The Last of Us director Peter Hoar recently admitted to tricking audiences in order to push gay propaganda.

In an interview with Inverse, regarding the third episode of the series, Hoar was asked how he approached directing actors Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett throughout the episode.

As part of his answer, Hoar stated, “Sometimes you have to sort of trick the rest of the world into watching these things before they’re like, ‘Oh, my God, it was two guys. I just realized.’ I think then they might understand that it’s all real. It’s just the same love.”

It is not the same love. What the show and Hoar are trying to depict as love is anything but. What they are depicting is the sin of lust and sodomy. 

To elucidate this point further Pope John Paull II and The Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith published Considerations Regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognitions to Unions Between Homosexual Persons.

The letter states, “The Church’s teaching on marriage and on the complementarity of the sexes reiterates a truth that is evident to right reason and recognized as such by all the major cultures of the world. Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It was established by the Creator with its own nature, essential properties and purpose. No ideology can erase from the human spirit the certainty that marriage exists solely between a man and a woman, who by mutual personal gift, proper and exclusive to themselves, tend toward the communion of their persons. In this way, they mutually perfect each other, in order to cooperate with God in the procreation and upbringing of new human lives.”

After providing ample evidence to this point, the letter says, “There are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God’s plan for marriage and family. Marriage is holy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law. Homosexual acts ‘close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.'”

In conclusion the letter declares, “The common good requires that laws recognize, promote and protect marriage as the basis of the family, the primary unit of society. Legal recognition of homosexual unions or placing them on the same level as marriage would mean not only the approval of deviant behaviour, with the consequence of making it a model in present-day society, but would also obscure basic values which belong to the common inheritance of humanity.”

Despite this obvious truth, actress Bella Ramsey revealed the show would continue to push sin as normal behavior. 

She told GQ, “I know people will think what they want to think. But they’re gonna have to get used to it. If you don’t want to watch the show because it has gay storylines, because it has a trans character, that’s on you, and you’re missing out.”

“It isn’t gonna make me afraid. I think that comes from a place of defiance,” she added.

Her fellow actress Storm Reid also recently told Variety, “I think Bella put it perfectly a couple of weeks ago: ‘If you don’t like it, don’t watch.’ There’s so many other things to worry about in the world.”

“I think being concerned about who people love is just absurd to me. I just don’t — I will never understand it. I don’t get it,” she added.

Clearly, Hoar knows that it is natural to reject homosexuality because it is indeed unnatural and goes against “the natural moral law.” It’s why he honestly stated he needed to trick audiences into trying to accept sin as something true and just when it simply is not.

To paraphrase another writer, if something is natural and pure, one would not need to trick someone in order to make them believe it. What’s more likely the case is Hoar is trying to justify his own sinfulness, but at the same time wants to also spread it to others.

What do you make of Hoar’s honesty that he’s trying to trick audiences into accepting gay storylines?
