Hollywood is directly marketing its most explicit content to kids
Although the nation‚Äôs leading nonpartisan family television watchdog group has good reason to be optimistic heading into 2020, there's also cause for concern for families looking to protect their children from seeing explicit content.
Over the course of the last few years, there has been a "dramatic change" in Hollywood. According to the Parents Television Council, it‚Äôs been a very ‚Äúdangerous turn.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúInstead of children just being collateral damage in the way of whatever explicit content they want to deliver to adults, Hollywood now seems to be directly marketing some of the most explicit stuff to children,‚ÄĚ PTC President Tim Winter told The Christian Post in an interview....
I think the influence of immature or perverted parents and peers is 10√ó as bad as visual media. Delinquent children have existed long before film and TV, hence the Torah law for executing incorrigibles.
Why would any parent who doesn‚Äôt want their children watching filth even have a TV or Hollywood movies in the home? That‚Äôs a real head scratcher. And why would the wicked world even care whether their children are soaked in sin or not since there‚Äôs no right or wrong to them?
Just the notion that there would be a Parents Television Counsel is ludicrous to me since wise and good parents have nothing to do with all that TV wickedness. Surely they would not let their children get near it either. Nobody said you have to watch the stupid stuff, except, of course, Hollywood.
Hardly surprising as major medianhas been pressing the envelope for years. This way, they can hook the next generation. Something about a millstone and being drowned in the midst of the sea comes to mind.
Catholics have been media "Moral Guardians" for a long time now. Here's plausible fodder for you Jesuit conspiracy theorists:
The leader of Parents Television Council, Brent Bozell [related to the late Wm F. Buckley], is on the board of advisers of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, an organization defending Catholics against defamation (i.e., any Protestant criticism of Catholic doctrine). It was founded by Jesuit priest Virgil Blum.
Surely there must be conservative lobbies in this country NOT involved with the RCC. Yet Catholic leaders also support Leftist causes like Latin American immigration, minimum wages, and universal health care.
