Kyle Reece: Listen, and understand. That Terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead. (The Terminator, 1984)

The thing that Hollywood portrays most accurately is the relentlessness of evil. That’s ironic, because Hollywood is so often a tool of evil, but to paraphrase what we conservatives like to say in defense of guns, "Hollywood doesn’t kill righteousness, people do," and the film industry can be just as powerful a force for good as it is for evil. Its so-often accurate portrayal of evil is a case in point in that Hollywood has infused our popular culture with many unforgettable iconic scenes and images of evil (e.g., "The Borg," "Alien," the "Body Snatchers") that rival even the stories of the Bible as "cautionary tales." These are genuine warning signs about what evil really looks like – especially the implacable relentlessness of evil.

Whether people heed those warnings often comes down to the effectiveness of the church in contrasting that evil with the goodness of God – something that is almost never depicted by Hollywood (but increasingly is depicted accurately by a rising tide of independent film companies).

I happen to be in Springfield, Massachusetts this week where my ministry is still officially based, although I live in the Memphis area now. One of my favorite places here is just north of Springfield: the huge, forested dog park on the grounds of the former Northampton State Hospital, bordered on one side by a picturesque small river across from which is the grounds of the ultra-ultra leftist Smith College, where years ago a speech by my former Board Member Ryan Sorba on his book "The Born-Gay Hoax" was shut down by rabid, screaming protestors who broke a window to get in.

I went to the dog park for my early morning walk Monday to meditate on the theme of the relentlessness of evil as represented in the phenomenon of Cultural Marxism. I composed the first paragraph of this article in my head on that walk. However, I was again reminded that God has a sense of humor in that as soon as I entered the forest I was besieged by literally hundreds of mosquitos. As someone who tries to avoid putting bug spray on my skin, I’ve gotten pretty good at fending off the flying pests with a small leafy branch (a "cow-tail" if you will) but in this case there were so many and they were so relentless that I was forced to abandon my walk after a quarter mile or so and retreat to my car – swishing my cow-tail like a Jedi Knight in a hail of laser blasts.
