It’s not enough for most Hollywood elitists that they were given the opportunity to become wildly successful, rich and famous in the good ol’ United States of America. Many of them use their platform to trample on America, Republicans and even Christianity.
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence managed to do just that recently. The “Hunger Games” mega-star recently used her celebrity popularity to make fun of the state of Kentucky — where she was born and placed on her path to success.
In a recent interview with Vogue magazine, Lawrence said that Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was jailed over her choice to not sign off on gay marriage licenses, made her feel “embarrassed to be from Kentucky.”
“Don’t even say her name in this house,” said Lawrence. “All those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they’re fighting the good fight. I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are.”
She continued her tirade by switching her negative thoughts to the Republican party — a party she claims “doesn’t support women’s basic rights.” According to Lawrence, she was raised as a Republican, but obviously didn’t take any time to research what the party stands for — or much of anything else, for that matter.
Lawrence took a quick shot at the state of gay marriage in the United States.
“It’s 2015 and gay people can get married and we think that we’ve come so far, so, yay!” she said. “But have we? I don’t want to stay quiet about that stuff.”
Trashing American Christians, who make up a bulk of one’s viewing audience at the box office, probably isn’t the best idea when her bank account depends on those pesky, crucifix-pitchfork wielding Bible-thumpers buying tickets to her productions.
It may not be Christian of me to say this, but I truly hope my fellow Christians will remember what this brat said when her next movie hits your local theater.
