Miley Cyrus' Theology of the Body

19 year old Miley Cyrus, formerly Hannah Montana, was on a talk show yesterday letting everyone know about her own version of the Theology of the Body.  Among the dimes that Ms. Cyrus dropped are the following:

1) "Your worth isn’t based on [sex],  Your worth is based on how you feel about yourself.”

2) "Sex is magic and it is when you connect with somebody."

3) Sex is magical and cool

I will agree with one thing she said - parents need to talk to their kids about it.

Parents, if you don't talk to your kids about sex (and more than once), if you don't teach them and show them how to be a responsible consumer of media, if you aren't in a proactive mode and are simply reacting to these issues, then know that your children ARE learning about it from people like Ms. Cyrus.
