Church responds to media inquiries over TV sitcom star’s affiliation

Jones, who became a Seventh-day Adventist earlier this year, was the center of media attention this week because of personal comments about the content of Two and a Half Men, the CBS show on which he stars.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church emphasized its welcoming of converts in a response to media attention surrounding an American TV situation comedy actor’s comments about his religious affiliation and his personal thoughts about the show.

In a news release yesterday, a spokesman from the denomination’s North American Division said the Adventist Church welcomed actor Angus T. Jones “with open arms.” Jones is the 19-year-old actor on the sitcom Two and a Half Men, a popular show aired on the CBS network. He joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church through baptism in June.

Jones was the focus of media attention this week when a video of him criticizing the content of the show went viral. The video was recorded by Christopher Hudson, an individual whose ministry is not affiliated with the Adventist Church.

George Johnson, a spokesman for the Adventist Church in North America's, said questions about Hudson should be directed to him and his organization directly.
