"Proving Hollywood knows very few Christian or Catholic pro-lifers, and has never researched the services they provide — free of charge — to women in crisis pregnancies." Hollywood knows virtually nothing of Christians, period. People fed on Hollywood's output often seem to think every Christian in the real world is like, say, the mother in "Carrie."

Hollywood is not in the business of "knowing" anything or portraying any person, group, or religion accurately. It is in the business of making money. That's it. There's no other agenda that takes priority. If people respond to shows like Parenthood and Carrie by making Hollywood money, then that's what they'll continue to make. It doesn't matter how accurate the material is. They're not selling truth and never have. They could care less, so long as what they produce makes money.

Is the bias you mentioned because of or in spite of the audience? Like I said, Hollywood is a business. They don't care in the slightest how people see their products or interpret them. They don't care in the slightest once the product is purchased. Is it not possible that the results you see are merely a product of pre-existing biases?

That, sir, is a good question. In most cases, it's probably half-and-half.

There is no "liberal agenda" in Hollywood. That's simply a straw man. As for abortion, I can list several fairly recent American movies that oppose it: "Juno," "Knocked Up," "Waitress."

In this 40th year of legalized abortion in America, Hollywood and Planned Parenthood want you to know abortion is no big deal.

That’s the message we’re to infer from the recent episode of NBC’s hit show “Parenthood” titled “Small Victories,” in which the teen character Amy casually decides to abort her baby because, as she explains to her boyfriend, “If I have this baby, my life is over.” Apparently the figurative end of her life would be a bigger deal than the literal end of a baby’s.

On the show, Amy’s boyfriend, Drew, objects to the abortion and tries to map...
