      So, in Hollywood vs. America, Medved has devised a conspiracy theory, and it's a real lollapalooza: the entire entertainment industry, under the control of the "militant secular humanists" who run it, is zealously - even monomaniacally - devoted to the destruction of family values. from the book Hollywood vs. America is "The Attack on Religion." In this part of the book, Michael Medved discusses the shift in attitude Hollywood has made toward religion, from acceptable to contemptible. He takes a look at the messages being sent in films, music and television in the last 15 to 20 years and analyzes their effects.
