TED-Movie

Review from Movieguide.org

Ted: TED is unacceptable, abhorrent viewing for any audience. Very strong pagan hedonistic behavior, and a brief politically correct subplot promoting homosexuality, plus a couple positive references to Christmas, including brief talk about a “Christmas miracle” and Christmas tree has an angel on top and stupid-sounding man on TV exclaims, “Look what Jesus did! Look what Jesus did! Look what Jesus did!”; at least 124 obscenities (mostly “f” and “s” words), 19 or 20 strong profanities, 19 light profanities, and one obscene gesture.” For full review click here.

Modern Family

Saltshakers warns people in its July 2010 journal of a new TV programme The Modern Family, which shows on Channel 10 at 8pm on Tues nights. The blurb for the programme says: “The modern family isn’t that different to your family.” Yet the family includes a homosexual couple with an adopted Vietnamese baby girl. The homosexual couple are viewed in a better light than the married son. “One starts to think there might be an underlying agenda at work,” Saltshakers writes.

Be Discerning

Advertisements are a way of changing moral standards in the community, warns Saltshakers in their July 2010 journal.

Action: Saltshakers says next time the TV is on, think about the programmes and the adverts you’re watching and the influence they can have on your family. The journal points to what Paul wrote in Philippians 4: 8

“Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable –if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”

The question is, are we thinking (or dwelling) on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable?
