Hollywood Leans Left Because Hollywood Loves Money!

ABCNews reporter Terry Moran gave the following simple explanation about why Hollywood has gone from the political Right to Left.

Why is Hollywood So Liberal?

So what’s going on today? What happened? I’m wondering if the real reason the big-money players in Hollywood have become so liberal is that it’s good for their business.

Sex sells. Always has, always will. If you put a pretty woman, scantily clad, in front of a pile of radial tires, you will sell more radial tires. There’s probably some algorithm for it. And once Hollywood was able to shake off the shackles of the “Hays code” the opportunities to make more by showing more and doing more in the bedroom on screen were simply irresistible.

The cash Niagara of more explicit, more sexually liberated movies has had a political consequence, it seems to me. Imagine, for a moment: If social conservatives had their way and American culture was remade in the manner they advocate–Hollywood would take a beating. Movies would change–they’d be less sexually suggestive, less “transgressive” of middle-class morality, less likely to champion lifestyles at odds with “traditional values.” (They also might be a lot more boring–but that’s beside the point.) And the big moguls would make less money–a lot less. (Artists would certainly and rightly rebel against the constraints on their freedom to imagine and depict the world–but I’m not talking about artists. I’m talking about businessmen and businesswomen.) So: Sex sells. And that shapes Hollywood’s politics.

But I wonder if there’s another factor (and I admit I’m going even farther out on a limb here). Hollywood is now one of the biggest transnational, mega-corporate industries in the world. The interests of the people who make a pile of money from Hollywood movies are intimately bound up with the culture of international business. And that culture increasingly treats nations and their parochial interests as obstacles to progress, to the natural order of The Deal.

Then Mr. Moran asks some questions that are almost rhetorical.

I wonder: If American foreign policy, or environmental policy, or even our religious culture “offends” people around the world, does that harm Hollywood’s business interests? And if it does, might the risk to the movie business’s bottom line account for some of the reason Hollywood moguls lean left?

There is no need to wonder, you know the answer. Hollywood leans Left for the same reasons some companies endorse near slave labor today and fully endorsed slave labor in America’s past. The love of money.

1 Timothy 6:9-10 (New King James Version)

9) But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.

10) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Some of you might claim that Hollywood wishes to help the poor. I say to you, that Hollywood’s version of helping the poor falls out of line with how Christians should help the poor. Hollywood wishes to promote government, not churches giving to the poor. It’s been a long time since you saw someone like Sally Struthers endorsing a CHRISTIAN charity like Feed the Children.

Sally with children
That is the last time you saw someone from
Hollywood endorse true Christian charity.

Today, the folks in Hollywood would rather see charity done in a manner that references no faith at all and distributes the money via force of government.

True Christian charities give based on people freely giving as they purposed in their own hearts to give.

2 Corinthians 9:7 (New King James Version)

7) So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

And true Christian charities include the message of Jesus Christ with their giving. So that both the body and soul of the needy are fed. What good is it if we fill a belly and leave the spirit empty? So that people live longer on earth, while never being told about the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Hollywood simply desires to line their own pockets, while satisfying their own form of moral conscious at the same time. The cult of Liberalism turns away the Lord and like New York Liberals endorses things like environmentally friendly tools for fornication. The earth is their god, instead of the God of Heaven and Earth being Lord over their lives. You can’t have a bunch in America, that backs the most sinful parties, creates the most sinful entertainment and does the most to tear down Christian faith and values somehow be the nation’s voice of true moral authority. They endorse destruction of the true following of the Christian faith. They endorse the literal destruction of babies in the womb. Because their sin sells and pushing America towards a Communist styled anti-Christian government with some wealth redistribution over a controlled population (controlled in size and thought) suits their desires.
