Do Hollywood Writers Know Any Actual Christians?

On a recent episode of Law and Order: SVU (which I was amazed to learn is still in production), the storyline concerned… I am not making this up… a Christian church that encourages teenagers to rape other teenagers to keep them from turning gay.

SVU’s writers saved their coup de grace for the final minutes of the episode. In those last moments, the audience learns that Lucas himself is a closeted homosexual, and the priest told him to have sex with Ann as penance for his own homoerotic thoughts.

Yeah, because Christian ministers *always* encourage teenagers to engage in premarital sex to ward off Teh Ghey.

It’s like everything Hollywood knows about Christianity comes from The Handmaids Tale: which is nothing but a paranoid fantasy of what the world would be like if Christians acted like Muslims.

  1. How does a “plot” like this find enough benign neglect to fund it?

  2. Corrective rape is an issue that primarily affects lesbians

  3. Do Hollywood Writers Know Any Actual Christians?

    Sure they do: Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart, Billy James Hargis… (VtK’s favorite punctuation!)

    I can hardly stand tee-vee anymore. For Hollywood, “edgy” means insulting the “normals”. I can guarantee that a Law&Order episode based on the sermons of Anjem Choudary or the Islamic tradition of killing adult homos is far less likely than my winning the Powerball jackpot.

    The cowards.

    If the good ol’ USofA wants to feel shamed about something, this is a good place to start:

  4. Juno and The Blind Side were both big hits and supported Christian views/characters.

  5. Highway to Heaven, Touched by an Angel, and 7th Heaven (Ruthie was my favourite character) were all shows that depicted Christian values/families and were brought to you in part thanks to huge media conglomerates associated with Hollywood.

    Btw, whatever happen to Episcopalian Stephen Collins? Hmmn.

  6. this is what it is like to live in a communist country. everything you do has to support the political agenda, everything, tv shows, sports, education, art, et.al. try watching any tv show that isn’t trying to feed you a leftist slant. law and order has been doing it for years. anybody remember when the first person arrested for every crime was black and all of them were innocent. that was the leftist line that the police are only interested in oppressing black people. how many plots based on real events has the real crime committed by a black changed to a white perp. how shows based on real events were used to smear republican party figures. l&o always claimed to be reality based. well in reality how many crimes committed in new York city are actually committed by whites. a much lower percentage than whites commit on l&o. you can never expect to get the truth from Marxists.

  7. Um, I take it you have never watched The Wire.

  9. CrayCray, outliers never disprove the basic truth of the original statement.

  10. The main theme of Jimmy’s post is that Hollywood follows one narrative.

    And, to answer Jimmy’s post title, yes, Hollywood does know actual Christians. They employed Stephen Collins.

  11. CCP is using that new fangled liberal math to prove that .05% is equal to 99.95%

    7th Heaven stopped production in 2007.

  12. Goalposts keep moving.

  13. Yes, you do keep moving them, Vince.

  14. CCP says that 97% of scientists following a narrative proves the narrative but 99.05% of Hollywood following a narrative doesn’t prove the narrative. Funny that.

    Here is a little test for CCP, compile a list of all movies and TV shows produced in Hollywood since 2007. Then count those which accurately portray Christians. Then do the non Cis math.

  15. There’s a sequence. Can you follow it? Again, for those who lack reading comprehension skills, or enjoy reading with blinders on, the goalposts keep moving.

    OH WAIT! You’re trying to employ CONTEXT!

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH!

    Thanks Jimmy & Friends!

  16. I like when CCP employs the “reading comprehension” card.

    Reminds me of Obama.. complaining that people weren’t smart enough to understand his policies. And Mrs. Clinton.

    Then the leftists wonder why they lost.

    We understand your point, you are just plain wrong.
