Changing Channels

Last week I credited television for the fact some quality shows like Cosby and Home Improvement can be seen during the day in recent years.

Some television programmers, like TNT, also should be slammed, however, for allowing shows like Charmed and Angel to air at 8 a.m.

Both deal with sorcery, wizardry and things like witches and magic and just aren’t appropriate shows for children.

Look at this partial description for an episode of Charmed: “Prue’s decision to intervene during a woman’s suicide attempt backfires and places her on the receiving end of a Darklighter’s wrath as an evil being tortures her into trying to take her own life.”

Yeah, that sounds like a good, healthy program to wake up to.

I know, I completely missed or quite frankly passed on the whole Harry Potter phenomenon but I am glad I did.

I don’t think it’s healthy to give children the idea they can conjure up powers to fight off evil spirits.

Only Christ has that ability, not a JK Rowling creation. Fighting evil by evil means can be a very dangerous path to follow.
