You have to read this from Jim Daly...

"Labeling a popular sitcom as “filth” is hardly news, unless the critique comes from one of its own stars.
Angus T. Jones plays the role of “Jake Harper” in the CBS program, “Two and a Half Men.” The 19-year-old actor created a firestorm this past Monday when he acknowledged that as a new Christian he’s grown disgusted with his participation in the program.
"I'm on 'Two and a Half Men' and I don't want to be on it,” he told the Forerunner Chronicles, a media outlet which is part of an Alabama-based Church. “Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch."
He continued: "If I am doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan ... You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't,” he continued. “I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show."
A few weeks earlier, Mr. Jones told the Seventh-Day Adventist Media Center...“It is a strange position I am put in. I am under contract for another year so it is not too much of a decision on my part. I know God has me there for a reason for another year.”
There’s no question the Lord can use His people in any setting, however compromised. But in this situation, does Mr. Jones have a moral obligation to walk away from his contract – or does breaking his contract constitute, in and of itself, a violation of a moral obligation?"
