Should Christians watch Glee?

Jack Wilkie has written before on this site, but will now become a regular contributor with a weekly post concerning cultural matters.  You can read more of Jack’s writing at his personal blog (click here).

Over the last year, Fox’s show Glee has become a cultural phenomenon. Not only has it taken over the television, but it has also dominated America’s iPods through its musical releases. The show’s die-hard fans (“Gleeks”) come out in full force on Facebook and Twitter every Tuesday night. Everybody is talking about Glee, but at the same time, nobody is talking about the show’s dark side.

Glee has already aired some very controversial episodes, including one entitled “Grilled Cheesus.” In that particular episode, one of the characters has a grilled cheese with an image of Jesus burned into it. He prays to it, calls it his “cheesy lord,” and decides that the sandwich has given him a direct line to God when his (immoral) prayers are answered. Atheistic quotes abound – “Asking someone to believe in a fantasy, however comforting, isn’t a moral thing to do. It’s cruel.” God is “like Santa Claus for adults.” God is an “evil dwarf” and a “great spaghetti monster in the sky.” In addition to the atheism, many Glee episodes have addressed homosexuality. One of the characters has come out of the closet and developed a crush on a few of the other male characters. Any show that is willing to go so far to develop homosexual themes can’t be trusted to present heterosexual relationships in a positive light either. I don’t watch the show, but I would say it’s a pretty safe bet that every single episode will put some kind of non-Christian theme or idea on your television.

Despite all of this, the ratings haven’t suffered. Many Christians continue to watch the show. The atheistic attitudes depicted on Glee are more than enough to make any Christian change the channel, and that’s not even including the immoral themes. As I looked up reviews on the show, I found a youth ministry blog where one commenter gave three reasons why it’s ok for Christians to watch Glee – 1) You’ll love the music. 2) It opens the door for discussion on some topics. 3) Sue Sylvester (a teacher on the show) is hilarious. I’m sorry, but good music and funny quotes don’t justify watching sin and disrespect to God. As for the other reason, we don’t need to observe sin to have discussions about it. Good parents will do that through the Bible, not the TV. Bottom line, what conclusion should we draw about Glee? Christians CAN NOT watch Glee. Any show that goes out of its way to disrespect God and glorify sin should not be on your television. Turn it off.

  1. We shouldn’t overthink it and try to rationalize it. It’s a simple answer. Don’t watch it. Turn it off. Period.

  2. Response to Facebook comments on the blog –
    The Bible presents one as good and one as bad. On television they put it out there as “just the way it is.” It is perfectly “normal” for our lives to be surrounded with homosexuals, teens “going too far” and people blaspheming God. While it may be a fact that we are surrounded by those things, it doesn’t make them right and it doesn’t make them normal. Just because the show has “good music” and funny quotes doesn’t give any Christian license to sit through blasphemy of God. That was intentionally written into the script. You can’t get around the fact that the show is packed with immoral, inappropriate themes and quotes. It all comes down to whether or not you’re willing to sacrifice your entertainment for God.

  3. In doing more research on the show, I’ve come across a Time magazine article that says the show breaks nearly every one of the 10 commandments at one point. It also points out that the Christian character is a girl who preaches celibacy but ends up pregnant by one guy while blaming another. Not only does the show blaspheme God and depict immorality, it paints Christians as self-righteous hypocrites. If you aren’t offended by this as a Christian, you really need to rethink what you take pride in. If we have truly put on Christ, anything that is disrespectful towards Him should be disgusting to us.

  4. You truly believe a loving God will see someone as not a Christian because they watch a tv show? This is sickening. This is the sort of thing that makes people look at Christians as hypocrites and being full of hatred.

  5. @Sam Beam, I don’t think the questions is whether or not God may “see someone as not a Christian because they watch a tv show.” The question is would a Christian – a Christ lover – watch and enjoy a show that hates Christ? What if I were watching a show that mocked and ridiculed my husband? What if it made me laugh? What if the show mocked everything that my husband believes in and stands for? Years ago I read a quote in Think Magazine that just rocked my world and has stayed with me all of these years: “How dare we be entertained by the things that send Jesus to the cross.” How can I enjoy a show that mocks my savior and ridicules Him. How can I enjoy a show that glorifies the very things he bled and died for? That’s the real question.

  6. The girl that got pregnant still believes in God. She makes mistakes. Are you perfect? This show is LIFE. It represents those struggling with sin and those who don’t even acknowledge sin. I should stop watching a show because it prepares me for the real world of evangelism? Pathetic.

