There are (at least) two unhealthy reactions our culture has to porn. The first is that porn is so common, we fail to see why it is a problem. The second is that it is so taboo, we fail to talk about how it is secretly hooking us.
Our friends in the She’s Somebody’s Daughter movement are seeking to dismantle both lies.
“She’s Somebody’s Daughter”
Steve Siler, founder of the movement, wants to plant one simple phrase into our culture in the hopes that it will turn the tide against the rampant acceptance of commercial sex. That phrase is, “She’s somebody’s daughter.” He’s starting with one city and going from there.
At the beginning of this month, Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin proclaimed October 1 “She’s Somebody’s Daughter Day” in her state. Next week in Oklahoma City, hundreds will be gathering on the riverfront with their flashlights to take a stand against sexual exploitation. Every attendee will “shine a light” for the daughters they care about, making a statement to their city that women do not deserve to be treated as mere sex objects.
Somebody’s Daughter DVD
As much as porn has been embraced by our culture, it has been a greatly taboo subject in the church. This is why, back in 2008, Steve Siler released a documentary called Somebody’s Daughter: A Journey to Freedom from Pornography.
This DVD-CD set features interviews with individuals in ministry who have fought with porn temptations tooth-and-nail. The DVD also contains music videos from the Somebody’s Daughter album from Music for the Soul.
