commentary: Hollywood Propaganda: The Insidious LGBT Agenda (Part One)
David F. Maas
Given 26-Dec-20; Sermon #1576c; 11 minutes
The New Testament contains strong warnings against sexual perversion (I Corinthians 6:9), the reprobate or debased mind (Romans 1:21-26), and even approving of these perversions (Romans 1:32). Hollywood moguls, executives, producers, directors, writers and actors have committed themselves not only to approving sexual perversion, but to promoting it. The current majority of U. S. Supreme Court Justices, the majority of members of one American political party and over a third of the members of the other party, the majority of university professors and a large number of the leaders of mainstream 'Christian' churches have become complicit in reprogramming America's rank and file to accept sexual perversion as the "new normal." The powerful lobby GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) has successfully persuaded major Hollywood studios not only to accept sexual perversion, but also to promote it.
In I Corinthians 6:9, we read,
I Corinthians 6:9 [Amplified Bible] “Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality.”
This same sentiment is expressed by the apostle John in Revelation 21:8. The apostle Paul added a further dimension Romans 1, beginning with verse 21 until the end of the chapter. I will read selected passages for you:
Romans 1:21-22 Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, they made simpletons of themselves].
Romans 1:24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin].
Romans 1:26-27 For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one. And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another—men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrongdoing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution.
[In reading these passages publicly, I have just violated at least two California Assembly Statues for “hate speech.”]
Because they refused to acknowledge God, He gave them over to a base, condemned, darkened, reprobate mind to commit vile, loathsome acts, defiling their bodies (verse 28).
In verse 32, we learn that though they are aware that though those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them. This statement apparently describes the majority of the current U.S. Supreme Court justices, the totality of one major political party, and over one-third of the other, largely timid and cowardly alternative party, the majority of educators in higher education, and many, many mainstream churches claiming to be Christian—such as the Lutheran Church in Simi Valley proudly displaying the rainbow LGBT flag.
But by far, the biggest promoter of the LGBT agenda, according to Mark Dice, in his thoroughly researched book, Hollywood Propaganda: How TV, Movies, and Music shape Our Culture—The Resistance Manifesto, the moguls, actors and actresses, producers and studios of Hollywood have done far more to promote tolerance for all kinds of sexual perversion in the name of inclusiveness and opposing “hate speech.” I highly recommend this book as the best analysis of Hollywood’s role in manipulating the culture, bringing shameful, perverted acts into the mainstream, spreading the evil, anti-law, anti-God, satanic moral agenda which is literally destroying modern Israel. There are so many details unveiled in this document that this commentary will have at least two parts.
Back in 1987, homosexual activist Michael Swift penned the so-called "Gay Manifesto," publishing it in the February edition of the Gay Community News. The opening paragraph reads:
We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locked rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries.
[I learned 15 weeks before God pulled the plug on Ambassador College, and later the Worldwide Church of God, that the gay coalition had already established a firm beachhead on the Big Sandy campus].
Michael Swift continues:
. . . in your youth groups, in your theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all-male clubs, in your houses of Congress [of course], wherever men are with men together, your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.
A powerful, influential organization identifying itself as GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) has been successfully lobbying Hollywood since the middle '80s, an organization whose CEO, Sarah Kate Ellis, boasted in the May 18, 2020 Entertainment Weekly, “GLAAD is changing Hollywood’s LGBTQ narrative one script at a time," adding, “We realized we needed Hollywood to be telling our stories to humanize LGBTQ people. So, we opened a chapter very quickly in Los Angeles, in Hollywood, and really the main focus was lobbying Hollywood to tell our stories." In 2018, GLAAD issued what they called their Studio Responsibility Index, in which they started to pressure studios to include gay characters in 20% of films by the year 2021 and 50% of all films by the year 2024.
Sadly, to the dismay of those who love God’s Law, their lobbying efforts are far ahead of schedule, having successfully pressured many studios to transform the superheroes with which young people identify—Batman and Robin, Batwoman, Spiderman, Green Lantern, and Catwoman—into gay or bisexual characters, as well as casting two kissing lesbians on Star Wars. Disney studios has also obediently knuckled under the demands of GLAAD—a topic I will develop in the next part of this series.
The first television series which allegedly made gay normal was “Will and Grace,” a program for which the man who aspires to be the next president, the ethically- and morally-challenged Joe Biden (a veritable 21st century Barabbas), in a May 2013 speech he gave for Jewish American Heritage Month in which he praised Jewish leaders for helping gay marriage succeed. Biden said,
It wasn’t anything we legislatively did. It was ‘Will and Grace.' It was the social media. Literally. That’s what changed people’s attitudes. That’s why I was so certain that the vast majority of people would embrace and rapidly embrace [gay marriage]. Think behind all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry. The influence is immense, the influence is immense.
Brothers and sisters, a large segment of Jacob’s offering has already fallen prey to the spirit of lawlessness, making them susceptible to deception and delusion. We, as God’s called-out ones, must keep our minds free of the deadly Kool-Aid of Hollywood propaganda, affirming our love for God’s truth and His holy law. We will pick up this topic next time.
