Angus T Jones' family fear brainwashing

2012-11-28 11:29
Los Angeles - Angus T Jones' family and friends are worried he has been brainwashed, reports E! News.

Those close to the Two And A Half Men actor, who apologised on Wednesday for blasting the show as "filth" and urging viewers not to watch it in a video for Forerunner Chronicles, a church which is part of the Seventh-day Adventist movement, fear he will give away his vast wealth to the religious group.

"His mom is really worried and in contact with the producers of the show. The main concern is that he is going to give away all his money to the church," a source told E! News.

"It's like he's been brainwashed. Everyone is shocked and very concerned."

Angus currently earns $350 000 per episode.

Deep Christian values

The 19-year-old actor, who has been on the show since he was nine, claimed it contradicts his deep Christian values and he wants to quit.

"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," he said.

"Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it's just entertainment. 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.

"If I am doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan... You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show," Jones continued his rant.

    who cares, this is not Christianity it is called a cult

      nick.l.wallace - 2012-11-28 12:33

      christianity is a cult isnt it look what its done to this poor guy

      louis.mare - 2012-11-28 12:52

      Nick in my personal opinion christianity for me is a personal relationship with God and Jesus, it is not a relationship with a church. I am part of a church to grow as a christian and common sense must prevail if a church is asking you to give all your money. Just my opinion.

      marko.geldenhuys.5 - 2012-11-28 13:17

      Same difference, Louis. A 'personal relationship' with a non-existent man in the sky is just as deluded.

      Cult: -Controls money of its members (Check, tithes) -Preoccupation with its members' sex lives (Check, need I even say more?) -Seeks to insulate its members from normal society (Check, "We are in the world, but not of it.") -Seeks to destroy relationships (Check, "And brother shall rise against brother; and son against father...") -Demonises people who are not part of the cult (Check, they are all worthy of death. Other religions are idols to demons. The Lord commits genocide agains them (Canaanites, Noah's Ark, Egyptians in Exodus, Sodom and Gomorrah etc.)) -Makes promises of a utopia (CHECK, can any idea have so ensnared the imagination of mankind?)

    When has extreme religion ever caused any unnecessary problems? pfft!

    Don't watch Two and a Half Men not out of any Christian beliefs, I don't watch it simply because it is not really funny. Give me Big Bang Theory anyday

      marko.geldenhuys.5 - 2012-11-28 13:18

      Big Bang Theory is horribly unfunny.

      boom.afridi.56 - 2012-11-28 18:29

      two and half men is the funniest show on tv and way better with ashton than with charlie.

    Surely he can do what he wants with his $$$s. Family are like anc government only worried about their gravy train

      shaun.mossop.3 - 2012-11-28 12:55

      No way he is throwing away his hard earned money, this is a decision he will regret later, his family are only looking out for him.

    omg ... seriously - who the hell cares! Who gives a crap about this ugly little dude? It's not as if he would ever get another part anywhere else anyway!

  • Johannvw13 - 2012-11-28 14:52

    But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more.

  • dave.ducker.3 - 2012-11-28 15:04

    Perhaps its the $350k / episode that is preventing him from jumping ship or perhaps himself and Charlie were sharing the "snow"? you don't bite the hand that feeds you ! but I would say what ever his beliefs are his beliefs doesn't matter if I think he's a complete nutcase! as long as it doesn't harm me or anyone else I don't care what he does with his cash or life ;)

      Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-28 22:23

      It could harm others though. His colleagues and crew could possibly lose their jobs when he causes the show to lose its ratings so badly that it gets cancelled.

    I think Angus earns to much money and has taken to blabbing to get media attention. I dont watch the new Two and Half Men as the story line is weak and acting poor. One thing for this program is that there's no violence which cannot be said for 90% of todays TV.

  • jayson.aspeling - 2012-11-28 18:40

    You know, there are people who hate on things they have no idea about, before you hate on the Bible read it, don't just Google things about it and don't just copy paste nonsense, study the Bible and prove it wrong then. And also I see Johannvw13 has watched zeitgust and that video has you fooled because what they have done is fooled you with deceptive truth, the religious part is nonsense and the rest truth, making you automatically asume truth to it all. I say big ups to the boy, and just btw yes there are many churches out there that have it all wrong and use God's money for themselves but that shouldn't shock anyone if they read the bible because the Bible warns us of everything... Try and study the Bible properly and then say your say

      polya314 - 2012-11-28 20:12

      I was raised in an evangelical church. I've read the Bible. KJV, NIV, and NLT. I did Bible study every week as well as having Bible study with my parents every evening. I know the Bible; I would venture that I know it probably better than you do. There is no faster way to atheism than reading the Bible, not even learning about evolution converts you that quickly.

      Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-28 21:17

      Or maybe Johannvw13 just watched George Carlin, or read some books by any of a countless number of people who have snapped out of their religion-induced delusion.

  • jayson.aspeling - 2012-11-28 18:42

    Zeitgust has you fooled

  • Chantelle Michael - 2012-11-28 19:29

    marko, u have absolutely no idea what u are talking about. how dare u call God 'non existent' ? if u dont believe in the truth then u are the one whose delusional.

      Bob.Cee123 - 2012-11-28 21:31

      Are you old enough to be using Mommy & Daddy's internets? Why not enlighten us with your advanced theology......

      marko.geldenhuys.5 - 2012-11-29 15:57

      This coming from someone who watches Jersey Shore.

  • niki.wessels - 2012-11-30 09:14

    I wonder... if he gives his "tainted" money to the church, will they accept it?
