BBC’s Culture of Death propaganda (update 28 June 2011)

We call on pro-Life campaigners to give up the TV and stop funding the BBC.

Sir Terry Pratchett’s ‘Choosing to die’ documentary on 13 June 2011 was designed to put pressure on legislators to change the law and allow assisted suicide in Britain. The BBC has done this type of interventionist programming before most notoriously with abortion. ‘Choosing to die’ had Sir Terry Pratchett, who is as pro-euthanasia as they come, flying to Switzerland with a Motor Neurone Disease patient and sat with him while he committed suicide in the creepy Dignitas clinic. There have been many protests about this programme but as usual to no avail.

The is only one way to stop the BBC’s promotion of the Culture of Death is to STOP PAYING THE LICENCE FEE.

We are not suggesting that people watch TV and not pay the licence we say throw the TV out! Therefore deprive the BBC of funds and influence.


CUT's winter 2011/12campaign is to make parents aware of the damage being done to children by the TV and video games

Les Dams D'TV

Be careful what you let your children see
for what they see they may be

The image above is called "Les demoiselles d'Television" and is after Picasso's painting "Les demoiselles d'Avignon" in which the artist portrays a brothel scene. The nudes are distorted and Picasso is using African ritual masks for some of their faces. In the foreground are three young girls watching TV, will the TV distort their lives like it has affected other children? Is TV watching for children really Russian Roulette?

The 10th Prayer Crusade on 29 September 2012 - The feast of St Michael and the Archangels

St Michael

We ask for your prayers for organisations like the Huffington Post one of the biggest blogs in the English language and other organisations who regularly attack the Catholic Church.

We ask all our members and anyone who wishes to join us in prayer to pray for all the misguided people who inspired by the mainstream media use social networking sites to attack the Church.

Bishop Mark Davies has described the climate in Britain for Christians as a Gathering Storm, and he says we must not fail to head the repeated words of Our Lord in the Gospel, "stay awake..... "and stand ready..... (Mt 24: 42,44)

It is up to us whether we follow the BBC or the Gospel we cannot do both for we will despise one and love the other, they are now that far apart and the gap is widening. This week on the theme that we are all given something by God, it is how we use these gifts that count, CUT member Alan Marr reflects on the Parable of the Talents.

Damaging TV Programmes

The“Coronation Street” and “Ich Klage an” article draws a frightening comparison between the Nazi’s use of film to promote euthanasia and British Television of today. Promotion of euthanasia as a kind and compassionate act in Coronation Street and other soaps is very dangerous, for people have become accustomed to the characters. They have become friends with whom they sit down every evening in the safety of their own front rooms.

ITV's Bouncers

As a follow up to our blog post staggering on the UK’s cities at night, we give some links to ITV’s Bouncers series. This is yet more evidence on how the media has robbed people of their faith and left them with nothing to live for. It’s not just cheap alcohol, people have always got drunk and disorderly. But today it’s the sheer scale of the problem and the attitudes that people are displaying when they are drunk.

Here are two links


These videos contain violence, drunkenness bad language, nudity and same sex kissing - just an average night out in one of our towns.

Posted 28-02-2014

Bouncers - Episode 1

Bouncers - Episode 4

These poor people have lost all sense of honour and decency they have had their morals scrambled by a TV diet of violence, and porn (a lot of it same sex) and thats just the mainstream channels. These Bouncers videos have had enormous worldwide hits and these links have been provide by one of our overseas members, it’s a bit embarrassing.

CUT media news

C U T and non Catholics

We have received many expressions of support from other Christians.

We encourage all Christians to give up the TV and stop paying the licence fee. If you hold the Bible to be your Source authority in matters of faith and morals how can you reconcile this with what appears on the television?

Is the TV Satan’s secret weapon?

So join our cause, give up the television, and stop funding Satan's work.

We believe that the television changes people's values and beliefs, and lead many away from Jesus.

Therefore, we encourage Catholics to give up the TV and get a life.

