It's a fallacy to suggest that in the news media, business trumps politics. CNN and MSNBC’s dismal ratings are in direct proportion to their deliberate decision to embrace far-left anti-Trumpism. The same holds true for Hollywood, except in their case it’s not just anti-Trumpism that excites. The hatred is deeper. They are committed to levels of anti-Christian bigotry never before seen in their industry. There’s no discernible market demand for this bigotry, but it’s the mindset of the industry that believes Christianity must be insulted at every opportunity.
Hulu’s horror anthology series Into the Dark finally completed its twelve month, twelve episode season with its September 6 episode “Pure.” Each episode ordinarily revolves around a holiday or notable day in the month it airs, so why did the show pick the obscure “Daughters’ Day” over the much more obvious Labor Day for September? Apparently, it’s so the series can force its feminist, anti-Christian message.
Praise the Lord, HBO’s The Deuce is finally airing its third and final season. Although the network still has a sick obsession with sex and nudity, we can at least close the book on this awful series pretty soon. Until then, we have to contend with more sex, drugs, and porn films even within this season premiere. As a bonus, they even throw in a little blasphemy.
Thursday on The View, the liberal co-hosts gushed over 2020 candidate South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigeg attacking Christians about the climate, during his CNN town hall late Wednesday. The same View hosts who hate God being brought into the topic of abortion, loved that Democrats were bringing God into climate change.
The leftist video site Raw Story attacked Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday with a story headlined "Pence hypes false conspiracy theory that Obama ordered Christianity out of VA hospitals." Fact check: Pence didn't say "Obama ordered" a crackdown on Christian materials. But in the Obama years, Bibles were removed from VA centers and religious Christmas carols were banned at an Augusta, Georgia hospital.
Although making God a villain was already a low point, the final season of AMC’s Preacher branches out to ruin another member of the Holy Trinity with Jesus Christ. How many people think it’s fun to watch Jesus smoking dope and shooting people? By the looks of this episode, far too many. It’s moments like these that make me thankful that Preacher is finally coming to an end soon.
Saturday's New York Times included a surprising story on the front page about an evangelical pregnancy center in Newport, Tennessee. Reporter Elisabeth Dias spent time with Wendy Ramsey, who runs Options Pregnancy Help Center in the basement of Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church for expectant mothers. The article respectfully explored how Dawson is trying to make a difference in the lives of pregnant women -- and yes, tries to evangelize about Jesus.
HBO’s latest fiasco in entertainment, The Righteous Gemstones, premiered on Sunday night. Nudity? Check. Unnecessary profanity? Check. Extremely mind-numbing content? Check. So what sets this show apart from the rest of the junk HBO puts out? Not much. The storyline which is centered around a Rich celebrity pastor, Eli Gemstone (John Goodman), and his family—a greedy and very corrupted bunch of people—comes across as a mockery of Christians.
Politicians and pundits are promoting familiar explanations, excuses, and demands following the tragic mass murders in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. From pushing more gun laws to blaming President Trump, conservative talk radio and Fox News, we've heard it all before. One question no one is asking: why is evil rampant in our country? I don't mean obvious evil like the all too frequent mass murders. There are other evils, which seem to have come from the “pit” and are roaming among us uncontrolled.
Barely a week after the premiere of Amazon’s The Boys, we’re back to the same ultra-violence, gore, and blasphemy from the same twisted minds behind AMC’s Preacher. Fortunately, this is the final season of Preacher, so unlike The Boys, this should be the last we hear from this show. Unfortunately, we still have to get through this awful season.
If there's one amazingly bad take on the Democrats in 2019, it's the idea that they're somehow not secular, and appeal to a strong base of secularists. Mark Shields used old examples to argue "I think there is a strong spiritual, almost religious chord to the Democratic story."
Hulu's Four Weddings and a Funeral tv adaptation is...odd. Co-created by Richard Curtis, who created the original movie, and Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), I had high hopes that this team could deliver a heartfelt, funny comedy that either left out the politics or was somewhat balanced. Instead, Republicans and conservatives are overtly insulted and mocked.
