[quote=Poprox] T.V. is not evil,
Not intrinsically. But it does its will.
[quote=Poprox]and those older shows…create false realities of our world. Families and lives are not perfect,
I know isn’t it aweful all those people walking around acting like Ozzy and Harriet. Being overly nice to each other, not making any sexual comments, no swearing. Its a real problem in our culture isn’t it? Those shows really lead us a stray.
[quote=Poprox]we can’t shield people from the harsh world we live in (in my findings, I was never shielded from the “ugly facts of life”, and I’m in a small handful of people in my community who has a morals…while those that were shielded from everything under the sun, have a warped view of ethics…ironic no?)
If you have morals it’s by the grace of God not because you where exposed to a lack of virtue.
[quote=Poprox]Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean that your view is correct. Someone may not approve of your way of thinking, and with T.V., there is a lot that we can learn about our culture (goods and bads). By the way, watching Videos and DVD’s, still counts as T.V., and I do hate splitting hairs, but let’s not point fingers.
Read the Bible friend. There is alot og pointing fingers there. Not condeming people, but pointing out evil for what it is.
[quote=Poprox]I’m not trying to make enemies, I’m just stating my point of view, and while there are some things on T.V. that I DO NOT LIKE, it’s not my place to force my beliefs on others, all I can do is issue my two cents, and call it a good day.
This is exactly what our Holy Father was talking about recently when he said America is loosing it’s spirituality to materialism and relativism.
We are called to point out evil when and where we see it.
