It’s an unfortunate reality in American society today that Christianity is frowned upon by a large sector in this country.
That’s especially true in the Godless town of Hollywood, California where any beliefs outside of liberal progressive ideologies are demonized and shamed.
Fortunately there are those like the CEO of My Pillow who wears his Christian faith like a badge of honor, ignoring the notion that he may lose clientele because of his prideful stance. And you won’t believe the pro-Christian move he just made.
Hollywood producing Christian films is about as rare as tagging a white-tailed deer on the opening day of hunting season.
One would think that it’s a common misnomer that the reason why Hollywood doesn’t produce more Christian faith-based films is because they are not very profitable. One would think that but it’s simply not true.
Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ still holds the record for being the highest grossing rated R movie of all time. Even 2016’s Deadpool fell short by $7 million dollars domestically and that’s a Marvel comic book movie.
The profit is there but that’s not the reason why CEO of My Pillow, Mike Lindell, invested $1 million of his own money into a pro-life movie tentatively titled Unplanned that intends to be critical of pro-abortiongiant Planned Parenthood.

You’ve probably seen Lindell touting his soft pillows on those commercials that frequently air on Fox News. Now, his company is one of the fastest growing in America – employing 1,600 people and has sold over 40 million pillows.
My Pillow is also the preferred pillow of President Donald J. Trump.
So you know it must be great.
Lindell proclaimed to the Hollywood Reporter about his new project, “I’m pro-life and I’m happy to do it.”
The synopsis of the film is a true story about an ex-Planned Parenthood health center director, Abby Johnson, who became a national pro-life leader and made it her life’s mission to eliminate taxpayer funding for the shameless organization.
Johnson once intelligently said, “But, if I’m totally honest, my main goal is not to defund Planned Parenthood. My main goal is not even to make abortion illegal. My goal is to make abortion unthinkable, so that women would know there are other options available and that there are real and reputable healthcare centers that can take care of all their healthcare needs.”
She also runs an organization called And Then There Were None – a ministry that helps abortion workers leave the industry.
It certainly sounds like Johnson’s story is one that’s aching to be put up on the big screen.
That’s probably why Lindell was happy to part with an enormous amount of money which reportedly makes up approximately a sixth of the budget.
And Lindell also has an alleged cameo role where his character bulldozes a former Planned Parenthood site to make way for a pro-life organization called 40 Days for Life. That is astounding metaphorical imagery of what’s on the horizon for the entirety of the Planned Parenthood organization.
Making movies might actually become a consistent hobby for Lindell too.
He also recently invested in an upcoming comedy starring Stephen Baldwin called Church People – about a youth pastor who is stuck in a megachurch marketing machine but is desperate to find his passion again.
It’s apparently easy to get Lindell to invest in your Christian faith-based movie because he once said, “I don’t get into things for the money. I get into them if the message is right.”
You can bet that Unplanned will be a good wholesome movie, but unfortunately it will probably be panned by Hollywood critics and ignored by Hollywood elitists because of its conservative Christian message.
Still, that doesn’t mean it won’t be profitable. Christians will flock to this one.
