TV show ‘does nothing for our society’

There’s a new show on HBO called Big Love. This show features a polygamist family in a SLC suburb. HBO says that the script makes it clear that LDS church members don’t practice polygamy.Today I was reading a news release the Church made that helps non church members understand our Church’s stance on these issues. I thought this paragraph was very true, “Despite its popularity with some, much of today’s televesion entertainment shows an unhealthy preoccupation with sex, coarse humor and foul language. Big Love, like so much other television programming, is essentially lazy and indulgent entertainment that does nothing for our society and will never nourish great minds. Parents who are casual about their viewing habits ought not to be surprised if teaching moral choices and civic values to their children becomes harder as a result.”
