The Hunger Games: To view or not to view

Well, when I posted on Facebook that I was horrified about the amount of media gloss that's being slicked over the child-killing-child horror film (opening tomorrow) called "The Hunger Games," I was surprised and saddened at the response.  Most of my friends were going to see the movie.  Some of my friends agreed with me.  And a few of my friends basically told me I would feel differently if I had read the books.

Today I looked at the standards of the church regarding entertainment and the media, at and found this:

"Choose wisely when using media because whatever you read, listen to, or look at has an effect on you. Select only media that uplifts youSatan uses media to deceive you by making what is wrong and evil look normal, humorous, or exciting. He tries to mislead you into thinking that breaking God’s commandments is acceptable and has no negative consequences... Do not attend, view, or participate in anything that is vulgar, immoral, violent, or pornographic in any way. Do not participate in anything that presents immorality or violence as acceptable. Have the courage to walk out of a movie, change your music, or turn off a computer, television, or mobile device if what you see or hear drives away the Spirit."
