Paramount + ‘the Good Fight’ series has atheist begs God to let Biden win
The Paramount + drama “The Good Fight” featured a rare admission of faith on its part atheist in an attempt to elect Democrat Joe Biden as president.
The fifth season of the long-running drama officially premiered on Thursday with the episode “Previously On”. In a clip retrieved by Newsbusters, the scene involved lead character Diane Lockhart, played by Christine Baranski, watching the 2020 election in real time, courtesy of CBS. CBS real-life presenter Major Garrett described himself as he stepped out of the script to describe Lockhart having a “coronary event of some sort” while watching the updates.

Lockhart then turns his gaze upward and pleads for God.
“My God, you know I don’t believe in you, but I’ll believe in you if Joe Biden wins,” Lockhart exclaims. “I’m sorry, I know that is not what Jesus taught. There is nothing in the New Testament that says ‘believe in me, and I will make your candidate win.’ But I need Joe Biden to win. I’m sorry, my God, but I do. I need a little faith. “
“The Good Fight” has often promoted left-wing beliefs in the past, to the point of openly calling for violence against political opponents. Previously, the drama had been criticized for an episode that promoted the words “Assassination” and “Donald Trump” together as well as a episode who said “some speeches require a more visceral response”.

It has also followed a pattern common in Hollywood and media circles to ridicule or condemn religious thought, except where it is politically useful. Likewise, various media from past have systematically condemned religious groups and beliefs, only to defend Biden for his “deeply Catholic” faith.
“The Good Fight” is a spin-off series from CBS’s political drama “The Good Wife”. It is broadcast exclusively on Paramount +.
