Here are two articles that could be excellent springboards for discussion with your teens – particularly teen girls. The first is about a model who stopped modeling lingerie for Victoria Secret because it didn’t “mesh with her Christian values.” The second is a posting regarding Nicki Minaj’s performance at the Grammy’s – an assault on our Catholic Faith.
There was something morally redeeming about the Grammy’s this year, however. The host, rapper LL Cool J, when speaking about Whitney Houston’s death, said that he couldn’t think of anything more appropriate to the moment than to ask everyone to bow their heads in a moment of silent PRAYER. He didn’t ask for a moment of silence – but a moment of silent PRAYER. It was awesome, as the cameras panned the audience to see most in attendance with their heads bowed.
