Please. i dont want a lecture on what I should do in life. Just a yes or no answer.
Take a tape player, go around playing these things. You are the initiator, you are the one causing it to be said.
The devil is happy, the sin is repeated, the angels depart.
Take a tape player, record the holy names said devoutly, play it over and over again, the opposite occurs, the devils are dismayed the angels rejoice. Peace enters the house.
Compare: with TV, if you froze frame, and kept a bad shot as a picture to hang on your wall, in the family room. It is the responsibility of parents and to individuals to keep this stuff out, not let it in.
That is why the Christian life is a completely different life than the life of the world, and, a much more beautiful and holy one. Why people give things up, and throw things away, like televisions, entire libraries of worldly cds, dvds, books, etc.
Many people will say one can have both, the life of the world and the Christian life. Many are called, few complete the journey. Many compromise, few give up all for Christ and embrace the wonders of His life.
If you want good food to keep the mind occupied go to the saints and to sacred music. There is also a select portion of, but certainly not all of classical polyphony.
