Rules for avoiding Bad Books, Films, Magazines, Internet, Etc.

The institutional Church has, in some respects, revealed itself to be an abusive parent - to the extend that it protected abusers for decades. I know the rhetoric in defense of Church action too, but let's call a spade a spade at least amongst ourselves.

There is no way the institutional Church can presume to offer unilateral moral judgements anymore. And that seems to be what many people, and are disappointed not to find.

That paternalistic instinct twisted into something controlling and cold was aberrant, and the further we move away from it the better. Our conscience formed by correct teaching is the first port of call.
