NBC went there. The freshman comedy Superstore went out of its way to offend Christians by having characters opine on Jesus’ beliefs about gays – including suggesting that Jesus Himself was gay!
To set the scene, in the episode “Wedding Day Sale,” Glenn, the religious store manager, enlists the help of Mateo, a gay employee, in creating a special gay wedding section. Glenn explains, “I just want everyone who comes into this store to feel accepted,” which is a fine sentiment and a great way for a manager to treat his customers.
But it leads to this discussion about Jesus being pro-gay marriage, pro-gay adoption, and maybe was even gay himself – a statement that FINALLY makes Glenn uncomfortable.
-Mateo: You know, I have to say, you’re much more open-minded than I thought.
-Glenn: Thank you. People assume all Christians are homophobes. You know, that is ignorant. You can’t imagine how hard it is being stereotyped.
-Glenn: I mean, if anything, Jesus went out of his way to accept everyone.
-Mateo: I think Jesus would’ve been pro-gay marriage.
-Glenn: Absolutely. He would’ve been pro-gay adoption.
-Mateo: For all we know, Jesus himself was gay.
This is not the first time that Hollywood has purposely lied to extend their agenda to the world.
TV shows like The Big Bang theory have continually promoted gay and evolution topics but this would be the first time that they admittedly suggested that Christ was gay to promote the acceptance of gay unions in Church.
For any Christian, this is the time you should let go of the movies and start reading your bible. The end times are truly here.
