Media Violence and Christian Values (81010-C2-¶162.Q)

Amend ¶ 162 Q) Media Violence and Christian Values as follows:
For the sake of our human family, Christians must work together to halt this erosion of moral and ethical values in the world community  by:
    1.    encouraging local congregations to support and encourage parental responsibility to monitor their children’s viewing and listening habits on TV, movies, radio and the internet,
    2.    encouraging local congregations, parents and individuals to express their opposition to the gratuitous portrayal of violent and sexually indecent shows by writing to the stations that air them and the companies that sponsor them,
    3.    encouraging individuals to express their opposition to the corporate sponsors of these shows by the selection and purchase of alternate products.
    

Rationale

The paragraph is long and ought to be reduced. The style is non-consistent with the rest of the social principles.
