Christians, We Need To Talk About Hollywood

Tim Challies



Scandal after scandal has broken over Hollywood and, for perhaps the first time, we are all seeing what goes on behind the lens. And now I think it’s time we, as Christians, had a talk about Tinseltown. . .

A few weeks ago, some allegations were made against Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein, of course, is a Hollywood producer. He’s produced some very well-known, very high-quality, award-winning type movies. You’ve probably seen some of them. An actress brought these allegations that he had assaulted her, or attempt to assault her. That seemed to just open up the floodgates. Soon, person after person, actress after actress was charging him with various sexual crimes and misdemeanors. That sort of grew into this crescendo. He very quickly was shoved out of Hollywood, shoved out of his company. His reputation is completely destroyed. His career is over, and for very good reason. Sadly, you know, where this many women have stepped up and said, “Yes, this happened to me,” there must be many, many more who are bearing the shame of what happened to them and have not stood up. He’s been revealed as an absolute predator, and for good reason, has been discredited. There’s a very good chance he’ll end up in prison, again, justly so.
