    My purpose here is not to throw more stones on the now-disgraced Harvey Weinstein, who is already suffering the consequences of his alleged actions. My purpose is to confront the larger hypocrisy of Hollywood, an industry that has made billions of dollars selling sex, an industry that encourages all kinds of sexploitation.

    Let’s put aside the question of whether media giants like NBC initially rejected the Weinstein exposé or whether actors like Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were insincere in their statements against him.

    Instead, let’s remember that, for years now, we’ve heard about the “casting couch,” slang for sexual favors aspiring actresses would be expected to show Hollywood execs if they wanted to advance in the industry.

    Just look at these headlines, with their dates:

    May 31, 2011: “Casting Couch Nightmares: What Does It Take to Make It in Hollywood?”

    April 23, 2014: “The Dark Side of Hollywood—10 Casting Couch Horror Stories; RadarOnline looks back at the stars who complained of harassment within industry”

    June 20, 2014: “12 Celebrities Reveal Their ‘Casting Couch’ Stories”

    And then this one, from Oct. 11, 2017, following the revelations about Weinstein: “Women of Hollywood Tell Their Casting Couch Horror Stories.”

    One recent article claims that these sexual abuses in the movie industry date back to the early 1920s. Yes, an AP article published in the Japan Times claims that, “Hollywood’s ‘casting couch’ scandals go back at least to 1921.”

    The article begins with this: “For anyone thinking the days of the so-called casting couch were long gone, this past week has been eye-opening. The growing list of women directing allegations at Harvey Weinstein suggests they never left Hollywood.”

    The point is that the major players in Hollywood have known about these kinds of things for years, yet most looked the other way. Why? It’s part of the business, and you don’t dare challenge or expose the giants. It will destroy your own career if you do!

    WHAT DO YOU THINK?

    - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

    What is your response?


    If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
