Podcast #11: Hollywood Hates Christians

Listen to this episode on our podcast page or most podcast platforms.

In the eleventh episode of The Babylon Bee podcast, editor-in-chief Kyle Mann and creative director Ethan Nicolle are joined by Brian Godawa for their first all-movie episode. They dig into the worldviews of various films and talk about how story is used to convey messages, sometimes more Christian than expected, and sometimes blatantly anti-Christian. For the main topic this week we talk about the anti-Christian bias in Hollywood. Is it real? Is it a conspiracy? How bad is it? 

(Sorry if this confuses you, but this is a real podcast, not a joke. However, this podcast is obviously hilarious from start to finish.)

Guest Brian Godawa is a screenwriter and novelist. He has done an amazing amount of work writing books and giving lectures dissecting the worldviews and themes of film. For more Brian Godawa:
