I once heard of a man who, for some strange religious reasons, decided that television was an evil influence. Being in possession of a television set when he came to this decision, he promptly gave it away to somebody else!
Perhaps he as thinking of Mark 9.47: "... if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell". However to, what is in effect, poke somebody in the eye with what you've just plucked out seems at a bit odd.
