Exclusive: ´He´s being
exploited by the church´:

Angus T Jones´ mother voices
fears after his extraordinary
religious rant

Daily Mail (UK), by Julie Moult & Lizzie Smith

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/27/2012 10:16:03 AM

The mother of Two and A Half Men star Angus T Jones has spoken out to say he is being ´exploited´ by his church after he branded his hit show ´filth´ in an extraordinary religious rant. Carey Jones, 42, told MailOnline she was worried for her famous son. ´I´m concerned he´s being exploited by the church,´ she explained, but refused to comment further. The 19-year-old - who makes $350,000 per episode playing Jake - was seen urging fans to ´turn off´ in a new video for the Forerunner Chronicles.

His Mother´s mugshot makes her statement understandable. Wonder how he got into church at all.

Exploited???
He has the intelligence to know filth when he sees it, MOTHER !
That was no RANT, it was an honest statement of fact. What was extraordinary was his willingness to speak the truth.
AND the inability of the mother to see an extraordinary young man to be proud of.

He´s 19 years old and is a legal adult. He´s been on the show, what? Ten years? I wonder--at $350,000 per episode--just who is exploiting whom?

As I mentioned the other day, his comments may make it tough come contract re-negotiation. Could someone be worried about losing a meal ticket?

From my limited personal exposure through some friends when I lived in CA ... Seventh Day Adventists appear to be a perfectly normal Protestant denomination. She sent her son to an Adventist school.

Nothing unusual about them at all.

The Seventh Day Adventists are a Christian denomination with some eccentric beliefs and practices (as opposed to the Jehovah´s Witnesses and the Mormons who are psuedo-Christian rather than actually Christian). The most interesting thing about the Seventh Day Adventists is that they started out as a psuedo-Christian cult, but the Spirit of God transformed them into what they are today.

What the church does or doesn´t do isn´t the issue. The issue is: look at the show. Is it idiotic filth that degenerates the minds of viewers, or is it not?

Where people are particularly stupid is that it took the child star telling them so for them to realize it.

Hopefully Angus has control of his money and is saving it wisely because I doubt he´ll ever see a penny from when his parents controlled it. Poor guy pulled a short straw on parents - I hope he finds peace and guidance and lives a better life than his family.

P.S. The show is, and always has been, filth.

Hopefully he has been saving some of the $350K he has been receiving per episode. His prospects as an adult actor are pretty slim, and not because of his religion.

You could spend hours listing all of the successful child actors who became broke adult drug addicts or worse. You can count on one hand all of the successful child actors who became successful adult anythings.

He started on the show as a child. He´s an adult now and it seems a discerning one. I bet there´s a book in there somewhere. I watched a few episodes before I came to the same conclusion he has. And I wondered how much he understood as a boy in some of those episodes.

It should come as no surprise that he eventually got his fill and rejected it.

He is on that show as a small child, with Charlie Sheen for a long time. The show is not appropriate for children to watch, let alone star on. These are his wishes, let him leave the show and return his millions/donate it to charity

Pretty harsh, #20. He´s only now 19? So he took awhile--he wasn´t that aware as a 12 year old? That´s your gripe? I´m guessing he´s under contract. You suggesting he pull a Sheen, violate his contract and get into a bitter legal fight? Or that he honor his commitment like a man, then decide what to do when he´s a free agent again.

He´s biting the hand that feeds him in the name of Christ. I find it hard to mock that.

RE: #26 - I wasn´t intending to be harsh; I truly don´t understand the paradox. And actors leave shows all the time. He obviously had no choice when he was a child (I don´t guess if he had a stage mother or whatever), but he does now. Contract or no, he could walk.

He would not have been able to perform - to enter into a contract - without his parents´ permission. At least one of them undoubtedly signed him up when he was 9 years old (if he is 19 now - with actors you are never sure). In California he has only been an "adult" for one year.

He is obviously reaching his adulthood now, which for him includes seeking and finding a religion that is comfortable for him and living a life that feels right.

How anyone can criticize a child for having performed for years and then seeing the light as he reaches legal adulthood is beyond me. (That fool Shep Smith questioned his veracity because he stayed on the show. That tells us a lot.)

One could make a fair assumption that, based upon the fact that programs of this kind - like movies - are not shot in one continuous filming, he was most often unaware of the other parts of the programs (in which he was not involved or which involved the more prurient behaviors by the adult cast members. Laws are such that I have a hunch he was protected. I believe actors who are minors must have a guardian on the set at all times.

Whether he ever saw the programs when he was a child, we just don´t know.

We have no knowledge of whether he ever told his parents before this that he wanted to not be on this program.

Now he knows. Now he understands. That is enough for me.

A minor must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times when performing. They are members of SAG-AFTRA (the union of which Ronald Reagan was president) and a union member must also be on the set to make sure that the parent has access to their child.

Their wages are protected by the Coogan Act. Fifteen percent of their wages belong to the child alone, held in trust. If any of this set-aside is used by their parents, it is considered stealing. (At $350K per performance, Angus was indeed a cash cow for his parents!)

Regarding appropriateness of the venue, that is up to the parents.

10. Parents should consider the impact of mature or emotionally difficult dialogue or actions on their child’s well being. Only the parent knows what their child can tolerate and therefore MUST ensure their well-being.

I have mixed feelings about this. Why say this at this time if he has been going to church for years ? Did he tithe to the church ? His smom and the church will both miss that money.

What Hollyweird will hire him after this ? Let´s hope he has plan B in place. Best of luck to him.

This gathering in the desert is no Coachella — it looks more like a full scale Allah-palooza. A new video popping up on Jihadi Web sites shows some of al Qaeda most dangerous terrorists smiling and glad-handing each other at a terrorist conclave in Yemen, CNN reported. The video, which features al?Qaeda crown prince ­Nasir al-Wuhayshi addressing more than 100 fellow terrorists in the arid hinterlands, is being analyzed by US authorities. It was unclear if the CIA was aware of the conference, which could have been an inviting target for an anti-terror drone strike, CNN said. Al-Wuhayshi, the leader

CHARLESTON, S.C. — It didn’t take much for Ted Cruz to bring a crowd of conservatives to its feet here. By the time the Texas Republican senator finished speaking Tuesday night, an adoring audience hailed Cruz and his no-compromise, combative style of conservatism that has made him the scourge of the GOP establishment but a hero of the tea party. “Liberty is under assault today like never before,” Cruz said, pacing the stage like a televangelist. But even in deep-red South Carolina, a well-received speech full of Cruz’s signature flair is no guarantee that the firebrand politician could win the

In fact, a census official told the Times they "are expecting much lower numbers" of the uninsured "just because of the questions and how they are asked." As the Times stated, the Census Bureau "is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said."

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
