Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
This week Facebook has been flooded with controversy; from a certain CEO to Angelina Jolie. Why are we so caught up in this? All of this nonsense.
I won’t even name the CEO or his company. I refuse to give his comments or his sexually immoral advertisements and marketing system any more publicity. His comments were not nice but were they really all that surprising? I don’t shop there because I’m a fat girl. When I was thin I didn’t cross the threshold of that store. I don’t agree with the moral compass of this company and that’s enough to keep me out of the store.
The best thing we can do is to stop talking about him or his company. Stop handing over the mass media and the internet to this man. Don’t allow your children to shop there or wear his clothes. When their commercials come on the television, if you don’t already do this, change the channel or turn it off. Stop it!
Pray for his heart to be changed. That he would see how the sexual exploitation of young people to garner sales, is wrong. That is our very best defense.
Please reconsider sharing the video that is going around of the young man passing out the brand’s clothing to the homeless. Exploiting the homeless to make a point is wrong.
Can I ask why we are so concerned with Angelina’s breasts? Seriously. They belong to her body. She had an 87% chance of breast cancer. If my own risk were this high, I would probably do the same and it’s really no one’s business. I doubt very much that she went into it without a lot of thought and consideration. She has six children to consider. And again, it’s absolutely none of our business! Stop it!
Let’s rise above the nonsense and stop giving attention to those who don’t deserve it or need it. Stop stirring the pot.
