John Stonestreet and Shane Morris tackle this question from a listener: “The director of “Cuties” was trying to highlight the sexualization of girls. Why are you condemning this movie when that was her intention and the film so clearly portrays what happens to girls in a highly sexualized culture?”

John and Shane give an impassioned response, one that ends up tying directly into the second question about human dignity: “You always say that every human [including pre-teen actresses in “Cuties”] is made in the image of God . . . but God is a spirit, we are all humans. How do you explain ‘in the image of God’?”
