TV - The Tabernacle of Satan?

Eric Sammon's blog Divine Life has a thought provoking article on how much we allow our home-life be invaded by the less than edifying fare being piped through your average television set. Not that I'm advocating throwing the TV out the window. Tv, in and of itself is not bad and can be used for great good, but unfortunately it isn't being used for good alot of the time and much of our culture has now absorbed what I call - TV Values. But I think it is a salutary caution. As St. Paul tells us: “Fill your minds with those things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honorable” (Philippians 4:8)
Jessica Harris also has a very sobering warning, especially for parents in today's world, about the dangers that modern technology may pose to their children. When you open the link don't panic. The first word that will meet your eyes is the word 'Porn' because the website is called The Porn Effect. But don't worry the website is a Catholic site set up to help those who may have addictions or propensities to the use of pornography.
