We talked about Lady Antebellum changing their name to Lady A. Well there are days you just can’t win and this update proves you can’t please every black person.
#1. Blues artist Lady A blasts Lady Antebellum for stealing her name: ‘For them to not even reach out is pure privilege‘ https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/blues-artist-lady-a-blasts-lady-antebellum-for-stealing-her-name-for-them-to-not-even-reach-out-is-pure-privilege-022627826.html
You just can’t make this stuff up. Lady Antebellum had to know this performer still existed as she just put out another album in 2018 and one is coming out this July:
While this gesture may have been well intentioned, unfortunately, it turns out that the band’s new moniker is also problematic. The stage name “Lady A” already belongs to a 61-year-old black woman who has released several albums over the past two decades. The Seattle blues singer’s most recent release is Doin’ Fine, from 2018, and she has a new record, Lady A: Live in New Orleans, set to come out on July 18.
When you try to please someone other than God, you just won’t win.
#2. Want an Oscar? Better be inclusive. Academy to make diversity requirements part of awards eligibility. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/academy-awards-oscars-motion-picture-academy-oscarssowhite-black-lives-matter-diversity-inclusion-eligibility-requirements-181258178.html
This is part of the + section of the title. Another shining example that liberals, leftists and democrats are not qualified to handle power no matter where they get it.
In order to get an Oscar, you now need to alter your film to included people not right for the role, people who may not have talent. and soon. This group of people keeps attacking conservative white movie makers for their lack of diversity yet fail to call out black movie and television shows for their lack of white actors and actresses in those shows.
They also forget that John Wayne, a very big conservative, cast people he disagreed with politically and ideologically simply because they were right for the part. These people were not cast for their ideological beliefs or color of skin but because they had talent and could pull the role off right.
Three of the biggest names he cast were Rock Hudson,. Kirk Douglas and Glen Campbell. If you want true inclusive attitudes, Jesus accepts everyone who repents of their sins but the key is to give up your practice of sin and acceptance of it first.
#3.Harry Potter’ Screenwriter Steve Kloves Speaks Out on J.K. Rowling’s Anti-Trans Views (EXCLUSIVE) https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/harry-potter-screenwriter-steve-kloves-220445314.html
We have read different articles about her comments and it seems she is standing alone, which is too bad. While we do not like Harry Potter books and movies Ms. Rowling did not say anything bad. Her words:
I want trans women to be safe,” Rowling said in a essay she posted to her website on June 10. “At the same time, I do not want to make natal [i.e. cisgender] girls and women less safe. When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman … then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside. That is the simple truth.”
Then the words of the man the article is about:
Our diversity is our strength,” Kloves says in an exclusive statement to Variety. “In these challenging times, it’s more important than ever that transgender women and men, and people who are non-binary, feel safe and accepted for who they are. It seems very little to ask.”
Transgender, homosexuality, etc., are sin. They are not strengths but weaknesses.Jesus loves these people but his love does not mean they remain trapped in their sins and disobedience to God.
But as the Bible says there will be people who are willingly deceived and these pro transgender people are just the tip of the iceberg
#4.Amazon Might Pull ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ From IMDb TV Free Streaming Service Over Confederate Flag Imagery https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/amazon-might-pull-dukes-hazzard-154541221.html
The pulling down of confederate statues, changing the names of college buildings, proposed changing the name of Army bases and so on is wrong. All those actions prove is that people cannot forgive those who may have caused harm to others.
You do not rewrite history because you think you can’t deal with the reality of the past. You forgive those people and learn from Christ how to be better. There are so many different evil activities still taking place right now that those worried about an old flag should be doing something about.
There is a modern slave trade, there are pirates in different parts of the world, there is genocide taking place by Muslims in Africa, there is sex trafficking and so much more.
These people are not being anything but self righteous in their attacks on anything to do with the Civil War era South. They are also ignoring the problems they could do something about- illiteracy is still a problem in America, as is black on black crime, along with so many other issues that need their attention.
Yet they would rather attack long dead people who won’t feel a thing and cannot change their words or actions. These protesters and the corporations who make these entertainment moves are just embarrassing themselves and showing they have nothing to offer anyone.
The actions of the democrats, the BLM organization, the Oscar board of governors and other similar groups do not care about the people they are fighting. They just want their way to be implemented in the country but their way i snot of God and just brings more sin, evil, injustice and more.
We will say that we do watch some Hollywood shows. We have just recently discovered the McBride series which seems to be well done. We like certain shows but mostly prefer shows from the 80s on back to the 30s.
Mainly because modern politics is not involved, the actors had talent, the writers could write good shows and the plots were good. We rarely watch modern movies or television shows because with the exception of a few, the writing, acting, and plots are not there.
We also do not like how the different shows promote sinful and evil activities. We actually liked the Hays Rule which barred production companies from having evil win even though in real life it doesn’t happen that way.
What has furthered turned us off of movies, the Oscars, and other award shows, and so on, are all the celebrities thinking they can tell us how to vote, what to think, who to make friendships with, who we can hire or not fire and so on.
Their lives certainly do not contain the expertise needed to make those preachy announcements. Since they are not of God, we do not listen to celebrities when they make those announcements. They have as little to offer the world as the above mentioned groups.
It is best that the celebrities learn about God and Jesus first and then make better decisions about their own lives. As Psalms 1:1 says Blessed are they who walk not in the council of the ungodly and so far very few celebrities, democrats, BLM members and so on are godly
