As non-believers from outside religion we easily observe characters in movies and television being portrayed (either overtly or subtly) as Christian. The thing is that so many Christians don't see this; either because of their belief that they are being persecuted, or because they completely overlook the subtle cues.
As I see it most of Hollywood is attempting to keep the Christian portrayal mostly neutral and non-specific in an attempt at general appeasement and to avoid alienating any one sect. Christians can self-identify and relate to a nondescript *Christian* on screen; but a Catholic doesn't get that connection to a *Baptist* character, or an Episcopalian to a *Mormon* character, etc, etc.
I'm looking for a source list that could help me backup this observation with some facts. I feel I can confidently claim that Christians are portrayed in majority, but I need some numbers to verify my claim holds up. Has anyone ever seen a list of the religiosity of characters from movies and television?
So far The Googles have failed me. That, or my own brain in wording my searches.
Even "Touched by an angel" didn't specify christianity, that I recall.
You should watch Orange is the New Black then. Nothing subtle about their portrayal on that show. Please note that this clip is a massive spoiler alert
