A couple of days ago Brett McCracken, the pastor of Southlands Brea Church and Senior Editor and Director of Communications at The Gospel Coalition released his best and favorite films of 2021 list. While there were some benign films that were relatively clean, his top 20 featured a whole bunch that were rated ‘R”, for language, violence, and frequently for scenes of sex and nudity.
Now, McCracken has blessed us with his list of favorite TV shows, and one caught our eye. Right after mentioning ‘The Chosen,’ the miniseries about the life of Jesus, he listed The White Lotus, which is a program on HBO that is Rated TV-M. The show is the functional equivalent to-rated ‘R’ and is deemed unsuitable for those under the age of 17.
The rating makes sense, as the 6-episode show contains tons of filthy language, sex jokes, sex scenes, copious amounts of male nudity, and some female nudity as well. Here is an overview from Commonsense Media:
In fact, and this is what is especially revolting, (warning, graphic description ahead) at one point there is a graphic sex scene featuring two fully nude men, and one has his face in the back-end of the other, doing very homosexual things to his anus with his mouth.)
We’ve been able to pinpoint this scene to near the middle, which means even after he watched it, he kept on watching more episodes, understanding that he very well may see more of this content in the rest of the season.
We wonder if he watched this tv show before or after he watched The Chosen. Are they on the same night? Did he watch them back to back with a clear conscience?
Tell us, pastor. We’d love to know.
A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
