Kevin Sorbo: Why is Hollywood so afraid of God?
fox ^ | 3-21-14 | Sasha Bogursky

Kevin Sorbo is sick of what he calls Hollywood's intolerance to those who believe in God.

"There's a negativity towards Christians in Hollywood," Sorbo told FOX411. "And a negativity towards people who believe in God."

It's not just faith that Hollywood is intolerant of. Sorbo, who has spoken out against President Obama's policies, feels the backlash from the entertainment industry for his political affiliations.

"There's also a negativity towards people who aren't liberal. There's no question that it has hurt me in Hollywood that I didn't vote for Obama."

Sorbo said he doesn’t understand why his religious or political beliefs should have any affect on his work as an actor, but he has noticed a decline in role offers since coming out of the "Christian closet."

"There's some much bashing going on in the media and world for people who believe in God," said Sorbo. "I'm just not afraid of the [politically correct] crowd I'll go right back at them."

What it all comes down to is Hollywood not being open to those with differing beliefs, said Sorbo.

"There's so much anger in Hollywood," the "God's Not Dead" star said. "They don't like the truth, they'd rather belied to and they just attack anybody who doesn't agree their way."

"Yet they scream for tolerance and they scream for freedom of speech but only if it's their way," Sorbo continued. '"I don't begrudge them their beliefs, why do they begrudge mine?"

Hollywood has every reason to be afraid of God, as does our current government.

“I don’t begrudge them their beliefs, why do they begrudge mine?”

Because they are bigots.

They are afraid of God because they are filled to the brim with decadent homosexuals and pedophiles (but I repeat myself). They do not want moral people preaching to them, instead they want to force their deviate lifestyle on the rest of the world.

Kevin Sorbo? He should be asking himself why he’s such a bad actor.If he, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Joe Estevez are evil all in the same place, a singularity will form from all the suck.

I’ve always believed their hatred of God is greater than their fear of Him.

Their hatred is deep and quite vitriolic and intense - waaay beyond anger. It always displays their belief that they are their own god.

I believe they've sold their souls to Satan in return for fame and fortune.

Satan kept his part of the deal and they're afraid to lose their part.

I've heard that many Hollywood types have announced that publicly.

I'll not forget "Rosemary's Baby."

They have every reason to, we all have, but none they are compelled by, apparently.

Seems like I've read something about these times somewhere...

I remember being afraid when I read it and reread it and definitely haven't gotten over my fear.

That was the old lie in the garden...”Ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

Same dance, different tune.

Yep. I know a guy who is a talented carpenter. He was offered a very high-paying union gig in the film industry. He turned it down because the thought of having to work with so many pedophiles every day sickened him.

I read somewhere that the fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

Then form your own production companies, set up your own theatres. Why do people feel like they have to go through the gauntlet of Hollywood/Los Angeles/Beverly Hills?

From what I've read about Hollywood, you had your Sodomites, Communists and anti-Christians back in the 30's and 40's- it was just that America was so traditional that the Studio Presidents had good sense to keep all the shenanigans out of the news. It wasn't that Hollywood degenerated in the 1960's, it was that it was unveiled.

There are plenty of Christian writers, directors, and actors who, if some Christian studio would start up and nurture them, could produce some awesome movies.

Is it possible that because Scientology has such a hold on Hollywood that the adherents to that ‘religion’ don’t want to promote competing religions such as Christianity?

I don’t go to movies and therefore am not familiar with Mr. Sorbo. Is he a well-known actor?

Oh come on man... Lou Diamond Phillips is bad, but he does have his typecast where he fits in. He is good in Longmire.
