“Sex sells” is a marketing model used to promote products, services, and and many other consumables. Commercials and programming on television, movies, and the internet often depict women in provocative attire and mannerisms to attract their audience to a targeted product. We, as consumers, have been buying into this sex-driven marketing ploy for decades.
It is time we, as Christians, demand a cultural clean-up. Our sex-induced culture has hurt marriages, families and children. It has impacted our Catholic clergy and hurt the Church. If we want to see a change in this marketing gimmick, we must demand it with our actions.
We are Catholic. We must stop supporting programming, products, and services that do not adhere to Catholic teaching. If it means that we stop going to the movies or watching popular programming on television then so be it. It is always best to follow the teachings of the Church rather than exposing ourselves and our families to programming that offends Our Lord.
Ponder: What programming do you currently watch that may be offensive to Our Lord?
Reflect: 1 Thes 4:3-8
Pray: Lord, please help me keep a pure mind, body, and spirit.
