Apologies, Graceseeker, I just noticed this on yet another of your many posts on mainstream media:
yes I pray the rosary
but I fail to see how watching Fox News is somehow a bad thing. I don't take interest in every story, but we should all know what's going on in the capital. It affects us, sometimes dreadfully
Praying the Rosary is a great plus for you as a Graceseeker.
Matthew used to have a great thread permanently on his front page (pinned) about the dangers inherent in watching TV. You should check it out.
I don't know why but the "excellent article" has disappeared, but the thread remains.
I never "know what's going on in the capital". I feel no loss for not knowing. I get most of my news from my hushand, CathInfo and books. I am reasonably well informed for my needs.
The trouble with dependence on TV and Fox News:
You don't get the truth or the full story
While your watching TV you are not using your mind,
you being forcefed what somebody else wants you to believe or think.
You are bombarded with advertising and pornographic imagery
In most homes, the TV replaces the altar as the central point and so becomes an idol.
That's just a few reasons not to watch.
