dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an autoethnographic exploration of what happens when faith and culturecollide. The conflict between my love of television and my dedication to my Christian faith hasbeen, and continues to be, tested over and over. My current favorite shows clearly portray moralsand value systems that are in direct contradiction to those set up by my religion. After a fairlysheltered childhood, when did I make the switch from having my viewing habits filtered throughmy faith to watching anything and everything? Why did I make such a turnaround? Where do Idraw the line and how do I determine where that is? Join me on a journey of self-discovery andrevelation.
