The Guardian’s Henry Barns did an interview with John Cusack about his 2014 film Maps to the Stars. During the interview Cusack stated, “Hollywood is a whorehouse and people go mad.” Three years later we saw unfolding how producer Harvey Weinstein became the poster child for Hollywood as “a whorehouse.” Lust is one of the Seven Deadly Sins along with: Gluttony, Greed, Laziness, Wrath, Envy and Pride. Notably gay pride.
When you watch any film look for Hollywood to promote one or more of the Seven Deadly Sins.
We saw the film industry lose its audience in 2017 as it fell deeper into the abyss. While attendance grew in 2018 it may have been because of a company called MoviePass which offered unlimited movie tickets at select theatres for $9.99 a month. Today MoviePass is struggling to stay in business.
Recently Hollywood studios announced that it would not film in Georgia because the state legislature passed, and Governor Brian Kemp signed into law, a heart beat bill to protect the unborn. There is at least one exception. One man is standing against Hollywood, his name is Clint Eastwood. Eastwood will be in Georgia filming The Ballad of Richard Jewell. The movie is about American security guard, Richard Jewell, who heroically saved thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. Jewell was unjustly vilified by the media, which falsely reported that he was a terrorist responsible for the bombing.
Hollywood is all about envy and pride.
Hollywood rewards itself with the Emmy, a golden idol, for making films that violate not only the Seven Deadly Sins but also the Ten Commandments. Murder, rape, incest, hate, pride, envy, gluttony, greed, wrath and sloth are common themes in films today. Add to this list the glorification of man over God, drug and alcohol abuse and of course homosexuality.
Even worse is that these Seven Deadly Sins and the Ten Commandments have cartoon characters in animime games and videos that our children play. Children are being exposed to every known sin in video games, on the silver screen and even in our public school classrooms with Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE). Watch:
Perhaps Hollywood will come to its senses and begin making more and more movies that emphasize Faith, Purity, Patience, Love, Selflessness, Truth, Repose, Pacifism, Reticence and Piety? Films like Toy Story 4, Catching Faith and Yesterday or the television series The Chosen.
We as parents, grandparents and citizens can only be watchful and go to see those movies that present a positive and loving message.
