Every once in a while I have to express my convictions and here is one of them.
This year the theme of the Miss USA Pageant is “Waking Up In Vegas” with the promo pictures to go with them of the contestants partially dressed, most in lingerie. After years of making it a tradition of watching the Miss USA Pageant please join with me in boycotting this years show, put on by Donald Trump and NBC/Universal.
You have joined with me in the past over Abercrombie and Fitch’s displays in stores and magazine ads that have quickly been taken down. Your opinion can make a difference.
I hope you will join with me this time too.
Our Daughters and Grand Daughters deserve better. Christians and young women in general in these pageants are being asked to compromise themselves regarding modesty of any kind. This morning I listened to the President of this years Pageant on the Today Show speaking to Matt Lauer say; Yes, it is a marketing ploy, that seems to be working. Please don’t let it work in your home this Sunday.
Quoting from a recent interview with Raquel Welch “Seriously, folks, if an aging sex symbol like me starts waving the red flag of caution over how low moral standards have plummeted, you know it’s gotta be pretty bad” end quote.
Yes, Raquel…I agree it’s gotten pretty bad!
God bless you my friends – Leesa
