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.

STRANGER THAN FICTION: ‘Law and Order’ Mashes Ilhan Omar into Covington Catholic Scandal

This is lazy writing at its very finest.

virtue signaling

Day in and day out, writers in Hollywood work to create arcing storylines and thoughtful dialogue that we may hear passively while we’re cooking dinner. All of the work that goes into weekly television occurs ad nauseam, no matter the reality of the those producing it.  The show must go on, essentially, and there are times in which writers get a little bit lazy. Some of television’s most profound pieces of real estate fall victim to such concerns week after week, and these lazy and uninspired bits often conflate themselves into a loss of viewership.  It is this concern that has Law and Order:  SVU staff worried this week. NBC crime procedural Law & Order: Special Victims Unit featured a “ripped from the headlines” theme in its latest episode, which smeared the Covington Catholic kids by pitting them against an Ilhan Omar-styled character who is portrayed as a hero. The plot centered on a poor, put-upon Islamic city politician being confronted by a red ballcap-wearing crowd of young men who scream at her and taunt her. But the episode also throws in a big dollop of male oppression and lesbianism for good measure, Newsbusters reported. The Law & Order: SVU  episode entitled, “Assumptions,” opens with a pair of teenaged boys running away from a vandalized mosque in which we soon see that Muslim Councilwoman Nahla Nasar (Nazneen Contractor) has been raped. The story, which is an amalgam of two real life American situations, was undoubtedly meant to invoke the emotions of the politically-savvy US populace in order to sell commercials on NBC. This monetization of the American outrage machine is something worth monitoring, especially as we slip closer and closer to the possibility of a constitutional crisis…at least according to the liberal left.

Infotainment Personality from NBC Mocked After Likening Climate Change To…

Here is yet another example of the mainstream media turning to sideshow tactics to keep advertisers happy, while scaring the daylights out of the rest of us.

NBC

The American people seem to forget a very salient point regarding the mainstream media, seemingly on a daily basis: It’s all for show. The entirety of the television “news” industry is dependent upon selling commercial advertising space in between salacious segments of shouting, and it shows.  The competition is stiff on cable, too, creating an opportunity for networks to desperately grasp at niche demographics with their coverage. And while it certainly is entertaining, it doesn’t equate to too much else, especially in this digital world where the facts are easily attainable. This reality may be most prevalent in issues that are heavily divided down party lines and, therefore, tend to create the most drama…something that advertisers love. It’s the chasing of this revenue that has led on NBC infotainment personality to take his climate change rhetoric out of this world. An NBC News reporter raised eyebrows and prompted pushback from an MSNBC host after suggesting that climate change is like an alien invasion that is visible to everyone. The reporter, Jacob Ward, made the odd comparison following the release of the United Nations climate change report that claims a number of “transformative changes” will be needed to save nature and humanity from climate change and other threats. What exactly did he say? “Yeah, you know, it really is devastating, Stephanie. I mean, this is how dark the times are in the view of researchers… people are sort of getting ready for the horrors that this report is talking about. So it is dark times, I gotta say,” he told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle during a Monday show. Ruhle then lamented that “there’s not even a consensus around climate change,” prompting Ward to make the comparison. “I know, I know. I mean, that’s the thing, right? You look at it and you think…
