Who won the culture wars again?

Forget gay marriage for a moment and note something that is a less concrete, but still powerful, indicator of the tides of culture:

"Squeaky clean" Jessica Simpson, whose father is a Baptist youth minister, and was a virgin until she got married, on the cover of Rolling Stone....

Her father notes that now that she's married she's "doing it until she's blue in the face". Is this how we expect a Protestant evangelical youth pastor to speak of his daughter? In 2003 it's not outside the bounds of normality....
