Quote# 15402

I wanted to say THANK YOU for Sky Angel. We were with you for over four years, and then a friend told us about another satellite network that picked up Angel One and TBN. She deterred me because she said 'Oh, it has the History Channel, things about animals, and so much more on it, that you'll never miss Sky Angel'...

Well, we tried the other satellite company for six months and we saw a major change in our seven-year-old son. He was more hyper and picked up a lot of words and sayings that we did not like from the so-called 'family friendly' channels. And he only watched TV for an hour a day (if that)! I couldn't believe the TRASH that was on there, and many of the channels were blocked.

(Some of) the things they offered were good, yes, but WE CAN GET ALL OF THAT ON SKY ANGEL!! History like dinosaurs in the Bible, biographies of people. The Critter Gitters is an AWESOME animal show, Discovery Jones. And we LOVE the science programs--Enoch! Oh my goodness!! And the list goes on.

Since our move back to you two months ago our son is back to normal. He doesn't imitate the 'kid stars' on the other channels, or mouth off with what some of the cartoon characters say. He imitates things he sees on Sky Angel...especially Discovery Jones.

No, we don't keep our son in a bubble. We show him the REAL THINGS of life. He sees the evening news, he reads the headlines in the papers, and he sees the price of sin people pay. We are your average American family. We love to have backyard cookouts, love water parks, enjoy a good movie. We can be found in our backyard giving the dog a bath, or at a hockey game screaming at the top of our lungs for our favorite team. So, for those who think Sky Angel is for boring people, you're wrong. :o) It's great! And we have grown tremendously from it!

If I were to say anything, my statement would ditto the old saying, "Garbage in.... Garbage out"


P.S. I can't wait to see the August biographies. We're looking forward to seeing Paul the Apostle. Now THAT'S history!" :o)

Translation: Anything that we don't agree with is trash and we don't want to hear it, and don't want our childern to hear it.

And as for the bubble comment, I would say that you do live in one. At least as far as anything that can be proven by fact.

So you are offended at the thought of showing you kid anything even remotely sexual, but you show him what's happening in the Middle East? Somehow, I'm not seeing how this isn't contradictory.

I bet Joe and Melissa have a lot of black studded leather hanging in their closet.

You are full of brain damage. Please stop trying to spread it.

9/28/2006 2:49:07 AM


Paul the apostate, yes, that's HISTORY!

9/28/2006 2:53:36 AM


Biographies? Of people!? Jesus Christ! Now that's TV!

\"History like dinosaurs in the Bible...\"

No where in the Bible and Torah I have read that says dinosaurs. WTF?!

9/28/2006 3:13:45 AM


my jaw is hanging open. I wish there was a concise way I could express it, but there isn't. I'm stunned rigid.

Son mimics what he sees on God channels; this is good.

Son mimics what he sees on cartoons and Disney shows; this is bad.

Son is back to mimicking God channels; all is well.

Your son is at the age where he memorizes and repeats stimuli. He didn't change; he just wasn't quoting the Bible. Which was the problem, apparently.

9/28/2006 3:24:27 AM



Oh, and YES to the 'black leather in the closet' comment.

Right on.

9/28/2006 3:26:07 AM


No, we don't keep our son in a bubble.

Sure, you keep telling yourself that.

History like dinosaurs in the Bible

I really wish I could meet whoever came up with this particular gem, so I could punch them in the nose. There are enough misconceptions about history floating around, without outright fiction being added into the mess.

9/28/2006 3:34:26 AM


If it doesn't offer the Discovery Channel, Sci Fi Network and some form of cartoon channel, it isn't worth getting.

Lemme guess: You get a Christian newspaper.

Words fail me.

Big fucking bubble award?

\"Garbage in.... Garbage out\"

You got that right.

This is too sad for words.

9/28/2006 5:33:17 AM


You´re a troll, not the average American family. I don´t know many who watch documentaries that say that dinosours are included in the Bible(they aren´t)

9/28/2006 8:08:41 AM


If your son is warching shows that tell him that dinosaurs are in the Bible, yes, you are living in a bubble.

Is this TV service Kent Hovind's new pet project or something?

Damn straight! That there's a whoooole pile of garbage!

Or perhaps stop your kids watching tv and have them read books.

Other than the Bible. Oh forget it...

Remember, kiddies: The Babble is supreme law!

Correction: Your son reads the evening news programs and paper headlines that you choose for him, which by the sound of it will be heavily biased towards your point of view.

If you're an average American family, that country (and probably the rest of the world) is in serious trouble.

\"We are your average American family\"

Then God help America

\"We are your average American family\"

Good Lord have mercy for America. If this the average familly 1984 isn't very far...

Yes, words like Darwin, evolution, First Amendment...you know, sin!