St Michael

St Padre Pio - described the TV as Satan's Tabernacle

St Elizabeth Seton - in the early 1800's she reputedly had a prophetic vision of the twentieth century in which she saw a black box from which Satan would enter peoples' homes.

Who are CUT (Catholics Unplug your Televisions)?

We are mainly a group of lay British Catholics (although we do have supporters on three continents).

Media Alert

The BBC and the IPPF

We have long tried to point out to faithful Catholics how much the BBC has promoted the Culture of Death. However, see for yourself click on the link above The BBC and the IPPF and this will lead you to the BBC’s Sexwise website. This website in-conjunction with BBC World Service gives the BBC's version of sex education to the world. The IPPF is one of the world’s leading abortion providers.

We urge all Catholics and other Christians to unplug your televisions and not watch broadcast TV. Therefore, you do not need to pay licence fee and fund a television corporation that has a partnership with the IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation).

The15th Crusade of Prayer


All Saints Day November 1st 2013

This year’s Prayer Crusade will be for the Pope and the Media

Anyone can join our 15th Prayer Crusade which is under the patronage of the St Louis and St Ferdinand III (Crusader Saints) and the martyrs of Otranto.

The daily prayer of a Prayer Crusader

O glorious St ...(insert your saint here)... pray for us

And for those in the public sphere
Especially those influenced by Satan's lies
May the Lord touch their hearts and bring them to repent.

And walk upon the path of truth and temperance.

O Subjects of the heavenly realm pray also for all led astray.

Pray especially that:

Our Lady Mother of Good Counsel, pray for Pope Francis and lead him to your Son.
So that Jesus may open his mouth and bridle his tongue. And St Michael the Archangel please block the influence of the Satanic Media on the Church.

And pray for me, a sinner

Our Father

Hail Mary

Glory Be

St. Michael, the archangel defend us in the day of battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil,

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host.

By the power of God

Thrust down to hell Satan and all wicked Spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.


The Work of a Prayer Crusader

Prayer Crusaders engage in spiritual combat to counter the media, the Cult of Celebrity, and their often bad influence.

If you have a favourite saint please let us know and we will send you a prayer card with your saint on it (or we can allocate a saint that has not been taken).

Ask your saint to intercede before the Holy Trinity for the souls of celebrities who are in the news and whose influence may lead many away for Christ.

Enrolment in the Crusade of Prayer is free.

Who are CUT?

We are a lay led group of Catholics, we were formed in Wales in 2003, to study the media particularly the television. We have found that the TV is damaging society and particularly children.

We have members in 9 countries and on 3 continents. CUT also has priests and nuns as members. We have also had many messages of support from bishops and Cardinals.

Our rule is to be completely faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church we believe it is difficult to reconcile these teachings with what is transmitted on the television.

Our studies have concluded that the TV and other screen based media can cause violence in society and sexulise children

The American Psychological Association has concluded that Childhood Exposure to Media Violence Predicts Young Adult Aggressive Behavior.


CUT - under the patronage of Our Lady, Mother of Good Counsel and St Michael the Archangel

We are currently engaged in our Ninth Prayer Crusade. We pray that all children will be preserved from the harmful effects of the screen media. Remember we are at war but we save lives.

Spiritual Combat
Prayer Crusaders and supporters of CUT need to arm themselves. There are many pro-Life organisations and Catholic charities that do excellent and very necessary work.  However, there are very few that take on the media and the television. CUT does this from a Catholic point of view and the Devil does not like this and will put obstacles in our way. There is therefore the possibility that you may come under supernatural attack, you may think that you are simply having a spell of ‘bad luck’ or inexplicable obstacles are being put in the way of your Crusade of Prayer and CUT work. Therefore, you will need to arm yourself by prayer, saying the Rosary, going to confession, being in a state of grace, and making a good Holy Communion.  If you are able, fasting is also a very powerful weapon for good. Our Guardian Angels are there to help protect us; do not forget them, and pray to them. Your intercessor saint or spiritual ‘battle buddy’ as we like to call them is part of your armoury.  You may also have a blessed if you wish.

CUT's only rule is that we are completely faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church
