Where would we be today if it weren’t for the entertainment industry’s continuously pushing for the normalization of homosexuality and same-sex marriage? Where would we be without their equal glamorizing of abortion, adultery, promiscuity, euthanasia, etc?
Like most businesses, the media and the TV and movie industries only produce what they think will sell. So, is it that our culture is morally depraved, because of the media’s pushing of these things, or is that the culture is already depraved, and the media’s only giving it what it wants?
It could be a little of both, but more than likely, it’s the culture that’s already sick and depraved, and the media industries are simply feeding it what it likes and profiting off of it. It’s like Washington and how they’re full of corrupt politicians who enact unjust laws for their own gain and at the voters’ expense. Washington (like Hollywood) is a reflection of American culture. If we want to change Washington, we have to change the culture first.
That doesn’t excuse the media (or Washington) for what they do. They openly slander Christianity and put perverts on a pedestal. And for this reason, the First Lady is extolling their virtues, according to CNS News:
Speaking to a group of television and screenwriters in Washington, D.C., on Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama praised the movie and television industry in the United States for promoting same-sex marriage.
“Every day, through the movies and TV shows and ads you all create, you have the power to shape our understanding of the world around us,” said Mrs. Obama. “You challenge our most strongly held beliefs. You influence our opinions on current events.”
“So the fact is, in many ways, you all are in a unique position to help us address some of the most challenging issues that we face as a nation,” she said. “Just take an issue like gay rights. It wasn’t all that long ago that this was a third-rail kind of issue, not just in politics, but in entertainment as well. It was considered sensitive, even controversial.
“But in the early ‘90s, that started to change,” said Mrs. Obama. “Tom Hanks won an Oscar for his portrayal of a gay character in ‘Philadelphia.’ ‘The Real World’ included an openly gay cast member. And over the years, there was ‘Ellen’ and ‘Will and Grace,’ ‘Milk’ and ‘Brokeback Mountain.’
“And today, ‘The Imitation Game’ is up for Best Picture at the Oscars, and Cam and Mitchell–two of my favorites–are raising their daughter on ‘Modern Family,’ one of the top-rated shows on TV,” said Mrs. Obama.
“And at the same time, we’ve seen gay rights advance in real life as well,” she said. “As my husband said, we’ve seen gay marriage go from a wedge issue into a civil right in states all across this country. And that’s just one issue.”
The Cameron and Mitchell characters on “Modern Family” are a same-sex married couple with an adopted child.
Expect this kind of conditioning from the entertainment industry to continue. The culture will continue to crave filth, and TV and movie producers will only offer what people want and also continue to break down the weak and brittle moral barriers left over from our distant past Christian heritage. Since our society has largely rejected the idea of an absolute moral authority and standard, those barriers are easy to knock down. Nothing is off-limits. The entertainment industry won’t stop at promoting promiscuity and homosexuality. There are still many forms of perversion to explore and promote. Just wait.
