What has caused people to not have a Biblical worldview and to edit the Ten Commandments to please one’s self? Maybe it’s not just the preacher you listen to. A study of 104 leading television writers and executives conducted by the center for media and public affairs found that Hollywood’s views run far from the mainstream of public opinion. For instance while 85% of Americans believe adultery is wrong only 49% of T V’s writers and executives do. Only 59% of Americans believe a woman has a right to an abortion compared to 97% of Hollywood’s executives. Only 4% of Americans claim no religious affiliation but 45% of the TV writers and executives have no religious affiliation.
