In a recent edition of “Decision” magazine, Franklin Graham wrote an outspoken article on the entertainment industry in America titled,
“Hollywood: Entertaining ourselves to death?”
After living many years in the hometown of the Graham’s, Franklin remains a household name. I worked with a man for 12 years who was in the same class as Franklin growing up.
Not only him, but many others who knew the “rebel” he was saw him giving his parents a hard time as a teenager into his early 20’s. However, he is now using that “rebellious overtone” to speak bluntly and candidly about issues facing our nation his father preached against for decades.
Like, Franklin I remember when there was no cussing, sex and very little violence except for a few John Wayne shootouts and The Rifleman. Good always won over evil but nothing was ever an embarrassment to watch with anyone else.
Trying to explain that to the generation of young people today is like helping them understand how we lived without cell phones and computers most of our lives. It is incomprehensible.
In the article he quoted Michael Landon who died many years ago after his efforts to keep TV/movies clean and child accessible.
“Let’s face it, television is an invention where you’re entertained in your living room by people you wouldn’t have in your house!”
Landon, speaking at a roast for Dean Martin was applauded with shameful grins.
There is no need to exacerbate the unlimited vulgarities played out on the screens today because we all know them. As garbage goes in, garbage goes out. In the process it filters through our brains leaving trash sloshing around for the enemy to use. And we wonder why we have nightmares.
The ill -fated, sick delusion of Hollywood has laid upon our nation a reputation certain leaders in other countries want no part of. Christian artist Natalie Grant walked out of the Grammy’s due to the Gay/LGBT community takeover of this awards show. Mandisa didn’t attend and won two awards. Threaded with the Gay implications and nuances throughout the show was a huge maneuver of control by this group.
A number of well-known actors such as Kevin Sorbo, Kirk Cameron and Gary Sinise have made their stance clear against homosexuality. An addition to the Gay agenda are any actors speaking out against the Obama administration. The latest fatality has been James Wood. He spoke that he now believes he will never get another acting job due to his conviction. And he is not alone in the “black list of fallen actors.” Kevin Sorbo recently revealed the number of offers for him has greatly diminished. So much for being qualified.
(An interesting side note about James Wood. He has an IQ of 186; higher than Einstein. And he has a story about flying on a plane a month before 9/11 in which there were 4 Middle Eastern men who he later found out were planning the attack; 2 of which were on the planes that evil day.)
The “Decision” magazine also had an article about the Ugandan President who signed an Anti-Homosexuality bill on 2/24. President Yoweri Museveni has been outspoken about the split his Ugandan church made from the Anglican Church of Canada 10 years ago over this issue. An Ugandan Archbishop stated, “homosexuality is incompatible with scripture.”
President Museveni has been criticized from Western leaders such as President Obama over certain remarks he has made and I quote:
“We have been disappointed by the conduct of the west, the way you conduct yourselves there. “
Having been told the Ugandan’s must abide by this stance he answered unequivocally,
“That’ where we say no.”
President Museveni was interviewed by a CNN reporter who asked him if he personally dislikes homosexuals. His answer,
“Of course. They’re disgusting. What sort of people are they?”
