Hollywood is a heavily secular industry.

Those who express Christian beliefs are often ostracized or outright blacklisted.

And now actor Kelsey Grammer may have sealed his fate in Hollywood after he uttered seven heartwarming words about his faith.

Kelsey Grammer, star of the classic sitcoms Cheers and Frasier, has been able to carve out an incredibly successful career in Hollywood while maintaining conservative viewpoints – a feat few have ever pulled off.

For instance, Grammar is deeply pro-life.

In 2018, he said that it “gets a bit dishonest to call something reproductive rights when you clearly have a choice well before a baby is conceived.”

“If someone has to die as a result of rape, then we should kill the rapist – not the unborn child,” he added. “It’s a dicey area, but if you have respect for life, and respect for choice, then you can’t take life away from an infant.”

Recently, while discussing his new movie Jesus Revolution, Grammer said, “Jesus made a difference in my life.”

Few in Hollywood speak so bluntly about their Chrisitian beliefs. 

“I’ve had hiccups,” Grammer admitted in an interview. “I’ve had some tragic times. I have wrestled with those and worked my way through them.”

“Sometimes rejecting faith, sometimes rejecting God even, in a period of being pretty angry about it,” he continued. “Like, ‘Where were you?’ That kind of thing. But I have come to terms with it and have found great peace in my faith and in Jesus… It’s not cavalier. Jesus made a difference in my life. That’s not anything I’ll apologize for.”

Others in Hollywood do not always share the actor’s perspective.

Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey recently revealed that he’s seen Christians in Hollywood be afraid to express their faith because of the anti-Christian bigotry in the industry.

“I have had moments where I was on stage receiving an award in front of my peers in Hollywood, and there were people in the crowd that I have prayed with before dinners many times, and when I thanked God, I saw some of those people go to clap, but then notice that, ‘bad thing on my resume’ and then sit back on their hands,’” McConaughey said.

Despite Hollywood’s aversion to Christianity, audiences are still starved for faith-based content.

Jesus Revolution, the story of a Christian revival in the early 1970s started by young hippies in Southern California, was only projected to make $7 million at the box office during its opening weekend.

But in reality, the film pulled in nearly $16 million for its opening weekend, and has thus far pulled in $35 million in total.

On the film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, Jesus Revolution received a positive “fresh” score of 62% amongst critics, while the audience gave it a score of 99%.

Jesus Revolution was a breath of fresh air,” one reviewer wrote. “We are so in need of great Christian films and the fact that it is historical is a bonus. Thanks for a great experience!”

“It was an uplifting Christian movie,” another wrote. “We want more movies like this. We want to see movies that have Christian values. So tired of the darkness in so many movies and the evil.”

It’s an encouraging sign that Kelsey Grammer was able to express his faith in a film, and audiences were encouraged to go see it.
