Television's Sexual Standards

Transmitted Diseases

A Man with a DrinkAt least one in ten adults suffers from alcoholism yet drunken driving still slays and maims thousands each year. A new norm has now entered the arena with the legalizing of marijuana, otherwise known as cannabis, in Canada and in some American states. British experts are warning that 20% of new users of marijuana will turn to hard drugs. We have yet to see the prospect of high drug users especially with the effects of some drugs lasting for weeks in control of vehicles on our roads. Toronto Police are now advising their officers to stay away from work for 22 days after using marajuana. Meanwhile, television soap operas model unbridled sexual immorality and low moral standards while viewers sit on their couches with the painful and even terminal consequences of a frightening array of sexually transmitted diseases. All the good this wonderful tool of technology offered is being submerged by the smutty agenda in society.

Negative Influence

TelevisionTelevision's low standards wash over into society from some programs. "Being hungry," it suggests, "is a just cause to steal in certain circumstances." "If you say you love someone," another jibes, "it is only natural to become sexually active with them." Christians who protest these twisted principles are sanctimoniously told, "Isn't your God a God of love! Why do you criticize love? Judge not, that you are not judged! Why do you show such hatred to others? You are just hateful people!" Unfortunately, no standards are becoming the norm in our promiscuous society. Things are getting worse as the actual crime and suicide rates increase!✞
