This was bound to happen eventually. The latest episode of HBO’s The New Pope now has the audacity to suggest “upgrading” the Bible and the Church to include gay marriage. Somehow, I don’t think the series that’s bashed the Church and called prostitution a “miracle” has any right to lecture Christians.
Along with the red carpet, Best Picture, and the Oscar itself, the annual Academy Awards has become synonymous with left-wing political speeches and grandstanding. Since 2016, MRC Culture's On TV blog has covered the Oscars in all its liberal glory, from the anti-Trump opening monologue jokes to the activist acceptance speeches.
Freeform seems determined to focus on transgender issues this week. First, we have the plight of transgender illegal immigrants. Now, The Bold Type wants us to feel sorry for transgender marathon runners. The marginalized community is truly growing smaller by the week.
The left’s best efforts at removing President Trump ended with an impeachment acquittal on Wednesday, Feb. 5, and the man had an off-the-cuff victory speech about beating the “vicious” Dems on Thursday. How do you think lefties in Hollywood were holding up?
Was there anyone left who doubted that the new Party of Five reboot is more liberal nonsense? After all, the Freeform drama practically encourages identity fraud for illegal immigrants on top of supporting illegal immigration. It’s only natural now that the show takes it one step further by focusing on the plight of transgender illegal immigrants as well. All it needs now is a Trump jab to cover all the bases.
Not satisfied with simply overtaking its predecessor season, HBO’s The New Pope now seems determined to stuff as many offensive materials in a single hour. Within the latest hour alone, we have Marilyn Manson advising the Pope, rebellious nuns asking for equal rights, homosexual priests sleeping around, and even more breasts. Never before has a show about the Church so desperately needed Jesus.
Disney’s new streaming service “Disney+” is still rolling out new original programming, and one of the newest ones for this year is Diary of a Future President. The series is a comedy following 12-year-old Elena Cañero-Reed (Tess Romero) as she navigates middle school and works to someday be president of the United States. As seen from the last attempt at a sitcom aimed at children, it was only a matter of time before we came across something “progressive.” In this case, it’s reminding people that climate change will destroy the world.
A series of “miraculous” events turned Dr. Max Goodwin from an annoyed skeptic to reluctant seeker in Tuesday night’s New Amsterdam episode, 14 Years, 2 Months, 8 Days. Throughout the episode, the crusading medical director is challenged by unexplainable miracles in the hospital, all happening while an interfaith prayer group called “Prayers for Healing” holds a prayer session in the hospital lobby.
HBO’s The New Pope is still attempting to prove itself just as bad if not worse than its predecessor series The Young Pope. To do that, the show proceeds to show us how the cardinals and priests ruin lives and are generally terrible people. This time around, they push a woman into prostitution and cause a nun protest. There’s apparently nothing terrible that isn’t caused by someone religious.
The previous episode of CW’s Batwoman ended with the social justice hero herself admitting to the world that she is, in fact, a lesbian. This was apparently a huge deal despite this being 2020 and having nothing to do with being a superhero. It’s only naturally then that the show’s forced to introduce a homophobic police force to pretend having a lesbian lead really matters.
Just in time for the March For Life, another celeb-driven pro-abortion PSA has been making the rounds on social media, with the message that more Americans than ever are okay with killing babies. Take that, March For Life supporters.
Star Trek has always been a little political, but lately the long-running science-fiction franchise has suffered from social justice wokeness and Trump derangement syndrome. Unfortunately, it seems like the latest series Star Trek: Picard will take the same route as it questions the “moral authority” of once iconic institutions. Not even Patrick Stewart’s return as Picard can save the political spiral.
