Circumstances got the best of me today, seriously limiting my time for blogging. I’d planned to write some observations on Hollywood’s newfound moral outrage regarding sexual misconduct. Alas, time prohibits me from composing the essay I had in mind.
So instead, let me pose just a few questions that would give you a rough idea of my thoughts on the matter:
- Why does an industry so devoted to sexual immorality suddenly decide that it can condemn a practice of sexual sin?
- How come Hollywood waited until now to decry something that’s gone on since the medium first started?
- What standard does Hollywood use to determine sexual morality?
- Will they now start producing films that uphold modesty and morality?
- Should moviegoers stay away from sexually explicit entertainment, sending a message that we reject Hollywood’s culture of unrestrained sex?
- As Christians, are we surprised by Hollywood’s obvious hypocrisy?
My questions probably give you a pretty good summary of the blog post I would have presented if I’d had time to write it. Perhaps just this brief list is all I need to offer right now.
