Everyone has a different point of view on most topics, and while we can listen to others views, we may not agree with them...that's our choice......what a great way to live.
Everyone knows I don't watch scary movies, and no matter how much others, (hello Tony and Sam) will try to tell me that something isn't scary, it's ultimately up to me if I watch it or not.....it's the same with these programmes with a nudity or sexually explicit plot. CHOICE......

Our society hasn't broken down because of the many things you mentioned? The world has gone to hell. Our society and your society has gone to hell. We are taking God out of everything and this is a good thing? We are so close to the end that it is a serious matter, not a joke.
Do you think all the wars, famine, many natural disasters just happen like they have in the past fews years. There are even tornados killing people in the USA in late November. Earthquakes, hurricanes killing thousands. Child molestation on the rise. All kinds of people in the clergy raping and having sex with children. I guess you are right, we do live in a great moral society!!

I doubt we have as many on our tv here as there are in ther countries, but we are lucky enough to have a very good Australian television network, that give us some quality tv......

Classical Greek philosophers considered the foremost virtues to be prudence, temperance, courage, and justice. Early Christian Church theologians adopted these virtues and considered them to be equally important to all people, whether they were Christian or not.
The Contrary Virtues were derived from the Psychomachia ("Battle for the Soul"), an epic poem written by Prudentius (c. 410). Practicing these virtues is alledged to protect one against temptation toward the Seven Deadly Sins: humility against pride, kindness against envy, abstinence against gluttony, chastity against lust, patience against anger, liberality against greed, and diligence against sloth.
The Heavenly Virtues combine the four Cardinal Virtues: prudence, temperance, fortitude -- or courage, and justice, with a variation of the theological virtues: faith, hope, and charity.
Continuing the numerological mysticism of Seven, the Christian Church assembled a list of seven good works that was included in medieval catechisms. They are: feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, give shelter to strangers, clothe the naked, visit the sick, minister to prisoners, and bury the dead.
