How could some bible-humping Christofascists break through the Iron Curtain of leftism around the Pagan People’s Republic of Hollywood?!?  This is not possible!  The leftists are extremely upset.  A song from an upcoming movie with Christian themes (well…….see the trailer and judge for yourself, I really have no idea how Christian it is) has been nominated for best original song. Leftists are gravely offended.  So much for “tolerance,” or diversity of ideas.  You will submit to your new secular pagan overlords or you will be crushed.  Think I’m kidding?  Check out this rhetoric in response to the nomination:

The nomination has received negative reactions not for its quality, but for the film’s endorsements by James Dobson, Rick Santorum, and Josh Dugger, executive director of Family Resource Council Action, among others. Film.com framed the movie as endorsed by “anti-gay hate group activists,” while the Boston Globe headline reads, “The Oscar nomination that stinks to heaven.” Hitflix writes: “There were audible gasps and chuckles when Cheryl Boone Isaacs began reading the list of nominees in the category, and first off the bat was “Alone Yet Not Alone” from, er, Alone Yet Not Alone…It doesn’t seem a stretch to call this Christian drama the most obscure feature film nominated for an Oscar this year.”

This tribalism would be funny if it weren’t so serious.  The same people who 10 years ago probably couldn’t give a remote flip about pretend same-sex marriage now define their tribal cultural superiority based on it.  Only the unwashed bitter clingers believe in something so uncouth as biblical truth or moral law.  It’s amazing how much marxism has been unconsciously (or consciously) absorbed by those who would like to be our elites.

As I said, I don’t know anything about the movie itself, but here is the trailer and then a video of the song in question:

When you see the hook on the song and the performer, I think we can see why the Oscar committee selected it, and why the hateful reactions are so very revealing of diabolically darkened hearts.  The performer is a quadriplegic:

Really, really not my kind of song, and surely not my kind of churchy music.  But hats off to the performer, what a clear, strong voice she has.  God can do all things.

Unfortunately, in this world, we rarely have happy endings. In an absolutely ludicrous, hypocritical decision, the Oscar committee has now REMOVED “Alone but Not Alone” from the list of contenders because the songwriter allegedly engaged in impermissible attempts to influence the selection process.  This is an utter joke, these voters are wined and dined, flooded with mailings and slick glossy presentations, given free DVDs and other merchandise, all in an attempt to sway them to vote for a particular movie as a matter of course. That is why I said in response to the Grammy’s travesty that these award shows are immoral exercises in behind-the-scenes politicking and influence peddling.

All the songwriter did was e-mail some of the voters to make them aware of the song, since this movie has not been released, yet.  Most would not be aware of it.  This is nothing compared to the regular attempts to influence that are part of every Oscar process, as an Oscar nomination means millions of dollars.

What really happened, is that the Academy of “Motion Picture Art and Sciences” (please – arrogant much?) crumbled to leftist pressure.  Hollywood, fo guck yourself:

 The board of governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has rescinded the Oscar nomination for “Alone Yet Not Alone.” The board concluded that writer Bruce Broughton “had emailed [some of the other 239] members of the branch to make them aware of his submission during the nominations voting period,” according to a press release.

…..Since nominations were announced, the song—performed by quadriplegic Christian author and speaker Joni Eareckson Tada—drew criticism and confusion from Hollywood for beating out musicians featured in more popular films. The latest news stokes the debate even further, given that Oscar lobbying and campaigning are arguably common practices.

Oh, ALL opinions are welcomed in Hollywood, land of infinite diversity!  Except, of course, for Christianity, which just won’t go away and die like they so want it to!  Remember in my post the other day on St. John Chrysostom’s sermon, where he said that those who attack the Church really want to attack God?  Well, yeah……….there you go.

Terrible for the artist. Wrong, they really want them all dead thru abortion.I
think I watched the Oscars once. That’s one of the most boring all hype shows.

I remember Joni Ereackson from my childhood, if she’s the same person. She became famous in the Protestant world because she was an artist (a painter) who painted with the brush in her mouth.

Ah, Hollywood! Such an ethical bunch of folks…. Why, they could not possibly have any other motive but the fact that this man broke the rules…. Now, could they?

Thanks Tiberious Jones for intelligently speaking the truth; awesome. You’re too smart to resort to profane language (yes, they make us mad, but they’re Spiritually dead,totally serving Satan and the flesh) ” ..God.is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.” 1 John 1:6 Joni is an amazing woman, In suffering and every way yielded to her loving Savior. You can be sure she won’t hold this against The P.P. R. of Hollywood. She’ll pray for their Salvation. 🙂

So, wait, you guys are defending someone who broke the rules simply because the song was from a Christian film?

Since when are us Christians supposed to be in favor of malfeasance? Since when should we support unethical behavior? When does Christ call us to cheat in order to win?
