Victoria’s Secret Sells Lies With Their Lingerie

To paraphrase Willie Nelson – ‘mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be …Taylor Swift’.   That is, unless you want your little girls to degrade themselves while they display their bodies for the pleasure of men. 

Tuesday evening CBS aired the erotic Victoria’s Secret “Fashion” Show – its yearly parade of nearly nude models in the skimpiest of lingerie.  Joining the display was singer Taylor Swift who performed two songs dressed in lingerie herself while she engaged in the same sexualized posing and antics as the models – including provocatively flirting with other women, the Victoria’s Secret models.

Taylor Swift, who earlier in her career had for the most part maintained a wholesome and scandal-free image, has now bought the lie of Victoria’s Secret, equating femininity with eroticism.  A lie which will be emulated by the young girls who idolize her.

Drawing in young girls is the modus operandi of Victoria’s Secret as they attempt to establish new generations of customers.  Several years ago VS began their “PINK” line of lingerie marketed to young teen girls and even preteens! 

Since then, the Victoria’s Secret lingerie show features a segment modeling their “PINK” line of lingerie geared toward young girls.  This year teen idol Arianna Grande, from the children’s TV network Nickelodeon, performed on the runway while VS models paraded lingerie from the “PINK” line.

But eroticism wasn’t the only thing Victoria’s Secret was pushing on their televised lingerie show.  The program also featured rock singer, Hozier, who performed his song “Take Me to Church” – a song which derides Christianity. 

Hozier has stated:  "The song was always about humanity at its most natural, and how that is undermined ceaselessly by religious [organizations] and those who would have us believe they act in its interests.”

Here are some of the lyrics to the song mocking the Christian Church which was performed while Victoria’s Secret “angels” paraded lingerie.

Take Me to Church

“… Every Sunday's getting more bleak

A fresh poison each week

 'We were born sick, ' you heard them say it

 My Church offers no absolutes

 She tells me, 'Worship in the bedroom.'

 The only heaven I'll be sent to

 Is when I'm alone with you—

I was born sick,

But I love it …

Take me to church

I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies

I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife …”

Obviously Victoria’s Secret has an agenda that isn’t just about selling a product.  They are selling an ideology which worships sex, self, and sensuality along with a warped view of beauty and femininity.

The Victoria Secret “Fashion” Show began by boasting of having “the most beautiful women in the world.”  But these tall, thin, women with perfectly portioned bodies and long, flowing hair are not the epitome of beauty. 

Some of the most beautiful women in the world wouldn’t be caught dead in Victoria’s Secret lingerie.  They are godly women like my 85 year old mother whose wrinkled hands fold in prayer each day for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  Or Vivian, a dear saintly woman in her nineties whose body may be a bit stooped and weak, but her faith is strong and shines to all those around her.  These are just two of the most beautiful women I know.  I’m sure you have your own list.

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”  (Proverbs 31:30)  I pray all the young women buying the lies Victoria’s Secret is selling along with their lingerie, will learn that vital truth.

We are one of the few ministries which have kept pressure upon Victoria’s Secret and their advertising ploys.  We again are providing a list of the sponsors who empowered the Victoria’s Secret “Fashion” Show on CBS.  As we’ve put pressure on the advertisers each year, we see fewer and fewer mainline corporations sponsoring this show.  However, there are still a number of companies who need to hear from you! 

They include:  Pantene shampoo and Downy fabric softener – both Procter & Gamble products.  P&G was also a big sponsor of Victoria’s Secret last year.   Other advertisers include, Visa, Snickers candy, Duracell, Sprint, and Pandora Jewelers.
