The Wake-up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Why We Are Where We Are
The Den of Evil (Part 3)
Hollywood is the largest source of smut, immorality, violence, corruption and filth in America. It can be said of Hollywood’s greedy evil men and women: 1st Kings 21:20, “...thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.”
Hollywood is a multibillion dollar movie ‘entertainment’ enterprise. Hollywood movies portray and exalt the sins of adultery, lust, sex, immorality, sodomy, indecency, nudity, pornography, obscenity, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, murder, drunkenness, violence and greed.
entertainment n.=something that amuses, pleases, or diverts.
‘Hollywood: Driving the Homosexual Agenda for 40 Years,’
Paul Wilson, NewsBusters, May 10, 2012, article
Here are some revealing excerpts:
Hollywood celebrities exuberantly celebrated President Obama’s recent declaration of support for gay marriage. But Hollywood did not have to come out of the closet and support homosexuality – it has long used its influence to purposely swing public opinion in favor of homosexuality.
For several decades, Hollywood has shown its overt support for homosexuality. Homosexual advocacy on television first began to manifest itself in the 1970’s. This push towards normalizing homosexuality reached full torque in later decades, coming to a head during the late 1990s. Filmmakers have also not been shy about their support for gay marriage. Hollywood actors and directors have not been shy about their goal to normalize homosexuality.
Politicians and journalists who favor homosexuality have also noticed the impact of the entertainment industry on influencing societal attitudes towards homosexuality. In a recent interview in which he came out for homosexual marriage, Vice President Joe Biden declared: “when things really begin to change, is when the social culture changes. I think ‘Will and Grace’ probably did more to educate the American public [about homosexuality] than almost anything anybody’s ever done so far.” NBC “Today” anchor Ann Curry agreed with Biden, declaring: "... there weren't a lot of gay role models on television ... Now, there – this is, we're in the wake of 'Will and Grace,' you know, we've seen 'Glee' on television ..."
Hollywood has fervently pushed for the normalization of homosexuality in America for decades – and this trend has only intensified.
There you have it. Sodomy has been glamorized and popularized as ‘entertainment’ by Hollywood, as have all of the above referenced categories—all of them defined by God’s Word as SIN—the transgression of God’s law.
The film industry is not just about entertaining for profit; it has become a platform for social activism and the forging of cultural mores. There is a 'rich' heritage of filth, perversion and promiscuity within the film business, and like the serpent hissing a whispering lie in Genesis 3, the film industry acts as the unspoken conscience of the world, all the while drawing the mind away from the sober concepts of fearing God and keeping His commandments.
Satan and those who work in concert with him are at work, constantly pulling the wool over the eyes of the populous in reassuring them that God's standard doesn't mean a thing and that every manner of sin is just another valid perspective. Every Hollywood actor, director and person involved in the writing, producing and distributing of films and those who condone and support the wickedness of Hollywood with their financial support shares culpability in this wickedness.
Hollywood has spit in God's face for decades, their iniquity waxing worse and worse as each passing title and content tries to outdo the last in its filth and perversion. All of tinsel-town is responsible for creating a spirit of proud-sinning—a moral pollution that a doomed America gobbles up like dogs eating their own vomit.
Sadly, many ‘Christians’ continue to support Hollywood with their theatre attendance and/or video purchases, its wicked corruption notwithstanding. The rationale goes like this, “I know this movie contains cursing/profanity and/or ‘sexual scenes’ and/or nudity/pornography, but these ‘scenes’ are not that much and not that bad.” What an irrational excuse for sin!
Hollywood, like the liquor industry, has many defenders but it has no defense.
God says: “Wherefore come out from among them—the unbelievers, unrighteous, immoral, infidels—and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty” (I Cor 6:14-18).