    Sam,

    I appreciate you stopping by the site and leaving your opinion. I do think so far you have been strong in rhetoric, but somewhat weak in argument. If you don’t mind would you share with the group why you think it would be okay.

    As to the evangelism thing. Let’s get real for a minute. Glee is not real life. And I would strongly disagree that it prepares us for evangelism.

    Shawnele,

    Thanks for stopping by. And for the plug of Think Magazine, my wife works for Focus Press who publishes think.

  8. “You truly believe a loving God will see someone as not Christian for watching a TV show?”
    I don’t know, it depends on what is on the TV show. You truly believe a loving God will see someone as not Christian for listening to terrible music? What about pornography?
    Also, what does “a loving God” have to do with it? So He’s loving – that means He’ll let you slide on the “little sins” and “guilty pleasures”? I think this is less about God’s love for us and more about our love for Him. If you aren’t instantly disgusted by a show that calls God “an evil dwarf” you don’t have the proper respect for His Holiness.

  9. Your argument about the show being anti-God and the quotes you use to support this are from one, single episode. That episode was about how kid’s dad is in the hospital and he feels angry and alone in the world. The rest of the episode is about the other kids introducing him to different types of prayer and spirituality. Watch the episode, I don’t think you’ll go to hell for it. That represented as many opinions and spiritual influences as it could, not just atheism or Christianity. Research would do you some good, not just researching articles written about the show. That’s silly and lazy.

  10. Philippians 4:8
    Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things.

    ‘Glee’—–?

  11. I for one believe those quotes should be enough to turn ANY Christian away from the show. There is no reason to excuse an entire show that will put out such quotes. A detail I didn’t list was that the character prayed to his “Grilled Cheesus” that he would be able to touch his girlfriend’s breasts, and when he was “successful” he decided that he had a direct connection to God.
    If you want some more research, I’ll be glad to provide it.

    From the Madonna episode, 3 virgins decide that it’s time to finally sleep with somebody and so they go for it.
    In another episode, Sue Sylvester drugs the principal to blackmail him with sex. The show also uses d— h— and God’s name many times. Girls offer to make out with each other for the guys’ viewing pleasure. A married man makes out with multiple women.
    One of the girl characters has two gay dads and explains how normal and “cool” it is.

    There is nothing about this show that makes it excusable. When you have to climb over a mountain of disgusting, sinful, blasphemous themes to find some humor and good music, you’re looking in the wrong place.

  12. Ruth Atnip said it all. Excellent comment.

  13. Have never really watched the show, but I did watch the end of the Superbowl and when the Superbowl ended it switched over to an episode of what I learned to be Glee. The part I saw was a of girls with cupcake bikinis dancing around. I like cupcakes, and I like girls, lust of the flesh and lust of the eyes is condemned in Scripture. Since I didn’t want to put myself in a situation of temptation I changed the channel. Also I didn’t want my daughter and son who were also watching tv with me to see it.

    Yes I know it was a Katie Perry video spoof, but really should Christians like her stuff as well? I know it is catchy, but common, we know what the lyrics are actually saying.

    Let’s not be dumb, when it comes down to it, there is a lot of stuff that we watch (I am including myself) that in reality fills our minds with stuff that we shouldn’t fill it with.

  14. Thanks for proving that Christians are pathetic sheep.

  15. I assume you follow these Biblical verses, as well…

    DEUTERONOMY 22:13-21
    If it is discovered that a bride is not a virgin, the Bible demands that she be executed by stoning immediately.
    DEUTERONOMY 22:22
    If a married person has sex with someone else’s husband or wife, the Bible commands that both adulterers be stoned to death.
    MARK 10:1-12
    Divorce is strictly forbidden in both Testaments, as is remarriage of anyone who has been divorced.
    LEVITICUS 18:19
    The Bible forbids a married couple from having sexual intercourse during a woman’s period. If they disobey, both shall be executed.
    MARK 12:18-27
    If a man dies childless, his widow is ordered by biblical law to have intercourse with each of his brothers in turn until she bears her deceased husband a male heir.
    DEUTERONOMY 25:11-12
    If a man gets into a fight with another man and his wife seeks to rescue her husband by grabbing the enemy’s genitals, her hand shall be cut off and no pity shall be shown her.

