It's as predictable as an episode of Fuller House.
Last week, SNL aired a video short that parodied God's Not Dead II, and of course Pat Boone has run to the persecuted Christian's rescue. Boon is irate at the parody's sacrilege and sees it as proof of an anti-Christian bias in satirical media.
If you missed it, the Sectarian Review Podcast recently did an episode on this type of thing, called "Against Praise Movies." Rather than rehash that here, I'll let you listen for yourself.
In short, however, I think it is problematic that Christian Culture sees an aesthetic attack on hackneyed rubbish as an attack on Christianity itself. Certainly the systems of the world have an anti-Christian bias; that is pretty much the point of Christianity, isn't it? Rather than fight for our right to artistic opiates, however, perhaps we can find ways to stand against and possibly improve those systems that are truly oppressive?
No? Okay then.
