Networks push limits on obsenity
Jan. 19 was a banner day for obscenity on network television.

Bono barked out the four-letter word par excellence when he accepted the award for best song at the Golden Globes ceremony, and it was delivered live to East Coast viewers of NBC.

A few hours earlier, a CBS microphone caught a man using the same word during the American Football Conference championship game between the Oakland Raiders and the Tennessee Titans.

About the same time, back on NBC, actor Colin Farrell made a scatological reference, traditionally verboten on network TV, during a preceremony Golden Globes show. ...

It stands to reason that television will only continue to demoralize. As more and more Christians "chuck it", or "pull the plug", the only audience remaining are the amoral. As such, this is the customer to which they will pander and this is the consumer that will not bother to contact a reactive FCC should infractions occur.

I have really appreciated reading the above comments/testimonies about people who have got rid of the idiot box.
As a fellow Christian, I would really appreciate reading some more testimonies of other people who have done the same...

My family got rid of our Televisions and now my son, who is two, loves his books and has no desire for the latest Fad Toys or Cartoons which usually put forth a less than Christian message. We all have more Family Time and we also have reading time in which we read to my son and he sees our interest in books, which he has adopted. This is a great plus for when we put the word of God before him. Also, he does not have television images confusing his already fragile mind. Calculate the amount of time that you Watch TV then calculate the time you spend in God’s word, prayer, studying, reading, family time etc. The absence of the television has been nothing but a blessing for my family. Don’t take the chance of polluting your mind, or your family’s mind, flipping through the channels. As a last note, research the writings of the protestant men of God, in history, on their perspective of the theater.

How can we expect children and young people to respect anything, when no respect is shown on most TV program's and it's called entertainment.Is anyone listening.

Amen! to the comment by R. Williams. We got rid of it when our first child was born 8 years ago. It took about six months to really get used to not having it - and we've never missed it since.

There was no "straw" in our case. We just felt we were wasting our lives in front of it. It was one of the greatest decisions we've ever made.

So... does anyone realize there is an "off" switch? Or better yet, yank the plug, chuck the monster (!) and start reading again - the old, good literature and books. If you think it will not work - I challenge you to try it. We did and life has been wonderfully enjoyable since then.
What made us do it: The weatherman cussed - that broke the camel's back. (Apologies to the camels!)