  16. You brought forth nothing but Old Testament Law. I don’t see how that applies to this conversation. If you want to go by those things, let’s start sacrificing animals. If you don’t, there’s no point in you bringing it up. However, the New Testament (from which we learn how to be saved), speaks plainly against homosexuality (Romans 1, 1 Corinthians 6:9), fornication/adultery (Galatians 5:19), blasphemy (2 Tim 3:2).
    If you can’t see the sin and blasphemy that Glee so regularly displays, this conversation isn’t going anywhere. Can we agree that the things portrayed in Glee are sin, or not?

  17. Come on guys, we should all know that God isnt about quarreling over disputes especially those of us who are christians. Voice your opinion and present truth in love for your fellow man and remember Romans 14; and also Galatians 6. If a christian wants to watch a show that raises questions, present your opinion on the matter in truth and love for encouragement but dont hold it against the person. weather its sinful to watch is between the viewer and God.

  18. I don’t believe that’s true. Sin is sin. It’s not up to us. If someone is robbing banks, we don’t say “well, that’s between them and God as to whether or not it’s a sin.” If it’s a sin, it’s a sin for everyone. If it’s not, it’s not for anyone.

  19. I realize that’s not always the case, but it is in this instant.

  20. I’m converted!!!!

  21. Maybe rather than focusing on the show we should turn the magnifying glass back on ourselves and ask one simple question: Are the actions in my life carried out to please self or to please God? The answer to this question would quickly reveal whether we turn the tv on shows like Glee. So, is it all about you or Him?

  22. The Bible tells us how to find knowledge and how to understand it Isa 28:9-10 It is by precept on precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little. In the Old Testament there was not truth or grace John 1:17. The Bible is the book of the knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22. The word of God must be rightly divided 2 Tim 2:15.The bible says the Lord will create a new thing on the earth Jer 31:22 where a woman shall compass a man. This man is Satan Isa 14:16. A woman shall bruise Satan at the heel of time Gen 3:15. Satan has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9, until this bruise of the true word John 1:1 is delivered to the whole world Rev 12:5, 13 as a witness.The bruising of Satan is now taking place at http://minigoodtale.blogspot.com If you are one that loves the lord God with all your heart soul and mind and strive to live by every word of God you will want to read his true word.

  23. Hi, I am 14 years old… and yes you can call me a “Gleek”. I was searching whether or not I should watch Glee. Because lately, I’ve been trying to shift my life. I still have questions like “Should I listen to some secular music”..but thats beside the point. I have come to decide I want to stop watching Glee because of the points you proved. When I watch the show I don’t really think of what the people are saying. I became a real “Gleek” during the 2nd season. In all honestly I LOVE THE SHOW. But, if they are critizing God, the one person that has been with me my whole life…I’d rather just give up the show. It will be hard…it will be really hard. But I will be able to do it as long as God as by my side. Plus, all I’m doing now is not watching a show. I also have a question: What types of shows should a christian teenager watch? I don’t wanna watch things like “Spongebob”..i’m a little too old for that. I used to watch Jersey Shore, but then realized it wasn’t doing me any good. Well, I hope you answer my question. And THANK YOU so much for helping me see the truth! 😀

    Edith and others, there are so many other artistic sources that can fill your vessel. Be Brave. Be Different. You don’t need Glee. Remember, much of what the world applauds God Almighty abhores. Ignore the naysayers. God will direct your heart. IMHO, Glee is a trashy, disgusting show. IMHO Gaga and her ilk fit there too. Who cares if it depicts real life, as the supporters will say? Maybe Glee is simply promoting the very things we should be turning away from? There may be ‘real life’ in the show but that doesn’t mean we should embrace and applaud what it depicts. Serial killers have done horrific things to people, does that mean we should make ‘realistic’ films about such horrific things – then have the gaul to call it art? Rubbish. To all you who criticize and call Christians all kinds of names, we do not answer to you, we answer to God, so really, people like myself couldn’t care less what daggers you throw our way. Sure there are hypocrites, and yes, there are people who call themselves Christians who probably aren’t. Although such things can confuse non-Christians, to use such examples is like trying to say draw a parallel along these lines: well, non-Christians can be pedophiles and rapists, and embezzlers. It’s such a fruitless argument. If you feel a little dirty after watching something, then that is the Holy Spirit letting you know you’re hanging out in the wrong venue. It’s a good check – myself wholeheartedly included.

    Edith, instead of watching Glee, take that hour and use it to do something creative yourself. Have you ever considered joining a choir? The fact you are questioning Glee is an indication to me that God is protecting your heart. Take heed.

