There is an old saying of "Give an inch and they will take a mile."
How true it is and it is just the case in THIS instance.Another case is
that where the ice can be thick and strong, little by little it melts -- until
?????A family with clean thoughts and ways can survive, but the one with
hardly noticeable continued impure habits is doomed.This has applied to
all past nations as well. While at their peak of doing the right thing, each
in turn lived well -- BUT !Which road is the USA prepared to tread ?
There's and old story about a couple brothers who had differing Ideas of
their fathers plan, too.I'll leave the choice to those in
control of their own TV's and radios, not those who want someone else to
decide for them and their family and yours and everyone else, what is
appropriate for them.We are not a nation of 7 year olds, quit trying
to sterilize everything to the moral standards of the dark ages.
The last thing we need is more sexuality and vulgar cursing during prime time.
Save it for late night and weekends!The argument of "just change
the channel" doesn't work either- you don't know to change the
channel until you have ALREADY heard the cursing and seen the nudity! You are
already exposed, and that is something many parents avoid for their children and
for themselves. There is no need for this during "family time." Later
evening, late night and weekends are already fair game for more adult
entertainment, isn't it? And no, I'm not a prude, but I believe no
young child should have to hear vulgar language and nudity when watching TV with
their family. They just aren't mature enough to handle it yet, nor should
they have to be. And quite frankly, I want to be able to enjoy a TV show without
nudity and vulgar cursing as well. I have a right to that as well!
My friend wrote "As a concerned parent and citizen, it is my STRONG request
that the FCC decency standards NOT be relaxed. I do not want my children nor
myself to be exposed to nudity or profanity on TV. If you approve relaxing the
standard, my family and I will stop watching TV and stick to DVDs that we know
meet our standards for decency. Thank you for your time and consideration."
I ditto her words and add mine, we need to save our children and future
generations from inappropriate behavior and teach them it is not alright to be
use vulgar language or act in a vulgar manner.
Just one more reason to NOT watch broadcast TV. There is lots out there that is
good. Let's turn off the smut! Who needs it!
I agree that the standards should not be relaxed. If anything the could be
tightened up a little. I would have sent my opinion to the FCC, but I'm
not comfortable on having all of my personal information available to the
As I went to the FCC website to make a comment I decided to do some
investigating and upon reading about the chairman and one of the commissioners
is stepping down. I find this interesting, in light of the direction in which
the FCC is headed. The chairman and the commissioner who are stepping down were
originally appointed by President Bush. I would encourage all who
can to submit complaints. The FCC needs to know to what extent they are facing
much opposition due to recent decisions. The link to follow can be found in this
Deseret News article.
We are already exposed to far too much when it comes to TV shows, internet and
advertising. I feel that I can hardly watch TV without my ears or eyes burning
due to what is being shown and what I hear. I am an adult and feel this way.
Imagine our poor children that are growing up faster than is necessary because
of what they see and hear. My point is this: It's already bad. Let's
not make it worse.
Here's what I sent to the FCC!The decency and modesty has
declined so TERRIBLY ALREADY in this country! TEENS are having BABIES.. TEENS
are Raping Teens..TEENS AND KIDS are even becoming Addicted To Pornography..
SMUT Mouthed KIDS are Running Rampant! WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU THINKING!!??? Do
NOT Make Matters WORSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do NOT Allow More Nudity and Language
on our tvs!!!!!!! I'm an Adult and I CAN'T stand what is allowed
