Why do the brains of Christians turn to mush when it comes to discerning the worldview messages conveyed by the entertainment fare? Children are given the escapist utopia in Disney—the shortcut to living happily ever after, which usually comes after discovering the good within yourself. The intensely moral themes present "pro-social values," but they certainly are not biblical values rooted in the fear of God or the love of God. In some cases, the dreams of self-fulfillment are supposed to be found in romantic love—another cruel, humanist, self-centered dream. We find more instances where Christian leaders are discerning too little too late about Hollywood and its friends.