  25. Its me again… I hate to say it, but even after I said that very heartfelt paragraph…I watched it anyway. I know I need to stop.. but its sooooooo hard. I already am in a chorus, and don’t have much of ideas of things to do. Once u become hooked to something, it’s hard to stop.
    I just..I need help.
    🙁

    If you are sincere and not just playing games here Edith, I guess you have to decide who controls your mind. If you let life control your mind, you may end up living like a lemming. No one can make up your mind for you.

    Well, first of all, I’m a Christian.

    I really disagree with your opinion. First, if you criticize about Grilled Cheesus episode, I’m not sure you really watch that episode. It doesn’t tell us not to believe God. It doesn’t tell us to pray to a sandwich. In the end of story, it’s clear they tell that praying to the sandwich is pointless because it’s not God. Even a character also finally tell that we should believe in God, because life is too hard to live it alone or to depend something on this Earth.

    About the quotes, that just shows everyone’s opinions. What you write is only the quotes of some characters because they have bitterness in life. Why don’t you write good quotes from some other characters? In the same episode, a character also says “God never makes mistake. That’s what I believe.” If you really watch the episode, you can also find other good quotes about God.

    The truth is, you can’t judge it from your own perspective when you don’t have complete evidence.

    I think Glee is not bad. I know the characters on this story have many problems, such homosexuality. But it’s real. That’s the real world! The story doesn’t ask you to be a gay. It just shows you how their lives are. Glee shows you the real world: people with their flaws.

    I also don’t say this TV show is recommended for Christians. But watching the story shows you that many people still lost out there. They’re lost with their problems and they have to face all their problems. If you just focus on your Christianity, you’ll never know them and their lives. You never can help them. And they will still be lost forever because all Christians just care about Christian people. It’s terrible.

  28. @ Wilson Kanadi

    If a show with all this blasphemy is to win awards, and become so popular and you are a part of the problem and not the solution. You are helping make it more socially acceptable to sin. T.V shows do not depict reality, they create it. By making a show like this popular we are only going to increase the amount of homosexuals and atheist etc. in the world. Not to mention we can in no doubt find a better way to spend our time, is it no question at all that reading the bible, going out maybe cutting your neighbours lawn etc. would be a better less questionable act to glorify the name of god
    Putting all of this aside,
    you say
    “all Christians just care about Christian people. It’s terrible.”

    hmm being a Christian means Christ like, is this the way you think Christ is, he only loves Christians? that doesn’t even make sense, he loved all of us and that is why he died on the cross. I honestly care for all people in the world regardless of their religion and even if they hate Christians, religion and god (otherwise I wouldn’t be spending my time writing this right now). I only feel sorrow for the lost souls who are so far from god and are missing out on eternal life (in heaven). I hope anyone who reads this take a little advice from me when it comes to deciding weather or not something is sinful, it is obvious that things like fornication is sinful etc. and that giving to the poor is good. There is no doubt about both of those.

    But when you start to questions weather or not something is a sin, there is a really good chance there is a reason why your questioning it, and you have to remember that Satan is the master of deception and twisting things so that they seem justifiable. Psalm 101:3a ” I will set no worthless thing before my eyes”

    Another thing to think on is “Whatever is good, Whatever is right, Whatever is pure… Think on these things.” <<quote from the bible I can't remember where just google it and don't take my word for it, take GODS. Goodluck to everyone struggling with sin. Jesus be with you

  29. Glee is a show with just having an entertainment value. I laughed when one of the characters prayed to grilled cheese sandwich. Thats reality. Look how many people travel around the world to see a statue crying or a scum mark in the shower that looks like Jesus.People actually think its God giving them a sign. Its outlandish! However, its reality. Same as Homosexuality, its not what the bible teaches, however, In this world, its reality. I dont see that they are mocking God or Christianity at all. I think they show that God is a loving God. I’ll tell you why. Their is a character on the show ‘Mercedes’ she goes to church, she sings in the church choir. She never judges her friends for their beliefs, never preaches to them, instead she is there when the other kids need compassion, comfort, advice, a friend. She doesnt judge or criticize. She listens. She loves her friends. So their is a good rep for Jesus right on the show. Ya there is the whole homosexual theme going on there. But thats a small part of the show in reality. The show also shows the struggles of being gay and how hard it is to come to terms with it. That stuggle takes over their lives and consumes them. So its not glorifiying homosexuality at all. People who say there christians always puts a judgment on homosexuals and its not our place. We have to love them and see past there indescretions and look at the human being that God has created.

