The Wrong Messenger

This message of end-times doom and a demand for repentance comes from this person.

That's right, the author of the X-rated autobiography "Sex", the person who went on David Letterman in 1994 and dropped the f-bomb repeatedly before she was ejected, not to return till 2000, the person whose videos (anyone remember Justify My Love?) which even MTV wouldn't play, the "kiss" with Britney Spears...this is likely not the person whose word I would take about holiness and right living.

Stranger things have happened, of course. After persecuting Christians, Paul became one of Christianity's greatest missionaries, risking his life on a regular basis to spread the Gospel. Franklin Graham was a troublemaker before he laid aside worldly ways and chose to be a Christian in his father's tradition. Norma McCorvey (the Roe of Roe v. Wade) rejected abortion and the case she pushed to the Supreme Court in favor of a message of life.

But in this case, and much like Jonah Goldberg when this family-friendly drivel began coming out of her as nothing more than her latest means of self-marketing, I am somehow less than convinced.
