Hyper-Sexualized Culture Fueling Human Trafficking
The sexualization of culture, which has fueled the world's human trafficking problem, was the focus of the Fourth Annual Symposium at Regent University's Center for Global Justice this past weekend.
Benjamin Nolot, founder of Exodus Cry, told symposium participants that cultural attitudes toward women must change to put an end to human trafficking.
Nolot said sado-masochistic movies like "Fifty Shades of Gray" have won broad support.
Efforts to combat human trafficking are growing, thanks to an increasing network of non-profits, churches, and government bodies that have become aware of the tragedy.
Benjamin Nolot, founder and president of Exodus Cry, an international anti-trafficking organization, recently spoke to CBN News Heather Sells about the movement and the cultural attitudes he hopes to change. Click play to watch the entire interview.
"Now the culture seems to be moving in the direction of not just endorsing or promoting the consumption of women on the part of men -- but the violent perpetration of women," he told CBN News. "It's kind of shocking in that sense to think that we've reached this point where there is no conscience whatsoever."
Nolot is currently producing a documentary that examines how our culture has become hyper-sexualized.
