The Big Bang theory seems to be a show that people either love or hate. There’s really no middle ground. Regardless if you love it or hate it, TBBT is a massive show when it comes to audience. It’s just a fact.
It’s also a fact that most of Hollywood is overwhelmingly liberal and lash out at anyone, regardless of religious affiliation, when they do something faith oriented.
Enter Mayim Bialik. She plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the popular show, and you may know her from her 90s show “Blossom” as well. She is Jewish and has shown support for Israel and has donated money to Israel’s Defence Forces in the past. Now she’s speaking out about Hollywood’s liberal intolerance of anything faith based.
Chicks on the Right has the story.
And it’s not just the fans giving her grief. Hollywood isn’t really big on all of this either.
‘I think in general it’s never going to be trendy to be observant or religious in Hollywood circles,’ she said. ‘There are people I know of faith and we tend to congregate together. I study Jewish texts weekly. That’s something really positive to me when you’re a person of faith, it stays with you all the time.’
‘In terms of my observance, my social media shuts down for [the Sabbath] and sometimes we go to the synagogue, sometimes we stay at home and we do [Sabbath dinners],’ she explained. ‘I believe in [Jewish law] but I also believe in the permeability and changeability in the structure of Jewish law and I think Judaism has always adjusted to the times that it lived in and it’s adjusting in the time we are in now.’
Bialik has a degree in neuroscience, which leads to a lot of questions surrounding her faith. Because how can you believe in God AND science?
In my opinion, science backs up the existence of God, not the other way around.
‘Being a scientist and a person of faith, people want to know how that is. It leads to a lot of interesting conversations that I welcome but a lot of people want to open up a conversation just to tell you, you’re wrong,’ she said.
We salute you, Mayim, for having the courage to speak out against liberal hatred of anything faith based in Hollywood and show that you’re not afraid to stand up for what’s right and your own faith. You’re truly a great American and may god bless you!
