Why Hollywood Bashes Christians

Growing bigotry is seen in such films as THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST; THE HANDMAID'S TALE, and JESUS OF MONTREAL with a growing attack on Jesus and His Body by some of the media elite who run the entertainment industry. Christians have every right to be alarmed, since we are well aware of the religious persecution suffered throughout the ages by the church, especially in this century in countries such as: Uganda -- where Idi Amin tortured and killed thousands of Christians; Russia -- where millions of Christians have died in the Gulag and in Stalin's purges and famines; Germany -- where millions of Christians died along with the Jews in the concentration camps; Eastern Europe -- where thousands of Christians have been tortured for their faith; and, Indonesia -- where Christians are being slaughtered for their faith even as you read this article.
