The Pornification of a Generation

Kevin Scott (brother of my good friend Jake, who is the Youth Pastor at Grace Community Church in Chelmsford, MA) has written book called The Pornification of a Generation that is featured in an article in Newsweek.  Here is the first paragraph to the article…

For months, the 5-year-old had begged him for a Bratz doll—clad in spike heels, fishnets and miniskirt, enormous puppy-dog eyes protruding from her oversized head. Her sexy look seemed a little too sexy for a preschooler, so he and his wife bought her a different doll, which she was happy with.
