In this March 12, 2012 file photo, actor Angus T. Jones arrives at the Paleyfest panel discussion of the television series "Two and a Half Men" in Beverly Hills, Calif. Jones, the teenage actor who plays the half in the hit CBS comedy "Two and a Half Men" says it's "filth" and through a video posted by a Christian church has urged viewers not to watch it.

Angus T. Jones has proved momentarily brave in speaking out against the "filth" on "Two and a Half Men," as he did in November. His twinge of conscience was short-lived, however.

Jones is returning to the show after rescinding his earlier statements, with apologies ("Teen actor to return to CBS show," Jan. 13).

I still applaud Jones' earlier conscience in speaking out against "filth." I hail his words: "Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch." Unfortunately, Jones gave in to the powerful and noisy voices of Hollywood.

The battle of right over wrong is endless and manifest in every arena of life.