    I didn’t write the article about glee, one of my writers did. However, I do want to comment on your last few sentences. Calling sin, sin, and calling the sinner to repentance is loving and needs to be done.

  31. When watching the show and you feel that something isn’t right turn it off. It was really wrong about the grilled sandwich. But there are people who enjoy this and so be it. All of us have the freedom of choice, watch or don’t (watch). If someone or something offends us we avoid the person / situation. Do the same here and flip over to something more interesting and cool in addition to being appropriate. Cheers!

  32. You failed to mention that in the same episode you’re talking about, “Grilled Cheesus”, most of the characters are offended at the one who is saying those things about God. He is in a hard place in his life. He is a teenager, a homosexual, and his only living parent has just had a heart attack. A lot of the other characters on the show try to make him understand why they believe what they believe, one of them even takes him to her church, to make him believe. They show other characters praying for his sick father. This show does not only represent Atheism.
    Also, what is wrong with listening to someone else’s beliefs? We live in a world where not everyone believes the same thing. What is wrong with educating ourselves by listening how others feel, as wrong as we think they sound?

  33. I am from Mexico I love this TV but now I think is not good watch, the only thing that saddens me is to leave my favorite band, because I have not found a group that I like as much as this, so now I start to accept suggestions of music, if you want to recommend something, thanks

  34. Except that you forget that every single character other then 2 characters on that show are Christians and talk about god in a glorifying manner throughout that whole episode, and in many others. and what goes on on that show IS what is happening in high school, and even in some middle schools, whether we like it or not. and i agree with what julie said. but something that ticks me off, you all state that homosexuality should be condemned. well, God said that no sin is greater then another in his eyes. And they state at the end, that the character with the “grilled cheesus” was wrong about what he did. i do not believe that it’s a sin to watch this show, or to be a “gleek” like you seem to put it.

  35. Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

  36. You must stop watching Glee immediately. How do you expect us to make money at the Church if you keep watching shows like Glee? We need you to stay dumb and ignorant, so we can afford our lavish and expensive lifestyle.

  37. I’ve been a Christian my whole life, and I now refuse to watch most TV. I can find hardly any good, pure shows. If anyone has a suggestion, can you tell me?

  38. I find it very funny how many people call themselves Christian and talk about following the bible, yet when it comes to the things in the Old Testament that you think are crazy then its okay not to follow them. That is called being a hypocrite. I am Christian and it’s you Christians that give us, the ones who actually care about other’s and go try to help people instead of complaining about a tv show and worrying about yourselves, a bad name. In Revelations God says that you will be judged for the good things you have done on earth as well as the bad. I would suggest that you stop complaining about a TV show, which by the way is just a show, and go out and actually make a difference.

  39. Okay…what shows AM I allowed to watch as a Christian? Just the religion or learning channels? What if I want to be actually entertained? Please give me something that is as much fun to watch as Glee.

  40. I actually agree with the writter of this article. Of course that, even as christians, we can decide whether to watch this show or not. However, that doesnt change the fact that it contains many harmful thoughts, comments and characthers, and its mind opening pretensions hide many ideologic subjects (materialism, sexuality issues, relativism, and so on) that easily get to anyone that watches this show.

    I dont think its ok to watch something that is mostly against your values: It can make you doubt if you dont pay attention, and prepares you to accept some matters (by getting used to them) instead of showing desagreement. Even if its sometimes funny. Besides, nowadays many people get the idea of being cool after behaving like egocentrics (Rachel, Mercedes) or like a total bully (Sue). By the way, Sue is so ridicoulously intolerant, racist and offensive that she should have been banned like years ago. It seems to me that people dont care because they think that joking makes it ok.

  41. Sorry about the grammar, by the way. Foreign speaker.

  42. Missy, I read your comment about homosexuality, and its a part of being a christian to recognize any unproper use of sexuality (in this case, against nature) as wrong. We will always disagree with them: because values like dignity, life, respect, and proper sexuality are the same to all humans. So its not about being judgy or mean, its just saying that even if the person “had some reasons”, like falling inlove (gays), or i dont know, having a dark past (drugs or whatever) a sin is a sin because it goes against god, the others and themselves.

    So, we can tollerate homosexuals (not hate them, talk to them, even try to become friends sometimes). That doesnt mean we wont speak against their lifestyle. Wouldnt you say something e.g. if you have an alcoholic friend? That what a real friend does. Some people, on the other hand, act like jerks.

