Plain old American empowerment.
You could actually call the writers and the production, “Christophobic”
Substitute an Islamic “call-to-prayer” for every tolling church-bell; a line from the Muslim-trifecta (Koran/Sunnah/Hadith) for every New Testament quote, and then I’d say Hulu has a winner with the cautionary- “The Handmaid’s Tale.” But as it stands? It’s a Hate+Hit piece which slanders all Christians, but particularly Protestants.
If only the creatives involved (and the sure-to-be-legions of fans) had an ounce of shame, they could wake up before this nightmare scenario comes true. They won’t, because they actually expect it to be Christians “stretching necks” and gouging out eyes and clitorises(sp?).
Saudi Arabia, the Feminists’ Paradise
I saw reference to some “women’s rights” thing and Saudi Arabia yesterday, but I thought it was (another) U.N. joke. Wrong.
The UN has announced that Saudi Arabia will be a part of the Commission on the Status of Women, the intergovernmental body dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women. That’s right, Saudi Arabia.
The country so committed to women’s liberation that it ranks 141/144 for gender equality in the World Economic Forum’s 2016 Global Gender Gap report. That’s third place from the bottom. This may have something to do with the fact that women cannot drive and need permission from a male guardian to travel, work, marry, access healthcare and even leave prison. Hillel Neuer of UN Watch summed it up with the comment, “Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief”.

Here are two video that will quickly clue you in on Saudi Arabia – from the perspective of Sandra Solomon, a woman who grew up there. I just happened to “meet” up with her, twice in as many days, vis two of my favorite YT channels:
The Graphic that “inspired” my graphic
It was January 14, 2017, when I discovered a new version of “The Handmaid’s Tale” was scheduled to air this year. Since I was still weeks away from finishing the first draft of my new novella, “An Election Carol,” I hated that I couldn’t drop everything and fire off a fictional response-volley towards Margaret Atwood’s 1986 novel.
UNLESS the new trailers are depicting a satire, it will certainly demand a response…
Atwood’s entire premise was delusional in 1986’s America, but today? Even more so. Think back to the mid-1980’s: America’s most well-known Christian organization, The Moral Majority, never had all that much political pull, despite all the hullabaloo. Even Wikipedia reveals it was kaput by the late-80’s. And as for the 2016 election and the feared Fourth-Reich with Trump-hitler at the helm? We can all see the neo- “con” that’s turning out to be…
“The Handmaid’s Tale,” was a first for me – I call it Christian-Theocracy-Porn (the film version of “V-for-Vendetta,” fits the genre, also). I expect this 2017 version to get fairly graphic; it will be easy to incorporate a number of the handmaidens’ bedroom scenes, and it makes perfect Hollywood-sense to do so. “50 Shades…” has shown there’s a big appetite among the Western world’s women for coercive sex. The Hulu trailers on YouTube have already provided a couple of quote-gems:
With my novella’s final edits getting accepted today, I’m free to man the battle-stations and pull out my reviewer’s notebook for the Hulu “porno” premiere tonight. I just can’t wait to see how bravely they step out and how boldly they step into the Handmaiden-shoes Hollywood has let collect dust for nearly 30 years.
BUT, BUT, BUT…How will the writers and producers dare take New Testament Bible Scriptures in vain? Don’t they fear sleeper-cells of mad-Christian-men? Are they prepared to fight off Chalie Hebdo style anti-free-speech fanatics, like in Paris? And just how far over backwards will the “creatives” at Hulu have to bend, all to avoid creating any resemblance to the actual world of “disturbed” Islamics we live in…and where we get run over…and sliced-up, and blown-up, and every-which-way-murdered?
We non-Muslims, we so-called infidels, have suffered more than 30,000 attacks by “misunderstanders of Islam” since September 11, 2001. Just how far into the sand will “The Handmaid’s Tale” stick its pretty little head in order to avoid all of that truth?
I guess we’ll see.
