Actor Rainn Wilson, best known for his role as Dwight Schrute in the popular sitcom “The Office,” recently spoke out against the anti-Christian bias in Hollywood. In a tweet, Wilson called out the HBO show “The Last of Us” for having a Christian character that turned out to be a cannibal and a rapist.

In a tweet that sparked major debate, Wilson wrote,

“I do think there is an anti-Christian bias in Hollywood. As soon as the David character in “The Last of Us” started reading from the Bible I knew that he was going to be a horrific villain. Could there be a Bible-reading preacher on a show who is actually loving and kind?”

Wilson, who typically seems to align himself with liberal ideologies, received major criticism for this tweet.

One Twitter user whose biography identifies themself as “Idaho’s leading socialist” suggested that Christians deserve to be portrayed negatively because they “have used their religion to take away women’s autonomy” as they fight to “dismantle libraries and stop healthcare for trans people.”

“This feels very tone deaf to those of us who live in heavily red states,” they said.

Fox News soon picked this story up and reported on it, causing Wilson to go after them for their own “bias,” calling them “an organization created as a corporate shill to create division solely for profit based on culture-war outrage.”

Following up on his original tweet, however, Wilson clarified that he is not a Christian, but said that most Christians he knows are “kind, accepting and loving and seeking to make the world a better place.”

“They should also be honored in the media,” he added.

Despite his follow-up statements, people continued to pour out hatred for Christians which has become acceptable to do in today’s society. For some reason, all religions must be accepted and all people must be celebrated… but straight people, white people, and Christian people are fair game.

“I don’t know any Christians who aren’t horribly judgmental and biased,” One hateful, hypocritical Twitter user said. “They’re doing horrible things and your tweet has done damage. Congrats. Used to respect you.”

Although some tried to open her eyes to how close-minded and prejudiced she was being, she insisted that most Christians are bad people.

Imagine the reaction people would have if “Christian” was replaced with “Muslim” or “Jewish.”
