There's a cartoon on Netflix I want to watch called "Kipo and the Age of the Wonderbeasts".  It's critically acclaimed and said to have fantastic writing.  However, there's a subplot revolving around the main character being gay, and in season 2, he even gets a kiss on the cheek from a boy.  Is a show like this okay to watch, as long as I skip the junk and get to the overarching plot?

I say no.

You are giving validity to the entire story line if you do.

No matter wher you watch it. computer or tv they have a way to measure how many have viewed it... just like nightly news shows know who had the highest ratings.

But that is JMHO

This can't be considered a cartoon as it looks too much like evil anime.

Few things if any, have done as much to normalize homosexuality, among many other immoral or godless things, as the TV sets in everyones households. There is no denying the power of the medium of televisions. They bring the world and many a temptation into every house. By beholding we become changed. God give us the grace and power to use them wisely. I know I need to tighten up the reigns, its just to easy with everything just a click away. TV's always remind of the following scriptures.

Eze 8:1 And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me. 2 Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber. 3 And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy. 4 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain. 5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry. 6 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations. 7 And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall. 8 Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door. 9 And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here. 10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about. 11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. 12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth. 13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. 14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. 15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. 16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east. 17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose. 18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.

Are not our TV sets filled with abominable motion pictures or portraits? Is not every house with a TV set in it a chamber of imagery? Are we not changed by what we behold? Are not our eyes and ears the pathway to the sanctuary of our minds? Do we not choose to fill our sanctuary with either the things of God unto holiness, or the abominations of this world unto destruction? Yes we do. Our TV sets just might be the single most dangerous avenues to our souls, let alone in our households. I say don't watch the cartoon, and pray to God for strength for each of us to use these avenues to our souls in accordance with His will. Lord knows I need to self censor far better than I do.

2Co 3:18  But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

The vast majority of all that is on our TV sets, has nothing to do with beholding the glory of God, and therefore will not likely have much to do with changing us into His image. God help us all in our chambers of imagery.

Hi Amo!

Re your quote from Ezekial..."...every man in the chambers of his imagery..."

"God help us all in our chambers of imagery." Amen to that!!!  In idle moments - you have pointed, by that quote - to my besetting sin.  When I realize where it's leading me, I shut it down "taking captive, every thought or intent, that does not conform to the mind and teaching of Christ."  But there are times when I don't "act" quick enough to "nip it in the bud".  Always, while in the body - we are participants in the struggle between the flesh and the spirit.  The answer is obvious - avoid those avenues that might lead one astray.  In my case that might mean quickly flicking over the pages of some lurid article in a newspaper.   The "telly" is not a problem - my wife and I, very seldom watch anything other than the news, weather forecasts, and some "Daystar" programs - no "entertainment" that most others watch.  In fact we could easily do without TV!


  I don't for one moment suppose thae any such "abstinence" gains us any "brownie points" in the Lord's eyes - but we must not walk into sin and grieve Him!  "And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with which you were sealed for the day of our final liberation."

Certainly no browny points for simply doing what we ought to. I do very little reading that is not spiritually, historically, or perhaps scientifically based. Mostly books, very few magazines or the like. The idiot box is where I have always turned for entertainment during down time. As time goes on though, there is less and less entertainment on it which would not grieve the Holy spirit of God.

I guess it might be a good thing that most of the new shows are junk. When they were good I could more easily get sucked into a story line or series and find myself excusing, or ignoring, or sometimes fast forwarding junk scenes. There are some good, informative, and even spiritual things one can find which I do often. I need to center upon these more, and entertainment less, if not scrap the latter altogether. Of course, trusting the idiot box to truly inform us, might not be such a good idea either. It is most obviously a tool of deception in the wrong hands.

2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 

Sticking with the highest education is of course always best. Godspeed.

I usually get this holy spirit inspired 'uncomfortable' feeling if I am watching something or reading something that contains a gay relationship. I stopped reading a book a while back where the main character was gay, but the book description didnt tell you that, so I didnt realise.
