted to fame for her lewd and pornographic public behavior:

December 2013

LOS ANGELES –  The battle for AP entertainer of the year came down to the Girl on Fire and the Queen of Twerk.

Jennifer Lawrence edged out Miley Cyrus by one vote in The Associated Press’ annual survey of its newspaper and broadcast members and subscribers for Entertainer of the Year.  http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/12/23/jennifer-lawrence-tops-miley-cyrus-netflix-for-ap-entertainer-year-title/

Admit it: Miley Cyrus won 2013

December 23, 2013

Miley Cyrus

Cyrus may not have been named Time’s Person of the Year, but for a minute there it seemed possible.

At one point Cyrus was leading in an online poll for the coveted title, but ultimately the magazine’s editors chose Pope Francis (thank God, right?). Yet even without the honor, it’s hard to dispute the obvious: Cyrus kind of owned 2013.

Her scantily clad performance with singer Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in August had everyone talking, and spawned everything from infographics to Halloween costumes.

“You can call Miley Cyrus a lot of things after her bizarre 2013, but poor, uneventful and un-newsworthy aren’t some of them,” wrote Scott Davis for Forbes. “In one of the most calculated exercises in Marketing 101, Cyrus schooled major brands by understanding that it is not just about becoming the dialog, but orchestrating it and the ecosystem that surrounds it.”  http://www.cnn.com/2013/12/20/showbiz/celebrity-news-gossip/winners-and-losers-2013/

While Pope Francis was named person of the year for 2013 by Time (see Time names Pope Francis ‘Person of the Year’), and Jennifer Lawrence is famous for her acting, Miley Cyrus is famous for her version of pornography.  Sadly, she correctly calculated that moral standards had dropped so much that if she feigned sex while scantily clothed that the media would cover her, promote her, and make her more famous.

Miley Cyrus and the people who promote her behavior should be ashamed.  The Bible tells of a time like this:

15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination?
No! They were not at all ashamed;
Nor did they know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
At the time I punish them,
They shall be cast down,” says the Lord. (Jeremiah 6:15)

The trend for increased public acceptance of pornography in Western societies is increasing.  Not only will those who actually participate and promote pornography pay a price, society will as well:

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:18-32)

Pornography is not harmless.  Miley Cyrus publicly dishonored her body with her most famous performance.

(This is part of what is termed ‘soft pornography’ as there is no actual sex occurring–it is just intentionally lust provoking.)

More and more female celebrities have decided that wearing less and/or publicly looking they are participating in or enjoying simulated sex is a way to gain publicity (some male celebrities have also followed this trend)–and Miley Cyrus is one of them.  She should not be commended, her behavior should be condemned.
