Southern Baptist Convention

WHEREAS, Southern Baptists are concerned with the moral tone of much of television programming, and

WHEREAS, It is our belief that television, being a public medium, should act with corporately responsible citizenship.

Therefore, be it RESOLVED, That we call upon the television networks, local stations, and sponsors to demonstrate their concern about the moral tone of their programming in a positive and visible way, and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we urge Southern Baptist churches and individuals to express corporately and individually to the networks, stations, and sponsors their objections to programs that present immorality as acceptable, and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we also urge local churches and individuals to express their objections to programs that endorse actions and decisions which disregard the dignity and sacredness of persons, and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we urge our people to be good stewards of their money, and to make a conscientious commitment to support those sponsors which demonstrate a concerted effort to support clean, constructive, wholesome, family-oriented programming, and

Be it finally RESOLVED, That the Christian Life Commission continue to provide materials and information to Southern Baptist churches and individuals to equip them to take specific action on this matter.
