Angus T Jones of “Two and a Half Men” has his family worried that his bizarre behavior is due to a church that’s exploiting him. The YouTube clip that Angus appears in while calling his show “filth,” was done in the company of a church member from the Forerunner Chronicle, according to the Daily Mail on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012.
A consequence for that rant might be a pink slip, as it is thought that Angus broke his contract by talking out against the show like he did on that YouTube clip. Carey Jones is fearful that her 19-year-old son is being exploited by this church. Angus makes $350,000 per episode of “Two and a Half Men,” which is the vehicle that brought Angus to stardom.
While the exact terms of his contract are not publically known, there’s no doubt his religious rant, putting his show in the category of filth, has caught the ear of the producers of “Two and a Half Men.” They have not commented on Angus’s public speech, which was filmed in his trailer on the set of the show. In the video a member of the church affiliated with the Forerunner Chronicles is sitting beside the young star.
It is during the video where Angus himself claims his family is worried that he joined a “cult,” but he does nothing but sing his new found religious faith praise. In his Forerunner Chronicles video Jones describes how a school friend introduced him to the Valley Crossroads Seventh-day Adventist Church, where he felt at home after watching his parents going through a divorce. The divorce, which prompted him to stay away from home, ultimately led him to experimenting with drugs.
Angus was a prime candidate for this cult-like friendship these church members reportedly have going with the star. He was at a down time in his life as his parents were divorcing. He had turned to experimenting with drugs, most likely to numb the emotional pain. Most cults extract their members from society who are going through this type of scenario, when a young person is looking for a place where he can fit in.
With Angus, this church reeled in a famous face who is already acting like a vehicle for spreading their word. Many of these cult-like entities that go under the umbrella of religion ask that their members strip themselves of their worldly belongings and share the wealth with their fellow church members by giving it up to the church. If this is the case here, there’s reason to worry that not only will Angus turn his back on everything and everybody he knew and loved in his former life, but possibly lose his fortune to boot.
