Actor Brendan Fraser, whose career has seen a recent renaissance after several years out of circulation, emerged from the proverbial wilderness with a seeming willingness to speak unfettered by the worries of career repercussions. On a recent trip to Disney’s Epcot Center in Orlando, FL Fraser took the occasion of speaking on stage during the park’s candle-lit Christmas party to preach on the love of Jesus Christ.
As reported by RedState, Fraser, with a rather fearless display in the proverbial heart of the leftist-compromised entertainment industry demonstrated uncommon courage as guest narrator at the procession.
He began, “For all the miracles of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace himself was a man, a human being, and he walked through this world in the most human way possible, with love.”
He told the gathered crowd from the stage, “He didn’t have much, but what He did have, He shared. It became plenty.”
“Food, water, shelter, care. He met the world around Him with empathy. He saw hunger and shared the food from His plate. Saw thirst, poured for them from His own cup. Saw sickness and offered His time for their healing, soothed them with his human hands.”
Fraser continued, “Jesus Christ found it in his earthly heart to give of himself to the people who loved him, and even to the people who betrayed him, to all people, that a baby in a manger could grow to become a man who taught a world of people what it means to love one another.”
He concluded by describing the duality of Christ as exhibiting the love of God through the hands of man, even his betrayers, to all people and observed to the audience that this is the true spirit of Christmas and that it lives in the actions and teachings of Christ.
“That’s the spirit of this season, and it is inside each and every one of us.
The greatest joy of being human is to love one another, and when we share that love, that is the greatest gift of all. Joy to the world! The Lord is come! Let Earth receive her King!”
The star who made his mark with his prolific work in the 90s and early 2000s fell out of favor with the Hollywood elite and has since his resurgence taken on several controversial and high-risk roles. Most recently in November, he was widely lauded for spurning the Golden Globe Awards after his nomination was rumored for his starring role in “The Whale.”
He explained at the time that his “mother didn’t raise a hypocrite,” and that given his history with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, namely its response to his sexual assault allegations against former President Philip Berk led to his refusal to attend.
“I have more history with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association than I have respect for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. No, I will not participate,” he said according to The Daily Wire. “It’s because of the history that I have with them. And my mother didn’t raise a hypocrite. You can call me a lot of things, but not that.”