  43. Okay, will someone please explain to me how being gay equates to being an alcoholic? I don’t understand how you can go around saying that God is merciful and loving, and we’re all God’s children and whatnot, and then say something as ignorant as ‘proper sexuality’. Just because you don’t understand someone’s way of life doesn’t make it improper. If your neighbor wants to kiss guys, so be it! It’s not up to you to say what is ‘proper’ for other people.

    And, yes, you can ‘tolerate’ gay people, and bisexual people, and transgender people, and other sexual minorities, but that doesn’t make you a ‘good Christian’ or a saint, it makes you a decent person. Having a dark past doesn’t make people gay, people are gay because God made them that way. Just like he made all of you. So, yes, dignity, respect, kindness, those are all great values that every person should try to uphold, but there is no such thing at a ‘proper’ lifestyle. God is supposed to love every human being, accept us for who we are, and forgive us for our mistakes

    I congratulate Glee for not being afraid to stand up against ignorance and hate, and for giving kids and teens and even adults amazing role models to look up to.

  44. First off: I am not Christian. I am not religious, but for the sake of honest debate and personal curiosity I am interested in this topic, and your views as followers of Christ.

    The world I have been raised in taught me to respect all kinds of religion. However, I ask you kindly not to take any of this personally, nor blame any of what I have to say on naivety. I am fully aware of what I am saying, and I most certainly am not questioning your beliefs.

    Although this topic deals with the TV show ‘Glee’, a lot of your comments (I have read each and every one of them, yes) are centered around other topics, such as hypocrisy and whether or not to have any faith in the teachings of the Old Testament, etc.

    Right off the bat – homosexuality; being sexually attracted to people of one’s own sex. I have a friend who is homosexual, and she is an amazing human being, flesh and bone, and as a follower of equal rights, I would never think to question this person for her personal activities and interests. I value kindness, honesty, understanding and justice above all else. So I ask you: are we [the non-believers] deluded for not being followers of God? Is she deluded for having her own beliefs and values, even though they digress from your own? Example: I prefer tea over coffee. Does anyone have a problem with this? Anyone? Say my neighbor is African-American, not White. Problem? My friend is gay, not straight. Issue? My mother is Christian, not Islamic. Does anyone in this world have a problem with it? I don’t. She’s not mentally retarded, or sick. She’s my mom, and I am proud to say she has the insight to support me and my views in life, as well. Even when they digress from her own.

    I feel ‘blessed’ to say I have been born into a generation where the world is changing and people are very tolerant of one another. True Christian or not, supporting one another, caring for one another and placing faith in other PEOPLE is a common value none of you should ever have to think twice about. We’re human.

    Bottom line, if you want to watch Glee, watch Glee. Enjoy it. Even I am not that fond of the show, but if you like it, what’s holding you back? Is it the coffee or the tea? There is a lot worse on TV, and it is no secret Glee constantly brings up issues that are bound to make you roll your eyes and change the channel. I like that about it. I feel closed-minded shutting myself off from the way someone or something (in this case a popular TV show) presents itself.

    So to all you Christians, here’s my bottom line. If you want to watch it, then go watch it. It doesn’t make you any less Christian choosing tea over coffee (am I wrong?). As long as you know–from the bottom of your heart–that you believe, value and treasure God above else, be proud of that! But don’t ever let it pull you back. Life’s too short. <3

  45. Christians shouldn’t watch immoral TV shows because it pollutes our minds with muck and our minds and bodies should be put to good use. The Bible shows us that in the end times there will be a clear distinction between the Godly and the wicked. Christians are told to meditate on lovely things so if a TV show you see is not lovely then don’t get a taste for it.

  46. I’m not a Christian myself, and I’m not trying to be biased here but shouldn’t Atheist people to be allowed to voice their opinons to the world just as much as Christians? I respect your religion but I personally think that there are so many TV shows that are a lot worse than Glee. Atheism should be respected just as much as Christianity, of course you don’t have to agree with it. All Glee is is a TV show with a non-christian perspective, and maybe you should accept that not everyone is a Christian. Although I’m not one myself, I thought that the main values of Christianity were to help others, to be kind and forgiving, not to oppress everything for not having the same values, or to insult people for merely being who they are. I also just think it’s really cool that everyone has a different idea of how the universe began, and I hope that there will be a day when whatever religion you are, or whether you’re not religious at all, we can all just get along together. I am really truly sorry if this offends you in anyway, but I hope you can all respect my opinion just as I respect yours.
