When a Sleaze Industry is offended…by Sleaze?

So, a Hollywood producer is exposed for doing what Hollywood’s powerful men have been doing since the beginning of that amoral sewer. There are several headlines stories about this fiasco on Fox and other news outlets. Fox appears to be obsessed with the story, which is disgusting. It is becoming no better than one of those magazines at the grocery store checkout. I quit watching it but the headlines continue to appear on my news feed.

Here is why the story should be second page at best. It is as a complaint among thieves that a more powerful thief stole from them. The industry daily and nightly smears society with smut, yet is outraged when a leading smut producer acts out his “smut-ness.” Why is this even news? It belongs in Cosmopolitan or some other inane seeping gossip sponge.

I think the most bizarre component of this story is the many “stars” that express disgust at what the producer did but regularly bash Christians for supporting or portraying godliness. Further, the overwhelming majority of them support the demoralizing of society. It appears that they wish a measure of decency when the consequence of their immorality affects them, but continue to fling the sordid rubbish on the rest of us.

If they have been involved in R-rated for sexual content movies, they are just as guilty as the producer. They are complicit in causing the same predation resulting in rape, molestation, and even sadistic murder in society. They protest now because some of the sludge oozed from under their slick plastic and neon façade. I say, “Wipe it up and move on because you have no intention of changing.” I might add that professing Christians who imbibe and support the sleaze are equally complicit.

The offender is allegedly contrite, but only because he was exposed. The rest of Hollywood’s citizens and patrons are unsympathetic, likely because opposing sexual harassment is the only moral thing their depraved consciences has considered in years. Perhaps it gives them a bit of respite from the misery of their squalor.

Some liberal professing Christians might protest that I am being too harsh and that I have no compassion for the victims. That fact is the news media is reporting this incident as significant news and as if they have done great service to America. That hypocritical self-righteousness deserves the harshest rebuke possible. As for the victims, certainly I have compassion for them. However, it is not only because of putting themselves at risk by wading into the mire of the mire-makers, but also because their souls are in jeopardy of eternal judgment. The light of truth needs to shine blazingly on the truth about their industry. I pray daily without fail for conviction to open their minds to their lostness that they may have the opportunity to repent and be delivered. I have added the producer’s name to my prayer manual.

They and everyone else who is mesmerized by the gleam of “fool’s gold” need to realize that the producer’s actions are no worse than what is projected by the salacious movies Hollywood produces. While I pity the people who are involved in the diabolical industry, I refuse to remain silent while the deeds of a sleaze merchant are paraded as an anomaly in the primary sleaze industry.

It is not an anomaly—it is business as usual. The news media’s attempt to wipe off a bit of smut as if that was the only blemish on Hollywood’s image is a tawdry effort to close the curtain on how Hollywood makes the bologna. I won’t apologize for kicking over the tables. If they presume the privilege of presenting rancid journalism, I presume the right to cry, “Hypocrites!”

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” – Romans 1:28-32

    For my part, I fear that I may be a hypocrite myself. If others can be hypocritical, the scandal in Hollywood is a warning that I may be one and not even know it. All of us would do well to take warning lest we find out too late that there is a huge gap between what we say we believed and how we lived when we stand before the Lord. To that end, John Wesley has a series of twenty-two questions that help us examine ourselves, and they really convicted me. The website is (I haven’t yet seen what that website is about, but for now I thought I’d post that).

  2. Wow, we need to hear this kind of rebuke, “we” meaning the church. I have all but screamed at top of my voice, stop going to the movies and paying these people to keep producing their filth, stop watching the TV shows that does nothing but corrupt the minds of the willing.

      If the movies that Hollywood makes will be a distraction to the church, then what else could be a distraction? Even innocent diversions might not be the best thing. From what I understand, there is even a difference between what is good and what is best.

  3. Awesome!!!! Don’t think anyone could have said it any plainer, any better! Hollywood is NOTHING!! I wouldn’t trade my pennies for all their riches and fame. They don’t even realize how miserably poor they truly are.
