Rain Wilson, the former star of “the Office,” revealed that there is certainly an anti-Christian bias in Hollywood.
He made this remark regarding the recent episode of “The Last of Us” on HBO Max.
In episode 8, “When We Are In Need,” the main character of the show, Ellie, meets a group of survivors led by a cult-leading cannibal who constantly quotes the Bible.
“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,” Wilson wrote on Twitter. “Could there be a Bible-reading preacher on a show who is actually loving and kind?”
“The Last of Us,” is a post-apocalyptic series based on a video game that has the same name. In the final episode, David, played by Scott Shepherd, tries to rape Ellie and she kills him in self-defense.
When Wilson gave his opinion about the bias in Hollywood, several Twitter users agreed with him.
“Defamation of Christianity has become the most unoriginal and tired cliches in movie/TV series storylines. It’s 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,” Daniel Garza wrote. He is the LIBRE Initiative president.
“Indeed, making Christians the bad guy in the show is the norm, nowadays,” another person wrote.
The show has stayed pretty close to the original video game content, but the David character was not a pastor in the game.
“As SOON as the pastor started reading from the Bible I knew he was going to be awful,” one person wrote. ”I was like ‘watch that guy be David the creepy cannibal from the video game.’ And then it was David. Shocked. Surprised. Never seen it before. He wasn’t a pastor in the video game.”
Some were surprised at Wilson’s commentary because he is typically radically left in his politics.
