It is surreal to observe the sudden current moralistic Hollywood meltdown over sexual indiscretions, perhaps long overdue; that it comes at a time when Christians are becoming less moralistic (e.g. electing Donald Trump, and shrugging at Roy Moore), is extremely amusing.
The Left’s inability to practice grace and forgiveness, and leave ultimate judgment up to God, is nothing new, though; witness the fanaticism with which Nazi-hunters like Simon Wiesenthal and his ilk have always gone after old men rotting away in obscurity in places like Argentina and Brazil, arguing that there shouldn’t be any statute of limitations whatsoever on their Nazi-era misdeeds. Progs don’t forgive because progs aren’t orthodox Christians who actually are capable of believing in forgiveness and reconciliation, and much of Hollywood are of The Tribe – after all, they started Hollywood – and secularized liberal ones at that, who seek a social justice proggy ‘messianic kingdom’ instead of a Messiah any more – and we see what kind of hell their SJW ilk have created these days – and the lack of grace and forgiveness in their doxing campaigns, etc.
So pass the popcorn; watching Hollywood melt down is vastly more entertaining than any of the shit they’re producing these days. 😉

When disturbing stories about respected artists come from the distant past, we treat them dispassionately, as just one detail among many. Present tense or near-present tense revelations hit us differently because we share the same world as the artist, breathe the same air, feed the same economy. We think of them as contemporaries, even as people we know. This kind of…
