I would like to see real religious shows. As for being all things for all men, ABC (American Broadcasting Company) is one channel that is challenging to watch. Prime time tv shows don't even bleep out bad language! Some of us are offended by this. But tv wants to be all things to all people. Sex is advertised all day long. Who wants to watch that? They are making a mockery of it. God intended for married couples to have sex in a way that pleases him. On tv it's all about ratings and pushing the limit. I accidentally turned on a soap and two guys were kissing! Gross! God wiped out a whole city (Sodom and Gomhorra) for that kind of activity. There are just no morals anymore

King David was inspired to say "I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me" Psalm 101:3. Delivering the true message Jesus had when he walked the earth wouldn't work on TV. The forum is much too evil: a show with men kissing followed by a prime time show with the message of salvation. I don't think so. But one day, according to the Bible, things will be made right, and we won't have to be afraid we might set a wicked thing before our eyes when we open a magazine or turn on TV. Even so come!!

I have watched T.V. for many years and there seem to be something for every one. We should not be too critical over the mockery or exaggerations or outrageous portrayals of our moral values or beliefs in the shows we watch. After all, most of the time people watch television is because they want "candy" for the eyes and not because they want to have reassurances that our values and beliefs are the norm in our culture. People that are offended by what they view on T.V. should simply turn the channel or turn their sets off...sensorship of the airwaves is more dangerous
