it seemed consistent with the cult-ish behavior that we've seen thus far.  They are only allowing the children to be exposed to certain types of entertainment (if any)-  starving them from the rest of society, so they can feed them only doctrine that supports their way of thinking.
i know this probably wasn't meant to be funny, but i think you can appreciate my thoughts when i read it.  it reminds me of how we, as parents, monitor our own kids tv shows/who they play with/etc and teach them what we want them to know and believe.  lol.  are we cult-ish?

We definitely filter & shelter, but recognize the need for balance in exposing them to broader experiences & ideas so they can grow to be rational, intelligent, productive, sensitive, & productive members of society.

Good point, though, LB.  lol
