If we keep the Sabbath Day Holy, we are free from this exposure. The Lord is not in Sunday Sports.

I am not a football fan (remember that "fan" is short for fanatic), so I didn't see the middle aged "stars" cavorting in the stadium. However, I returned from my mission in Peru many years ago and was surprised at how much "entertainment" TV had been corrupted at that time. My personal reaction was to never buy a TV set and I have never missed it. Satan has a great hold on the people and the politicians in this country today and much of it has been achieved through the television industry. It is like inviting a porn star to live in your home and practice their shows in front of your family to have a TV set today.

I thought the halftime show was decadent!

Twitter had a number of "polls" about the halftime show - one had 73% "too sexual" - a comment from friend "exploitation of women" - had just watched Tim Ballard interview by popular host

I remember returning to the U.S in 1974 after living in Korea and having the same culture shock! And life was certainly "tamer' then. The downward incline is certainly steeper now.

In an interview a few days before the show, the two performers stated that their performances would be "empowering" and they would "spread love."

No, you are not taking things out of context and you are not out of touch with America's pop culture. I thought the half time show was vulgar and salacious. It was offensive.

You were not taking things out of context. That half time show was raunchy and awful. I only saw a few images of it but that was more than I wanted to see. The fact that so many are praising the performers is an indication of how far America has fallen.

The Super Bowl half time performance was a diabolically evil & nauseating reminder of moral decay in America. Ripening for destruction? Yes. Depicting a scene from within that ‘great & spacious building‘, porn was served to viewers on the platter of family entertainment. The ‘great fall’ of it is eminent.

I was reading an on-line newspaper. One of the pictures that accompanied an article was a still photo from the halftime show. We used to call that pornography.

I cannot believe it! I am 21 years old and I've never watched the super bowl because it's on Sundays. I just read an article my mom posted on Facebook about this! It is rediculous! I like sports. I remember going to a game at USU as a junior in high school. It was a Mutual activity and it was fun! I was with a girl my age. It's stupid that a sports game would be a chance for greedy people to go to work! What in the world is this world coming to!?

I was disgusted by the porn show at 1/2 time.
C ShieldsFebruary 4, 2020
I, like you, felt that the half time show was out of line and actually bordered 'soft porn'. And, although I am a former dancer and choreographer and truly appreciate the athletic and creative prowess and agility of the performers, it felt like the underlying motive was to be elicit (which is concerning, for many reasons). Why couldn't they have had a class act that displayed musical talent and prowess, instead? (Like they did with Sir Paul McCartney, several years ago?) Sadly, Satan's sensationalism saturates society; selling smut - (not) so smugly.

And what about the cheerleaders?
