“Say to the believing men that they restrain their eyes and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Surely, Allah is well aware of what they do. And say to the believing women that they restrain their eyes and guard their private parts, and that they disclose not their natural and artificial beauty except that which is apparent thereof, and that they draw their head-coverings over their bosoms.” (Al Quran 24:31-32)
“And come not near unto adultery; surely, it is a foul thing and an evil way.” (Al Quran 17:33)
“Friendship with the world is enmity to God.” (James 4:4)

According to Dr. Jane Brown, journalism professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, “If you believe Sesame Street taught your four-year-old something, then you better believe MTV is teaching your 14-year-old something, because the influence doesn’t stop when we come to a certain age.”
There’s no getting around it. What our children watch on TV effects everything about them, especially their outlook on morality. I think it’s safe to say that just about everyone in America knows that the Hollywood elite and product advertisers intentionally target the young. Those who don’t believe it are either in deep denial or they’re dumber than a fence post! I say that only because advertisers don’t even try to hide their marketing schemes from consumers. Why should they? Consumers seem oblivious to the fact that they’re being brainwashed.
So, what’s behind the effort to turn our kids into good little hedonists? Hollywood knows that if they can win our children over to their depraved worldview, they win the country. Make no mistake about it: The anti-God crowd is winning our children. And while parents are snoozing, youngsters are losing their innocence.
The worldview depicted in the majority of TV and films is anti-God. Yet Christian’s viewing habits are not much different than the world’s. Believers regularly tune into programs where the men are portrayed as nothing more than oversexed, incompetent, disrespected boobs! Where offspring are smarter and wiser than their dim-witted dads. Granted, we are no longer under the law, we are free in Christ!
But, that doesn’t mean we’re free to behave like Beavis and Butthead. Believers are called to be holy, which means we should all be striving to be more like Christ. That’s a no-brainer.
Editors Note: The terminology used in this article pertains to the Christians but in fact it is applicable to many religions including Islam as the moral values are similar in most religions.
