ABC’s new drama Queens has actually had it out for Christians and the Catholic Church since its premiere.
Apparently, the present’s writers actually dislike Christian “restrictions.” You already know, those that God Himself created for us and outlined within the Bible. However depart it to liberal Hollywood to suppose they know higher than God. In addition they throw within the very overdone and tiresome “secretly homosexual priest” trope simply because they will, and the priest even goes as far as to hail a dishonest lesbian as an “inspiration” and a “hero.”
Queens facilities round 4 feminine R&B stars from the ‘90s who’re reuniting of their 40s in an try to relive their former fame and glory. We’re solely 4 episodes in, however the present has already been heavy-handed in pushing a liberal agenda on sexuality and even tried to use Christianity to defend it. One of many stars, Jill (Naturi Naughton), who’s a working towards Catholic, comes out as homosexual and leaves her husband, a deacon, for her girlfriend, Tina.
On Tuesday’s episode, “Ain’t No Sunshine,” Jill is already dishonest on Tina simply after leaving Darren and is questioning if she ought to inform Tina or not. Her guilt consumes her and leads her into the confessional the place she receives a really shocking reply from the secretly homosexual priest who recites the rap lyrics she sang when she got here out publicly, and calls her a “hero” and an “inspiration:”
Jill: It has been three weeks since my final confession. They all the time say begin with probably the most tough sin, so… I cheated on my girlfriend. I cheated on the girlfriend that I cheated on my husband with. I am a cheater. And I like Tina. However am I able to quiet down once more immediately? What ought to I do? I imply, do I inform her? Do I inform Tina? Father?
Priest: You are an inspiration. “I by no means knew I’d find yourself kissing a lady. However because of you, I can inform the entire world.” I noticed the BET Awards.
Priest: I like God. I like professing the Gospel, however the Priesthood comes with… restrictions. You are a hero.
Jill: Are you cheerful, Father?
Priest: We’re requested to make sacrifices for God, and that was my alternative. However I typically marvel, what would my life be like if I used to be freed from expectations or restrictions?
Jill: Me too, Father. Me too.
Ahh, sure. What would the world seem like if all of us simply did what felt good and what we predict will make us completely satisfied with none “restrictions” or “expectations?” I think God is aware of precisely how that may end up. Actually, the Bible has given us examples of precisely what that may seem like and what the implications could be. One lady, Patti Top, recently gave her testimony about doing what she thought would make her completely satisfied and shopping for into the LGBTQ agenda that’s pervading our tradition and main many away from God. Her testimony about getting proper with God and the way He cherished and rescued her even within the midst of that way of life is extraordinarily highly effective.
These “restrictions” aren’t there to place a damper on our lives. They’re there to guard us and information us to proper residing, which results in the perfect reward of all… salvation. I believe I’ll hold following God’s “restrictions” and studying my Bible quite than following Hollywood’s thought of what Christianity ought to seem like.
