I have largely avoided talking about the whole college scandal story going on with actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin because I could not care less about the problems of Hollywood Leftists, but I felt it necessary to say a little something here because of some of the comments that Loughlin’s family has made about the entire fiasco.
To summarize the entire thing as best I can, Loughlin and Huffman face charges for bribing the University of Southern California (USC) into letting their kids attend the school. Obviously, it was wrong and the two are paying the price for their illegal actions, but I do not care all that much about that. College, for the most part, is a cesspool of Left-wing garbage, so I couldn’t care less about the incestuous relationships that are present between Leftist schools and Leftist Hollywood elites.
But the comments coming from Loughlin’s family are something that I think I should take note of, to some extent.
According to HotAir.com: “’Lori is used to getting what she wants,’ says the family source. ‘This is why she got in trouble in the first place. She got fixated on getting her girls into USC.’… ‘For her, there was no other way… They needed to be at USC. It was very important for her to be able to say that her girls were at USC.’ For Loughlin, 54, ‘it was absolutely a status thing’ for her daughters to attend the elite Los Angeles university, where the admission rate was 13 percent in March 2018, the family source says. ‘And the fact that she wanted the girls to have things that she never had growing up.’”
Well, I guess getting a bad reputation is something Lori did not have growing up, so I’m sure her daughters appreciate it.
Jokes aside, I really just want to focus on that whole “it was absolutely a status thing” comment. I, for one, am not really surprised at all about that sort of mindset. Of course it was a status thing! For the Hollywood elite, sending their kids to college is not so that they can get an education (God knows colleges don’t offer that anymore). It’s about prestige. It’s about being able to tell people “Mmm, yes, my son is studying at Hhhhhaaaaaarrrrvvvaaaaarrrrdddd.” (Just imagine saying that in the most obnoxious and snooty voice possible while holding a glass of wine or champagne). It’s about being able to tell people “my child is better than your child”. Basically, it’s the adult, yet still very childish version of “my dad can beat up your dad.”
These people are incestuous, as I’ve established. In this case, that means they are entirely codependent on one another and on one another’s approval and satisfaction. Why do you think people like Harvey Weinstein would so often champion women’s rights while simultaneously doing unspeakable things to them in private? It’s because they seek one another’s approval and sending kids off to prestigious colleges is part of acquiring some bragging rights, at least for the ones who are old enough to have children going to college.
To these people, it’s shameful if their kids don’t go to an elite school. It’s shameful if, as with the case of Lori Loughlin’s daughter, their child has a YouTube channel about make-up tutorials that draws in millions of people and can be a legitimate source of income. That’s not elite; that’s not special. Her parents need to be able to tell their friends that their daughter attends a highly exclusive and prestigious university, studying the various genders of a tree and getting barely passable grades.
If they can tell other people that sort of thing, they feel special and prestigious themselves. It is, as the family source says, a status thing.
But it’s petty. Even if Loughlin and Huffman had gotten their children legitimately enrolled into her school, the reasons behind it all are still insanely petty and sad. These are people that depend entirely on what others think about them. If there is someone out there who MIGHT make fun or gossip about their child not going to a prestigious school (which highlights Loughlin’s and Huffman's narcissism that she might think people think about them all the time), they can’t possibly take it and will go to any means, even illegal ones, to avoid being shamed about it.
Well, despite what prestige or status you get out of telling people your child goes to an elite school, there is no greater status or more prestige than in being able to call yourself a follower of Christ and a child of God.
All the Loughlins and Huffmans of the world get out of bragging about where their child is being indoctrinated is just that: bragging rights. In reality, no one honestly cares about that. Why would they? The people the Loughlins tell this stuff to are just as self-centered and narcissistic and incestuous as they are, so why would they be impressed by such a thing? If anything, they might get envious (which honestly might also be what the Loughlins and Huffmans sought, which makes it even more petty and sad), but certainly not impressed.
But that is all they can get out of that. If, however, you are a child of God and a follower of Christ, your rewards far exceed that of “bragging rights”.
Namely, what you get is access to the most prestigious and hard-to-access place in all of existence: Heaven. I might not be able to get into Hhhhaaaarrrvvvaaaarrrddd, but I know I can and will get into Heaven due to the only requirement for doing so is to receive Christ as your Lord and Savior. I’ve done that, and I continuously do my best to obey the Lord, so I know I’ll get into Heaven. But I can’t say the same for these people.
All that is required to enter the most coveted area in all of existence is the receiving of Christ Jesus into our hearts, that He would forgive our sins and redeem us in the Eyes of the Lord.
And yet, not everyone does it. Now, I won’t go much into that, since that’s a topic on its own and I know full-well why people don’t do it, but it should be pointed out that the most logical thing anyone can do is to follow Jesus Christ.
But in any case, the sort of reward you get out of being a Christian is eternal life at the side of God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. There is no greater status than that of being a Christian. And I do not mean an earthly status. Of course, being a Christian will lead people into a life of persecution by wicked people, so it is not an earthly status where one can receive the benefits of it immediately. However, the status, the rewards, come in the form of a rejoicing Father who welcomes His lost sheep.
Personally, I’d much rather appease the Lord than brag to Man about what I can do or have done. I’d much rather follow Christ than receive any form of status from Leftist Hollywood.
“For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
