Rainn Wilson denounces anti-Christian prejudice in Hollywood

  • Post category:news

‘The Office’ star Rainn Wilson is waking up to what he perceives as ‘anti-Christian bias’ in the entertainment industry after a recent episode of HBO’s ‘The Last of Us’ featured a pastor whose character has worsened.

“I think there’s an anti-Christian bias in Hollywood,” Wilson tweeted SATURDAY. “As soon as David’s character in ‘The Last of Us’ started reading the Bible, I knew he was going to be a horrible villain. Could there be a Bible-reading preacher on a show that was actually loving and kind?”

Wilson, who played Dwight on the beloved sitcom and has previously spoken about being a follower of the Baha’i faith, specifically took issue with David, the pastor of a small Wyoming congregation who is featured in “The Last of Us” Episode 8 titled “When We Are In Need”.

After Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) cross paths with him for the first time, David’s character quickly takes a turn when the pair realize their motives aren’t as pure as one might imagine. .

While Wilson’s tweet received a wide variety of reactions, “Abbott Elementary” star Sheryl Lee Ralph, who plays the Bible-loving Ms. Howard on the ABC sitcom, used her character as a counterpoint to it. which Wilson called bias.

“Teacher not preacher, Barbara Howard @AbbottElemABC”, the Emmy winner replied Sunday.

In a recent episode “Abbott Elementary,” Ms. Howard feels awkward when the mother of one of her students gets a profanity tattoo on her chest, leading her to list her favorite “B-words,” which range from “Bible” to “blessing” to “blueberry”.

A Twitter user supported Ralph’s assessment of his “Abbott Elementary” character.

“Not a preacher, but @thesherylralph on Abbott Elementary comes to mind,” Amanda Kolstedt writing. “She’s a nuanced, flawed and deeply Christian character, but she’s learning. And not in a way that undoes her beliefs, she learns by leaning into the empathy, love and compassion she has through her faith.
