Republicans Feel Hollywood Is Biased Against Christians, New Poll Shows
Republicans feel that Hollywood is biased against Christians, a new poll shows.
About 32 percent of those voters who lean to the right feel that the entertainment industry that produces TV shows and movies, is biased against Christians compared with only 5 percent of Democrats who feel the exact same, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The poll asked the question, “What is your opinion of Hollywood’s treatment of Christianity?”
Results showed that one in three Republicans felt that the industry generally portrays Christians “negatively,” which was six times more than those who lean to the left who felt the same.
“Christianity imposes restrictions on behavior, even in movies,” Pat Boone, one of the stars of the film “Gods Not Dead 2,” said. “Hollywood doesn’t like it when people tell them to stick to moral rules because it makes a lot of money breaking those rules. Orgies, vampires, zombies, debauchery of all forms.”
“Anything goes, and it is liberal Democrats who are making these films,” he added. “Depravity is profitable.”
The results of the poll also showed that only four percent of Republicans felt Christians were portrayed “positively” by Hollywood versus 18 percent of Democrats who thought the same.
The poll, conducted by the Barna group, was commissioned by the creators of the movie “Gods Not Dead 2.” Results were shared ahead of the Republican National Convention which started Monday in Cleveland and goes through July 21.
