When There is Nothing Left to Shock

I got a good laugh when I read several years ago in NEWSWEEK that at a Nudist colony in France, a frustrated fifteen year old girl donned a bikini at the beach. The reason?-"When I'm nude, the boys don't look at me!"

The poor girl reflects a problem that is starting to be addressed in our culture in the U.S.—what does a permissive society do when it runs out of shock value? Our society hasn't quite reached the point of being a nudist colony, although in some cases we are getting close.

Jesus words two thousand years ago ring louder than ever today, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”
