If you’re a Christian, you’ve probably felt it: Hollywood’s intolerance of Christianity, whether by a snarky comment made on an awards show or a dig in a comedy movie or television show.

About an hour into the podcast, as Joe Rogan and Matthew McConaughey are discussing the Bible, McConaughey explains that he finds passages to be useful. In response, Joe Rogan brings up how people in Hollywood tend to focus on how people can sometimes use the Bible to harm people, and how they can take verses out of context and use them to manipulate.

He explains how much of Hollywood willfully avoids talking about the positives of Christianity or ways the Bible has been used for good by people.

McConaughey agrees about Hollywood’s intolerance of Christianity and explains some of his experience as an actor.

Matthew McConaughey on Joe Rogan compares this phenomenon to how we relate to our father figures. Speaking of Joe Rogan’s stepfather in particular, McConaughey says, “When he [dies], you’ll find out the messenger and the message weren’t exactly in simpatico,” linking his fingers together to provide a picture. “…Does that mean that you throw the messenger out…?”

Continuing on, “No, you take the message…that can work for you…I don’t think it makes any sense to throw out the whole [Bible].” McConaughey explains that just because the messenger didn’t know quite how to integrate the message into his life, that doesn’t mean the message itself is wrong.
