“It is very unreasonable to suppose that exposure to profanity, nudity, sex, and violence has no negative effects on us. We can’t roll around in the mud without getting dirty. It is a concern that some of our young Latter-day Saints, as well as their parents, regularly watch R-rated and other inappropriate movies and videos. One more reason why the ‘devil laugheth, and his angels rejoice’ (Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi 9:2).”
Joe J. Christensen, Ensign Magazine “The Savior is Counting on You” (Salt Lake City, UT: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, November 1996), 40.
