We have long been accustomed to Hollywood bashing both Christians and the Bible, but their latest offering takes their hatred of God to a whole new level.
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27 (KJV)
This is what the official blurb from the NBC website says about it:
America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”) and Ben Feldman (“Mad Men,” “A to Z”) star in a hilarious workplace comedy (from the producer of “The Office”) about a unique family of employees at a supersized megastore. From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans to the clueless summer hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions.
Doesn’t sound so bad, right? A quirky, offbeat “comedy” about Wal-Mart sounds pretty good, right? Wrong. The show takes pains to point out that one of the main characters, Glenn, is a “christian”. This “gag” gets repeated multiple times during the show in the run-up to Glenn doing very unChristian things like lying, cheating and stealing. NBC wants us to know that all Christians are hypocrites, and unrepentant ones at that. Glenn also has some unique ideas about Jesus.
In the episode “Wedding Day Sale,” a Christian store manager named Glenn asks for help from a gay employee named Mateo to build out a special gay wedding section.
“I just want everyone who comes into this store to feel accepted,” Glenn says. That seemingly compassionate gesture opens a discussion about Jesus supporting pro-gay adoption and pro-gay marriage—and even speculation that the Messiah Himself may have been homosexual.
If the character Glenn were truly a Christian, he would not in a million years be a party to creating a “gay wedding” section of the store much less volunteering to do it. If Glenn was a Christian, he would witness to his gay co-worker and tell himhow to get forgiveness for his sins by getting saved. And he certainly wouldn’t think, even on his worst day, that Jesus Christ was a homosexual. But this is the storyline they give us.
The writer of “Superstore”, Justin Spitzer, uses this episode as a potent selling tool for the LGBT agenda. It equates a rejection of same-sex-marriage with someone who is “narrow minded” and “old fashioned”, and all they need to do “open their mind” that “all love is love”. But that is not what the Bible teaches. LGBT evangelists like Matthew Pines travels across the country lobbying hard and preaching in any pulpit that will have him that God is in favor of homosexuality and same-sex marriage. His book, “God and the Gay Christian” is attempting to show a pro-gay Creator of the Universe.
Vines has also launched something he calls The Reformation Project, which aims to “eradicate homophobia from the Church”. Shows like ‘Superstore’ are working hard to help him sell his end times agenda.
