Forty-two years ago, this statement was made in General Conference: “Many of the recommended reading lists of our public schools would have been classified as unacceptable less than a generation ago . . . Perhaps we should all become a lot more interested in what the school is recommending and making available to our children."

Did you notice this was quoted from 42 years ago!!!! Has it gotten any better? No way!
One friend had said once that things like Harry potter are just pure fun, she called it brain candy. Which got me questioning, what kind of treats do I want to feed my mind with?
Don't things like pornography, substance abuse, and adultery all begin somewhere small?
That "brain candy" is what begins us on a downward path, opening those doors that allow us to "have a little fun" is what leads to great sin!
Thoughts to ponder!
