‘Two and a Half Men’ star calls show ‘filth,’ urges fans to stop watching

HOLLYWOOD, November 27, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – A star of the third highest rated program on television says he wants out of the show for which he reportedly earns $350,000 per episode – and he’s urging viewers to tune out his show, as well.
Angus T. Jones plays Jake, the son of Jon Cryer’s character on Two and a Half Men, a program the star now calls “filth.”
“If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching it and filling your head with filth,” Jones said in a video detailing his conversion to Christianity. “Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television – especially with what you watch.”
The show, which starred rehab dropout Charlie Sheen for eight seasons, revolved around the sexual exploits of a jingle writer, his loser brother (Cryer), and his adoring nephew (Jones). Sheen was subsequently replaced with Ashton Kutcher.
“So far this season there have been jokes about men wearing women’s underwear, sexually transmitted diseases, prostitution, threesomes, the size of Walden [Kutcher]’s genitals, and how much Alan masturbates,” the Parents Television Council reports. “Walden is shown nude with his private areas pixilated.”
Parents Television Council President Tim Winter urged Jones to “work from within the entertainment industry” to “raise standards to improve television content.”
But the young star has other plans. ““I don’t want to be on it,” he said in his video, which insiders say took the Hollywood moguls by surprise.
“I don’t want to contribute to the enemy’s plan,” he said resolutely. “You cannot be a true, God-fearing person and be on a television show like that.”
Jones, 19, makes $350,000 per episode but will not be in the next two episodes.The series’ producers call his absence a coincidence.
The rare rejection of Hollywood’s abuse of sexuality was triggered by Jones’ conversion, which he detailed in two internet videos.
Although he attended a private Christian school, he said he drifted further from God as he aged, experimenting with “weed” as a high school junior and LSD a year later. Then a friend of a friend asked him to attend church – on a Saturday morning.
“I was looking to go to an all-black church,” Jones said, because he liked black Gospel music.
When he entered the church, he felt that his friend, Moses, had led him to his own Promised Land.
The pastor’s message was “tailor-made for me…my life, what I need to do, the answers, everything,” Jones stated.
The pastor began to instruct him in the denomination’s Bible study. Jones also contacted Christopher Hudson of the Forerunner Chronicles through a friend.
Hudson is an outspoken critic of President Barack Obama and his implementation of the homosexual lobby’s political agenda.
Hudson belongs to the Seventh Day Adventist church, which observes Saturday as the Sabbath day of worship instead of Sunday. While largely pro-life, the denomination’s official guidelines allow abortion in cases of “severe congenital defects” or if the child were conceived through rape or incest.
Jones’ future with the high-rated, high-paying series – or Hollywood in general – remains unknown.
For now, he is basking in the joy of his new spiritual life.
“Everyday I get to be a part of what God’s doing in this world,” he said.
“If I’m not doing His work,” he said, “God could take me now.”
