Media OP: Is Hollywood’s Hatred for the God of Christianity Fueling Violence In America?
In his new book Hollywood Be Thy Name, published by Bridge-Logos, best-selling author Ray Comfort claims to present compelling evidence that Hollywood is poisoning an entire generation against Christianity and the God it serves.
Comfort said, “’Hollywood Be Thy Name’ reveals how Hollywood’s blasphemy and hatred for Christianity played a significant part in poisoning the minds of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, influencing them to murder students at Columbine High School. Hollywood also had an unholy hand in the recent mass-murder at Virginia Tech.”
"Earlier this year, ‘The Blasphemy Challenge’ made the news when about 900 atheists videotaped themselves blaspheming the Holy Spirit and posted the recordings on YouTube. Why do so many have such a great hatred for Christianity? Why aren’t they angry with radical Islam? It’s because of Christianity that we have the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and the YMCA. There are thousands of hospitals, schools and universities, homeless shelters, and soup kitchens all over the world that owe their origin to a Christian heritage. Until a few years ago to be an ’American’ meant you loved God and country. So why is there such an increase in hatred toward Christianity? Where has it come from?”
Does Hollywood really have that much influence over our society?
Why would Hollywood single out Christianity with contempt and deference other faiths?
Is it true that Christians in Hollywood are for the most part blackballed?
Do you believe Hollywood would change if Christians were to abstain from movies that blaspheme God?
Hollywood Be Thy Name not only exposes Hollywood’s part in fueling this hatred, but it also explains why the U.S. crime rate tripled in the late 1960s, and why the sixties generation suddenly threw off the Judeo-Christian values of their parents. Comfort, who co-hosts an award-winning television program with actor Kirk Cameron, says he is so passionate about the issue that he is giving away two thousand copies of a thirteen-minute DVD called “Hollywood and God.”
“This powerful and life-changing video doesn’t criticize Hollywood, but instead looks at the issue from a unique perspective,” Comfort explains. “We’re asking pastors to show it to their churches to help them positively influence society starting in their own families and congregations.” The clip can also be freely viewed and downloaded at http://www.hollywoodandGod.com.
The publication has received a rave pre-release review by Tony Miano of Ten-Four Ministries. “Ray Comfort writes the way he talks to people—with the concern of a man who deeply cares about the spiritual condition of everyone he meets,” says Miano. “With the same warmhearted style with which he engages people in conversation, Ray tells the truth. He doesn’t attack anyone. He simply exposes the lies and the blasphemy of Hollywood with the truth of God’s Word. There is not a shred of legalism in this important book. Instead, the book is a clarion call to people everywhere to revere and honor the name of God.”
Ray Comfort co-hosts (with Kirk Cameron) the award-winning television show “The Way of the Master.”
