    We have abandoned our own personal responsibility for what we find acceptable, and our ownership of what those in our care can determine for themselves. Instead we, who normally demand the government avoid doing anything for us, demand the government protect us from stuff we can easily avoid. If we'd just grow up a bit, we can get to a point where we're not all in a twist about stuff we don't like. We'd just turn it off, and so would our kids. And that would be the end of it.

    I'm almost more worried about the content of many (most?) TV shows streaming into our homes than I am about internet.

    The moral deterioration of cable TV and now threats that network TV will follow suit, are totally terrifying.

    This morning I caught a little of the Today Show on Channel 5 that seemed to be pushing for relaxation of rules on broadcast TV. (Honestly, I was only half listening.) But if even the broadcast TV become the kind of sewer that now flows into our homes via cable, we're in big trouble.

    I really wonder what would happen if one of the major networks would find the courage to stand up and say, "Enough. We are going to keep our content safe and family friendly."

    Do you think there's a chance that Americans might flock to watch their shows? Or are we so far gone that it would fail?

    WE are the answer to that question, folks. Not only LDS, but other denominations as well. What would happen if we all -- regardless of differences -- joined together in a huge outcry?

    My2cents: seriously? Your comment emphasizes just how naive people are. Taking your child offline--impossible, no way no e. This is an online world. But what parents can do is realize they might be naive, and become educated. What a great conference, and three chers for the people who take the time and willingness to attend and learn.

    Why don't the parents just take their children off line? Or is that too simple and parental?

    Next will be laws to prosecute parents for allowing children to talk to predators on line. Twisted logic and twisted technology.
