It's all about money.
*headdesk* That's what you get for living in a capitalist nation. If it sells and it's legal (although illegality doesn't stop everyone) they're going to sell it.

See that power button on your clicker?
There, all better.
No need to pray for death now.
Go outside and watch a sunset or something.

I actually agree with part of this. TV is all about stations competing for advertising money. I really don't like TV for this reason.
Of course... you could always watch Public Access TV? Nova?
you could of course, read a book (other than that one!)...

Re: capitalist nation
but communists are atheists!? what to do, what to do?
I'm not sure that most of these people know how to compare or contrast a capitalist nation with a communist one objectively

When I don't watch my TV, it gets angry and beats me up.

"The only thing I've found that can protect me or my family from the garbage we live around in this world is a relationship with Jesus Christ" ... (bombarded by sin bit) ... "It's impossible to escape unless one were to live in a cave."
There's a difference?

Hey, my tv is good for three things:
2. Star Trek
3. Professional wrestling (Don't judge me!)
When I am not watching those, the TV is OFF. Give it a try some time!

Welcome to USA, kid. All hope abandon, you who enter here.

I love that word "debauchery". It's a great old word, that isn't used that much any more.
Webster: "to indulge in extreme sensual pleasure"
So turn off the TV and enjoy some debauchery :P
9/12/2008 6:58:04 PM
Well, he DOES have a point. TV pretty much sucks.
9/12/2008 6:59:38 PM
I don't know, on my cable system there is a whole block of channels dedicated to nothing but televangelsts. I am offended by that but I also know that I don't have to watch those channels.
You are correct about one thing, you certainly are not perfect.
9/12/2008 6:59:55 PM
Of course if you see sin in everything then you will probably be bombarded with sin.
So you hate greed? So I take it you won't vote republican then?
9/12/2008 7:01:13 PM
never heard of an off switch?
9/12/2008 7:01:28 PM
" It's impossible to escape unless one were to live in a cave. "
That's where you'd be living without atheist science.

As long as you're happy, NP. Go away now and leave the adults alone.

T.V is rampant with lewdness, vulgarities, and a sinful competitiveness to "one up" the other stations. It's all about viewers and cash, it's all greed. The mentality is: "the more offensive, the more taboo, the more people will talk about it long after it's over."
Have to agree with the guy there.

Whinin' fer Jesus Award.
If you didn't have some reason to think you were suffering, you wouldn't be happy. Go piss up a rope.
9/12/2008 7:34:48 PM
Why do you base your worldview on TV?
Don't you realize there are better ways to kill time AND get information?
Do you understand that TV is essentially devoid of intelligent content?
9/12/2008 7:36:16 PM
I am happy to know Jesus and that everything on this planet is coming to an end as we know it.
"Anyone who doesn't think like me should be exterminated!!!"
9/12/2008 7:55:51 PM
The typical whingeing believer.
Listen chum, nobody is stopping you from living the life you want to. If you don't like what's on TV turn it off. If you don't like the cinema, don't go there. If you don't like what your neighbours are doing, don't spy on them in their bedrooms. It's a relatively free country so you have choices. Exercise them.
But what you are not allowed to do is to whine because everybody else is enjoying themselves and you are not. It's your belief system, don't force it on others to make them as miserable as you are.
Now get back to your whips and chains and cilices to do penance for your sins of interfering in other people's lives.
As to the planet coming to en end, your types have been willing and wishing for this since the first millennium. We are still waiting. Jesus, too, promised he would come, roughly within 50 years of his Ascension. We are still waiting... So perhaps it's not possible for him to come back. How long do you wait for a date to show up?

It's impossible to escape unless one were to live in a cave.
No, it's easy - just turn your TV off. People who whine about sin aren't really worried about themselves. They think they're perfect little God-fearing angels. They're judgmental, hate-filled, holier-than-thou hypocrites who want to control the lives and tastes of all the rest of the devil-spawned, latte-sipping, Volvo-driving liberals who are destroying their fantasy of a Leave-It-To-Beaver life.

mmmm...pit of sludge......

Allegory for Jesus
"garbage we live around in this world"
Sigh...it's YOUR garbage!
" I am bombarded with sin, and I don't live in that big of a city."
You must spend too much time in church...
"There is lasciviousness and debauchery everywhere."
Oh, I see. This is you having dramatic overreaction to the idea of people having sex. Wonderful.
"T.V is rampant with lewdness, vulgarities, and a sinful competitiveness to "one up" the other stations."
Competitiveness is sinful now? Wow. Somebody is trying to justify their never getting a raise...
"it's all greed."
In a society where it isn't possible to be self-sufficient without income anymore, a little bit of greed is a necessity. People without any greed will die. It is the price of industrial prosperity.
"the more offensive, the more taboo, the more people will talk about it long after it's over"
It worked for the Bible...
"what happens to a nation when God is rejected from every public venue."
"I am happy to know Jesus and that everything on this planet is coming to an end as we know it."
And the real garbage finally makes an appearance...

I know where you can find some good caves. Can I have your house?
