To: DSTv Subscribers

Following the victory of viewers stopping DSTv from broadcasting pornography because it is harmful to children we want to stop DSTv from broadcasting religious content as well.

The reason is that religious content is very harmful for children if they view it.
• It distorts their view of reality.
• It makes them condemn other people.
• It erodes their skills of reasoning and asking for proof before they believe things.
• It instills hate inside them towards people they see as non-complaint with their religions rules.
• It will make them think it is OK to kill other people just because they are fans of a different religion.

This is a major problem and it is an even bigger threat than pornography because this content gets broadcast at all hours of the day. You can also not restrict viewing to it since it is consider safe for all ages!

Please support this petition and help us stop the broadcast of religious content. We need to raise children that are tolerant towards others and not motivated to kill others for no reason at all.

Stop the broadcast of religious content on DSTv !

I'm with roux on this, full on. Not as a rebuttal to the anti-porn fiasco but rather that I do feel teaching kids religion is a form of abuse. Possibly the worst form! Young impressionable minds being brainwashed into religious dogma is for me pretty sick ****!

Erm... ok so there are others that agree with it?

I really thought it would be one of those petitions that nobody signs. But the comments on there are pretty valid and I am happy to see people respond to it.

I can think of a few other petitions we can start. Maybe- religion haters is not above criticism, let's ban religion haters from radio, TV etc because they teach our kids how to make fun of others and call them names? How about that one?

Yeah *******,

I have never hated, condemned or thought it OK to kill others because of my religion.

It has only taught me consideration and respect towards others.

Dude, most kids these days don't even need TV to come in contact with bad things. There's their phones, radio, other people etc etc. If you want to ban religion, you might as well ban everyting else that is bad for young, impressionable minds. Ban alchohol, ban sex, ban condoms, ban violence on TV, ban gory movies, ban porn, ban everything that gets a vote from 8 people saying its bad.

Seriously, wake up and rather teach your kids good values yourselves and teach them
that they shouldn't believe everything everyone tells them, because face it, the world is a crappy place and everyone is out there for themselves it seems.

Finally a petition worth signing.

It's about time people started to wake up to the dangers of religion.

I can promise these people now - many more people have died on the hands of religion, than have as a result of sexual abuse.
Assuming that Christian group's idea that porn leads to sexual abuse is correct (which is questionable in itself but we'll assume correct), then I can only imagine the horrors as a result of kids starting to watch and listen to these religious nutters.

Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking. That's what these guys would say to us! Dammit man. :mad: "If you don't like the porn, then don't watch it." Well, follow your own advice then!

To quote all those pro-porn movie people... no one's forcing you to watch it, change the channel if you don't like it and sthu. ;)

This is pointless. Multichoice's decisions are based on economic interest. Who is going to give them the money that these channels bring in? Are you guys going to give them the subs they will lose out when they cancel these channels. Don't be stupid. It's about money, not social pressure.

I agree that DStv and even SABC should not have religious programing but for different reasons. Firstly, I can't stand my Sunday morning viewing being comprised of mostly quires singing praises in languages I don't understand, new age healing programs that are just plain idiotic and religious zealots fear mongering sermons. Secondly, I would rather have a choice to teach my kids religion rather then have it force fed to them through the TV. I mean who wants to explain to a 5 year old why the cross man on TV is telling everyone that we are all condemned to hell, especially if you don't believe in hell.
