Good reason to unplug the TV.

MotherOfLiberty and I unplugged ours 8 years ago (except to watch an occasional video or sporting event) and haven't regretted it once. When our children visit their friends, they don't even WANT to watch TV - they get bored. They'd rather do other activities.

Best decision we ever made...

Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever." Thomas Jefferson.

For we know Him who said, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. And again, "The LORD will judge His people." It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:30-31 NKJV

Don't have to conduct a study to find out that TV is over-sexed, even commercials are pathetically laden with that virus. The core of movies, TV, singers - all types of entertainment is sex. Seems like many a father and mother have not been parenting in the last years; they have been busy making money.
