Certainly that’s one option.
I would say that another option is to infiltrate their territory and salt it down!
My daughter is moving to California to pursue a Master’s in Theater. (She’s been working in theater as a stage manager for several years.)
If she has the opportunity to work in TV or films, she will definitely give it a whirl. Unless the school was lying, she probably WILL have the opportunity to work for some pretty well-known writers during her matriculation.
It is our hope (and hers, as she is Catholic) that she will be a grain of salt that will help “flavor” whatever entertainment project she is involved in with godly values.
Don’t guffaw! For several years, she was involved in the conception, writing, and production of a piece of theater about gay Christians. Several people from the theater world were involved with the project, and because of HER and another man (a Christian man), this piece did NOT become a liberal whine-fest accusing all Christians of homophobia, and it did NOT present a one-sided viewpoint of homosexuality as “God’s beautiful plan for some people.”
Quite often during production meetings, my daughter and this other man spoke up and protested certain censorships and biased viewpoints.
For example, my daughter insisted that the project present the voice of the homosexual Christians who have chosen celibacy out of obedience to the Church–this was one of the most touching parts of the production.
Also, my daughter and this other man INSISTED that the production present a balanced picture of therapy to reorient homosexuals to heterosexuality.
The result of their “salty” influence was a well-balanced and compassionate production that sold out several venues and had shows added. It is being filmed and the film will premiere in October. Here is a link for anyone interested in the project:
My point is, Christians CAN and DO make a difference in the entertainment industry, and I believe that we need to help our children (or ourselves) discern whether they are called into these careers! If enough of us “lit a candle in the darkness,” the whole entertainment industry would light up!
