Hollywood is a cauldron of leftism.
People in Tinseltown want everyone to believe their progressive lifestyle is the norm.
But one superstar actor defied that convention when he revealed something personal.
Mark Wahlberg Opens Up
Mark Wahlberg has become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
That might’ve seemed impossible 30 years ago.
Back then Wahlberg went by the rapper stage name Marky Mark.
But Wahlberg crept into Hollywood and carved out a career as a respected actor.
Arguably Wahlberg’s most gripping role was playing the lead in the true story war film “Lone Survivor.”
Wahlberg is different from other celebrities.
Perhaps his strange path to leading man is the reason why.
While actors pat themselves on the back by giving political speeches at awards shows, Wahlberg is calling for them to do the opposite.
He also recently talked about his faith.
Wahlberg revealed his strict daily regimen to BBC news.
The thing that caught many people off guard is Wahlberg begins his day with 30 minutes of prayer.
Hostile Toward Christians
Leftists are very uncomfortable with Christianity.
They don’t even try to hide it.
They have activist groups dedicated to stamping out any whiff of God in the public space.
One activist group recently blocked a football coach in Georgia from praying with his team.
Despite the group’s best efforts, the players voluntarily chose to pray with the coach.
The only time leftists tolerate religion is when it serves their agenda.
Recently a sex scandal rocked the Catholic Church.
Pope Francis allegedly knew about abuse by the hands of a priest.
Normally liberals would use this opportunity to bash religion.
But Pope Francis believes in climate change and mass migration, so he must be protected.
The last time a scandal hit the Church, Hollywood turned it into the film “Spotlight” and gave it numerous Oscars.
But this time, nothing.
The left doesn’t like religious people because it’s harder to convince them to buy into their big-government ideology.
People don’t look to the state as a higher power if they believe in God.
It’s the reason why far-left governments immediately secularize their countries when they gain power.
Christian bakers and florists faced constant abuse for standing up for religious freedom.
But leftists believe they should be bullied into violating their Christianity.
Actor Andrew Garfield gave a speech at the Tonys where he ripped Jack Phillips, the Christian baker in Colorado, for his refusal to violate his Christian beliefs.
The crowd cheered.
This type of hostility toward Christians is common.
Not all Christians in Hollywood are conservative, and vice versa.
But they both receive status as the “other.”
Prominent Christians like Chris Pratt and Zachary Levi get work in big projects.
But many others are only in small, faith-based films.
Wahlberg speaking out about his prayer is a big deal.
It lets people know that not everyone in Hollywood is anti-religion.
