While holly is a type of tree, I find the similarity between the words "holly" and "holy" interesting. Anyone who has read the Old Testament
knows that a trees were frequently associated with pagan idolatry. For example:
KJV 2 Kings 17:9-11
17:9 And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against the LORD their God, and they built them high places in all
their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.
17:10 And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and under every green tree
17:11 And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as did the heathen whom the LORD carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to
provoke the LORD to anger:
Hollywood cares about more than just making money. If that was truly all they cared about, they would make more Biblically based films. Look how
much money the Passion made. Protestant Christians are so starved for such cinema that they went and saw a film that was 100% Catholic and were
brainwashed by their pastors/mind-controllers to believe it was a good thing. Everyone in this world has an agenda. Everyone starts their day hoping
to accomplish something, whether its simply to earn enough money to eat and pay the bills, to find love, or to build a better rocket ship. It stands
to reason that people who are more intelligent and complicated have more intelligent and complicated agendas. Many more people watch television and
movies than read newspapers and novels, thus Hollywood has a tremendous amount of influence and power over the general populace. Anyone who believes
that this power would not be used by those in the ruling class to accomplish their goals is naive.
As far as the apparently anti-Christian Hollywood stance, here's some information which may provide clues as to why this is so.
William Fox (born Wilhelm Fried in January 1, 1879 - 1952) was the founder of Fox Film Corporation, now 20th Century Fox.
Wilhelm Fried was born to German Jewish parents in Tulchva, Austria-Hungary.
He set up the Fox Film Corporation in 1915.
Marcus Loew - Movie theather magnate. "the son of Jewish Austrian immigrants"
Louis B. Mayer - Studio boss. "Born Eliezer Meir [Jewish name] in Minsk, Russia, (now Belarus)"
Irving Thalberg - Head of production. Also a Jew.
Adolph Zukor founded Paramount Pictures Studios in 1913. "He was born in Hungary of Jewish parents, and came to this country when 16 years old."
Carl Laemmle - founder. "German-born Jew "
"The Hollywood film industry's founders were mainly Jewish refugees from Eastern and Central Europe with their American progeny."

Harry Cohn - Founder. "The son of an immigrant Polish-Jewish tailor,"
Henry, Albert, Sam, and Jack.
Jack was "the youngest of 12 children of Jewish immigrants from Poland "

So, it seems that the majority of the major Hollywood production studios were started by men of Jewish lineage. If anyone is not aware of this,
Judaism is in fact a vehemently anti-Christian religion. That may be the reason for the apparent bias against Christianity in Hollywood.
