Of course, the title is a joke because no one can deny such a statement as that which says Hollywood is biased against conservative. I try very hard to stay out of the whole conservative vs. liberal war because I am Christian and neither conservative or liberal. Obviously being a Christian, my views parallel those of the conservative more than liberal. I won’t denied it. Yet, I just had to post something about this article. It talks about a bunch of interviews with TV executives who admit on tape there biased feelings towards conservatives even to the point of refusing to hire them. I have to say that I think this is really ironic because of how much liberals push that conservatives are racist, sexist, and homophobic. Of course, both parties are very prideful. Who isn’t? We all deal with pride as probably the center of the human fallen nature. In the interviews shown, an illogical idea that the more liberal you are, the smarter. Such as one statement by Susan Harris, the creator of “Golden Girls” and “Soap”, saying: “At least, you know, we put Obama in office, and so people, I think, are getting — have gotten — a little bit smarter.” I mean that is a pretty ridiculous statement. I don’t say this because of any disagreement I have with Obama. It would be just as illogical and ignorant for a conservative to have said, “People in our country are getting smarter because Bush was elected twice.” Of course it is not limited to the liberal party. People of all groups act really stupidly. I continually see Christians saying things that just sound ridiculous. Many times I am one of those Christians.
There are two reasons why I decided to post this. First of all, we can complain as much as we want with the current state of Hollywood but it will only begin to change when someone decides that they are not going to let it stay that way. Some people are starting to step up to the plate such as the makers of “Fireproof” and the new movie coming out in September called “Courage”. The second reason is that we as Christians need to make sure we do not gain such an attitude. Everyone falls into it at some point. The first step on the road to humility is realizing how prideful you really are. It is the sin of judgment and pride as you think, “O those awful non-Christians. Well at least we are better than them.” We are not better than them. We are all sinners just the same the only difference is that our sin has been taken away by the Lord Jesus. Praise God.
