‘The Office’ Actor Blasts Anti-Christian Bias in Hollywood

Actor Rainn Wilson has called out the anti-Christian bias in Hollywood over the way “Bible-reading” characters are portrayed in TV and film.

Wilson, star of the hit TV show “The Office,” blasted the bias after watching the popular HBO series “The Last of Us.”

He was responding to a recent episode of the hit series that featured a villainous character quoting Bible verses.

He said: “I do think there is an anti-Christian bias in Hollywood.

“As soon as the David character in ‘The Last of Us’ started reading from the Bible I knew that he was going to be a horrific villain.

“Could there be a Bible-reading preacher on a show who is actually loving and kind?”

President of the LIBRE Initiative, Daniel Garza, said: “Defamation of Christianity has become the most unoriginal and tired cliches in movie/TV series storylines.

“Its prevalence is much more than a bias against an entire people, it is meant to undermine faith and position the secular-minded as only ones with altruistic intentions.”

New Christendom Press CEO Eric Conn said, “Goes back to Mr. Collins in Austen’s ‘Pride & Prejudice.’

“The preacher man is nearly always portrayed in a negative light.

“Also true of Hollywood today.”

“I lean left but Last of Us still made me roll my eyes quite a few times with its Hollywood nonsense.

“Had to stop watching.”

Other social media users found some examples where the opposite is true:

“Mel Gibson’s character in Signs is a standout Christian having a crisis of faith which ultimately leads him closer to God and saves his whole family.”

Another said:

“The only one I can recall is ‘7th Heaven’… it dealt with a preacher’s family dealing with real-world problems.

“It gained a lot of popularity.

“Of course the actor was later found to be a deviant IRL and it made big news.

“So for me, the memory of his character is now stained.”
