Hollywood sign on hillsideThe founder of a Hollywood-based ministry who has monitored the entertainment industry for decades is using the election of Donald Trump to point people to real hope.

Most of Tinseltown remains shell-shocked following Hillary Clinton's stunning defeat at the hands of Donald Trump in the presidential election last week. Many celebrities – Lena Dunham, Joy Behar, Danny Glover, Cher, Harry Belafonte, Madonna, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Jay Z, for example – spoke out against a Trump presidency leading up to the election. Many have continued to voice their displeasure since.

Media critic Dr. Ted Baehr is editor-in-chief of Movieguide and chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission. He has been around Hollywood elites for quite some time.

"A lot of them make these statements, and some of them think that it's funny when they make them and don't intend them," he explains. "Some of them are seriously bothered and calling for revolution – some of them say they're going to move out of the country."

Dunham, for example, promised to move to Vancouver, Canada, if Trump won. She has since backed away from that vow. Comedian Amy Schumer suggested she'd move to Spain, actor Samuel L. Jackson to South Africa, and singer Cher (jokingly) to Jupiter.

Baehr, Ted (Movieguide)After the election and the Trump victory, Baehr wrote an article on Movieguide.org saying those celebrities should move to the only country that will give them peace.

"And that's the Kingdom of God, which is right here amongst them," he tells OneNewsNow. "And they don't have to worry about immigration; all they have to do is call on the name of Jesus and they don't even need a visa. They just get a free gift of being part of the Kingdom where they can be at peace and have a better life."

Baehr says he's never let go of the fact that behind all the popularity and money, Hollywood is made up of people who just need Jesus.
