    ‘Two and a Half Men’ Star Risks Career to Tell Truth

    November 30, 2012
    By Ben Shapiro

    This week, Angus T. Jones, who plays teenager Jake on the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men, told the truth about the show on which he is featured: it harms American culture. Jones, who has become a believing Christian, cut a video for Forerunner Christian Church in which he stated, “If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men. I’m on Two and a Half Men, and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it, and filling your head with filth.” Jones made the point that television has a marked impact on how people think, feel, and shape their own values. “Do some research on the effects of television and your brain,” he urged, “and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television.”

    The blowback has been immediate from the left. It’s one thing for Charlie Sheen to go completely insane, hook up with two willing ladies, and then do a drunken tour on which he repeats the word “winning” ad infinitum. It’s quite another for a young man to express the Christian view of much of the trash on television.

    So instead of focusing on Jones’ message – an eminently true one – the left is calling him crazy. E! Online ran a piece today suggesting that Jones’ church membership actually made him a cult member:

    I heard all about this....and at the same time....Charlie Sheen said he thinks the show is cursed.
    My goodness tho......that young lad.....with a name of Angus.......has been on that show for years, I watched him grow up.
    He was a small wee little man, then now, he is all grown up!!!
    Who knows why he said what he said...he was prolly talking out his ass.
    I personally.....like the show Two & Half Men......but I like it best with Charlie Sheen.....not with Ashton Kutcher, it's not the same.
    But reruns are on every night here, I have DirecTv...and I can laugh at almost every episode.
    Granted, it's more for mature audiences......but I do enjoy the show~
    Evidently millions of other people did too.......the show was a hit...still is!

    I always enjoyed the show when Charlie was on it...no, it's not the same at all with Kutcher. Sheen may be a nut job, but he is very funny and he makes the show! Now for "Angus"...I'm not sure what to make of his statement, but if it's how he feels and if it's because of his Christianity or whatever religion, then that should be ok too. It's how HE feels and believes, that's his right and shouldn't be put down for what he believes......

    Truth? To you maybe.

    I've watched that crappy show a handfull of times and found zero merit to that. 30 minutes of time you'll never get back.

    I bet he didn't complain when he took their money.

    I don't see how saying all of this makes him honest. Everyone knows most sitcoms are garbage. It's not like he attained a moment of zen.

    Where did i say "Truth"?
    And sometimes it's fun to watch a stupid show....
    If a person can't relax, have a sense of humor and have fun sometimes, they turn out like you. :)

    Playing a dumb kid on the show is not too much of a stretch for him.
