When the liberals who basically own Hollywood latch on to an issue they want to cram down the throats of the American people, they start stuffing things related to that topic from their point of view into every possible form of entertainment they can.

This is especially true when it comes to the progressive desire to normalize things like homosexuality and transgenderism, behaviors that every regular person knows is not normal, natural, or according to God’s design for His creation.

I know that line is going to get some hate, but I’m not in the business to make friends. I’m in it to tell the truth, to provide a Christian/conservative perspective on the issues of the day.

Part of the plan for making homosexuality seem more normal and acceptable is indoctrinating children, which is why you see so many stories now about schools reading kids books with gay characters in them or lessons discussing how it’s okay to think you’re a girl when you’re really a boy and all sorts of stuff.

It seems nothing is safe these days from this sort of agenda pushing, not even “Star Wars.” Director J.J. Abrams, who was recently announced to be taking over Episode IX of the legendary film series, is promising to include a few gay characters in the SW universe, which no doubt made the LGBTQ community celebrate.

via The Daily Wire:

Last year, Abrams told The Daily Beast: “When I talk about inclusivity it’s not excluding gay characters. It’s about inclusivity. So of course. I would love it. To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world.”

And the Beast is giddy with the possibility, penning an article titled: “Will J.J. Abrams Keep His Promise to Add Gay Characters to ‘Star Wars?’ The blockbuster filmmaker was just installed to direct ‘Star Wars: Episode IX.’ Now it’s time to follow through on his word.”

It’d be great to see not only a woman, POC or an LGBTQ director join Lucasfilm, but until then, we have to rely on Abrams to keep his promise. Kennedy and Boyega have teased a romance for Finn and Poe, and Abrams has said that there will be an LGBTQ character in the universe at some point. If not those two in Episode IX, the sky is the limit. It’s sci-fi and Kennedy and Abrams are crafting this universe themselves, calling all the shots. There’s no studio head above them to keep gay characters out of Star Wars, it’s just a matter of whether or not they want to make the effort.

So if your idea of inclusivity means not excluding gay characters like you said J.J., I’m looking forward to Star Wars: Episode IX debuting a gay couple that will rival the Babadook and Pennywise.

I’m going to say something that might shock the conservative folks here, but I feel this legitimately needs to be said.

I have no problem at all with homosexual characters being in movies, because, as Abrams said, they exist in the real world and it’s just not realistic to pretend like they aren’t here. They are still real people who have real problems, just like everyone else.

That being said, the problem arises when the homosexual character’s sexuality is portrayed as normal, right, even a heroic practice, as that defies nature and God’s design. If homosexuality were presented as what it really is, as a means of showing the dysfunction we’ve fallen into sexually due to the fall of humankind, well, that’s biblically accurate and true.

The same can be said for showing off adultery between heterosexual couples as something positive or healthy. There aren’t a lot of films that do this, but the few that do are just as wrong. On top of that, the culture’s obsession with loose sexual relationships without the commitment of marriage is also off kilter. However if such behavior is shown as childish and hurtful, well, that’s not a bad thing.

What makes the whole “Star Wars” deal bad is that this is aimed at children. Kids don’t need to be exposed to sexual topics at such an early age from a film. Parents should be the ones who educate their kids on these topics, not Hollywood. Movie makers are attempting to assert themselves in a position they have no business occupying.

The next question is whether or not such a move by Abrams would hurt the bottom line of the film at the box office. I highly doubt it.
