    I am not sure what the point of this article is, but I think we can all agree that the entire Hollywood culture is completely depraved and totally lost. Therefore, we should pray that God would open the eyes to the blind, and they would all repent of their sin and turn to Christ. Now THAT would be something worth celebrating!

    Jason-Amen/very well said! It’s not just in Hollywood. I meet person after
    person that claims to be Christian yet they still get drunk,gossip and covet,
    are jealous,be mean,gamble,sleep around because bad mouthin religion
    backfired and people are spiritual instead of Biblical. We all must Repent!

  • The point of the article is for a writer with no non-derivative opinions to tell the world she shares the same silly shticks as college apparatchiks and Pinch Sulzberger.

    Thanks for the article, Laura! For those of you that commented already I recommend listening to a wonderful podcast episode from NPR about internet trolls. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/545/transcript. Karla, I hope you’re not really saying that in order to “claim” being a Christian you must not be someone who does anything on your list….that’s sounds a little hypocritical and elitist don’t you think?

    Evan-Bible says if you have a sharp tongue your reilgion is worthless and yet
    we have a nation of mean spirited people who get drunk,sleep around and of
    course be mean/don’t bridle their tongue so yes the Bible says that all those
    who practice any type/kind of sin/don’t Repent go to hell. We all fall short so
    nobody is perfect but 1 Corinthians 6:9-12 lists all of those who won’t inherit
    the kingdom of heaven unless they Repent/get washed in the blood of Jesus!

    Ephesians 5:18 says don’t get drunk and 1 Corinthians 6:10 says that all of
    the drunkards/the sexually immoral go to hell unless they stop getting drunk
    and having premarital sex/sleepin around. John 2:10 says that all the cheap
    wine was brought out last so best for last refers to poorer/watered down wine
    and the wine Jesus made was a new wine/diluted/made for a symbolic reason
    not to get drunk! The Bible also says don’t get drunk on strong wine/don’t get
    drunk with wine for it is debauchery so all of the people who still get drunk on
    strong wine are all wrong/go to hell unless they all Repent! We must Repent!

    Luke 13 says we’re known by our fruit and the fruit is the fruit of Repentance
    not good works becasue many non-believers do good works so read a Bible.
    Only one guy next to Jesus on the Cross went to heaven because only one
    guy Repented/had a change of heart about his sin so yes we must Repent!
    All sin is wrong not just abortion and homosexuals which many people only
    talk about gay marriage or abortion so their sin doesn’t seem so bad but all
    sins are bad/wrong need to stop and be Repented of. We all must Repent!
    1 Corinthians 6:9-12 lists many sins right along with all of the homosexuals.
    Bible says Repent and believe the Gospel to be saved! We all must Repent!

    Karla – Your comments are only valid to people who believe in the infallibility of the Bible. You do, I don’t. I practice a more “godly” life than many Christians I know, less than some perhaps, but I don’t need a promise of more than this moment, or today – or eternity – to make the correct moral life decisions. I think my point is that your sharing your knowledge of the Bible has a limited audience, therefore a limited efficacy with regard to whatever your particular position is. Which I’m not clear on. Live for today – be kind to people, as you would have them be kind to you. (Yes, Biblical, but also humane good sense.) Works more often than not.

    Karla – I hope you don’t have a son who is “stubborn and rebellious.” Deuteronomy 21:21 directs that such a son who refuses to obey or heed his parents’ discipline shall be taken to the elders of the village, who will stone him to death, so to “purge the evil from your midst;”
