Video: Has Stephen Baldwin Been Blacklisted Because of His Christian Faith?
I laugh when I hear born-again Christians complain that they are persecuted for their faith. Christianity is the predominate religion in America, and professing to be a Christian will open doors for you, not close them.
"Alec Baldwin may have the high flying career but his brother, Stephen, has God on his side.
The born-again actor who hasn`t had a hit film since 1995`s `The Usual Suspects` is now taking on the role of Christian martyr.
Since December, `The Restoration of Stephen Baldwin` Web site has been asking for donations in order to `restore` Baldwin`s career.
The video compares the 43-year-old actor to Job, the biblical figure who remained faithful to God despite being stripped of everything he valued. For his faith, Job was eventually restored to his previous position of wealth." Read more
If Stephen Baldwin wants to experience real persecution, he should convert to atheism or the wiccan religion.
Stephen has been relegated to cable TV reality shows because he`s a lousy actor, not because of his religious beliefs.
The video compares the failed actor to Job, but the Biblical figure stoically endured his trials and tribulations, he didn`t whine and moan like the least talented Baldwin brother.
Baldwin hasn`t been blacklisted, producers simply don`t want to hire a 3rd-rate actor with no fan base.
There are plenty of successful evangelical entertainers, these are just a few of the ones that come to mind:
You can`t get much bigger than Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers, obviously embracing the evangelical faith is no impediment to success in Hollywood.

The video was privately funded.
