All audio visual media might be a stumbling block, if the programs presented are offensive to the audience; for they will have their impact on the personality, whether on thinking or behaviour or on the interior feelings and emotions.

Likewise, all sources of thought, whether books, magazines, newspapers, pamphlets, leaflets etc... These might be a stumbling block if they have a bad effect on people's thoughts, feelings and behaviour and lead them

onto a path which is harmful to them and to the community.

Someone once said: 'Tell me what you read, and I'll tell you who you are.'

To these words I add; the matter is not confined only to what you read, but it extends also to what you see and what you hear. Cassettes, television and video may have a dangerous effect on people, as well as cinema films and plays, most of which may be a stumbling block.

We should then be careful regarding all this whether with respect to ourselves or our children.
