What Chris Pratt Just Said About Being Christian in Hollywood Might Shock You

Published

on

Mega actor Chris Pratt, a man who has become just as famous for the boldness of proclaiming his faith openly in Hollywood, has stated that the entertainment industry is not anti-Christian or anti-religion.

During an interview with the Associated Press, Pratt also revealed the reason why he’s been so outspoken about his Christian faith in recent years.

This is a very interesting perspective.

“I think that there’s this narrative that exists out there that Hollywood is anti-Christian or anti-religious, but it’s just not the case,” the “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor explained. “They are kind of not anti-anything. They are kind of pro-whatever is authentic to you.

“I like that,” he added. “Because it’s authentic for me to be pro-Christian, pro-Jesus. That’s my thing. I like it. And I’ve never had anyone try to shame me to my face.”

Pratt added that even if others were to spew negativity about his faith behind his back, he wouldn’t care.

“If that’s the case, go ahead,” he challenged. “You can say whatever you want about me, to my face or behind my back. I’m not going to change.”

The actor also touched upon what motivates him to speak out on his faith in very public arenas, such as awards shows and during awards acceptance speeches.

“I don’t know that I am so much more motivated by where the world is or if it’s just what I’m feeling called to do right now,” he mused. “I think it’s a combination of both things. … That kind of a message, it might not be for everybody. But there is a group of people for whom that message is designed.”

Pratt went on to say that sharing his faith is one of the main things fulfilling his soul at the moment.

“Nothing fills my soul more than to think that maybe some kid watching that would say, ‘Hey, I’ve been thinking about that. I’ve been thinking about praying. Let me try that out,’” he explained. “That’s like the only way I feel like I can repay what has essentially been a giant gift in my life.”

While there might be some serious disagreement about whether or not there’s an anti-Christian bias in Hollywood — seems there’s plenty of evidence to support it being a real thing — the truth remains that we absolutely need more folks like Pratt in the entertainment industry willing to stand up and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ without fear.

Let’s hope he starts rubbing off on his colleagues.

Chris Cuomo Troubles Increase After Sexual Misconduct Allegations Surface

There doesn’t appear to be much upside for Chris Cuomo at the moment.

In a move that was surprisingly appropriate for CNN, Chris Cuomo’s employment has been terminated.

The network, which merely suspended one of its other contributors after he masturbated on a Zoom call with his colleagues, opened an investigation into allegations that Cuomo used his media resources to aid his brother, former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, as he grappled with approximately a dozen credible accusations of improper sexual behavior.

It is now being revealed that these siblings had a lot more in common than previously thought.

A former co-worker of Chris Cuomo made a sexual misconduct allegation against the former CNN anchor, who was fired Saturday for misleading the cable network about the extent of the role he played trying to mitigate the sexual harassment accusations that took down his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A well known employment lawyer who represents the accuser contacted CNN Wednesday to tell them of the allegation, according to The New York Times.

The incident did not occur within the CNN company.

The woman who leveled the unknown accusations against Chris Cuomo, 51, was a former “junior colleague” at another news network, according to Debra Katz, the accuser’s lawyer, the paper said. The allegation was reportedly not connected to the cascade of accusations that led Andrew Cuomo to resign from office in the face of impeachment four months ago.

The younger Cuomo had attempted to downplay his pre-termination suspension from CNN as “embarrassing” during an episode of his personal podcast last week.

CUOMO KAPUT! CNN Takes Bold Action After Anchor’s Unconscionable Behavior

CNN has had enough of their primetime star’s scurrilous behavior.

Published

on

The moral ambiguity of the mainstream media took a backseat this week, at least in one decision made by CNN, after primetime star Chris Cuomo was once again embroiled in an abhorrent scandal.

Cuomo, the younger brother of disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, had earlier been caught using his vast media resources in an effort to help the Empire State lawmaker plot a PR strategy to combat a scandal of his own:  Being credibly accused of sexually assaulting and harassing at least one dozen women, some of whom were employees of the governor at the time.

Now it has been revealed that the pundit also went so far as to contact some of his brother’s accusers, which was a step too far for CNN.

CNN has suspended prime time anchor Chris Cuomo “indefinitely, pending further evaluation,” after new documents revealed the cozy and improper nature of his relationship with aides to his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A second hour of “Anderson Cooper 360” aired in Cuomo’s place on Tuesday night. A town hall about Covid-19 will air Wednesday night.

Tuesday’s announcement about the suspension was the equivalent of a cable news shockwave. Cuomo’s 9 p.m. program is frequently CNN’s most-watched hour of the day. He is a larger-than-life presence at the network. And he was determined to stay on TV this year despite a flurry of sexual misconduct allegations against his brother, which culminated in the governor’s resignation three months ago.

The network did not mince their words.

“The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense,” a CNN spokesperson said Tuesday evening. “The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions.”
“When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly,” the spokesperson continued. “But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second.”
“However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew,” the spokesperson added. “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
There is no telling how long Cuomo could be sidelined, or if a return to CNN is even possible given what we know about the egregiousness of his actions.
