What is it about Hollywood elites who just can’t help but to show how intolerant and anti-liberty-oriented they really are? It seems like the more fame and fortune they have, the more eager they are to hurl a good insult at the very audiences who have helped them get to where they are.
The first time I saw Jennifer Lawrence was in the 2012 hit dystopian adventure The Hunger Games. Kids absolutely loved the movie, as did adults who found themselves taken in by the courageous bow and arrow wielding Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) whose mission was to survive in a violent totalitarian society.
Although highly interpretive, many Christian viewers likened the movie to a Biblical story, complete with self-sacrifice, hope, death, resurrection, and even Bread of Life iconography. For some, the movie was also prophetic in that they now see America increasingly moving further into a “secular, post-Christian cultural space.” Needless to say, The Hunger Games quickly became the centerpiece of many Sunday sermons and Bible studies.
As for Jennifer Lawrence, she couldn’t have dreamed up a better star promoting role. Just one year later in 2013, she won an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Lead Role for Silver Linings Playbook. Today, she’s the world’s highest paid actress having earned a whopping $52,000,000 this year.
Now blessed with her own fame and fortune, Lawrence suddenly got the itch to sound off during a recent interview with Vogue Magazine. Predictably, she towed the same old anti-Christian and anti-Republican line so many other Hollywood celebrities have done before her.
During the interview, Lawrence revealed herself as the ultimate egotistical snob when she told Vogue that she was “embarrassed to be from Kentucky.” Why? Because of a devout Christian woman named Kim Davis, a Kentucky County Clerk, who couldn’t in good conscience issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. “Don’t even say her name in this house,” continued Lawrence.
