(Republican Insider) – Progressives love to mock Christians. We know this is true by simply flipping through the television on a daily basis and seeing how the entertainment industry continues to push content that glorifies sinful behaviors like homosexuality and transgenderism, all the while painting up Christians to be crazy, right-wing extremists and the villains in their stories. There’s tons of examples of this, but let’s focus on something that just came out on Hulu, which is owned by Disney.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, a Republican congressman from Louisiana took an opportunity to rip the House of the Mouse (Disney) a new one over a cartoon they have released that features an Antichrist daughter and a mom who had sex with the devil. And this is billed as lighthearted, hilarious, comedic satire. Satanism is a real thing. Satan is a real being. Glorifying him and the debauchery he stands for is just one more indicator that our culture is on the slippery slope to hell and picking up speed.
Rep. Mike Johnson warned folks about the animated series which focuses on a mom, who got pregnant by Satan, and a daughter who is just your average teenage girl until strange things begin to happen, including the opening of a black hole.
“‘I couldn’t get to the remote fast enough to shield my 11-year-old from the preview, and I wonder how many other children were exposed to it – and how many millions more will tune in to the new series, owned and marketed by DISNEY,’ Johnson wrote Monday,” the report stated.
The full one minute long trailer for the show, “Little Demon,” features a number of satanic images, including people being skinned alive. Again, this is being played for laughs. If you didn’t already think there was something wrong with our culture, this program should help you get off the fence.
“Little Demon is an FX-created series streaming on Hulu. The comedy series features the voices of Audrey Plaza as Laura, Danny Devito as Satan, and his daughter, Lucky DeVito as Chrissy, their daughter,” the Daily Mail reported.
The FX Network’s description of the show reads, ‘Thirteen years after being impregnated by Satan, a reluctant mother, Laura, and her Antichrist Daughter, Chrisy, attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware, but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul.’
Here’s the trailer so you can see for yourself:
Congressman Johnson recounted that he was tuned in to the LSU game when the harrowing trailer aired on Sunday. He then did some quick research about the show and saw that it was being described as the Antichrist daughter developing powers to turn “school bullies into piles of goo.”
The narrative here is that Satan is the one who will bring justice for those who have been wronged by others. Take matters into your own hands, don’t try to go through the channels of justice God Himself has ordained (parents, government, school authorities). It’s casting God as someone who is sitting idly by watching evil happen and doing nothing about it, while painting Satan up to be the good guy who actually cares about humanity. Gee, I wonder which spiritual being influenced the creators of the show?
‘Please be careful. Our job as parents is to guard the hearts and minds of our kids,’ Johnson went on to write in a post concerning the trailer.
He added, ‘This culture has become alarmingly dark and desensitized, and this is not a game. Disney and FX have decided to embrace and market what is clearly evil. STAY FAR FROM IT.’
He then concluded his post with 1 Peter 5:8, which says, ‘Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.’
“Johnson’s post quickly reached 35,000 reactions from supporters and critics. Some applauded him for warning other parents while others told him to keep his ‘religion out of politics,'” the report noted. “The congressman followed up on Facebook on September 6 to share that his post was viewed by more than 6.13 million people.”
“Some of them are very unhappy, and that’s okay,” he said in the follow-up post. “Free speech is an important principle, and in this country, everyone can obviously make their own decisions about what media they and their families consume. ‘But a corollary is that Christian have the freedom to fulfill our obligation to ‘speak the truth in love’ (Eph. 4:15), even – and sometimes most importantly- when it may not be popular.”
As of right now, Hulu has posted up three episodes of the animated series.
According to a report from The Daily Signal, “With Disney’s apparent domestication of the demonic, Family Research Council’s Joseph Backholm, a fellow Christian parent, offered a biblical worldview perspective to The Washington Stand.”
“The ironic thing is, this is evidence of the spiritual war that the series is designed to make you think doesn’t exist. … The problem conceptually with making light of serious things is that you don’t take [them] seriously,” Blackholm stated in his response to the program.
“Biblically, we know that principalities and powers and demons are real, and they are an active enemy of us and our children’s soul. What Disney seems to be trying to do is get people to laugh at things that are very serious, and they’re trying to either make them believe they aren’t even real or not something you need to worry about. And that’s why you turn things into comedy,” he continued.
Blackholm then pointed out, “It’s very important that our children [aren’t] exposed to things that have the explicit or implicit message that Satan [and] demons are not things that we have to be concerned about. They need to understand that they have a real enemy. Christians don’t need to be afraid of that enemy, but we need to take it seriously. The fact [is], there is a war over our souls, and that’s what this seems to be designed to minimize.”
Perhaps the most important comment that Blackholm made was when he said, “There’s an old show called ‘The Usual Suspects’ that Kevin Spacey was in in the nineties. And one of the takeaway lines from that movie is, ‘The greatest trick the devil ever pulled is convincing the world he did not exist.’ [‘Little Demon’] seems designed to convince kids not to worry about the enemy of their souls. And if their guard is down, that makes them very vulnerable, which is exactly where he wants them to be.”
Guard your hearts, folks.
