On the same day Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones discouraged viewers from watching the program because of its’ “filthy” content, the show’s creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre cryptically addressed the 19-year-old’s qualms and spirituality in a vanity card following Monday’s broadcast of his hit, Mike & Molly.
Lorre, who often used the vanity cards as a sounding board during his public battle with Charlie Sheen, wrote about how one can have misconceptions due to the way they see the world; and how “we are all God in drag” and it is up to oneself “as to what kind of world we live in.”
“I’ve been told that if you change your mind, you change the world – or at least the way you experience it. Let’s take a moment to examine that. The presumption is, if you thought the world was a hostile, ugly place filled with awful people doing awful things, that is what you’d see. Your mind would naturally seek out confirmation for its preconceived ideas (e.g., if you’re intent on buying a red car, as you go about your day you’ll see lots of red cars).”
He continued, “If, however, you were able to sincerely change your mind and see that we are all God in drag, that we are the conscious aspects of a perfect universe which had to create us so we could bear witness and stand in awe before its loving magnificence, then that is the soul-shaking reality you’d be greeted with each and every moment of each and every day.
“In other words, it is entirely our choice as to what kind of world we live in. With a simple decision, we can suffer in the darkness or play in the light. We can be angry, frightened and enslaved, or loving, joyous and free … I know. It’s a toughie.”
As we previously reported, Angus, in a testimonial he filmed for the Forerunner Christian Church, told viewers, “Please stop watching Two and a Half Men … I’m on Two and a Half Men … I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.
“You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t. I’m not okay with what I’m learning, what the Bible says, and being on that television show.”
No word on if Lorre will consider Angus’s pleas to relieve him of his role — or the $350,000-per-episode paycheck that comes along with it.
