Pope Speaks Out Against Television


Pope John Paul II yesterday cautioned parents of the dangers of TV, in a preliminary speech before World Communications Day, which is held in May. The Pope said that TV was dangerous to family values, and urged parents to take greater control.

Pope John Paul said that family values were "all too often inadequately protrayed in media. Such portrayals... are detrimental to the common good of society." The portrayals he speaks of are the promotion of divorce and homosexuality.

According to the Pope, parents should assert stricter control over the family telvision, using "wisdom and discernment" when it comes to what their children are allowed to watch.
