    (RNS) The teenage star of “Two and a Half Men” apologized Tuesday (Nov. 27) for calling his show unbiblical “filth” and urging viewers not to watch it during a videotaped testimony about his conversion to Seventh-day Adventism.

    Angus T. Jones, who has starred in the salacious sitcom since he was 10, said he considers the cast and crew “an extension of my family.”

    “I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed,” Jones said in a statement.

    The 19-year-old is reportedly paid $350,000 per episode, but his view of the show, which features raunchy jokes and voluptuous vamps, apparently changed during his spiritual conversion.

    “I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the Bible says, and being on that television show,” Jones said in a 15-minute video posted Monday on YouTube. “Please stop watching it,” he added.  “Please stop filling your head with filth.”

    The Seventh-day Adventist Church said that Jones joined a congregation in California’s San Fernando Valley in June and was recently baptized.

    “We are happy that Angus has joined the Seventh-day Adventist family and has found a place in which he feels comfortable to worship and grow his faith,” George Johnson, communication director for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America, said in a statement.

    Johnson added that the young actor’s views of his show “are of a personal nature, reflecting his views after having undergone changes during his spiritual journey.”
