Stop using Gods name in Vain on TV
I'm so shocked by what is coming out now on programs my daughter is watching. No, respect-talk anyway you want to your parents.
How is it that we have become so politically correct in TV and movies and have not yet ceased taking the Lord’s name in vain? In fact, it has become more prevalent than ever. I, for one, find this appalling. I cannot count the number of new series I have had to stop watching because of this.
We are now smacked in the face in shows and commercials with ********** couples, biracial marriages, and transgender children – all in the name of political correctness. I am not against this. However, if you are going to inundate me with this, at least have the decency to consider my view and stop insulting my Lord and Savior.
Last evening, I stopped watching a movie made in 2011 that featured a “tweener” popping off the J word. I even checked close captioning to verify it. Blacklist had a woman saying jeeze and crackers (as verified by close captioning); you don’t have to guess what it actually sounded like. It seems to me this used to be allowed mostly on cable networks; let me mention Suits, which could not seem to have an episode without GD-ing us to death. I used to be able to avoid this by viewing only basic channels. Not so much anymore. The first season of This is Us contained it. I stopped watching either Seal Team or SWAT (can’t remember which now) when it first came out. Looks like Blacklist with have to go now too.
In addition, our dear old cable provider will not offer a lineup that does not contain shows taking the Lord’s name in vain, ****, or horror. I requested a lineup of family-friendly programs, but it does not exist. Shortly, I will be cutting cable. However, if the regular networks do not stop this, I will be left with nothing to watch, even by antennae.
Not dealing with this is simply discrimination against Christians, and I consider this language extremely politically incorrect. It is a blatant disregard for the God I believe in. If a kid cannot get dressed up for Halloween with certain costumes because they are offensive, how is it we (Christians) are allowed to be grossly offended in this way? I believe it is in England where you can no longer use the term brainstorming because if offends people. Everybody gets to take offence at anything but us, and yet we have a huge right to be offended here. What is wrong with this picture? We need to stand up and be heard.
Someone please advise – how do we fight against this? How do we get this on the list of political incorrectness and get it stopped?
I thought my ears were deceiving me on several NBC shows when I heard GD, but then!!! For sure on Chicago PD and Law and Order just last week for sure I heard it!!
It’s not necessary...what happened to the FCC over seeing what we are to hear and see on TV and radio? I guess the F word is next to be okay to hear as a regular vocabulary word! Not mine!!

No wonder there are kids killing, robbing, raping innocent people. The subject matter and language adults are allowed to use on television set a poor example for young people. I am horrified!!!! I am a grand mother and just keep turning the chanel. It's a crime. Shame on the producers and the FCC

I love Chicago Med but I am no longer going to watch it because they have used the Lords name in vain. Is it really necessary to say God ####? As a Christian this offends me.
I emailed NBC last year about them using the Lord's name in vain on there tv shows. Chicago Med, Chicago PD,This Is Us, Law and Order to name a few. They emailed back saying they would take my suggestion thatAs it's not necessary and they shouldn't do that. It's worsening and I doubt if it was ever considered. As Christians I believe we should stop watching these shows and spread the word? Also, email nbc. I'm not good at Facebook and other ways to communicate this so, if anyone knows how to communicate this,please do so. Boycott their sponsors, only problem is you'll have to watch the show to see who they are.
Would it be possible to stop using Jesus Christ as a swear word, g-****
As a swear word to make a ‘point?
Here is an idea...
How about using one of over 150,000 words in the dictionary that are available.
I’m a Christian woman. I’m disgusted by every show, movie I watch takes the Lords name in vain!!!! In general conversation, producers don’t even consider it profanity!! Whenever my husband and I watch a movie or tv show someone always uses the G-d orJ C words.WHY ! Is this necessary? We turn off more shows than we watch because of this!!! Get it cleaned up before everyone canceles tv plans
We teach our children to live by the ten commandments. Protestant,Jehovah's"Catholic.....everyone knows not to use GOD'S name in vain !!!!!
WHY......WHY !!!! Does the industry allow late-night guests
to use such satanic language????? We are SHOCKED and INSULTED that one of kimmels guests use the Lord's name in vain ! THREE times !!!!!! SHAME on ANY Christian for talking in such a
manner . Shame on their
Many movies assumed to be good watching material like Leap Year and Sweet Hone Alabama etc have become so offensive movies in that the use of the name of Jesus repeatedly in vain!!! You sure don’t hear any use of allah in vain! Shame on our television industry. Horrible. I cringe when I hear this.

I have stopped watching favorite shows now. Using Jesus Christ name as profanity is not acceptable to me. Watching animal planet and NatgeoWild.
What really should happen is more descriptive warnings of content.To include Bad Language,Blasphemy,********** Content,*** scenes and nudity etc...so viewers can decide not to watch or watch.
Some shows are showing pedophiles...
Hollywood most definitely the ***** of Revelations.
I have had to stop watching so many shows that I am really enjoying because they keep taking the Lord's name in vain. Is there any kind of technology that can bleep that out on shows you're trying to watch.
Kobe. You are ignorant. You seem uneducated and unaware that the first commandment is the beginning of all things and the downward spiral of civilization. And maybe having OCD isn't the most terrible thing in the world in moderation. This world is so topsy turvy already that all it needs are ignorant people that think that the world doesn't need some order to go by. I always love it when some fool has to put his views before a post so that we can see what the people of this world are turning into. Where are the God loving people if the world who respect and honor his name. Shame on you Kobe. Weren't you taught that if you don't have something nice to say, then shut your mouth.
I actually recoil when they use the Lord's name in vain. It is the first commandment and while I don't go to church I am a Christian. They bleep out the f bomb and other expletives that don't even matter to me but they think their getting something across when they use the Lord's name. I've stopped watching programs where using just **** would be more than enough but no they have to go too far and use God's name in vain. Don't the actors feel guilty at all? Couldn't they be brace enough to ask for a script change that wouldn't change the directive at all. They'd still make their point with plain "****". Come on people wake up! This is exactly where the world starts revealing its ugly colors and starts abusing one commandment after another. I could go on and on but this is just a comment.
I agree! The worst is the use of profanity in prime time viewing and the use of God's name in vain! Society's attitude has become a total disgrace with no respect in any regard. Why do they have to use profanity anyway, gone are the days when you could watch TV or see a movie with no offensive language, that was entertainment!

We who believe in Jesus should never support any movie company or tv station that uses Jesus name in vain or Gods.....
We as a nation are so sensitive to offending Muslums yet we allow TV to blaspheme the name of JESUS on a daily basis, shame on us ! Our we truly a Christian nation ? Using God's Name in vein offends millions of viewers,stop allowing Christians to be persecuted over public airways !
In a day and time where we have to be so politically correct I can't believe that using the Lord's name in vein on television is acceptable. God has been taken out of our schools and as a country we are giving way to people because prayer offends them. We can all live together regardless of our beliefs. We have to give and take. I believe that we should not say God's name in vein and I wish we could put a stop to it on t.v. I could care less if other profanities are used. Please put an end to using God's name in vein on t.v.
