Kill your television! – III

Television is hazardous to moral health according to a new study:

“On the issue of abortion, 44 percent of light TV viewers (those who watch one hour or less per night, accounting for 22.5 percentage of the population) said abortion is wrong, compared to 27 percent of heavy TV viewers (those who watch four hours or more per night, accounting for 25 percent of the population).

While 39 percent of light TV viewers said sex outside of marriage was always wrong, only 26 percent of heavy viewers considered sex outside of marriage to be always wrong.

Fifty-five percent of light viewers said homosexuality is wrong, while only 43 percent of heavy viewers agreed. Sixty-four percent of light viewers opposed same-sex marriage, compared to 57 percent of heavy TV viewers.

While only 28 percent of heavy viewers are frequent church goers, 47 percent of light viewers go to church regularly. More than half (51 percent) of heavy viewers said they rarely or never attended church, while only 29 percent of light viewers said they went to church ‘rarely or never’.”
