A Voice in the
This, folks, is likely the shortest 'commentary' you will ever read here; and perhaps the space shouldn't be wasted? But a concise point needs to be made...
Everybody is up-in-arms about Janet Jackson becoming 'uncovered' during the recent Super Bowl half-time show, when her male stage partner grabbed a part of her 'costume' and ripped it off ("accidentally", of course!), leaving her exposed.

Oh! Those things are OK! you say? Then, to uncover Janet Jackson was also OK! And let's everybody stop complaining, already! And just admit to having enjoyed what you saw!
No, don't complain at me for saying this! Let's make up our societal collective minds! If one is wrong, so is the other. If the other is OK, then so also is the one. There is no difference amongst them! What's the difference between bump-n-grind with bottoms exposed, or tops exposed? It's all the same thing!
You don't like my blunt terminology in 'polite' and 'christian' setting? Well... 'just saying it like it is.
Here is how Jesus addressed the hypocrisy regarding nitpicking degrees of holiness....
